League's new secretary slams gov't

Allen Moore honoured to take role

The new Acting Secretary of the Celtic League has hit out at government for 'ignoring the needs of the people'.

Allen Moore has taken over the role from veteran Roy Kennaugh, who died suddenly last month.

Formerly the pan-national group's Environment Officer, Mr Moore says he is 'honoured' to take on the role.

In a statement, he's accused politicians from across the Celtic world of allowing English and American influences to usurp native cultures, while paying 'lip service to diversity'.

He goes on to suggest the Manx government is 'servile' to groups like the Chamber of Commerce and the super wealthy.

The Celtic League Mannin Branch will hold its AGM in April.
