I hereby declare my intention to stand for Chief Minister of the Isle of Man to serve this wonderful, great, good-looking manx public, who never moan, or complain, or have bigoted opinions.

 

The answer to this problem is so unbelievably simple, step up to the podium and announce...

 

  • ALL WORKERS WHO ARE ABLE TO REASONABLY WORK FROM HOME MUST DO SO IN ORDER TO LIMIT ANY WORKPLACE ENVIRONMENT TRANSMISSION
  • HOSPITALITY BUSINESSES ARE HEREBY ENFORCED TO ENABLE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND MASK USE, BUT MAY STILL CONTINUE TO OFFER RELATIVELY NORMAL SERVICE.
  • SOCIAL HOUSEHOLD MIXING IS SUITABLE AND PERMITTED, ALTHOUGH NUMBERS MIXING AT ANY ONE TIME INDOORS IS LIMITED TO 10 PERSONS.
  • CLOSE DOUGLAS TOWN CENTRE ON THE WEEKENDS, SAVE PEOPLES NOSTRILS FROM DECAY AND LIVERS FROM DECOMPOSITION & POISON DUE TO OUR GLORIOUS ISLANDS AWFUL DEMOGRAPHIC AGED 18-50. WANNABE GANG$T3RZ.
  • CONSTRUCTION MAY CONTINUE WORKING, ENFORCE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND MASK WEAR WHERE THIS IS PRACTICIBLE AND REASONABLE. 

THIS IS HOW YOU MITIGATE AND ENFORCE TO ENABLE A RELATIVELY "NORMAL" LIFESTYLE BUT STILL TAKE REASONABLE PRECAUTIONS WHERE POSSIBLE TO M I T I G A T E SPREAD.

TO VOTE FOR ME AS YOUR NEXT RIGHT HONORABLE GENTLEMAN CHIEF MINISTER OF THE ISLE OF MAN MR HUGH G. RECTION JUST SEND £20 IN AN ENVELOPE TO P.O BOX 69 DOUGLAS ISLE OF MAN.

IT REALLY IS AS SIMPLE AS THAT. SO MANY WHINGING F*****S ON HERE TRYING TO BE ALL POMPOUS AND CLEVER. LETS GET BACK TO BASICS, BUTTER THE BREAD LOVINGLY, SLAP THE HAM ON THE BUTTERY YEAST AND GOBBLE THAT BUTTY. 

NO NEED FOR IT TO BE ANY MORE COMPLEX THAN THAT. 

AS ALWAYS THANK YOU FOR LISTENING, NOW FOR QUESTIONS FROM THE MEDIA AND FIRST UP TODAY IS PORK-... SORRY PAUL MOULTON FROM ISLE OF MAN TV, FASTER MIND PAUL GOOD AFTERNOON.

PAUL MOULTON : G-G-G-G-GOOD AFTERNOON C-C-C-CHIEF MINISTER CAN YOU PLEASE E-E-E-E-ELABORATE ON THE CURRENT R-R-R-R-RESTRICTIONS YOU'VE BROUGHT IN TODAY.... WHY ARE SOME PEOPLE ALLOWED TO CARRY ON WORKING OUTDOORS AND WITH OTHERS AND SOME PEOPLE HAVE TO STAY INDOORS ON THIS WONDERFUL WEATHER AND WORK, S-S-S-S-S-SURELY THAT IS UNFAIR?? DURRRRRR DURR DUR DUR DURRRRRR

WELL THANKS FOR THAT QUESTION PAUL AND WELL THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE, WE ARE TAKING MITIGATING STEPS AND WE PLAN TO REDUCE TRANSMISSION WHERE POSSIBLE BUT ALSO LET THE ISLAND CONTINUE TURNING THE COGS FOR THE BIG BOYS UP IN DANDARA HQ THAT SPANK OUR LATEX COVERED, BUTTERED UP ARSES IN RETURN FOR A BROWN ENVELOPE OR FIVE. I THINK IVE COVERED ALL ANGLES THERE PAUL AND NOTHING IS UP FOR INTERPRETATION? DOES MINISTER FOR PUBLIC HEALTH DOCTOR HENRYSKETTA EWWWW-ART HAVE ANYTHING TO ADD?

HENRYSKETTA EWWW-ART : NO THANK YOU CHIEF MINISTER RECTION I THINK YOU'VE ERECTED THAT POINT VERY CLEARLY, CONCISELY AND I HAVE NO FURTHER BOLLOCKS TO ADD.

.......

 

So Manx Forums, have I made my viewpoint and mock-up press briefing for when I am undoubtedly elected Chief Minister HRH Hugh. G. Rection. Clear?

 

Thanks and Fastyr Mie. 

You've got my vote

Just read an article about Indian "COVID Hell"

Granted deaths will be under reported, but at the moment in hell, with limited and health care and poor vaccine roll out the death rate translates to roughly one death on the island - every two weeks.

 

I don't think translating India's reported deaths to a Manx per capita equivalent tells the whole story.  Their hospitals are running out of oxygen and people are spilling over into the streets while trying to get treatment.  Doesn't sound good.  I've got colleagues here who are very concerned over their friends and family back home.

Went for my neuro out patient clinic appointment this morning. Had to drop something off at Palatine surgery first. They had locked doors, ring doorbell, full PPE.

Clinic at Newlands, shared facility and waiting area for anticoagulant clinic, epilepsy/neuro, diabetic/endocrine and autoimmune/rheumatology,  nothing. And one visiting consultant ( over from Walton for 2 days, key worker ) stuck in with patients and student doctor in an unventilated windowless cell.

Palatine seems to have been like that since last year !! My wife’s& in laws  a patient & she said you really have to insist if you need a face to face appointment

Its obviously not a like for like comparison, but I thought it gave some perspective to the doom that is being assumed.

It is awful for those in India, but I honestly don't see the headlines as being appropriate.  I don't belive that given where we and the UK are that we would ever end up in the same situation.  Maybe I am wrong, but we pinned so much on the vaccine rollout and now people are still scared by a few cases.

I went to the chemist earlier and couldn't get in without going back to the car and digging an old crumpled up mask out of the glove box.  Nuts

Chief Minister "We all knew that we would see more cases in the community".

Well actually no, we didn't. We could be in the same freedom as we had after lockdown one. Had someone not left the fucking back door wide open and not been on top of their game.

Yeah we did.  They told us it was expected in case anyone hadn't worked it out for themselves.

If someone breaks isolation then nothing can stop it other than quarantine hotels!

Personal choices now as Howie says

And begs the question, why didn’t we exit lock down with mitigation measures, masks, distancing, capacity limits, signing in for tracing, 3 weeks ago.

Just because they told us first, doesn't give a reason to drop their guard. That is exactly what happened. Bollox, it's going to come back so ICBA.

I've been thinking the same thing, what difference is it from last week when they were stalling lockdown ending due to one case they couldn't trace

There are people dying on trolleys and in the back of ambulances outside hospitals in Delhi because they haven't got beds. It is almost certainly worse in areas with less resources. The headlines seem absolutely appropriate given the situation

No idea.  I have said previously that making it clear to people we weren't eradicating anymore once they got cases to a low level, rather than making people think we were clear again, would have been a much better option.

It was the perfect chance to transition, and they missed it.

1300 deaths a day in a population of 1.36 BILLION people.
