Both current MHKs said in their manifestos they would bring a bill forward to change the constituency name to be more representative of the area covered, with parts of Onchan having moved in before the 2016 election.

5 years later, it's still Garff. I imagine they'll say the same to Onchan residents again when they go door knocking...

Good thing it didn't get changed wouldn't have got the Gareth for Garff tagline which has sold me

Didn't Gareth Young win X-Idol?

Will Young & Gareth Gates were the big hitters that year I believe

I hope Daphne Caine will stand again. Sadly, I am not in her constituency, but if I was, I would vote for her. My main reason is that I believe that a country of 85,000 people should be entitled to elect its own CM. This would be a rare act of direct democracy. I realise this little miracle is not going to happen in the 2021 GE, but Daphne has at least made some positive inroads toward making this more likely in the future, and also that we can have a plan to allow a simple majority of MHKs to remove a sitting CM. All of this would be welcome progress IMHO.

She’s done more to challenge the CM and COMIN (under the radar) than many of the others. I voted for her but I wasn’t entirely sure how it would go. That she was supported by Dudley Butt was a good indicator for me. He’s an excellent judge of character and is choosy about who he supports publicly. I shall be voting for her again and look forward to seeing how she progresses through government.
