It seems that we have reached a little nadir (an extreme state of adversity; the lowest point of anything) with personal insults and repetition of the same points being played out on a daily (and nightly) basis. This does not serve the best interests of the forum, or facilitate informed political debate. I have been contacted by many posters in recent weeks from both sides of the camp who are finding it increasingly more difficult to make valuable contributions because they are put off by the animosity contained within certain threads. You are all intelligent and informed people and there is no need to slide into this form of retaliatory discourse. So re-read this thread from the start, re-familiarise yourself with the basic principles of the forum and elevate your political and cultural arguments above current levels.
This is not just your forum, it is for all the people of Jersey who have an active interest in the way our politicians goven. Use it properly and it can be a very powerful tool but if treated badly if will always struggle to be the catalyst for change that many hope it can be.
