IOM Today reports:

UK Labour MP and arch-critic of the Isle of Man Dame Margaret Hodge has made an unsubstantiated dig at the island’s tax policy.

She went on Twitter to claim that ’in the run up to the local elections, Boris Johnson used a private jet to hop around the country…

Replying on Twitter Michael Josem, of the newly-launched Manx Taxpayers’ Alliance, writes: ’It is a shame that a Westminster MP tries to deceive her constituents about the Isle of Man like this.

’The Isle of Man has the same relevant rules as the United Kingdom, and correctly applies the UK law on this issue. She should stop deceiving her constituents.’
