Re the supposed desire that David Ashford expressed as becoming a Tory MP when at school. (Think William Hague)

Have you taken the many years depreciation charge into account?

Are you taking into account the fact that it never worked from the moment it was handed over to DBC? Who then also paid up over a sob story that the "manufacturers" would go bust if they didn't?

Your hero squandered an eighth of a million of ratepayers often hard-earned money. Try taking that into account.

Also it's not just Assface who deserves the stick, that dickhead education minister who said 'schools are perfectly safe go to school' only to shut them 2 days later with 100 odd infections deserves a beating. In fact the whole fucking lot of them who MET VIRTUALLY while saying everything is fine 2 days before LD3 should be dumped out immediately.

Some of the mistakes have been massive. 

Your preposterous support is actually insane.

As you have been poisoned by the toxicity of some of the contributors to Manx Forums

The only poisoning I've suffered is by you beloved employer who are systematically destroying everything  that was once great about this Isle!

Some of us got completely screwed by the two avoidable lockdowns we've had this year. There's a lot of anger out there. You haven't a fucking clue.

It’s also worth noting the knock on effect it’s caused, most trades are booked up for at least the next 3 months, coupled with shortages/increasing costs of materials, so in a way even the office bods have been affected, they’ll be waiting longer and paying more to get jobs done.

There's nothing 'supposed' about it. It's why he went off to Edge Hill to study politics. Ask him about it, he does't tell lies.

Ask him about Prince Charles while you're at it.

It's an odd boy whose ambition at school is to become a Tory MP. 

Most certainly. And, ironically, it raises a red flag that here is an individual to keep a careful eye on.

Did he have his pin up on his bedroom wall?

Got an office job where you were able to work from home and your income was't affected?

There is a lot of frustration out there which everyone gets. 

Re “avoidable lockdowns” and being “ completely screwed”

There is a killer virus out there, difficult decisions have to be made. What is avoidable to some is unavoidable to others. Yes there was miscommunication re the IOMSPco issue but by and large the Island has been served well by those making the decisions. For example the vaccination programme is making good progress.
It serves no purpose venting your anger on office workers able to work from home and not having their income affected.

Well it was a ludicrous price to pay for such a machine in the first place, it’s hardly proved value for money which is how you’d normally offset depreciation values. I’m sure you’ll find a way to disagree with that though, because you tirelessly support every government decision made.

Is that the actual true story NB?

It's certainly my understanding of what went on. It was basically just a modified high-pressure rotary floor washer that you can pick up new for a few hundred pounds online. It was defective from the moment it was handed over, there was much to-ing and fro-ing with the manufacturer about getting it working properly, who then turned round and said that they'd go bankrupt (which they shortly did anyway) if they weren't paid. DBC paid up. At that point Gumclean were supposed to come back and fix it, they never did and have since folded (unsurprisingly).

The machine has proved to be useless from the outset and has lain gathering dust in corners of Corpy premises ever since until it was quiet enough to get rid without embarrassment.

John Wright has also posted on this in the Douglas North Election thread.
