Former Isle of Man chief minister Tony Brown gives an exclusive interview to Paul Speller in the February edition of Money Media.

Mr Brown, making a rare public comment on political matters since his retirement from politics in 2011, tells Paul: ‘There is no doubt now – and we tried to get the chancellor to realise this – that the system is not fair.

‘It takes no recognition of any of the money spent by the people of the Isle of Man in the UK.’

He also talks about the need to support local business and to ensure that towns other than Douglas receive government support.
