Brexit referendum outcome is accepted as a democratic result isn't it?

Hardly a great argument for giving the mob what they want.

(Fuel shortages, labour shortages, economic chaos, looming inflation, trouble in the north of Ireland. It's getting like the 1970s. And some people seriously trying to write off the chaos as transitional - as if it were somehow part of the plan).

Rob Callister is the leader of this style of gesture politics

MHK's are not elected to become delegates or to run back to the constituents every five minutes  looking for a steer , the buck stops with them , thats why we have voted them in ,  there are many burning issues  that  require  urgent attention , and since the OECD agreement on Taxation yesterday, and energy prices going through the roof  they need to make a decision and stop faffing about  trying to play to the audience and media ,

Nevertheless when it came to the #Brexit referendum result the howling mob got what they wanted

Are you an MHK by any chance?

The Isle of Man is extremely fond of cheap foreign labour. With the implementation of Brexit and its affect on the island, isn’t it time that the Manx Government got it act together to encourage, incentivise the remaining unemployed or benefit recipients to enter the workplace. For example, agricultural and fish processing, cleaning and hospitality trades. Sadly some businesses have had it good.

Some of us can do more than one thing at once. Even the men...

I promised the voters I'd keep them up to date with important political issues and have invited comments on who shoud be the next CM. I'm not using antisocial media to tell people what I had for breakfast, and will make my own decision on who to vote for in due course, but it's interesting to hear what people think.

Sorry can't claim that fame , just another poor soul who is sitting around watching Rome burn ,I don't ever remember so many major  challenges facing  the isle of man ,and wondering if I can still afford to live here ,or indeed if we have  the luxury of dragging out  a election for Chief Minister ,while everyone seems to be playing petty politics

What do you think of the Cannan policy platform Stu - are there aspects that appeal to you?

Baffling to me that he has been in office for so long and has so few concrete plans for the future. I'm surprised so many people seem to accept it

He talks posh, that's all people really seem to care about. He wouldn't stand a chance if people used their memory of how his policies screwed over hundreds of households during the lockdowns.

Stu Peters talks 'Posh'???

Ok Stu you are making all the right noises on listening to your electorate, just what we need!

Are you going to act on those desires or are you going to make your own mind up and to hell with popular opinion?

Who are you voting for next week?

The IOM Govt did a good job of handling the pandemic. Nobody had trained for that.
