SKELLY’S BEEN IMPRESSED BY US ADAPTING

WE’VE SHOWN BUCKETS LOADS OF RESILIENCE

‘STAY SAFE’ IS SAFE GUARDING THE ECONOMY 

GOV HAVE RECEIVED GOOD FEEDBACK ON THE PHASED RETURNS SO FAR

SALARY SUPPORT SCHEME IS HELPING VULNERABLE WHO CAN’T GO BACK TO WORK

THERE’S A DELICATE BALANCE ON THIS STRATEGY

GOV ARE ASSISTING HARDEST HIT SECTORS 

BUSINESS SUPPORT SCHEME £7 MIL PAID OUT

THEY’RE WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK

97% OF APPLICATIONS RECEIVED HAVE BEEN PROCESSED

£1.2 MIL ADDITION FUNDING  APPROVED FOR 23 BUSINESS 

THIS SUPPORT HAS GONE ON PAYING CREDITORS & IS BOOSTING THE ECONOMY

£60K PAID THROUGH BUSINESS ADAPTATION SCHEME

“INNOVATION IS ALIVE AND WELL”

2,600 APPLICATIONS FOR MERA HAVE BEEN PROCESSED

SALARY SUPPORT – £6 MIL PAID OUT

WILL NEED TO REVISIT SUPPORT SCHEMES TO MAKE SURE THEY’RE RIGHT

THIS IS A LONG UNCERTAIN JOURNEY

MOVED INTO STAGE TWO STAY SAFE. NEXT REVIEW THURS

WE NEED TO BRING PEOPLE BACK TO WORK SAFELY

THEY’RE LOOKING AT LONGER PLAN

NEED TO USE INNOVATION AND RESILIENCE TO HELP US UNDERSTAND THIS ‘NEW NORMAL’

CANCELLATION OF THE MANX AND CLASSIC TT WERE DIFFICULT DECISIONS TO MAKE BUT INEVITABLE GIVEN TRAVEL STATUS

“WE WILL CONSULT, WE WILL LISTEN”

DOE PLAYS KEY ROLE IN TALKS REGARDING CULTURE, SOCIETY & THE ECONOMY 

HAPPY WITH THE DECKCHAIR DECISION

2 PEOPLE VISIT ANOTHER AT A PREMISES BUT KEEP 2 METRES APART

IT’S TO HELP WITH MENTAL WELL BEING 

BUT IT’S AN OFFENCE TO GATHER IN THE PARK/ON THE BEACH

WE’RE NOT OUT THE WOODS GUYS!

KEEP WASHING YOUR HANDS, KEEP DISTANCE, STAY AT HOME WHEN YOU CAN

MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS

QUESTIONS

Q) PHASE 4 SHOWS TOURISM RESUMING BUT BORDERS DON’T OPEN UNTIL PHASE 6 – HOW WILL TOURISM BE SUPPORTED IN BETWEEN THESE PHASES?

A) THERE WILL BE AN IMPACT, TRAVEL IS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL, BORDER CLOSURE IS AN ISSUE BUT WE CAN CONTROL TOURISM INSIDE

Q) WILL RONALDSWAY BE REDUNDANT? 

A) THE SKIES ARE OPEN BUT THE SEAS ARE CLOSED 

WHEN WE HAVE A CLEARER PICTURE OF THE INTERNATIONAL STAGE, WE’LL KNOW MORE ABOUT RONALDSWAY

£25 MIL LORD STREET IS A GO! IT SAYS “IOM WILL BE OPEN”

LOCAL COMPANY MAKING IT HAPPEN – WE HOPE IT CAN PROGRESS

IOM IS STILL GOOD PLACE TO INVEST & DEVELOP

PAUL: WHY DON’T THE NUMBERS ADD UP?

SKELLY: I DUNNO? WEBSITE SHOULD BE CORRECT. THAT’S ONE FOR ASHY

VIRTUAL TT? NUMBER OF LOGISTICAL CHALLENGES, WAITING FOR AN UPDATE ON THAT. 

