I’m sure Bernard Moffatt wouldn’t mind me saying that he’s seen many iterations of government and Tynwald come and go. He’s still a regular contributor to political debate on social media and continues as Assistant General Secretary of the Celtic League. With the Cannan administration about to embark on some fairly radical changes Bernard gives his seasoned view on population growth, the political interface with the civil service, social media’s influence on political debate, and much more. While he styles himself as the cuddly old grandad of Manx politics watch out for his false teeth - they can still inflict a nasty bite.
