Personally I think a few women in Comin would be beneficial and more representative of population and may improve some of the crap policies being put forward 

There's nothing stopping women standing already, so clearly most don't want a career in politics. Maybe they don't want to ask for votes, maybe they don't have any policies, maybe the thought of earni

I really couldn't care less what gender they are or indeed what colour or etc etc they are. It would just help to have some decent candidates to vote for, instead of the usual tribe of dribbling idiot

I would be very surprised if Claire Wells on Douglas Council doesn't stand for election next year.  Good on detail, can stand her ground, very knowledgable about housing. Go Claire.

Housing is local politics not national.

One thing is for sure, positive discrimination - changing the rules or skewing the process to advantage one applicant over another - is immoral.


Totally agree. Although some of the posts on here might tend to suggest that there are still some perceptions that may need a little work yet.:flowers:

That's a real hissingsid style piece of misogyny.

People should progress/get jobs/promotions etc on their own merits.

True. Very difficult to assess that though with politicians when all we see are them canvassing and their manisfetos, which could be written by anyone.

Several postings on here suggest some of our politicians are not quite the shining stars envisaged.

Does this really apply to political people.

I mean ffs look at the men in Tynwald.

Most of them need someone to tie their own shoe laces.

Too give an example Dr Allinson should have asked how many schools have victor halam buildings

before engaging his mouth.
