Boot & Harmer have issued a joint declaration that they intend to stand again in September in a newsletter delivered by the post office this morning 24.05.21

They tell us it will be the last newsletter before the general election

That actually sounds a rather foolish thing to do as that would probably mean the entire cost of the newsletter (including postage) should be classed as an election expense.  If it went out paid by the government, even more so.

Yes, but by sharing they immediately halve the cost they individually  have to declare. 2 for the price of one.

Government won’t pay for postage on that. I hope.

Yes he did - he did managed to beat Kevin the Oliphant and someone who withdrew their nomination.  He also came last in Rushen in 2016 by quite a long way - though I seem to remember he was living in Peel then as well.

He did. He was a little unconvincing when I spoke to him but still I voted for him. He ran, may still do, Ken Quines in Port Erin, which explains the decision to stand in Rushen.

Are there any spare* MLCs to try and parachute in to Peel?

 

ETA: I suggest they are all spare.

He will probably fire another petition in at Tynwald Day next year if he doesn't get elected.

 

Could you imagine how long the Tynwald Question Paper will be in October if he gets elected?

I hope the Sunnyside Gallery guy stands.

There's already one standing in Glenfaba & Peel: Kate Lord-Brennan MLC.

Well that would be a hoot!
