Unfortunately I haven’t been at this weeks Tynwald Sitting as I am in Jersey at the British Isles and Mediterranean Region Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Annual Conference but have been following proceedings. I see that John Houghton MHK has been suspended by the President for refusing to apologise following a Committee report on his actions and representations over a member of Tynwald Staff.

This does seem to reflect badly on the way we behave in Tynwald but having read both sides of the argument it’s a shame Mr Houghton couldn’t have apologised and put the matter behind him.
