I was on the demonstration and what Sam and Sean said was true!
Now whenyou see just what happened in the chamber with the AG and maclean, gorst that they did not know about the Jersey Law when borrowiun g money really makes one think whothe bloody hell is running this island. It is awful that the CoM's just want to get their way with any laws in the way.
Never has there been suck useless members in the states!!!!!!!

I went to the Royal Square and there was about 60+ people who came out and stood by what they think of the CoM's. Now if only the rest of you came out to then just maybe we could get these clowns out of government and get in people who would look after the people of this island. Also stop the finance center. Mind you the materials are already in a factory some where in England  ready to bring over, so it has to go ahead because they would owe money to the factory and show nothing for it.

I have been wondering just how established Ozouf's private residence in London might have become for him. If he was just using it strictly for its purpose (i.e. an occasional place to stop over alone when doing States business) then that's one thing. However, if, by any chance, he is living there with another person and they have now become fairly well established and using it as a regular second home in London, then that might explain why he was so tearful about the prospect of 'stepping aside', because I presume that as a backbencher he will no longer be able to justify these weekly flights to and from the capital. If he wants to continue flitting back and forth there regularly then that could take a big chunk out of his States salary if he is no longer able to get us to pay for it all. Maybe he'll take up some part time private directorship in London to keep funding his visits?

Will the next person to fill his shoes also be able to justify flying to London and back every week, or was it only Ozouf who got those privileges and the next person is expected to stay mainly in Jersey?

This recent FOI request (link below) is interesting because it doesn't necessarily rule out that Ozouf might have been claiming rent or living expenses in respect of his London accommodation - the person who made the request only asked if it was owned by the States and not whether any expenses were being paid to him in respect of living costs. If he has not been claiming any expenses at all in respect of this accommodation then that suggests he is keen to keep the address private so that it isn't picked up by the Press during one of their FOI expenses trawls. Let's face it - Ozouf has never been shy to charge expenses to the Treasurer so he would have to be quite motivated to keep his London home out of the public eye in order to forgo the right to invoice every last cost - including the loo rolls!

By the way, here's a new picture of Ozouf (bald, white shirt, centre) trying to escape Dooley Power's angry Royal Square mob:

A simpler set of questions would be,who pays for his London accomadation,what does he actually do there that he can't do by telephone or e-mail,who authorised or approved him spending so much time there and as External Relations Minister,shouldn't  Bailache  be sent,or is that because he doesn't have a partner in London

Will we be hearing the chants of FARNHAM OUT! >:( FARNHAM OUT! >:( from Dooley Power's supporters in the Royal Square next? After last night's JEP front page revealed his part in the £0.4 million loan to Logfiller, who knows...  :-\

Maclean. Farnham and Ozouf are all culpable as they were all at one time heavily involved with the farce of a fund.

However so are the Board especially Tim Herbert the Chairman. It was supposed to be a voluntary honorary board as proposed by the States but yep they all got paid. They were supposed to do proper checks and here is the good part take Royalties a slice of the cake so to speak and that was forgotten. What else the States said the risk factor was to be no more than 20% the board decided on 50% so went against Government.

The worse part is that board members were conflicted as they were involved with some of the applicants. The C&AG report is also very clear read it: The accounting officer who happend to be the golfing at all cost, rugby club grant giving, South Africa here I come on another Jolly Mike King was supposed to have been in charge and failed miserably.

Say what you like about the stupid politicians but they were not the only ones involved, and when the C&AG suggested bringing in the Justice department is that really a prospect. I mean given that Mike King was not sacked but given a big bag of money and pension by SEB - Gorst, Green Le Bailly, Mezour whatever her name is. Plus a confidentiality agreement. Then Wayne Gallichan was treated in a similar manner.

You know maybe this is why Guernsey does not want to send it's rubbish here. Jersey stinks enough already and they don't want to increase the smell.
