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

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 don't disagree

Top tip though, posting this sort of thing within 12 hours of creating your account will draw suspicious comments

I’m sure it will. However I heard about it the other day and thought I’d see what all the fuss was about. I’m amaized at the negativity. There don’t seem to be many solutions to problems on here.

I've just listened to her interview with Paul Moulton, in relation to her dad she says that the constituents will be getting a "two for one deal"! I think it's fair yo say he is central to her campaign...

So twice the old boys club then FFS !!

Her present role is about £30K from the jobtrain post and her future pay could be £60K, so worth a little effort. In the same way Rob fills salt bins. 

Every little helps

£65k I think. But why do people all think politicians are in it for the money. I recon there’s easier ways to earn £65k. Just watched her interview, nervous (bless her - she’ll get better) but the thing for me is there was no real substance - no good answers to questions. But if MLP are writing their policies I guess she can’t commit to any? I wish her luck. She seems genuine.

Err, she says "Some people have said to me 'it's like a two for one deal'". Which isn't what you wrote.

The interview is here

Absolutely.

 

 What exactly did Cretney do in the 30 years he was on the payroll.  yes we know he liked bikes and shows and DJ events and was a shop keeper, but 30 years and then left when the kitchen got hot.  She will probably just be his political puppet.  Let’s be having some new blood, using her dads name to get a job is old school, voters are not that  daft. 
 

waiting to here what pot we get to vote on here in the south.

Last time I voted for Moorhouse figuring as a teacher he had half a brain. Sadly that is true he does have half a brain but that is half more than his colleague !

I would vote for a slug in preference to some of the candidates we have had the choice of ! I sincerely hope some people who at least are going to try and make a difference, stand this next time !!

I heard nothing which would make me think we would get anything prepared to upset the apple cart and drag Government away from the self serving gravy train it is !

The corridors of power will be delighted to see her stand !

Hello Manx Forums!

Sarah Maltby here, honestly it is me! 

Just wanted to answer some of the questions/queries that have been asked on this thread.

 

  1. I didn’t stand in the 2020 by-election as my youngest child had not yet started school. Although I have every confidence in my husband to manage the transitional handover, for me, it wasn’t the right time. 
  2. Secondly, I would have had to give up my job if elected. This would have left me in a very insecure position this year if I was not re-elected. I’m sure you can appreciate that as I do not have a business to fall back on this would have left my young family in a difficult financial and stressful position. I am a normal working person. 
  3. Yes, My Dad is David Cretney and No we did not plan the newspaper articles about his life and my declaration. The newspaper interview was done well before Christmas and we don’t get to choose when it’s released! Nor do we have a say on how a journalist writes their article. 
  4. My declaration was always going to be Jan 2021. This has been the plan since the GE in 2016! I have been politically  motivated since I was a kid, taking a more active part over the last 10 years. I have attended many of the Government roadshows and events held by various organisations and groups around the Island. I’m surprised we haven’t already met at one of these meetings.
  5. I declared early because I have a young family, work full time and there are 2500 houses to visit! I am a firm believer in 1-1 ‘meet and greets’ which is impossible at the moment and very frustrating. I did manage to visit 100-150 houses before the lockdown to simply introduce myself. This is very important to me and I want to leave enough time to personally visit every home. 
  6. I also want people to give me a fair shot. A late declaration would have looked like I was trying to get in on the back of who my dad is. That is 100% not what I want. This is about me. I feel I can’t do right for doing wrong with this one sadly. 
  7. The MLP are almost finished the latest policy manifesto so, when that is released I hope to share our ideas. The interview I gave with Paul Moulton was a little vague but, this is the reason why! A first ‘Live’ interview during a pandemic on top of normal life was a little nerve wracking so please give me time.
  8. I can tell these posts have not been made by anyone who knows me as anyone who does knows I am fiercely independent. I ain’t no puppet!! I have had 35 years of being the ‘daughter of’ rather than being introduced as myself. It becomes a little tiresome. Trust me!
  9. I bring with me my own professional experiences in mental health, education, health and social care. I have worked and volunteered in these sectors for 20+ years and hope anyone reading this gives me the opportunity to get to know me and my values and principles. 
  10. My family background is unavoidable and so it will occasionally be the focus of an interviewers questions. I don’t set the questions and nor do I want to. I’m sure I will get help delivering leaflets on the run to the election but surely this is ‘normal’ practice. I can’t exactly not include my Dad in my campaign team- it can only be done with the generous support of family and friends.

I think that’s it all covered, sorry if I have missed anything I’ll pop back on here tomorrow to check however, email is my preferred method of contact if anything needs to be brought to my attention urgently. 

In the meantime here are my contact details:
