Isle of Man set to equalise age of consent

The Isle of Man (IoM) is at last going to equalise the age of consent to comply with the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR); however it is debatable whether it will abolish its equivalent of 'Section 28' (known as Section 38 in the IoM) as the ECHR does not oblige it to do so. Having spent most of my teenage years living in the Isle of Man I pay attention to what is going on there and I obviously take an interest in matters as they affect gays, too.
