towChange is in the air following extreme uncertainty in recent months.

After the General Election in September IoM will have new politicians in post, a different Chief Minister and government.

There will be a new Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General. A new Clerk of Tynwald will be in place.

PAG has assessed the considerable challenges that the new administration will have to face and we address them here in this discussion paper.

IoM Politician's Pay

E-mail Print PDF

In September 2021 the remuneration of Tynwald Members will be transferred to a different, simpler pay scale.

It is claimed that overall it will be cost neutral for the tax payer, but we disagree (see Total)

Here we examine the changes by comparing the current remuneration (including expenses) with that proposed:

Current (ÂŁ)

Proposed (ÂŁ)

Chief Minister

88,022 86,954

President

74,620 76,921

Speaker

79,087 76,921

Ministers

74,620 76,921

Treasury Members

70,152 66,888

Statutory Board Chair

70,152 70,232

MHK - Departmental Member

65,685 66,888

MHK - not Departmental Member

52,282 66,888

MLC - Departmental Member

65,685 63,145

MLC - not Departmental Member

52,282 63,145

TOTAL

2,225,673 2,304,447

Note: the current remuneration may have been enhanced by 1% in April 2021, but we have not been able to confirm this.

Single Resident Record

E-mail Print PDF

srrProposals have been put forward for a Single Resident Record for the Isle of Man.

This paper reviews some of the issues arising, for the purposes of informing the consultation and debates about the proposals. In particular, this paper focuses upon the risks and dangers that are associated with a Single Resident Record. That is not because there are no potential advantages or benefits. Rather, it is because advantages and benefits will be put forward by those proposing the database in any event; it is the disadvantages and dangers that run the risk of being overlooked.

webcastWhat’s on tonight?

That’s the question heard in my home as evening approaches. At one time a quick gander in the Radio Times would provide the information for viewing or listening. Nowadays it’s the webpage of that publication that informs us. So we’ve moved with the times? Well apparently not.

This summer our teenage grandson spent two weeks with us. He and his smart phone were inseparable. It was as though the gizmo was a permanent extension of his hand. He seemed to spend hours, eyes glued to the screen.
