Suspended MHK says 'it's work as usual'

Houghton unrepentent after Tynwald expulsion

North Douglas MHK John Houghton says it's business as usual - despite his suspension from Tynwald.

In an extraordinary move yesterday, he was suspended from the court by the President after refusing to apologise as requested.

The court had backed the report of the Standards and Member's Interests Committee which investigated claims that the MHK was guilty of bullying - something he vehemently denies.

Mr Houghton remains totally unrepentent and says he will never apologise for something he's not done and he will carry on working for his constituents.
