What does he do with the money from all the bits of tat he sells on Facebook? He can’t be skint.  Does he help a charity? 
 

I wondered the same, perhaps he is helping elderly family or friends get rid of stuff accumulated over the years.

Looking at it I would imagine he has a garage, attic, storerooms, or bedroom full of stock from Moochers. I’ve still got loads of cards for all occasions bought from Moochers.

The king of the Facebook broken biscuits! This weeks installment is particularly revealing. At a time when MLP is pushing for a living wage for all Cretters discloses that he used to pay his Moochers shop manager in sweets! Not that socialist is it?

I saw that column. Priceless. I bet there won’t be howls of faux outrage and invected anger on IOMNP Facebook though. They think he and his daughter are wonderful.

This weeks Cretters Column is all about successful Manxies, and it’s tied into the Newspaper Awards at the Villa Marina last week. Not so much a homage to Manx success stories, in which he manages to shoe horn his own relatives, but a praising of the Newspapers Awards - he gives a brief run down of the winners. Cringeworthy, he comes across like a total IOMG stooge, that’s when it’s suits him, and then it’s major critic when there is an opportunity for his political family to point score.  
 

Perhaps he should stick to the old Manx memories, old Manx pubs and old Manx tourism reminiscing.

I hope his daughter elected on his coat tails achieves more than he did !

We can't afford another minister of fun !!

Well the proof will be how many people the poverty committee will get out of poverty. If we are still talking about this topic come next year, especially after TT, which is well known for creating employment, even for a couple of weeks, then I’m afraid it will be just another talking shop. Practical and costed ideas are one thing, but if Ashy says no, then it shows that nobody has negotiating skills. I personally think it will come to nothing but back stabbing, bitchiness and recriminations. To many egos and grandstanding, box ticking which will be used as a checklist for manifesto commitments.

Poverty Committee members aren't in CanCom and can but seek to influence those with hands on the wheel - and those with hands on the wheel are only accepting 'ultimate responsibility' for getting things done

We can but hope that Ashford continues to prevent the CM from making things even worse for low earners

Crets last column was given to the topic suicides on the IOM. Every loss of life is sad and treated as so, but unfortunately you aren’t going to end this cycle of unnecessary suffering. You can pump millions to try and alleviate poverty but it won’t be enough, those issues people suffer from will still be there. Government and Manx Care needs better mental health facilities, incidentally they were bad and being eroded when Cret was still an MLC, where was his influence? 
 

On the bright side Crets daughter Sarah Maltby MHK Douglas South is sending all her constituents (2700) a Christmas Card, personally hand delivered by Daddy and helpers. There must be piles upon piles of boxes of Christmas cards left over from Moochers. Enough for 5 years.

If Sarah Maltby had posted those cards instead of hand delivering, it would cost under £1900, money invaluable to the Post Office, and absolutely nothing to an MHK from a middle class background, hardly a dent into her lifestyle, unlike some where every penny counts.

This is worth looking at as the root of many mental health issues. Link to ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) information:

I know that this will be unpopular with the ‘shut up and get on with it’ crowd, but it all ties in with the mental health situation we have on island and also globally.
