    They are so far behind the times they should have gone straight for marriage equality. They are probably still grumbling about being forced to stop beating people with the birch.

    Why are they still not fully incorporated into the UK? It’s about time.

    1. What a parochial little world you live in. You clearly know nothing about the Isle of Man, its history, culture or political leadership.

      With attitudes like yours it’s no wonder the UK is about to break up. It’s about time.

  2. Who gives a poop? CPs are totally wank and outdated.

    I have one and even I think it is toss.

  3. Shame it’s only marriage-lite but at least it’s better than nothing.

    p.s. THAT is the Isle of Man’s flag? Whoever designed that monstrosity needs a slap !

  4. First, the Isle of Man is independent with their own laws and government, they’re doing quite well. Why on earth would they want to even think about being stuck in the UK in the state it’s currently in?!

    Secondly, the flag is symbolic that no matter which way you throw it, it will land on two feet. It represents strength and hope. Might not look nice to some people, but I’ve always loved it.

  5. E.J. Thribb, what parachial little world do you live in? You clearly know nothing about the Isle of Man, its history, culture or political leadership.

    No wonder the UK is about to break up. It’s about time.

  6. ANY step that is pro-GLTBI is a step in the right direction!