WE WANNA ENTERTAIN SUZUKI STEVE – LETS GET OUT THE REPLAYS. IT’LL BE LIKE DAVE – ALL THE RERUNS!

FOR PEOPLE WITH KIDS WHO CAN’T GO BACK TO WORK – THERE’S SUPPORT FOR YOU.

HOMESCHOOLING AND WORKING – SKELLY RECOGNISES IT’S AN ISSUE

Q) HOW WILL RETAIL PLACES BE SAFE?

A) “CLICK AND PICK UP”

CLAIRE CHRISTIAN OF CLAIRE CHRISTIAN COUTURE WILL BE HELPING WORK THIS ONE OUT

WANT PEOPLE TO BE COMFORTABLE AND CONTENT WITH CONDITIONS IF THEY HAVE TO RETURN TO WORK AT A NON-ESSENTIAL SHOP

SKELLY NOTED THAT BBC ALEX IS NOW BALD

Q) WHEN DO WE RUN OUT OF MONEY?

A) FUNDS FOR UP TO 6 MONTHS, WE’RE COMFORTABLE WITH THIS

RETURNING SECTORS WILL MEAN THERE’S MORE CONTRIBUTION TO THE ECONOMY

ALEX – IS THAT TRUE THO? BECAUSE IT’S PHASED, WILL THAT MEAN THERE’S MORE OF AN IMPACT ON OTHERS?

19 MARCH THAT FATEFUL DAY OF THE FIRST CASE, CLOSED DOWN 75% OF ECONOMY

THANKS TO THOSE WHO’VE CONTINUED TO WORK, AND CONTRIBUTED TO THE ECONOMY

Q) DO YOU THINK TT AND FESTIVAL OF MOTORCYCLING WILL BE VERY DIFFERENT NEXT YEAR?

A) THINGS WILL BE DIFFERENT FOR QUITE SOME TIME

“READ OUR STORY OF WHERE WE’VE BEEN!”

“STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM NOW WE’RE IN STAGE 2”

IT’S BEEN AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY FOR US, NOT SURE HOW REST OF WORLD ELSE WILL DO

TIM HAS INFO ABOUT TT ENTERTAINMENT HE’S KEEPING TO HIMSELF

SKELLY KNOWS THERE’S A LOT OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL 

WE WANT TT AND FESTIVAL OF MOTORCYCLING ‘21 TO COME BACK WITH A BANG!

FOOT AND MOUTH STOPPED US ONE YEAR, BUT WE CAME BACK FIGHTING

TIM: “YOU CAN’T COMPARE THE RONA TO FOOT AND MOUTH?”

SKELLY: “TRUE BUT WHAT I’M SAYING IS TT WAS CANCELLED AND IT STILL CAME BACK”

SCRUTINY IS IMPORTANT, WE LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY 

SMALL PARLIAMENT = WE CAN ADAPT 

MORE DECKCHAIR CHAT – 

FOR YOUR LOVED ONES AND THE ELDERLY REALLY 

BE SENSIBLE 

COLIN’S BARBERS IN RAMMO WANT HELP WITH THEIR RATES. £3K HASN’T TOUCHED THE SIDES 

SKELLY – IT’S UNDER REVIEW

YOU’LL BE ALLOWED TO REOPEN WHEN WE KNOW IT’S SAFE TO DO SO

THOSE BUYING PUNNETS FOR TAKEAWAY SERVICE, USE THE INNOVATION GRANT. THAT’S WHAT IT’S THERE FOR

IF YOU HAVE AN IDEA, FLESH IT OUT ASAP

SKELLY HAD A QUESTION FOR THE PRESS – RATE US ON A SCALE OF 1-10

TIM: “NO COMMENT”

PAUL: “5/10” – BRUTAL

WE’VE ALL BECOME ALL MORE INTERESTED IN POLITICS 

PAUL “CAN I MAKE A PERSONAL PLUG?’

*TRANSMISSION INTERRUPTED*

SKELLY: “IOM 4EVA STAY SAFE” 

*MIC DROP*

One thought on “IOM GOV UPDATE – 5th TUESDAY”
