Nominal, as CM is exiting stage in a few months

Mr Skelly is home and dry now  until the next election for President , 5 years from now, nice job traveling the world CPA presiding officers meetings  and conferences , no doubt he will renew  his relationship with the world Manx society , and if he licks enough boots a Gong will be coming his way as an added bonus ,  for all he has done for us on our behalf !and at our great expense ,

I'd put moorhouse top 5 in my all time favourite manx politicians even before this. I'd say top 4 now. 

If anyone had asked me in advance, which of the members would cock up their vote, I would, without a shadow of a doubt, said Jason Moorhouse.

This is probably the first time he's never disappointed me.

Hopefully with the Island’s commitment to CO2 reductions, he will lead by example and reduce travel and do those meetings by Zoom.

Skelly's going to look like a right plonker in the fancy dress; like a character out of Gilbert and Sullivan. At least Rodan had the size and figure to carry it off.

Except to be fair, he didn't really.

He wears a kilt like it was a skirt, and with his hat at a jaunty angle too, he reminded me a wee bit of a pantomime dame.

It would be good if somebody could list the successes for the Island that he has brought during his terms?

Does Skelly still have to secure a seat in the September election to retain his presidency fancy dress outfits? Asking for a friend.

Does Skelly get a vote like the Bishop?  The Bishop getting a vote in constitutional issues is a complete farce and un democratic

Yes, and a casting vote

FFS. So 2 unelected get votes to influence the elected, on top of the MLC unelected.  
I think a new thread is needed.  That is beyond a farce 

how many not elected votes are there all together

I was surprised by the number of MLCs when looking at the voting yesterday.

First it looked as if all MLCs had voted JW, then I found one, two, three additional had voted for LS.

[Points to another thread]:

LegCo also get to vote and they currently tend to ignore the CoMin line.  Greenhill is the only reliable CoMin vote plus possibly Henderson (who can be a bit maverick) and the Bishop.

What did surprise me was how few backbench MHKs voted for Watterson (and that Cregeen and Ashford did).  Whether this is because they can't stand him or whether they think he should stop pissing about in wigs and get a proper job in government, I don't know.

They know which side their bread is buttered for sure.

And newbie MHKs know just what to do should they fancy a hefty payrise, a seat at the top table and 'Hon' in front of their name.

Interestingly it was one of those two CoMin members that was slating Skelly off on my doorstep the other day.
