Spat between Chief Minister and Dr Glover

It is.

1. If you were watching the broadcast you will have missed about half a minute of the letter because there was a cut in the sound transmission

2. There are two main areas of silence. One of which, incidentally, was not on the recording made by Paul Moulton at Isle of Man TV.

3. These two areas of silence on the Government broadcast are replicated in the Freedom of Information transcript of the reading out of the letter. viz [inaudible]

4. The FOI reply linked to the Youtube. This was of little help to the person making the FOI request because clearly they already had the link, and in any case they were asking for sight of the letter and they had already transcribed the first part of the letter in their FOI request.

5. The inaudible sections may or may not be relevant to the FoI request

6. The letter was not personal correspondence as it was directed to "Dear Minister" and was sent by a staff member of the department

7. The letter was destroyed (shredded) by the Minister

8 The matter would appear to be approaching social media  'gate' status.

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 quite enjoy Manx Forums. There's nothing wrong with a bit of satire.  Happy to defend myself, wherever that may be. I grew up knocking around Willaston so while you may believe that someone wit

I think so, and in parallel to #lettergate investigation we should have a  #shreddergate investigation. Two great stories for the press which could run along side syndicated for print version of @rachomics now public Tynwald testing talk.

maybe a blue Pfizer product would help? Or perhaps it's your unfeasibly large testicles getting in the way, Buster :)

Credit where it is due, and to be fair, the Isle of Man is one of the few countries in the world where election fraud has actually been proven, whereas most places it seems to go on but the authorities just pretend it didn't  happen.

There are interesting parallels too with the Ramsey Group Practice statements published in the paper recently.

On RGP complaints the Facebook statement says:

“As you can appreciate this has been upsetting for us all.”

So much so that some of our long serving team members were going to resign.”

“Although these patients are in the minority the incidents are increasing”

”We are all the same staff that were your heroes a few months ago, being praised and thanked for keeping you all safe but now sadly we seem to be on the end of some very nasty comments which have been directed at us all.”

On Dr Glover letter snapshots include:

”Highly insulting”

”Social media comments, why do I bother?”

”Think about the demoralizing effect ill informed comments can have on those who have worked day in day out to keep everyone safe”

”A kick in the teeth”

Anyone starting to think the phantom letter writer has been very very busy recently?

This was my concern. Right now, there is no way to know whether he was reading from a blank piece of paper or not. 

Rachael Glover. Was it you who submitted the FOI?   Why are you bothered.  Do you think it beyond realm of possibilities that someone you worked with may be fed up of your opinion and receive negativity and demoralised in the work place.  If I had written to the Minister I would be made up that he binned my letter before rats started running up the drainpipe looking for something to munch on, or someone!!
