The people behind the news ManxLeaks website have emailed the Manx Independent more details of the organisation.
This week’s paper has more details.
Also this week:
On page 1, there’s a great picture of Guy Martin having a ‘moment’ on the Southern 100 course
Also on page 1, a backbencher slams the government over the creation of a new £97,000 job. The government replies.
We meet a deaf man who was refused entry to a cab with his dog, which is trained to help him in the same way a guide dog helps the blind.
We talk to an MHK about his concerns about strong alcohol and its effects on society. He wants to set up a Tynwald inquiry.
The Manx Independent reveals that regulations to allow the government to charge fares for school buses again are on Tynwald’s agenda, even though the measure is merely a proposal at the moment.
The paper also highlights the number of applications the island’s immigration service dealt with last year. It’s more than 800.
We also talk to a campaigner who’s angry that road tax costs more in the island than in the UK.
One of our reporters was in court when a woman, who’d spat at a police officer, was jailed.
The troubled diesel engine that was bought by the steam railway for £400,000 is now ‘serviceable’, the island’s transport boss tells us.
The paper also includes a number of photos of the fashions of Tynwald Day and the Governor’s garden party and lots of children’s sports days.
With unrivalled sports coverage, a look forward to Peel’s secret gardens, a look at Cronk y Voddy sports day, our seven-day television guide and the island’s What’s On guide, the Manx Independent is a great read this week.
It’s in the shops now.
