Hello local and world readers.

As in Mock the Week a fun TV program that allows us all to have a satirical look at politics we have an ex States members who has written a stinging nasty letter about people like well err actually me, a blogger. Read the whole article here if you want to see the caliber of an ex politician who thinks bloggers are worse than dirt on your shoe.

http://therightofreply.blogspot.com/2012/12/tel-boy-still-squealing-like-stuffed-pig.html

Quote from Mr Le Main my personal favourite, but there are other gems.He says,

With all these people making such criminal claims, allegations and hearsay and using and running some internet blog sites it is impossible for an aggrieved person to take legal action.

End of quote.

So allegations and hearsay says Mr Le Main but how about some hard facts about your behaviour while representing islanders over the years.

Not from me but the so called accredited professional media.

Please remember this man was a deputy and a Senator and although did some sterling work in his early days he actually had to resign. There is more a lot more, watch the brick smashing the green house to pieces.

CTV

Terry Le Main as Housing Minister.

Channel Television learnt that businessman Frank Venton, has been the housing Minister's political sponsor for more than 30 years, despite the Senator denying a long term friendship. Mr Venton, the Creative Director of Vision Advertising has been printing the Senator's election campaign material since 1978. Mr Venton was fined last week for breaching the island's housing laws.

Jersey's Housing Minister is facing a vote of no confidence after he was alleged to have interfered with court proceedings involving a friend.

Social housing in Jersey is not in an appalling state. That's according to housing minister Terry Le Main.

Senator Le Main strongly objected to Deputy Vallois' claims, that accommodation for disadvantaged islanders was in a state of disrepair.

The housing minister acknowledged 18 percent of States owned property needed upgrading. But insisted the majority of that work was replacing double glazing.

http://www.channelonline.tv/channelonline_jerseynews/displayarticle.asp?id=447202

it seems extraordinary that the States-owned stock of homes has been allowed to drift into decline to such a lamentable extent.

Funds for repairs and renovation have, as everyone is aware, been short in recent years, but it is hard to resist the conclusion that some of those responsible for housing policy and practice have been guilty of complacency verging on neglect.

JEP

Deputy Le Main’s worst claims unsubstantiated. The affair has seen the Deputy and his committee being found in breach of the Data Protection Law for a second time after he allegedly disclosed the tenant’s rent arrears to her mother – an allegation he rejects.

HOUSING president Deputy Terry Le Main is to be sued for defamation by the States tenant whose rent arrears he disclosed.

As Terry Le Main writes in his letter to the local newspaper

Quote:

It was unheard of to abuse others by using parliamentary privilege.

End

So why did you Ummmm abuse others using your position as a politician.


Deputy Southern was speaking in a debate on the height of the waterfront towers on Tuesday afternoon, Deputy Le Main was heard to refer to him in an aside as ‘a bloody know-all’.
The Housing president added: ‘I can’t stand the little bastard,’ the States heard yesterday when he was taken to task for his language.

Deputy Le Main was forced to withdraw the comments by the Deputy Bailiff, Michael Birt, when yesterday afternoon’s session began.

So this probably means allowing other elected politicians to put forward their point of view, to allow healthy debate, essential in a democratic parliament, even though it may be well South of your Northern stance or you may not agree at all.

JEP

Senator Le Main has admitted that he is trying to stop Senator Syvret from ‘hijacking’ the speech to make ‘very negative comments’. Asked whether he was doing this in the light of Senator Syvret’s comments last year – where he used the speech to comment at length on child abuse issues – Senator Le Main said: ‘Yes, to be honest, it is. Following comments made on his internet blog, there are quite a few of us who fear that he intends to use the speech to say certain things

http://www.thisisjersey.com/latest/2008/10/31/move-to-prevent-syvret-speech/

I take it that when the good Mr Le Main returns from his holiday he will be taking the JEP, CTV, BBC and of course this forum to court for telling the truth.

Thanks to Ian Evans and all contributors who made this internet post possible.

I notice this letter is not on their website thus there is no have your say section or should i say by not posting it on their webstie they have no need to not put a have your say section whereby the JEP can also be taken to task for insulting poor little Terry or that his claims may be refuted as publicly as he has made them. Standard practice.

 ah.
 being able to comment on the jeps website, always depends which way the wind is blowing.
 most disallowed  comment from the jep , get a airing on this great site.
 those who think  bloggers and their blogs are going to go away . , take a step into the future or the here and now for that matter.
 if the internet was controlled , then  i would hope to see  people with plackards in the street every weekend.
 spain is geting good at it( a good solid protest) i watched this last night ,  and found a few crossover situaions  that sound like our fair isle. god help us.

The JEP also block comments if they have evidence with references that reveal the true situation, it has happened to myself on several occassions. And I am not talking about major controversial issues.

You just have to take a look who they interviewed about this subject of Le Main and then realise that nothing was done. No one interviewed! I suppose there was to many rotten apple in the same barrel as Le Main and that would have really upset the apple cart.

Mr Le Main like other politicians including Sarah Ferguson, Philip Ozouf, Ex deputy Wimberly, ex deputy Bob Hill, deputy Labey, Ex Senator Syvret, Montford Tadier, Trevor Pitman, Deputy Sean Power, Constable Simon Crowcroft and others are free to use the internet and do so on a regular basis to make their point and get their personal views across.

Ex Senator Le Main is more than welcome to write on PJ should he wish to speak his mind on whatever subject he chooses like the rest of Jersey / World.

Looks like the fun has started, and all the doom and gloom about no one bothering is yet more hype to try and kill interest by vested interest.

Thousands vote on reforms in advance


More than 2,000 islanders in Jersey take the opportunity to vote in advance on government reform.
