"Order, order! Those in favour say 'Aye', those against 'No'!"

Inside the finely restored 19th Century home of the Manx Parliament, visitors become members of the House of Keys through the ages, debating and deciding upon momentous issues from Manx political history. Should women be given the vote? Should motor racing be allowed on Manx public roads? Listen to the arguments for and against and then cast your vote!
