Have we actually ever figured out why you hate me? 

I don't hate you. I just don't trust you. 

Running a campaign to prevent an all-Island speed limit as a springboard for a political career was pretty immoral though.

That was never meant as a springboard. That was - and still is - my stance on the matter.

David Christian being removed as Council Leader is the most positive development for Douglas in 25 years.

What’s his retirement gift? The Chewing Gum Removal Machine?

Please don't let him be standing for MHK.....

That is the only possible reason I can think of that he’s not standing in the locals. Gawd help us.

You can do both of course.  Get elected to an LA and then stand for the Keys straight away.  That's what Rob Callister did last time.  Presumably you can claim that when you were out canvassing so many people begged you to moved to national politics, that you feel obliged to.  Well at least that's how politicians interpret the words "Piss off!".

If Christian does stand, I would have assumed that he would have stood in Douglas South as that is the same as the Hills Ward he represented on the Council.  But I notice that he now gives his address as 50 Bray Hill, which is just in Central, so maybe he's thinking of standing there or in North.

I was going to wait, but yes I am also standing for election in the Douglas South local elections.

My main focus for Douglas, will be on legalising weed, prostitution, opium dens, casinos and poker bars. People's right to carry firearms, gun shops, pay day loan establishments, horse drawn cocktails and pawn shops.

Oh yeah and 'save the trees' and all that.

Oh well, next time.

If he has tried before and failed to get in what makes you or anyone think he will get in this time? Ashie was a serial candidate for the Keys until he was elected in 2016. 
 

What are his achievements?

What the fcuk is a Community Organiser? The occupation of Devon Watson

What the fcuk is a Social Activist? The occupation of Samuel Harmer

Are these guys for real? Council Politics is being equated to Liverpool City Council style occupation, woke warriors, akin to Militant. Left Wing nonsense by a Manx Labour Party. Immature if you ask me. Need grown ups not Socialist Worker wannabes.
 

Next Citizen Smith will be standing ………. Power to the People!
