The mindset of the current Manx bureaucracy is that there is nothing that can't be solved by having lots of meetings.  Those meetings don't actually have to decide anything or result in any actions, just their mere existence makes everything right and is sufficient.

I'd like to see Cregeen or Moorhouse in as Chief Minister.

And if necessary, call a meeting about having the meeting. All helps to justify time and jobs.

Minster Cannan: "The problem we are facing in this uncertain time is the uncertainty"

You can't argue with that!

Is he sure about that ?

Is anyone here playing bulls*t bingo. I've only got 3 more words to go.

How many transferred from JSA to other Benefits...?

Well we don't know, but there's nothing to say it would be more than the normal - if they were going to transfer people to hide things, that would have been more effective in previous months.  The good news is that the August figures haven't gone up as the various Covid schemes ended.  The detailed report isn't out yet (I would have expected it today) and that may give us a better idea of the job market.

There'll be financial patching up along the way but it's pretty much all being left to the next government I feel

It will be telling of confidence levels, how many decide not to stand for re election

Well Howie is not standing plus Skelly apparently not

If there’s a straight flush with Alf, then there really is a red light flashing!

We’ve effectively had four years of wait and see whilst spending on stuff, and now when the wolf is at the door, we are quite content to leave it another 12 months. And if the inertia of the current administration in getting spooked up is repeated, it will be 2 years before we have anything like a plan together. By that time, the world will have moved on and the island will be left bobbing in the wake. 

I so wish there was a more positive outlook. The place deserves it.

Fairly certain Alf will stand as he wants top job he just missed last time. Depending on the make up of keys I think he has a good chance, however a good bet maybe Thomas if the old yes men of Cregeen, Boot & Harmer get emptied
