Examiner’s petition against the Toilet Tax



Have your say

In this week’s Isle of Man Examiner, we ask our readers to join the fight against the hated Toilet Tax.

The paper is organising a petition asking politicians to make it reflect the ability to pay, rather than the simple flat rate it is now.

We know it is being reviewed, but a petition from our readers - the island’s voters - should help to concentrate the minds of those in the Wedding Cake and ensure that if we have to have an extra charge it’s fairer.

The petition is paper-only because it’s more credible than an online one, where people might be able to abuse the systems and ‘vote’ more than once.

If people care enough to cut the petition out of the paper and then post it to us (as they have on other occasions) that will show how strongly they really feel.

The Examiner is in the shops now.

It includes a report on the potential sale of old Port Soderick hotel.

There’s the latest from the Commonwealth Games.

One of our reporters has asked Victim Support for its view about potential changes to the way children give evidence in certain cases.

The paper reveals more about more stringent fire regulations in the Grandstand pit in time for the Manx Grand Prix after the incidents at the TT.

There’s a chance to win a special £700 chair and the launch of our gardens competition.

With unrivalled business coverage, our fantastic sports pullout, our lively letters pages (which remain the best place for debate about public life in the island) and Terry Cringle’s nostalgia pages, reading the Examiner is still the best way to learn more about what’s going on in our island.
