“We’re not influenced by the politics of Brexit or President Trump, but we do see an opportunity to promote the opportunities in Douglas to those who may be looking to emigrate in these uncertain times,” said Mayor Leu.
She acknowledged “some people might be a bit cranky” about the campaign at the recent Douglas Business Forum, but said people talking about Douglas as a immigration destination was the idea.
The asked some tourists if they’d move here. See page 17 for their answers.
