Protesters against the use of Ronaldsway Civil Airport by the RAF for the training of pilots (including personnel from the Royal Saudi Air Force) based at RAF Valley in North Wales were asked to remove themselves from the area adjacent to the terminal today.
It seems Saudi military pilots who go on to commit war crimes bombing civilians in Yemen are welcome at the Airport but peaceful Manx protesters who pay the taxes that maintain the (loss making) Airport are not.
Report from Manx Radio:
