VICTORY AT LAST!
On Thursday June 12th 2008 the IOM DHSS announced via press release that they have officially abandoned all plans to fluoridate
the Manx water supply, the decision was backed by the Council of Ministers.
The efforts to fluoridate the Manx water supply began back in September 2003 so this represents the end of a 5 year battle.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all who have contributed to this massive success especially John Graham,
Dr Paul Connett, Grant McPherson, Quintin Gill MHK, George Glasser, Doug Cross, Liz Vaughan, Ian Packington, Dr Peter Mansfield,
David Gear, Doug & Manna Bairstow, Dawn Taylor, Dr Hans Moolenburgh, Walter Graham, Robert Pocock, Mary Hillary, Bruce
Spittle, Dr A.K. Susheela, Jane Barham, Dr Adam Standring, Cathy and Wayne Justus, Janet Bridle, Leslie Hanson, Dr Mark Draper,
Elizabeth McDonagh, PSM Commissioners, Ramsey Commissioners, IOM F.O.E., Glynne, Krista, Graham, Eva and to the many other
concerned Manx citizens and organisations who helped by handing out leaflets, spreading the word on the issue, writing letters
to the press and government, making calls to the radio, voting 'no' in the poll and by donating funds to the campaign. Also
thanks to our friends and family for putting up with all that a long campaign brings. We would like to dedicate this victory
for common sense and democracy to you all and in memory of Jane Jones of the NPWA who was so helpful and inspiring in the
early days of our campaign.
Thank you all
Kevin Glynn & Greeba Skinner
