Don’t ask on here - you’ll get a bunch of polarised opinions and eventually people will start abusing each other and moaning about government/civil service. 
 

I suggest you try it for 6 months and make your own mind up.

It’s fairly subjective, moving from London back to IOM is very different from moving back from somewhere like rural Wales.

Low crime rate, great sense of community, rich history and always things to do if you look. That’s what brought me back years ago.

i find that away from say Douglas is where the island comes into its own, the countryside is lovely, there's always places to find and things to do for almost all ages, the only caveat to that is that they are not handed to you on a plate there is a little bit of searching or finding out but once you realise that there's pretty much everything here.

The IOM does have its good points, but it’s ‘leaders’ and it’s politicos are utterly useless, and have let the island down badly. It’s wasted money hand over fist, and is wrapped up in its own pomposity, and dick wavingness instead of quietly getting on with things.

Life is what you make it.

If you choose the right part of the Island you could have David Ashford MBE or Rob Callister as your elected representative. They are true political titans of the modern ages and anyone would be lucky to be their constituent.

Oh yeah, because the UK government are such shining examples...
