Chief Minister says overseas interest can benefit economy

There are 'unprecedented levels of interest' from people wanting to move to the Isle of Man, according to the chief minister. 

Howard Quayle made the comments at a public question and answer session on the coronavirus pandemic.

He says the Department for Enterprise has had a huge number of enquiries on Manx residency.

Mr Quayle added it may be the answer to reviving the Manx economy:

I had I steinway flown over only last week

No - it 'needs' younger taxpayers - not people extending the waiting lists at the hospital.

The Department of Enterprise are well known for making boast of this nature but hard evidence of this boast is something the Minister of that Department rarely produces.

Didn't we have great interest in a number of banks opening in our well regulated jurisdiction?

Well hopefully these people are already self employed or business owners as there aren’t any jobs for them with several thousand Manx people already on benefits and bail out support.

It can only be to get rid of work permits again.

They’ll probably propose scrapping Manx people at some stage never mind work permits. They won’t want to be funding and dealing with all the skint unemployed ones who are now out there if there’s some new shiney people coming over with money who don’t yet think they’re idiots.

To be fair there seem to have been a fair few people coming over in the past because they thought that the DfE (or whatever it was called that year) were idiots.  There are a lot of magic bean salesmen in the world.

In practice the most likely ones to demanding a nice, quiet, safe, isolated life are going to be yet more semi-wealthy retirees, coming to make the population even older and demanding ever more from public services.

Although I don't believe a word of this has anyone else noticed a marked rise in the amount non manx reg vehicles floating about? I also saw a German reg car at the petrol station earlier.

If memory serves there was a department in government who’s sole job was to look for rich people in the uk and try to convince them to move to the isle of man

Clearly a mistake, as the most effective thing seems to be biological warfare. ^_^

(Actually ever since Bell introduced the tax cuts for the very rich HNWIs, the number of such people living on the Island has fallen.  But as with every other failed scheme no one will ever admit it was a mistake).
