Why is it not called 'Douglas West'?

It was when they redrew the boundaries because they realised that some of Douglas Central was actually to the south of it.  But Bill Malarkey (in the only bit of legislative work in his career) put a special Bill through Tynwald to rename it to Douglas South.  Because that's what it had always been called.  

You've got to prioritise the really important things.

Yes they will, on the basis that they’ve not had enough time to either piss people off or reveal themselves to be talentless chancers. (I’m not saying they are, just that if so, it’s too early to be sure).

Or maybe because they are both actually quite good.

I have been impressed by Quine. Hope he gets back in. Not sure about the other one.

From my perspective Christian has done more for people and addressed some key national issues, particularly around mental health - but I concede that Quine has been an excellent constituency MHK as well.

I am not aware she has done anything for mental health except profess an interest - as we all do of course.

It’s clear we need a mental health party with a good manifesto. Time for the Monster Raving Looney Party to put up someone in every constituancy with a totally mental program of government. They would win by a mile. No need for ideas just make it up as we go along. Make Ketamine legal but only for horses. Banish all civil servants to Paraguay. Make beekeeping legal. One extra sock for all.

She and Paul Quine will likely get back in based on those standing so far.

 Paul Quine -- yes, hope so. He has the makings of a very good parliamentarian, just the sort we need. Challenges and not afraid to rock boats. Looks comfortable in the role as MHK. No pretentiousness. 

Ms. Christian--No thanks. Not done anything substantial for mental health as alleged previously as far as I know. Everything Mr Quine is not I'm afraid (see above).

What has Paul Quine done for mental health?
