We don't even want our young back at Christmas because of the loons - who would want to eventually return to an island and participate in growing its economy at the end of all this if you got a great big resounding “piss off and stay away” message from your homeland when you needed it most? The whole island is just showing how sad and insular most of its residents are. 

For clarity, how many actually return to grow the economy?

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

Then why post so many  emojis with the confused symbol then ? You don't change, do you. You did the same to  Neil Down a while back.

At least three of you up for a joint award.

Ive only been dipping in this last week as I've been doing some serious travelling, not much WiFi about and MT data roaming is switched off.

Yes, not many can afford MT's data roaming charges

Not an issue these days. Most phones are available as dual SIM. Just stick a data everywhere SIM in the other slot.

Currently just less than half but who can blame them if it’s even less in future when half the IOM seems to be happy for them to be banned from returning to their homeland like criminals who have had an exclusion order stuck on them?

You have to wonder when our Elephant in the room will get the heave ho.

The close down the world brigade will be absolutely delighted now as that sets a precedent. I’ve said for a long time now the TT won’t be running next year. It’s obvious as there will literally be people arming themselves with pitchforks and heading down to the Sea Terminal if there’s even a whiff of change on that side of things. They’ll be stomping on hands and throwing them back in the sea like the Hong Kong police. Unlike the Channel Islands (which has been sort of stuffed on this one) our focus and comfort zone seems to be aimed at closing down forever regardless of the longer term economic consequences.

Isn't our focus and comfort that the domestic economy remains open and unrestricted?

interesting shift in language the other day to "lets not write off the TT just yet..."
