Have your say

A MEETING of bus drivers will be held tonight (Monday) to discuss how their industrial action should progress.

Today’s Isle of Man Examiner has the story on the front page.

We reveal that the union members are becoming more militant as time progresses and that one shop steward has resigned after some disagreement within the union.

The other main story on page one is the appearance of the Attorney General in court on Friday last week.

Stephen Harding is to face trial, accused of perjury and perverting the course of justice.

We were in court and have the full story.

After last week’s vote on tuition fees, we reveal how each MHK and MLC voted in Tynwald.

Also in last week’s Tynwald, Geoff Corkish told members what he thought about the ‘ill-informed comments’ made on internet forums yet, bizarrely, he said he didn’t read them, leading to speculation about how well informed his own comments were in Tynwald. We hope he reads the Examiner. We have helpfully included a number of the comments readers on iomtoday.co.im had about him.

Inside the paper, we look at green ways. A new group is calling for action to stop vehicles damaging them.

After the Southern Area Plan was passed last week, we have reaction from local politicians in this week’s paper.

The Budget dominated the news last week. This week’s Examiner has more anaylsis and comment and also includes your free 16-page Business Word supplement.

Keith Gerrard’s success in the Chesham Cup cross-country competition is on the back page along with a report on the DHSOB v Peel match.

The Examiner is in the shops now.
