Manx Class and Guest
We held our class to learn how to order a drink in the pub -- in the McCarthy's attic bar in Alexandria where we hold our twice-monthly classes. Please note all the authentic props!
We were delighted to welcome Alex Downie who was very interesting and told us all about how the Manx Government is based on a tri-cameral system and talked us through some recent developments such as the Super Yacht and Airplane registries, the growth of e-gaming and our space industry.
Update: Alex was waiting for news on the vote and heard this morning that he was re-elected to the MLC.
