King Dave makes IOM papers
THE self-appointed King of Mann has offered to come to the aid of his ‘cousin’ Prince Charles – by offering him a job in his tyre company!
Just for the record, here's the official Manx Government line:
The Ministry of Justice, the UK Government Department with responsible for hereditary titles, has researched the issue and concluded that Rights granted to Sir John Stanley or anyone else before or after the reign of Henry IV in relation to the Lordship of Man and which had passed down eventually to rest with the Dukes of Athol, have been fully and inalienably acquired by the Crown. Any rights which Mr Howe states to have been vested in his ancestors and to have passed down to him, have been extinguished and rest with Her Majesty The Queen."
So, as far as the Isle of Man Government is concerned, the Isle of Man does not, and has never, recognised any other than Queen Elizabeth II, Lord of Man, as the Island’s legitimate Head of State.
