Harmer promises Manx voice in future Brexit talks

Recommended Posts

It’s reassuring to have such a respected political figure as Ray Harmer speaking so authoritatively about the challenges facing the incoming UK Prime Minister. I’m sure Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt, Dominic Raaaaaaaab et al will be most grateful for that enlightenment.

Hopefully there won't be any future Brexit talks. We voted to leave, not to talk about leaving.

I'm struggling to see the relevance of the picture of Howard Quayle. Is it just there for us to admire?

ETA: Or are we sending him to talk to Barnier?

ETA2: It looks like his head is plugged into the mains.

Yes, we, the majority of the people who voted in the referendum.

I think he means that "we", that is the Isle of Man, didn't vote, not being in the EU to start with.

It's a very Manx thing isn't it? It's like many Manx people refer to the England football team as "we". (e.g. WE won the world cup. WE were shit etc.)

But you could not and did not, unless you are lying in everything you say about yourself

I don’t think Manx say that tbh, but people living here might.

Mr Quayle - I'm most surprised you are unaware - is our man in the #Brexit negotiations

Spends the bulk of his time concentrated on high level negotiations

& has given an undertaking to stand down when the matter is concluded

Really? What was the majority among the people residing in the Isle of Man who voted to leave the EU?
