  1. https://www.gov.im/news/2020/jul/08/vat-reduction-on-food-and-attractions-to-stimulate-business/ In order to stimulate business in the hospitality sector, the Isle of Man’s VAT rate on food and attractions will be reduced to 5% from Wednesday 15 July to Tuesday 12 January. Further details on what the VAT reduction will apply to will be issued shortly. This is in line with the Customs and Excise agreement with the UK, and follows announcements made today by UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak MP. A 5% VAT rate already applies to accommodation in the Isle of Man.

  5. If there was a 1m or 2m restriction I could envisage some people having an issue with the return to school, however with social distancing down to zero the capacity issues are negated - as are the issues around primary kids playing perhaps the desc will grant parents who choose to keep kids off until September with leniency. i dont know. but its going to be very difficult now (for teachers, parents or indeed the desc) to make a coherent argument to keep schools closed
  6. it would be helpful if the nature of the alleged offences was stated, or whether or not it directly relates to the deaths
  7. keep them in case of a 2nd wave :-)
