No surprise at ministerial vow

A Rushen MHK says he's not surprised the Manx government's ministers are toeing the CoMin line and saying they all back the Chief Minister's reforms.

Juan Watterson asked all nine ministers individual Tynwald written questions about whether they unequivocally supported Tony Brown and his government restructuring.

It's widely believed three ministers drafted resignation letters over the moves, prior to last week's cabinet reshuffle announcement.

Mr Watterson says that's why he wanted to ask the questions, to gauge feeling now.
