As well as Chris Thomas heading a Housing Board, Dafneeee Caine is heading up a Climate Change Board. 
 

Are these bodies operating at arms length? Are they devising policy? 
 

Or like I said before is it a sop to keep people quiet and keep them onboard, to prevent both the HOK and Tynpotwald from being bombarded by pointless questions?

I wasn't talking about Ashford in particular as personally I don't even understand how he got elected never mind into COMIN.  I was meaning in general.  Should we be assuming that someone who hasn't been to uni is no good when they might well have just not ever had that opportunity.

I had to get out and earn as soon as GCSE's were done, no option at all as Mum and Dad needed me earning.  Shouldn't mean people can judge if I would be good in a position or not (not that I would put myself in their position anyway.)

Ashford at Treasury and Allinson at Enterprise really doesn't bode well for a period of growth and success.  I really hope they both prove me wrong.  At least they have had the balls to put themselves in the firing line.

I have just worked out who you are, or more accurately narrowed it down to one of 4 people. 

Go on then, which one are you? 🙂

Oh they'll be questions - Moorhouse is still at large!

I'm guessing it's stuff Cannan doesn't really want to do but realises the public see it as essential

So he is keeping them at arms length & will leave it to the Boy David to tell them what they want is unaffordable

Was there ever a formal Deputy CM under Quayle?  Cannan I suppose, but Quayle was always very keen to announce he was in charge - even when he was ill.

Of course the most interesting new appointment will be the CoMin Member we never talk about - the Attorney General.  Quinn is already past retirement age and had his contract lengthened.  Given the way that Poole-Wilson's attempts for even modest legal reform were stymied, I can see her wanting to bring in an outsider to shake things up.

In fact, Quinn was extended to the end of this year by which time he will be well over 65. It is now mid-October and not a single word in public about a replacement (unlikely since a role like this needs to be advertised perhaps 6 months in advance) or yet another extension. Nice work if you can get it.

They (CoMin) are meant to be reviewing the role of the Attorney General and will be reporting to Tynwald in December 2022. This is what tynwald agreed to happen:

That the Constitutional and Legal Affairs and Justice Committee’s Third Report for the Session 2020-21: Role of the Attorney General [PP No 2021/0107] be received and the following recommendations be approved: 

Recommendation 1

That the recommendation made by Stephen Wooler to redefine the relationship between the Attorney General and the Director of Prosecutions as one of superintendence, with prosecutions being brought in the name of latter, be formally implemented without further delay.

Recommendation 2 That the legal advisor to the executive be entirely separate from the legal advisor to Tynwald and its Branches.

Recommendation 3 That the Council of Ministers establish an independent review in order to identify effective solutions to address the issues raised in this report; and that it report back to Tynwald by December 2022.

I;ve no reason to know that Ashford willl be a puppet for Cannan in the treasury but it certainly seems that way!

Still, we can always wait to find out as things unwind. At least our NI contributions are capped by following the English levels, Doh! Forgot about Sunak!!!!
