A very high handed attitude. Usually the default attitude of some government muppet on a cushy number looking down at people on benefits who they think are a drain on their taxes. I assume now there’s just more “unemployable” people going to be around then is there? Right the way through this thread you’ve just consistently proved how out of touch you are with what’s actually happening in the IOM and around the borders specifically. IOM Bank laid about 10% of their staff off. Now we have the airport workers (just the private ones, not government workers naturally who will still get paid to do nothing). HSBC have laid a load off too. Many engineering jobs gone over lockdown. But it’s all ace isn’t it living in a bubble and the job losses have absolutely no link to either covid of the borders being closed. 

It's quite amusing the way you cherry pick (incorrectly) made up stats to suit your "free the island" agenda. Not all lay offs are down to covid. Just thought you'd like to know...

Can you guys start a separate thread titled "Jersey is ace - oh no it isn't" and leave this one to a discussion on IOM and the coronavirus?

...and I so wanted a long illustrious career at the DHSC   I run my own company so my involvement with the DHSC to set up and keep the COVID19 lab running wasn't exactly in the professional caree

I'll put a big disclaimer here that I'm not the person who decides who gets tested and when.  Saying that, I am a scientist who understands that if you test someone on the day they arrive and the

Are you saying that the govt workers should get laid off too, or that the "private ones" shouldn't?

What do you think should be done differently re the airport?

No. More ignorance from you. 200 due to the collapse of Flybe does not mean 200 Flybe workers. You made that up. 

Go and look at the government website and the monthly stats. There is always a boost to the figures in the summer due to school leavers. Around 1000 leave every year. Around 300 go to college. What do you think the rest do? 

The unemployable are not on disability. They are the unemployable. 

You should do some research and educate yourself before you accuse people of making things up. 

Absolute rubbish, 10/12 local cabin crew lost job in flybe demise, they had no local base and no airport workers lost jobs so do some research!!

the unemployment figures will be going up next few months from airport workers, finance sector, hospitality workers etc but don’t worry you say economy is doing well so I’m sure you will have words of comfort for them

Clearly I’m saying if there is no work at the airport you’d expect it to impact all staff equally not just kicking the privately employed ones out the door as you haven’t got the guts to deal with the others.

This was posted last year from a FOI request 


The numbers of staff employed by the Department at the Airport on full time, part time and zero hour contracts are:

Full time: 107
Part time: 6
Zero hour: None


The Numbers of Rescue and Fire Fighting staff employed at the Airport are:
Full time: 31
Part time: None
Zero hour: None


The Director of Ports and the Ports Business Manager have been excluded from the staff numbers as they are working in dual roles between the Airport and Harbours. The annual staff salary costs for the above Airport employees are as follows;
Airport staff salary costs are £6,745,972 in total.

The Rescue & Fire Fighting Services staff salarycost is £1,867,340.

so what are they all doing?

But who is the employer?  If it is not IOMG, then they have little say in the matter.

What will you say to the many unemployed on the island with a bleak future plus the 21 airport workers who lost their jobs today. Will you offer to pay their mortgages?

You have to be alive to be unemployed...

So now the UK are going to force unlicensed inoculation on the public, enforced by the armed forces. What do you think of that?

I think you must be reading different news sources to me.

Of course they are only a complete idiot would think otherwise. 

For clarity then, list all those lay offs that are down purely to covid and nothing else

They just think my post on how Sweden didn't lock down which made a massive difference to the number of fatalities but little or no difference to their economy is enough pages back that they can ignore it and carry on spouting their nonsense.
