This week's Manx Independent

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.
