Isle of Man repeals section 38

By 12 votes to 9 the House of Keys has repealed section 38 of the Sexual Offences Act, the island's equivalent of 'Section 28'. Having lived in the IoM during my teenage years I follow closely what goes on there and am glad it has now joined the 21st century.

PS/ See my later post in August 2006 in advance of the coming into effect of the equalisation of the 'age of consent' in the IoM for gays with straights.
