Ouch, this thread is back. Not unexpected I suppose. 

Have you never heard the term whistle-blowing? Dr G. tried every avenue and was well aware of what was at risk on her island. She isn't doing this for publicity, she's been offered far better gigs tha

With respect, you are. Without @rachomics on island PCR testing for covid would not have happened when it did, if at all. Of course, Rizwan Khan and Steve Doyle were vital too - sorry don’t know Dr Sh

I’ll be very surprised if HQ hadn’t already been briefed on what to say if that question was ever asked, Paul wanted to see HQ squirm and was left completely disappointed, I’m not sure what he or anyone else expected to be honest.

If anyone wants a full explanation or feels someone should be held accountable then write a letter to your MHK, write a letter to the department responsible, start a petition, there are many ways to make your voice heard, but doing it at a live press conference and trying to put someone on the spot is probably one of the worst.

It would only be filed in the Ashy shredder!

anyone catch Dr G on BBC?

Nobody is indispensable. Some clever people out there, but nobody should try to hold a nation to randsome. She is good, but not unique.

It was free advice Nov 15th. Commonsense even.

Events have shown lockdown was highly likely avoidable.

Glad I am still on your “ ignore” list. Not easily bought, sorry.

In the field of genomics on the Isle of Man she's fairly unique.

I don't think Dr Glover has, at any stage, tried to "hold us to ransom". Quite the opposite, in fact.

You may disagree with her opinion, or you may disagree with how she expresses it. But don't say things that aren't really true.

Given her "spat" it's unsurprising that she's taking her chance to say she told them so. It's a shame the BBC press conference attendee isn't so robust when they get the chance to ask HQ directly.

Just childish to be honest. She did explain to me in a PM and I do admire her for her qualifications, but publicly washing your laundry is not quite cricket. I have no personal issue with her as I have told her.

I think you are, by government already.

You can't defend the obvious.

 

How can one be bought by Government?  Your hatred of our Government is obvious and unsettling. I am not going to try to guess what went wrong , but you are not  taking it well . Are you OK ?
