Invest in Infrastructure

Invest in our infrastructure - especially our Heritage - support the development of heritage engineering - keep restoration work and skills on Island.  Empower entrepreneurs to open up apprenticeships.  Don't allow desctruction of our brilliant past - vis inside Douglas Railway Station.  Don't plan a nasty glass box for Ramsey's Interchange!!  Visitors come for past era experience.

Why the contribution is important

Our great USP is our landscape and our heritage.  People come for both.  We need to diversify our tourism appeal.  Niche markets are "our thing".  Grow our own experts and become world leaders in restoration,  We have all the expertise we need if only we had people with vision making decisions.

    Now would be the time to take out a 250 million loan to build affordable and social housing.
    Rates quoted Friday 1.9%.
    The bond system could be reintroduced so manx people can have fixed rates of income.
    Use sinking funds.
    Three different builds occured in late 40s early 50s for a 60 year period, the sinking fund on all three were paid up in the 1991 and 1993.
    The 70% now is profit.
    The bond system was very easy and simple to use.
    It also allows a person with £500 to obtain the same rate as a 100k.
    Local people would pay income tax on the intrest, where at present I doubt if the banks will be paying tax on our borrowings
