Kermode praises Dhone's allegiances

A prominent nationalist has called on Manx people to remember the spirit of Illiam Dhone - but not to get wound up in conjecture.

Mec Vannin chairman Mark Kermode was speaking at the annual commemoration service at Hango Hill on Monday.

Also there was Policy and Reform Minister Chris Thomas, who suggested the political rebel Dhone - who was executed in 1663 - would have 'approved' of Tynwald's new Programme for Government.

But Mr Kermode believes it's more about remembering the past.
