You have to give them all a chance otherwise what's the point. It's a fresh start and it's likely that little will be achieved but let's hope they get a few things right. I picked Alf in our poll and I think he was the best choice. I hope Tim Crookall has learnt a bit too since the last time and at least he had the bottle to stand for election again.

The point is that it is we who pay who should be choosing what policies we want government to adopt, & have a say in who chairs the implementation of them in the Keys

It is utterly absurd that at the end of the general election process we are no nearer knowing the policies & programmes of the next government than we were at the start

Having to wait now until the new year for a 'programme for government' just adds insult to injury

Chris Thomas's popularity is on the incline , he will have to produce the goods in his new role or face the wrath of the electorate ,people are seeing through him ,we don't want an Oxford debate every time an issue requires to be progressed , housing is already at crisis point ,and the islands first time buyers ,and all those involved in trying to clamber up the greasy pole of property purchase and fair rental urgently require a solution ,

If housing is in crisis why isn't fixing it a key policy of Cannan CoMin with one of the most senior members of the Council taking on the job, the CM himself perhaps?

Same might be said of the other major crisis of climate, the response to which is also to hand that to another member that didn't vote for Cannan 

Is it just avoiding responsibility and seeking to politically damage potential opponents?

whatever you think ,they were elected to form the government  and have  RESPONSIBILITY for the good governance and well being of the Isle of man , lets give them a chance !,

if the governance of the isle of `man depends on 'chance' then we m might as well scrap all the elections along with the hope and spin that goes with them.

A nations people should be able to elect people on their plans to govern, not wait until they decide what to do when they get into office. That is democracy.

Looks like one of the new CoMin policies is to put the squeeze on low to middle income earners to save Manx Gas

Not much policy change from the last Council really is it?

But they're all "really uncomfortable" with having to vote.

Daren't print what I'm thinking. 😠

Yes the Bish and the new guy for Douglas North voted against.   An amendment was proposed to delay for a week, but was not carried.   Some good points were made but most stated the obvious,  worried about constituents etc.   There is a cunning plan to help the vulnerable,those on the dole , sick , those in receipt of benefits etc.  Oil has increased a lot since the last delivery but as all the council houses are on gas now and as we know the poorest of our society live in them gas is key.   I think the electric will probably be next.   Let us hope for a mild winter.

I'm not so sure that is the case.
