Government as a Single Legal Entity:
The Plans behind the Plan
by Tristram Llewellyn Jones
The Council of Ministers commissioned consultant Sir John Elvidge to report on creating the Isle of Man Government as a Single Legal Entity. It will be come before *November Tynwald for endorsement.
On the face of it the proposal seems sensible, but digging deeper some commentators see unintended consequences, believing it to fundamentally alter the relationship that the IOM citizen has with the State.
Civil rights campaigner Tristram Llewellyn Jones is one such person. He gave a presentation to an open meeting of the Liberal Vannin Party 12.11.12. and we publish the main points of his talk here.
[PAG is grateful to Liberal Vannin Party & Mr Llewellyn Jones for allowing us publish this here.]
* "That Tynwald endorses the report into Government as a Single Legal Entity by Sir John Elvidge and requests the Council of Ministers to report to Tynwald, by no later than June 2015, with recommendations on the means of implementing the proposals contained in the report."
