Better Government

Soem difficult decisions need to be made if the SAVE programme is to be meaningful many of which require politicians to step up to the plate and do what is best for the Island now and for future generations and not simply look after themselves. 

The IOM is over governed - 33 politicuans for a populaytion of 83,0000 is top heavy. Half the number of MHKs and MLCs to save wages and pensions going forward, to improve accountability and improve decision making.  

The Island has largely propsered in spite of politicians not because of them. For too many years Keys has been a talking shop and no action with few tangible results. Attract bette calibre people to be politicians who are prepared to take risks and use our unique geographical and legislative position to benefit the social and economic prosperity of the Island. However, they should not have to tolerate abusive comments on social media etc and offenders should be dealt with robustly where defamation of character exceeds free speech.
