An election candidate for Ramsey says the Isle of Man has been bullied by the UK.

Ramsey Commissioner Leonard Singer believes the Island was forced into a new VAT sharing agreement, and that the Manx Government didn't put up enough of a fight.

Mr Singer has previously served as a member of the House of Keys and Legislative Council.

He says the same applies to the negotiations over the Reciprocal Health Agreement [play clip]
