I’m surprised with such a glowing all singing and dancing CV, which is miles better than Alf Cannan, why didn’t she contest a seat at the election? It’s worth noting that Alf Cannan went to Sandhurst, so by rights should have leadership qualities, be commanding and be able to reign in the civil service ambitions.

[Kelsey] went to CRHS

Yes her father was Manx and she seems to have spent some time here in the 70s.  She also seems to have settled here 2011-12 rather than 2015 (I was going on employment history) and slotted into the Establishment remarkably quickly.

As I said earlier in the topic, it's not a bad thing to have people with outside experience and fresh eyes, it was just odd so many of them were on the candidates list.

That’s some CV. At first I thought it was an inside job but that woman has skills. 

What on earth is a ‘sandwich’ year? 

Common in practical, technical degree study. It is a year (usually between 2nd and 3rd years of study) with a relevant business to consolidate what you have learned, give it some real-world context and help in decisions about direction after university. Usually considered a "good thing"; at least it was when I did engineering in the 70s...........

Juan merely dresses up and plays. He won’t get his hands dirty. 

Sadly Juan in uniform is just an insult to those who have fought for their country and actually served in HM armed forces  I don't know how he has the neck to attend service related occasions ,dressed up as a commissioned  British officer ,and of significant rank ,

Some of those candidates had an excellent CV and good life experience. They are above comparison with likes of the proverbial postmen who make up the Keys. I suppose they didn't really stand a chance.

If anyone listened to MR on Sunday Shimmins shot himself inthe foot going on about badly formed policies put forward by the last government when there was about 50% of the last government choosing the next LegCo members.  What was he thinking .

Thinking he'd be looked upon favourably by those mhks who'd done the hard yards getting re-elected was another.

Well Shimmins has plenty of time ……. at least till February 2023 till the next Legco Elections. Plenty of time to devote to his family. I wasn’t a fan of Craine but he is an improvement upon Shimmins.

He’s the exact sort of researched based person you need in a revising chamber. 

I would say that description matches Chris Thomas to a tee. Maybe in February 2023, he could take the Legco bait, and he could still sit on committees and come up with ideas.

Sadly he still wouldn't  have achieved much  ,Chris  has really never produced anything of substance , a great talker but never delivers the goods ,what the old Manxies call a Yam Yat 

better watch out a few new kids on the block before the next general election  and Chris could be history ,we have seen this happen so many times ,I never dreamed Ann  Corlett  would  have seen him off in September , but she did ,!

So wonderful, Phil Craine rejected by the public twice gets into Tynwald vis LegCo.    What a disappointment obviously the public’s opinion counts for nothing.   Shame on the MHKs who voted for this man.

Do you really know enough about the man to say this? Why is there shame on MHK's who voted for him? Be interesting to know what esoteria you appear to possess...

Hopefully Phil has a better eye for detail than you do 😂
