Bonds

Ah. More borrowing then to keep our energy costs higher for the long term c.f. current MUA bond situation.

If the Island had an asset that was valuable enough, would you sell it to fund the investment in renewable energy?

:(Is that down to just your personal political beliefs, or is it an item of LibVan policy that the Island shouldn't have/doesn't need felt museums and monorails?

Edited to add: I bet Manx Labour or the Greens would give us those things. 

Jessopp would have the monorail built in an instant. God bless the visionary.

Umm...

Is felt green?

Google tells me felt can be any colour.

But I also found that it isn't environmentally sustainable.

Take your felt fake news and shove it unbeliever.

Interestingly the Curran Report does call for an integrated bus and rail strategy

That's one they could be starting work on immediately, rather than just sticking a Tynwald Bill - near incomprehensible to the puiblic - out for  public consultation for a year

Indeed It does. How do we transition to those at the least cost to the taxpayer?

I would like to hear from Mr Cannan, Mr Shimmins, Mr Peake & Mr Henderson that they & their Channel Islands oppos in the Sterling zone have been in serious talks with UK Treasury & the Bank of England to discuss how a once-in-three-hundred-years reset of the Isle of Man economy might be structured & financed

I like Josem, but I wish he’d stop trying to play politics and saying baseless shite to win hearts and minds. Do it properly man!

Give it a few days and the Pulley lot will be singing All hail Michael Josemmm.

Simple , IOM becomes part of Lancashire or Northern ( soon to be Southern ) Ireland and the Channels can pick France or England. I’d go for France , better cuisine.

Describes himself as a 'man of integrity'. Sigh. Good luck to him though, I hope he gets in.
