Alf Sworn In

At a short ceremony at Government House, Alf Cannan was presented with his warrant by the Lieutenant Governor Lt General Sir John Lorimer, formally appointing him as the island’s Chief Minister.  

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Cannan said: ‘I am grateful to Members of the House of Keys for putting their faith in me to lead our island forward.  Together, I want us to build a secure, vibrant and sustainable future for the Isle of Man. The work to deliver this for our community starts today.’

Caine is Made Deputy

Mr Cannan wasn’t the only person elected today as Garff MHK Daphne Caine was voted in to serve as Deputy Speaker of the House of Keys.

Covid Inquiry

A new report by MPs has put the UK gov’s decision making during the coronavirus pandemic under the spotlight. It’s led to fresh calls for an independent public inquiry to begin straight away, but the Tories says it will not start before the spring.

The report, by the Health and Social Care Committee and the Science and Technology Committee, says the late lockdown in the early stages of the pandemic is ‘one of the most important public health failures the UK has ever experienced’.

Life Changing Money

The UK’s biggest ever lottery jackpot is up for grabs later in the Euromillions draw. If a solo UK ticket-holder wins Tuesday’s draw, they will scoop the maximum amount possible – €220m – an estimated £184m. The previous largest UK prize was in 2019 when an anonymous ticket-holder won the £170m Euromillions jackpot.

The jackpot for Euromillions – which is played in nine European countries, is capped at €220m, meaning that once it reaches that point it cannot roll over again and add extra prize money.
