Granted Dafneeee did. She has done nothing else of value or note.

She was also concerned with Goats, whilst Jason Monkhouse - the next host of the Golden Shot (being sponsored by a Manx Construction company)- loved to talk about seagulls.

After she wrote a scathing Children's Champions report she was frozen out by the Chief Minister. Despite this she still managed to get her private member's bill through. Had she chosen to toe the Government line and vote with them like Tim Baker did on absolutely everything then maybe she could have risen further.

I feel it is better to have someone who stands by their principles than one who drops them for a whiff of power.

Don't forget most of the current ministers were backbencher prior to the last election.

The seagull thing is a serious point, although it probably went over the head of Jason.

For the past 50 years or so seagulls have been moving inland from their natural habitat of cliffs and sea. Look at old photos of the herring processing along breakwaters of Peel, Port St Mary etc and not a seagull in sight. These days walk down the prom with your ice cream and there is suddenly a flock of them looking for their next feed.

Struck me as slightly disturbing and best ignored tbh.  Seemed more like an 11pm drink fuelled rambling than an 11am post

Ignore it? Like you have?

I suppose it is all about point of view and perspective.

Anyway, no one has been hurt offended or killed in the writing of the post. No babies were harmed.

ETA

But votes were gained
