How did MR carry an untrue story that the Medical Director had been fired for giving evidence to Tynwald PAC

I respect your opinions. Everyone can form their own views and opinions based on the facts that they know about. I alluded though to those that were not on the island at the time when borders should / could have been closed.

Some people would have been caught on the wrong side of that decision if they had not been given sufficient time to get back. Again though, another question that will to be answered.

How do you know he didn't? He isn't a dictator and wouldn't it have been COMIN who made the decision.

I have said it before that there was no way the Isle of Man was going to start taking decisions like this (out of step with the rest of Europe). I know she was right, but senior medics were saying this all over the world.......and no one listened. What makes you think Ashford should take the wrap for this.

He is in CoMIN so of course he made decisions

If Comin had shut borders earlier, many 000s more of our residents would have been stranded and subjected to weekly lottery to get entry permits to return. We would also have had more Comis style prisons and who’s to know how many vulnerable residents stranded abroad or in UK could have become ill & died 

About the same amount as would have needed to get back 2 weeks previous and some would not have gone off island 2 weeks before so not stuck in hotel when it did close down and infection in U.K. wasn’t as rife 2 weeks earlier

I doubt it. Couple of his constituents I met were total fanboys and said he'll be the next CM. Only Cannan could be worse

Yes I would say that David Ashford would be one of the favourites to get the position.

Most of the electorate (the majority of MF contributors apart, inexplicably) recognize and appreciate his efforts and the difficulties he has had to overcome to deal with this pandemic.

They don’t tend to make snide remarks about his appearance and pronunciation but judge him on his actions.

(Cue for some idiot to bring up him shredding correspondence which has been done to death)

That's probably because that's the only action of his that anyone can remember.  And possibly the only one he's taken off his own bat.

Congratulations for being that idiot 

There may be many of us on here who are deserving of that epithet, but not RM. 

The letter shredding incident showed up several flaws in the honourable member for Douglas North.  

2020 was a year when absolute trust in the truth and integrity of each word uttered by those imposing restrictions on everyday freedoms was vital.  He blew that trust to the four winds when he first waved the letter at a briefing and then shredded it under cover of that wonderful veil, GDPR.

Sadly, without a party political system that will give real scrutiny and accountability, these examples will persist. Granny-farming and parochial popularity contests will continue to deliver ineffective  politicians and the continued debacles that we are so familiar with.

Totally correct. One of the principal fault lines running deeply through Manx politics (and ‘democracy’) summed up neatly Glad.

And we don't even know for certainty that he even made that decision without advice do we?

He only gets one vote

Are you that delusional though that you think he votes by his own, conscious mind every time?

This past CoMin has been under the absolute THUMB of Howard, we have seen how agitated, obtrusive and just sheer angry when somebody says something that puts him under the slightest of scrutiny or questions his integrity.

The old boys club KNOW that if they vote against what Howard wants or is pushing for they'll be in the doghouse.

Open your eyes and look at how, time and time again, Government is under scrutiny for the way they operate and supress people that just don't agree with the narrative from the top brass.
