Manx Government buys pub

Well, this is an interesting sign of the times. The Manx Government has bought a pub in Douglas (and a proper pub it is too.) The Department of Local Government and the Environment has purchased the Bowling Green Hotel in Derby Road. The DLGE spokesman confirmed government paid £800,000 for the site which he said was a 'strategic land acquisition'. No decision has been made about the future use of the site.
