Mmm. I guess that's for more qualified people than me. I wouldn't class someone broadcasting zoom calls on youtube from their bedroom as one though, but maybe I'm just getting old.

yeah I dunno either - grey area

Manx Labour Party General Election Manifesto 2021

Looks pretty 

sad that it’s a wish list fairly much everyone would agree with however it makes no attempt at all to explain how more can be provided for less. Apart from perhaps raising taxes which will drive investors away.

Just heard Sarah Maltby on radio saying how’s she’s been interested in politics since she was a teenager , she’s separate from her dad but he’s there as a mentor etc

Fair enough isn't it. What's your problem la'?

You should get out and enjoy the sun.

I just read that as a repeating of fact not a judgement

Everyone always asks how Labour plan to pay for helping people, but nobody ever asks how Conservatives plan to pay for corporate tax cuts and backhanders. Weird.

That’s the problem with elections, everyone promises everything that’s popular but no one really costs it out and details how it will be paid for.

Then they get elected and realize there’s no money to pay for the promise and this will be particularly so this coming years with Covid costs & pension shortfall

It's almost pick a Freemason time people, shall we pretend it isn't panto?

Creegen,Ashford and Peak now have to declare they are  Freemasons, which lodge and how many time they wear the goats head at meetings.  Callister, Quayle and Moorhouse will also have to declare they are Buffalos. Hooper and Baker will also have to declare they are midgets.

Like there's money to fund CS/PS additional pensions & early retirement, but no money to invest in social care & 'green' jobs?

What a ******* joke

Jees, if we're going to fill the forum with repetitions of facts then what is the point of a forum.

I still think Banker needs to get out in the sun though. He's lost now the pandemic is 'over'. Just hovering about the forum aimlessly reporting on facts.

Think you need to get out more constantly commenting on my comments, you’re like a stalker!!

well it's good to share info to form debate rather than just opinion?
