Oh, and there was the question about how many people were staffing the 111 line, ashie claimed not to have the figures to hand, but would endeavour to find them, then when asked again by moulton 6 weeks later, still said he didnt have the figures to hand. Moulton promised to hold hom to his promise of releasing them but never did for some reason

We have said it many times, he is the most dangerous of people, complete and utter belief in himself with no ability to self-criticise.  

He still hasn't declared yet, has he?  I would like to think he wants time to be with his family and write his memoirs.

You are completely right.  I don’t think I have ever heard him accept anything he has said or done has been wrong or could even have been improved on.

The ability to admit (and learn from) errors or mistakes is important in any walk of life.  For a politician it is crucial.

I also find it tends to earn others respect much more than simply telling lies and claiming to be perfect all the time.

The love for DA from so many is one of life’s great mysteries to me.

He has probably already shredded all his notes!

Well, that's him brutally (and accurately?) analysed.

Can the others all be similarly dealt with before we have to decide who is worthy of our vote?

If you just assume they're ALL total pricks, you won't go far wrong.

Frankly, DA doesn't have the wherewithal to admit when he's wrong, or even if he simply doesn't know.

It's far easier to bluster your way around until the topic wanders off. If you try and re-visit it, you're told it has already been answered.

He is certainly making a total tit of himself regarding the UK green list, particularly the issue of Manx residents going to the Balearics, Malta and Madeira and other destinations. What’s he going to do? Jail them? He will end up with egg on his face and have lots of Manx martyrs.

Hearing several stories of the GMP being particularly unwelcoming towards visitors.

Witnessed it myself in town last night. Locals chosing to go to packed bars and then complaining at people who have come here and are spending in our economy telling them that they should be wearing masks and weren’t welcome.

Embarrassing.  People have lost their minds.  Anyone who believes they are really at any significant risk now needs to give their head a wobble.

And people who keep talking about “the rest of the world” still having masks and restrictions need to pick up an atlas and a newspaper.

Significantly more of the worlds population are continuing to live without masks and distancing than those who are.

Oh, you mean like gaslighters do?

He hasn’t and his Emperors Clothes are getting a bit threadbare now and I think he knows it. It was his sister that lobbied for his MBE at the height of the covid wave was it not? But in the end he doesn’t seem to be that successful in engaging with real people who haven’t been pre-scared by his own pandemic messaging.

Well, the places that don't have masks and restrictions generally have either high levels of vaccination, stringent border controls and testing or both. To someone from the UK, 8 countries are open, 111 have restrictions and 102 have their borders closed.

Which of the rest of the world, bar the US, don't have masks and restrictions, whilst having open borders? I think you'll find the number is slimmer than you think.

The US is arguably an outlier, being formed of such a diverse set of state governments. They also had COVID rip through, and are quite far along in their vaccination program. Out of everyone over 12, 64% of them have had a first dose, and 55% of them have had a second. Note that in the UK, there's a big bias towards cases in the younger age groups, where the plan seems to be 'let it rip through the kids, they're resilient enough, hopefully'. I wonder if their geography and generally big indoor spaces also influence things too. You don't have to be anywhere near people if you don't want to be, almost everything is drive through.

Here’s my prediction - I reckon he won’t stand on the premise of a shoo-in to a guaranteed Lego seat. There’s bound to be a minimum of 2. Newly elected MHKs particularly those ex MLCs are bound to be in awe of Ashie and will vote him in.

Probably followers of IOMNP Facebook. Close the Boarders!

Sad, Pathetic and Predictable
