Electioneering starting early,


Recommended Posts

Cretin Cretney  aka self appointed Minister of Fun as in a DJ has nominated his teaching assistant daughter for a ticket on the gravy train he rode so well.
 I have never heard of her which must be why she is knocking on doors so early.

Or perhaps she is motivated, sincere, hard-working and wants to give herself the best chance of success? I can understand why that may be a difficult concept for you to grasp of course.

I know Keiran pretty well, through the local music scene.  He’s a genuine guy - I have nothing to say about his past, as I didn’t know him then - who wants to see the island bettered for all. Yes, he

I can't let this go. You really are so very rude sometimes Dilli. Rude and judgemental. Gawd knows we are all judgemental at one level or another, but you are off the scale. You do know that ever

What constituency?  There were rumours about one of his daughters standing in Douglas South in the past I seem to remember.  But they're right that you need to start early - most seem to think you only need to start six weeks before and then are surprised how long it is to get round the constituency. 

(I make this point every five years.  No one ever takes any notice).

Of course it's also possible that she could be standing for the Council as the elections are in April (Covid willing).

HOORAY!

Agreed.  He's a bit liberal for me and unfortunately not my constituency. 

I'd vote for him if i could.  He seems pretty switched on and is willing to challenge the establishment.

Thought he was moving onto other things?

I think just stepping down from LibVan.  No word of not doing anything political - maybe just as an independent?

I've seen him post on MF before, so maybe he'll comment.

I'd vote for Josem, purely on the grounds he is as far removed from the old boys club as it is possible to get, and that imo is what we really do need, to move forward !

I wouldn't, because he consistently jumps to conclusions for sets of data that aren't there, oh, and he thinks Brexit and the ending of free movement was a good idea, oh and he thinks minimum alcohol pricing is a good idea, oh, and he's not in any way shape or form a 'liberal'. Oh, yeah, and he's far too sensitive to be a politician.

South Douglas for the Manx Labour Party.

Hopefully, Devon Watson will stand whatever Douglas East is now called. He's beginning to sound like a leader of the opposition in recent posts.

He's always been an excellent speaker. One of those that when he talks everyone listens. It will be a balance for him to ensure he doesn't do it too much and turn people off.  We're a fickle bunch.

Dare I declare it but Josem has gone up in my estimation, on the back of a couple of interviews. One being the weekend debate chaired by Moulton on IoMtv with Stokes from ITV and Robertshaw last November. He said some sensible things (honest!), as did Robertshaw, both being particularly scathing about the egos and power decision-making within government and the debacles of the prom and other projects especially.

He has a bit of independence about him, like that Watson fella.

I was gonna say similar. Him not being 'local' is a potential benefit. 

If i recall he actually did a politics degree or something similar.

Didn't he say recently he was going to run a charity or something social and presumably may rely on Government subsidy?

I think he could challenge and make a difference but in the end you have to take everyone with you. Chis Thomas told me that a long time ago. Could Josem take everyone with him? Not sure.

Look forward to seeing these new people attend Tynwald and Douglas council meetings in preparation for their standing, or maybe they don't really need to know what's current.
