Politics can be a 'toxic environment' - Karran 

But praise for achievements of last three decades.

An MHK who will stand down in September after more than 30 years admits politics can be a toxic environment.

Peter Karran, who was first elected to the House of Keys at a by-election in Middle in 1985 before being successful in six consecutive elections in Onchan, will not seek re-election at the end of this term.

He says his decision is not a sudden one and hopes he's retained his core values and honesty in what he says is not always an honest profession.

Long considered the outspoken critic of Manx government, Mr Karran still believes there is much to be positive about.
