48% of people want more independence from the UK

Mon, 08 Aug 2011

An opinion poll has found half of the people surveyed think the Island should have more independence from the UK.

The Manx People Power Survey spoke to over a thousand people from different age groups.

48% believe the Isle of Man should be more independent, 43% think it's fine the way it and just 5% want less independence.

Professor Hugh Davidson is responsible for the poll.

He's surprised that people also don't think the Isle of Man communicates properly with the United Kingdom.
