Have your say

MHKs are trying to avoid a £4,000 cut in their basic pay.

It’s an unintended consequence of a money-saving policy to appoint new government staff on revised terms and conditions.

This week’s Isle of Man Examiner has the full story on page one.

We’ve reports on all the latest TT action - while reporter Nikki Allan took to the streets to ask local people whether they look forward to the excitement of the festival - or can’t wait until normal life resumes.

And there’s a warning from police about staying safe on the roads. This comes after one motorist drove up the Mountain Road against the flow of the one-way traffic and an incident in which a motorcyclist did 135mph in a 60mph limit.

Inside, we report how Ashley Hill school reopens today after last week’s two hoax bomb threats.

We’ve a picture spread on the swearing-in of the new Lieutenant Governor Sir Richard Gozney.

Onchan commisioners reckon they should be shown more respect after we reported how one had previously been sacked from his job for an incident involving a knife.

There’s more fall-out over the cancellation of the Queenie festival.

And one of our MHKs seems to have gone AWOL.

The Examiner is in the shops now.
