True, not many current mhks would hope to earn more than that in regular life. 

Civil servant equivalent of a heo or higher?

I hoped some of the newer intake would have more shown more moral fortitude.

Why would the back benchers not question this?  They have nothing to lose, they can't be ousted.  That is the point of them, isn't it?

Because they want to be ministers. I believe Rob Callister has stated that he was disappointed not to be made a minster at the last reorganisation.

Most people in Onchan were disappointed that he wasn’t the Messiah either. Topped the poll but basically it seems the support is only on Facebook.

Is an inabilty to ask questions (like: "Why is this sub judice?") a pre-requisite for aspiring ministers?

(Sorry - that's a daft question, isn't it?)

But there were those who said they didn't want a Ministerial post as a cornerstone of their campaign?

This all sort of reads like a third-rate John Grisham novel.  "The Manx Firm" anyone?

(I suppose the only difference is that members of this "Firm" don't get bumped off.  They don't, do they?)

 

Edit:  Or "The Best Club in the World"?]

Well, it isn't really.  It is a basic demonstration of an inquiring mind.

Oh - I think you may have misunderstood.  I meant I was asking a stupid question.  I think it's obvious that they don't want ministers with an enquiring mind.

(a) Some people ask questions because they don't know something but want to find out about it.

(b) Some people don't ask questions when they should because they don't want to appear stupid.

(c) Some people don't ask questions because they are stupid.

(d) Some people don't ask questions because they know they aren't meant to... 

Two of these qualities are essential for success in some jobs.
