UK election impact on Island assessed

Days before voters in the UK go the polls, party fortunes continue to be followed closely by Manx political leaders and senior government officials.

Campaigning for Thursday's general election has twice been disrupted by terror attacks - in Mancheter and London - the atrocities eclipsing party political differences.

The Isle of Man government is officially neutral on the outcome of a UK election, and aims to forge close ties with counterparts in Westminster and Whitehall, whoever is in Number 10.

However, behind the scenes, there's scrutiny of manifesto pladges and policy statements which could affect that relationship, or have a wider impact on the Crow Dependencies.

Minister for Policy and Reform Chris Thomas says the priorities of the next UK government will inevitably play out here.
