Gob on her, has she?

She's really nice, her hearts in the right place, she'll do the Island proud if she becomes a politician. But shes got some steel for sure.

Sort of name that would look good up in lights at the Grand Ole Opry.

Twangy slide guitar and a scratchy old fiddle....’Put yer hands together y’all, it’s Joney Faragher and the Foxdale Miners with ‘I ain’t got no hope at the Hope’...

You sound like a fan, Teapot. But then you're a fan of Liverpool too....................

Speaking of records, is this the first time there has ever been a double by-election on the Island?  (Assuming that is what will happen).

I have been reliably informed that there were three separate by-elections in the space of 3 months in Rushen (two resignations, one death).

And during all this there was a double by-election in another constituency when the two sitting MHKs resigned (bit of a story) with one being returned along with another, unopposed.

And Liverpool are WINNERS!

I'm no fan of the Manx Labour Party, it's been Cretneys domain for a long long time, but I'd say there is some hope for the future.

I heard grumblings last week about her abandoning the constituancy prior to lock down. 

Allegedly she left the Island before the borders closed so that she could have access to medical treatment if needed and has not returned.

Don't know if it is true, and sympathise if requires specialist treatment, but so did other people.

Josem might have a go? Same party, same area.

 

You could do worse. I podcast with Michael, and whereas he is a bit too liberal for me, he’s switched on enough and can hold an argument well.

MLP has elected Joney Faragher to leader, hopefully she'll stand, she'd take NO SHIT if she got in.

Does she live in the Borough? Seems to be the main prerequisite

If that’s true, jumped before pushed starts to emerge.

Hmm. He doesn't understand statistics very well, and thinks the ending of free movement of British people through Europe as a consequence of Brexit is a good thing, so he's probably not as bright as he tries to make out.

It IS a good thing because the corollary is that it sees the end of the free movement of EU people INTO Britain which was a major reason for the success of the BREXIT referendum.

Joney lives in Laxey. She is a lovely person, but no MHK, a low grade single issue lobbyist at best. Not the sort of person that the Isle of Man needs. As you say the good people of Pulrose are hardly likely to vote for an outsider.
