In part I agree, once CM appoints his COMIN and memberlings it can be said that Government is up and running. I think it’s crackers that 48+ since AC coronation we haven’t had any indication of who is running the statutory bodies, committees, members and COMIN. Maybe AC is having difficulty filling his posts? Surely the positions will be filled by next Tuesday with enough time to prepare for Tynpotwald next Week. Rob Callister always makes a song and dance of going through the order sheet and preparation. 

Until Ministers are appointed, Harmer, Boot, Baker and Cregeeeeeen are still in post.  Still working their bollocks off for you.   Still Ministers as of tonight, and probably tomorrow as well.

He is better taking his time and getting the right people in the right job, bearing in mind he can only work with what he has got.   In private enterprise the Managing Director would know the board members had experience and skills to their name or they would not be on the board.   Tynwald members are more rag,tag and bobtail with a lot of them voted in because they were best of bunch and not for any personal attributes.

You are either Mr Harmer, Boot, Baker or Cregie and I claim my £5

I thought they stayed ministers until a new minister was appointed by the Governor. Obviously, they're lame ducks but they stay in place. Didn't John Rimington get flack for a controversial planning decision made between losing his seat and a new minister be named.

 

 

(I tried to search back using his name, but it's mostly previous incarnations of Barlow wittering on about how he got the role because he'd been a landscape gardener once.)

No they aren’t Ministers. Their posts were dissolved with the last house ending. They have no Ministerial remit any of them. 

I think you are incorrect ,they are still ministers until they  are replaced  ,and that doesn't happen until  the new boys are given their warrant and authority  form the Lt Governor  ,wait for the line up next week and the picture of the new boys holding their certificates !

No I’m not incorrect at all.

Yes you are.  The current Ministers remain in position until replaced.  If one of them resigns another has to take over the post temporarily (so Quayle has been DfE Minister since July when Skelly became President).  They even get mentioned in press releases as the Minister.   Cannan will currently be both Chief Minister (having been formally appointed by the Governor) and Treasury Minister.

New boys? New boys??? Let's hope this time around it's new boys and girls, rather than just a new old boys club.

Although I would prefer new men and women. Semantics I know, but I get fed up with grown women constantly being referred to as girls, much more often than men are referred to as boys. It's one of my pet peeves.

Roger (as always) is correct as I understand it. As an example, Manx Radio had Allinson on this morning in his present capacity as Minister for DESC, advising that he supported Ballakermeen regarding pupils staying at home because of staff illness.
