150 years - celebration of Manx democracy

It's been 150 years since the first popularly elected House of Keys entered office in the Isle of Man - a democratic benchmark being celebrated this month.

Tynwald and University College Isle of Man held a symposium on the weekend (Sat), styled 'House of Keys: Power, Parliament and the People'.

The focus? Social and economic context of events behind Manx reform movements in the 18th and 19th centuries, and legislative and constitutional history.

Guest speakers included Dr Kit Gawne, Dr Robert Fyson, Dr Mike Hoy MBE, Mike J Southend MBE, and William Cain CBE TH.

Another notable name present was Oxford Brookes University Professor Peter Edge, who specialises in Manx law - he explained why it's such a significant milestone.
