Speech on the Public Accounts Committee Report on IRIS 1991 to 2007, as given in Tynwald on 16 November 2010.

Thank you Mr President - A PAC report of this nature covering the first 16 years of such a significant and costly capital project presented an extremely important opportunity to produce a fearless, comprehensive and honest document which could inform, advise and guide those who come after us for the good of the Isle of Man, the taxpayer, the whole capital contract commissioning process, our Government and Parliament and indeed the standing of the Public Accounts Committee itself.

This has been an opportunity completely missed.

 

Happy with the IoM Dental service?

The government close their consultation on an 'Oral Health Strategy for the Isle of Man' in a few days (November 8th).

It is vitally important that we make our feelings know on what this writer considers to be one of the most neglected and appalling services provided by Government.

Election of Chief Minister Bill thrown out

E-mail Print PDF

The Clauses Stage of this Bill, which would enable the public to elect a Chief Minister at the next General election in September 2011, didn't survive the first Clause at the House of Keys 26.10.10. Only 8 MHKs voted for it, with 13 against. This is a bitter blow for the development of Manx democracy and will mean that voters will not be able to choose who will determine government policy in the 5 years 2011 to 2016. Once again voters will be confined to voting only for their constituency politicians rather than having a say, however indirect, in national policies.

Voting was as follows:

For (8) Against (13)
Karran 
Malarkey 
Robertshaw 
Cannell 
Shimmin 
Cretney 
Gawne 
The Speaker (Rodan)  
Quirk 
Earnshaw
Brown
Crookall
Anderson
Craine
Quayle
Cregeen
Houghton
Henderson 
Corkish 
Watterson
Gill
