Paul Craine

Candidate for Middle, Isle of Man House of Keys election 2016

Eight weeks to go until the election on 22 September. I have just returned from 48 hours on Iona (with a trip to Staffa on a small boat). A break from canvassing – the perfect opportunity to reflect on the election, values and priorities.
Thought a great deal about the speech by the UK Prime Minister in front of Number 10… her mission to make “a country that works for everyone”.
The idea that the Isle of Man, including its government and its economy, has to “work” for everyone – sounds just about right to me. But that is not the current reality. It seems to work much better for some people than for most of us.
It is about getting things in balance – and it’s about people.
