It's not every day you have a member of the order of the british empire in our midst. That kind of title is pretty appealing to simple minds.

Reminds me of the Mrs Merton question to Debbie Magee. 

"What was it about British Empire awarded Treasury Minister David Ashford that attracted you?"

Better still, take the young lady he was with on Saturday who was wearing high heels and leopard skin tight leggings. 

Was she a "Lady of The Night"...?

If so, how apt....:ph34r:

She was a lady of the early morning when I saw her. Just before sunrise, funnily enough. 😊

Oooooh.....!!! No wonder he has dark circles under his eyes.

Pale looking..? 

  I couldn’t possibly comment further…

…but because I just can’t help myself, and because I’m honest to the core - she wasn’t as pale as he was.   

But then, is anyone?

It was an accusation of misconduct in public office which according to MR is the same wording being used against Ashford. It seems to amount to the same claim though which has previously been used by anti vaxxers in the UK against some UK MPs. Which were thrown out by the police who were asked to investigate.

Suddenly I have an interest in jury duty

It will be thrown out. But if it went to court then definitely it would be one to watch or be on the jury for. Maybe Gef could to the court coverage with numerous humorous cartoons of Heady & Ashy?

No jury here, for this. Misconduct in Public Office isn’t a criminal offence in IoM. It is in England. These proceedings are civil. No police involvement. ( except for Del banging on about how we need it - must have cut an immunity deal when he retired. )

Wondering whether you think a misconduct clause is desirable in Manxland. What's your take, JW..?

Most, if not all, of the things it covers are caught by bribery, fraud, etc offences already.

Lots of people seem to think it covers incompetence and could be used to rein in incompetent or negligent politicians and civil servants. But incompetence and poor decision making aren’t criminal and shouldn’t be made so.

Different methods of holding to account are needed for those.

So what is covered by the criminal courts under misconduct in the UK that isn't covered here?
