OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

Rachel has tried every which way to re-offer her services. This last tweet wasn't the first time she's reached out. Government has made it very clear they do not want her to be involved. I want h

I think you'll find most so called anti-government rhetoric is focused on government-stupidity and government-selfishness. In recent times - under Brown, Bell and now Quayle - all too many govern

Seriously though: You vociferously complain about the CM. So which of the other potential candidates would you rather see take over and why?

It's easy to sound clever complaining (that's why bad standup comedians are always negative). It's much harder to say what specifically someone is in favour of. And it's seldom pithy or gets a laugh.

Are you in politics yourself?

Careful now.  She's one of the protected few.  She can say what she likes etc.

Yes, it is easy to find fault in any politician so I guess you really have to take a middlin' view of their performance. I think Howard hasn't been too bad in many respects, although my main criticism would be his inability to take criticism!

I’m in politics in the sense that I’ve negotiated having five teenage children who are all now in their 30s/40s and I’ve avoided inflicting harm on them, but in terms of existing Tynwald members, any of Cannan, Shimmins, Thomas, Ashford and Allinson would be vastly superior CMs to Quayle. A number of others would be at least as good (or bad depending on your outlook) and possibly better. Happy now?

Possibly over qualified.  

True. He can read, tie his own shoelaces, and pronounce ‘hyperbole’.

I don't know if anyone else has done this but i'm in just over 5 days of quarantine having returned from the UK. At the moment i'm living alone and i have to say the next 9 days or so are going to be a tough gig...might nip out to Maccys!

Do you have enough supplies, or someone who can shop for you?

I’m currently supporting a couple from the U.K.  They seem to be going through a lot of wine!

And, cross referencing to the Mental Health thread, there’s another way in which we’re storing up huge future demands on the mental health service.
