ETA. An ideal opportunity to phase out the Post and save some money?.

It was never previously required other than to give Charlie Kerruish a job and keep him pissing out of the tent rather than in, IIRC.

Job for the boys the position serves no purpose to the Manx Public.

For club members a huge salary and the opportunity to dress up in a wig. 
About time it was disposed of.

Perhaps half the number on twice the salary it may attract some decent candidates then.

Yes. Not many agree with this but it is the way forward. At least double¬†their salary - attract the brainy and business-minded candidates who know how to steer a (sinking) ship in the right direction. The Moorhouses and Perkins of the world are not going to remove us from the absolute shite¬†show that is our flailing economy. I would vote for an unlikeable but¬†successful,¬†clever businessman¬†over a ‚Äėnice guy‚Äô ex-teacher/journalist/nurse type any day of the week - they¬†would have less of an inclination to be there for the money having already made it.¬†

All that essential travel too, in order to impart democratic process to all those savages in loincloths and strings of beads in those warm, far flung, fledgling civilisations.....

Word on the street has it that MLCs [some] are appalled at the idea Quayle might become LegCo chair

Mr Skelly is thought to be the 'stop Watterson' candidate
