Have your say

AN astonishingly bad-tempered football match ended in violence and now the police are involved.

The Isle of Man Examiner today has more on the story on page one.

The main page one story is about Legislative Council and the candidates. The Examiner points out that only one has ever won a political election. It’s also the subject of our editorial comment column.

Inside the paper, we report on a man who is described as a danger to children.

He was quite open about his sexual interests to police and to the courts. He has now been jailed.

There’s a different court story on page 5. We were in court to see Moto-GP star Cal Crutchlow’s appearance. He wasn’t. Full details in the Examiner.

In the aftermath of the tuition fees wrangle, the paper have two stories.

In one we talk to the Isle of Man College, which is planning to allow students to start their degree courses there.

In the centre spread, we revisit the campaign and ask students who fought so hard against the introduction of fees about what they have learned about the political process.

Sticking to the education theme, we talk to one father who is angry that the taxpayers’ financial support for music lessons has been hit.

While the economic news has been so-so at best, we hear from one estate agent. He tells us what he thinks will happen with the Manx property market.

Football is on the back page as well as the front. There’s a report on St George’s thrashing of Castletown.

The Examiner is in the shops now.
