Manx identity could be stronger according to research

Mon, 08 Aug 2011

Around 5% of people born on the Isle of Man see themselves as British not Manx.

The Manx People Power survey questioned Island residents about their national identity, which the Government says is one of its priorities.

Of those born off-Island, a third said they considered themselves Manx.

The survey also looked at how the public sees the Island's relationship with the UK.

Most rated the relationship averagely, with over half saying it had worsened over the last three years.

Professor Hugh Davidson, who carried out the research, says it would be nice if more people considered themselves to be Manx [play clip]
