About Ramsey (2016)
Ramsey is a town in the northeast of the Isle of Man, bordered by Garff to the southeast, and Ayre and Michael to the north, west and southwest. The town is sometimes referred to as 'Royal Ramsey', following the visit of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1847, which led to the construction of the landmark Albert Tower, after His Royal Highness climbed to the top of the hill overlooking the town and the northern plain. It’s the only constituency whose boundaries have not been subject to change for the 2016 general election. The current members of the House of Keys are Allan Bell, who won his seat in a by election in 1984, and Leonard Singer, who has represented the constituency twice – the first between 1996 and 2003, and again since 2011.
