Nationalists: why wait for Mexit?

Mark Kermode

Independence acheivable with political will

Manx nationalist party Mec Vannin says the Isle of Man shouldn’t wait to find out more about Brexit to consider full independence from the UK.

Last week, Infrastructure Minister Phil Gawne said the time could be right to start negotiating our own “Mexit” in the wake the EU vote.

Mark Kermode, chairman of Mec Vannin, says he considers Mr Gawne’s statement to be simple electioneering.

But does he think independence is now more achievable given the Leave result and Scotland now mulling a new referendum about quitting the UK?
