I had hoped this morning would be different and a new era for Manx Politics where the electorate were at the forefront ..... I was wrong. Business as usual !

All Cannan has proved that they are more corrupt than the civil servants. All read the riot act at the start, questions not answered, challenges rebuffed. You get the feeling that we are worse than the very worst of the African Republics. This is actually a complete insult to democracy. They are frightened of the ramifications of this. They won’t sacrifice Ashy as it sets a precedent for the rest of them.

Well, yes…but is anyone - ANYONE - actually surprised?

Skelly, as a member of the previous COMIN, has ridden to his former colleagues aid by putting the widest possible interpretation on sub judice 

 

(Grammitical aside - should I have "written colleagues' aid" in the above. I feel I should it should, but the aid belongs to Skelly not Cannon and Ashdown)

"Ms Faragher asks a question about the freedom of the press, asking why senior civil servants leant on at least one media outlet to silence the story but President Laurence Skelly says he won't allow the question."

What we have just listened to is an exchange documenting the worst day for IOM democracy in the last 40 years. Skelly sitting there on £80K a year like a bargain-bucket Bercow basically stopping MHKs fulfilling their jobs and being accountable to the electorate who voted them in. It was like listening to the Russian Duma. As for Ashford he has no credibility left. His psyche and personality is clearly now so monstrous that he thinks he can just stick two fingers up at everyone. Unsurprisingly he’s one of the few goat-shaggers in Keys.

Because it's something one gives like a present?

If you like. But more like a service really. He might have billed them for it for all you know. *

 

*Eta, this is a joke. I'm not suggesting he actually did that.

Unquestionably the lowest and darkest day in Manx politics in recent times.

A proven incapable fantasist not being held to account by a spineless CM and The President silencing those that rightfully question this.

Whilst the sycophants sit back with their heads down dreaming of their next Social Media diatribe of horse shit.

It’s a Banana Republic

INSERT BENT AS FUCK EMOJI

I think the arrangement is more quid pro quo.

I see Ashie in passing a couple of times a week at lunchtime. 

I've always managed to restrain myself, but has anyone got any suggested insults I loudly growl at him now?
