Nationalists: why wait for Mexit?

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 of 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 over a new referendum about quitting the EU?

He thinks it's always been achievable, but it requires a political will, and that political will, one hundred percent, is lacking, from the Chief Minister and all the way down and even with Mr Gawne coming out  with pretty much a throwaway call for independence.  Until our politicians learn who they represent and why they represent them, we're not going to get independence.
