It is not correct about this.  The person who said it got mixed up with Croatia.

General Discussion / Re: Police and speeding fines
« Last post by Jerry Gosselin on Yesterday at 09:09:43 AM »
There is so much legislation constantly being churned out of the States sausage factory these days that I honestly couldn't tell you whether on the spot fines is the latest fat sausage to make it off the production line without any quality checks.

A very good indicator these days of what laws apply (or will soon apply) in Jersey is just to check whether Westminster or one of the other devolved assemblies has recently introduced the latest great idea to fine us for something we do or to further clamp down on our civil liberties. Check the national media each week to see what stupid ideas the Press barons or politicians are now proposing. You can be very confident that some Jersey States Member (nearly always Tadier) will be interviewed on TV before the end of the same week to question why Jersey doesn't yet have that exact same law and when will Gorst bring forward his own proposition?

The longer Tad spends studying his news feeds, the more ideas he sends to ITV News and BBC, who both adore the sound of his voice as much as he does. Example: Wales forces every resident to donate their organs after death - Tad wants to know why we still aren't doing the same thing to help save the life of some guest on Victoria Derbyshire who doesn't have a face but would like one. Tad should donate his own face as he'd still have the other one that he could use. ;D

Childrens' Commissioner? Well that was Paul Le Claire's news snatch of a decade ago which he is now tripping over his tongue to remind everyone. It won't stop any child from being abused but the politicians love it because it is a new idea which hasn't been thought of before, which makes them look like great reformers.

This week it's the sugar tax on the poor. Not Tad this time (as far as I know) but the latest idea from the Jersey health fascists. Why? Because one or more of the UK assemblies is planning to introduce it so we must have it too to avoid looking old fashioned. Dame Hilton's proposed criminalisation of people who feed seagulls? I believe some local councils on the mainland may have given her that idea. One council apparently went as far as changing the day when the rubbish was collected in order to fool the seagulls - no I bloody kid you not! The result was total confusion for local residents but the seagulls quickly sussed what had happened and simply raided the bins on a different day.

Now I wonder if Tad has heard about that idea...  :-\

I was told the other day that a motorist was stopped for going over the speed limit. The police officer said you can pay the fine now or go to the parish hall.

The real,"Powers that be", are quite happy to have a snowflake as a figurehead.

They cannot do that can they?

gorst is a very weak man indeed. The Jersey Way still alive and kicking.  They will just not make any apology to Power, Harper and Syvret.
Weak man standing is gorst. He could have made himself look good if he did apology.

Maybe now would be a good time to reveal the Mackenzie report,now that Gorst is sorting out the Jersey way.While he is at it,maybe he could also share the secret report on the pros and cons of 11k's in the island.
Or maybe his backbone has gone all wobbly again.The more I think of this man and his inability to deal with anything the more he disgusts me.Why is Lewis still in the states even?

THE economic output of Jersey’s finance industry has declined almost 30 per cent since the pre-recession peak in 2007, new States figures have revealed.

http://jerseyeveningpost.com/news/2017/06/28/30-fall-in-finance-industry-economic-output/

In 2014 it was becoming clear that Senator Philip Ozouf felt that ( elected ) backbench politicians should be excluded from any decision making or important policy information by the executive council of minister, as shown in this posting.

General Discussion / The Bailff

If the bailiff becomes no longer the speaker in the house will he have to take a pay cut because hal;f his job will have been taken away from him. Should he keep his salary or freeze it until it comes in line with pay raises in the future?

Chief Minister Gorst was praised by politicians accross the divide in the States, for the way he handles the explosive Child Abuse damming report.

See what £50,000 of specialist spin doctors gets you ? No No NO ! It came from the genuine heart of CM Gorst ?

If you remember ex Chief of Police Graham Power was suspended by Deputy Lewis, never let back to work, never charged with any wrong doing, in fact praised by the gold team overseeing operation rectangle. Retired being still suspended.

Today Mr Power is not happy that the Politician at the time - Andrew Lewis,  lied at least twice, once to the states back then, and also to the Child Child abuse panel. He has put an official complaint into the man who wants change,  CM Gorst head of the Jersey Government, over ten days ago. Is Mr Power being treated with courtesy, with respect and with the new transparency and openness preached by  CM Gorst.

VFC.

Getting back on to topic. Has Graham Power had a reply from chief minister Gorst in respect of the criminal complaint he has made against Andrew Lewis?

I can confirm that Mr. Power sent his complaint to the Chief Minister on the 5th of July and has NOT received so much as an acknowledgement of his complaint let alone a reply. This, in itself, is "The Jersey Way" in action. One would have hoped the Chief Minister would have been acting swiftly and decisively but to not even acknowledge receipt of the complaint is a very poor show and gives little confidence that anything has changed despite the COI (damming) report.
