Government Structure[edit]

This section current includes: "The Council of Ministers comprises the greater part of the House of Keys." This is incorrect. The House of Keys currently has 24 members; the Legislative Council has 11 members; and the Council of Ministers has 9 members. Should this instead read: "Members of the House of Keys comprise the majority of the Council of Ministers"? Contributor tom (talk) 17:57, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

The majority of the population was born in the Isle of Man (47.6%)[edit]

Some basic maths education needed here. 47.6% is not a majority! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.186.176.157 (talk) 17:39, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

I think it was a case of wrong word choice. Plurality would be better - or - something like 'Manx people are the largest group'.--ЗAНИAe born talk

I don't really think plurality is right either it reads like a euphemism and means something else. The expression numerical minority is accurate - say while by far the largest group, those born on Man (47.6%) constitute a numerical minority Manninagh1958 (talk) 06:28, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Europe A-M: Denmark;mis-spelling[edit]

{{geodata-check}}

The following coordinate fixes are needed for Europe A-M:Denmark mis-spelling:"Kort- og martikelstyrelsen" should be "Kort- og matrikelstyrelsen" (matrikel=cadastre)--Bornsommer (talk) 00:21, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

I meant of course regarding the page with the map of Isle of Man which appears when you click on coordinates in upper right-hand corner of this article.--Bornsommer (talk) 00:28, 19 July 2014 (UTC)


Bornsommer (talk) 00:21, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

@Bornsommer: I've corrected the spelling on the English GeoHack page, but I'm not sure what version you were looking at, since the English page read "Kort & Martikelstyrelsen" rather than "Kort- og martikelstyrelsen". (I don't see the words at all on the Danish version of the GeoHack page.) If my correction propagates to the other language versions (this may take a while), all is well. If it doesn't, you need to go to the talk page for the specific language version where you're seeing the error (there should be a "Diskussion", or similar, link near the top of the left-hand column, under the Wikipedia globe) and point out the problem there.

Geography[edit]

Propose to correct some of the wording about the Northern Plain.Manninagh1958 (talk) 15:36, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Celtic Nations[edit]

"As one of the six Celtic nations"...Who defines what are Celtic nations and that there are six as opposed to five or seven? Do different entities list different "nations"? Is this stating a political position rather than cultural fact? Mannanan51 (talk) 00:15, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
