When discussing the constitutional future of Northern Ireland, Craig stated that his preference was for The UWC strike and its aftermath 145 devolution within the UK. However, he believed that the only ‘realistic’ possibility was that Northern Ireland should enjoy independence on a par with the Isle of Man.99 When challenged by Rees that the adverse public opinion caused by

There was no question they would try and use Strand Three to try and pull Ireland back closer into the orbit of the United Kingdom. As it worked out in practice, it was the Scottish and Welsh administrations and the Isle of Man who showed the strongest interest in Strand Three because it

Policewomen were also involved in the arrest and escort of enemy women ‘aliens’, enquiries (for the War Office) relating to servicewomen who had absconded, the evacuation of schoolchildren, and the provision of support for relatives who were involved in the identification of bodies.47 In addition, 11 women officers from the Met were seconded to the Isle of Man from 1940 to 1945 to undertake escort and surveillance duties with women aliens accommodated at Rushen Internment Camp.48 Conditions of service for

Under Defence Regulation 18B, 600 British subjects of Italian origin, including some women, were also detained; around one-third were from Scotland.9 Internees were deported either to the Isle of Man or the Dominions, and in July one ship transporting internees to Canada, the Arandora Star, was torpedoed killing over 400 Italians.

And I thought, well, my father had said to me, ‘Don’t do anything. Don’t let me go back to the Isle of Man.’ Because he knew that I’ve got a bit of a temper... And being left on my own I’d learnt to fight and I’d learnt to look after myself... So, I says, oh well ‘Alright’ and I thought the uniform, I thought, ‘It’s not too bad.

He represents a wide-spectrum of Celtic traditions from Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Man; his multiple lineages challenge the modern notion of a definitive Celtic stock. Len Platt observes, ‘all attempts to assert the Self by denying the Other are problematized as unstable in the multipleness of Finnegans Wake.’55 In fact, the Self/Other binary is problematized to the point that an authentic Self or an authentic Other ‘is ridiculed, not just through “allusions,” but as a product of the Wake

They each exhibited certain common features as well as special local characteristics. Each place – West Cork, Shropshire, West Sussex, Kent, Swaledale, the Highlands, the Isle of Man, Cornwall and many other locations – all experienced sudden and unprecedented population increases; their agricultural populations rose and eventually fell absolutely as the national population continuously increased. Everywhere, internal migration to local places syphoned

However, he also noted that Hiller was ‘a fervent opponent of Communism and very loyally disposed towards this country’.43 It is also evident that Sykes interrogated Hiller during a visit to the Isle of Man in December 1940; Hiller’s ‘personal file’ contains a letter addressed to ‘my dear Mr. Sykes’, in which he raged against Communist subterfuge and malpractice.44 Sykes almost certainly recommended Hiller’s release from internment. He was freed in January 1941 and his earliest reports followed days later. Few, if any, of those who turned informer were
