The Garff debate on sewerage was interesting though on the basis that god knows what they’ve done with six years’ worth of toilet taxes they’ve collected which were allegedly supposed to be paying for this very thing.

 

They used it to pay interest on the MEA loan as designed. Liars and crooks.

Also on the toilet taxes I note the main toilet tax petitioner is back up in court again. I wonder what she’s done this time? http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=63549

I have had information and visits from all the candidates except the two former MHK’s which either shows they cba or are planning a late assault.

I would not vote for either of them. Perhaps they know that.

Other way around for me. Both former MHKs have visited. Had a leaflet from Jamie and bugger all from the other two.

I was looking at the results from last time. Perkins won, by a lot. Like 500 votes. Why was that? Did he run a good campaign? Got loads of mates? What? And after 5 years of mostly being useless (OFT for example) does he still have that kind of support?

The Garff result in 2016 was basically very dubious - I wrote about it at the time.  It wouldn't surprise me if Perkins vote was inflated by mathematical errors.  The election was so badly run and counted that he might even have not been elected.

I knew there had been some ballot box nonsense, but that can't explain such a big result. But then, I can't see anything about the guy that would explain such a result either.

Only one that has not delivered any paper or visited, even by proxy, up to now,  maybe very confident.

Some are leaving it very late to provide details. Is that because they think that that having seen their name most recently, you are more likely to vote for them?

Andrew Smith's manifesto, on thin card (have they run out of paper?) arrived by post today, addressed to "The Household Family".

Infrastructure, which is causing so much angst, and costing so much money, gets barely half a page.

His support of heritage "is well documented", but not here - that's all he finds to say about it, although there is a lot of heritage in Garff and elsewhere on the Island.

Transport does not get a mention, although there is a photo of the upside down bus in Laxey river from 2015 (from before the last election!). There is no caption, only a reference to the 2019 floods.

He comes over better than a couple of his competitors, but only marginally. 

I shall find it very hard to pick more than one candidate to vote for.
