Take Pride in the Isle of Man

Get people to take pride in the IOM. Too many slum-looking houses and their front gardens. Tourists wont come back and ever more people are leaving if the place looks run down (That disgusting building on the corner of Circular Road/Drinkwater Street! Buses from the airport drive past there people will work in that beautiful new office building right opposite have complained to the Council ages ago!)

    It's not just tourists Sam - it's business people considering the IOM versus elsewhere. If they are just tax driven then it probably doesn't matter but if they are looking to establish a business that needs to attract skilled staff then it does. And in that case the income side of the equation is hit.

    Nah go visit Malta, roads proper bad, buildings on main front areas not painted for 50 years.

    It's rammed both business and tourists, proper rammed.
