Middle


Recommended Posts

Can't see this guy constructively joining in or taking responsibility for government decisions. He'll want to be able to stand aside and criticise. Would love to be proved wrong. Please remind me of this in 5 years.

Hancock must have seen Wrighty's post.

It's because Ashford called him his 'counterpart' the other day. Couldn't live with that comparison any more.

Derek Flint fishing for people to encourage him to stand on Twitter again.

Very needy.

He hilariously fled during a pandemic and has sniped about the island ever since. 

Desperate.

Stu Peters is standing now.   All is good in the world:thumbsup:

Would be  a nice double dip for Del Boy though heading into retirement :w00t:

Can he stand if he doesn't live here?  Or is he proposing to commute or move back

There’s always a cell reserved for him in the custody block that Del built ( badly )

Well some of Manx Care and DHSC don’t live here but they seemed to do the job. I don’t know whether the Aiport and Ports Director lived here, contrary to rumours that she lived off island and commuted. Though I could be wrong. 
 

I would vote for Flint, and Stu Peters. Straight down the Middle!

Think you’ll find it was DoO/Deputy Airport Director Jezza,

Not quite the same as an elected person.

I believe you have to be on the electoral roll on the IOM but you don't have to live in the constituency you stand in

Thanks, a much more accurate assessment.  That is democracy - you have to be a voter to stand.

Candidates should live in the constituency. Robertshaw represents Douglas East and lives in Crosby. Whereas David Christian Douglas Corporation leader I believe (unless otherwise) lives in Union Mills. Some other MHKs don’t live within their constituency that they represent.
