I started this topic and  nothing I have heard or seen since posting it from Mr Power has change my mind - he does not get my vote - I applaud him for coming on the boards though!

When Lenny Harper gave that press conference his oficers were  already well into a chid abuse investigation covering many institutions on the island and not just HDLG.

I am sorry if Mr Power did not appreciate the content of that press conference, IMHO it was  a tactical move on two fronts -

The first being to ensure that the Jersey authorities could not 'put a lid on it'
The second to encourage victims/staff to come forward.

Mr Power when did you last post on BLOGS, I would have appreciated your comments earlier in the year - why now?

 Hi,

I was aware of this site and other blog sites, but to be perfectly honest, do not visit very often.  I was aware of the Creepy Valley one, this one and two others. I rarely if ever post. When Adrian announced his candidature last week, I wrote to him and wished him well and registered on this site for the first time.

I have thought about a website of my own, but to be frank, this is as good a forum as I have seen.

So, I suppose the approaching elections and all the associated posts motivated me to register.

I stand by my earlier comments on SOJP.

I am surprised that you have not looked at websites/Blogs Mr Power, it is through sites such as this one and Stuart Syvrets that the public can become informed and discuss ideas and politicial ideology, other traditional forms of media in the island do not serve the population particularly well.
Welcome aboard!

I don't understand why some of you are giving Sean Power a hard time.  I thought his Talk Back participation 2 months ago was one of the best to listen to in ages.

The conflicts of interest have been brought up for years and I mean years.  I remember the issue being brought up in court.

Hi,

I have just seen this one.

To Rico Sorda:  All the money for FranK ???Do you mean the increase in the budget for the Chief Ministers Department ?  Yes, I did agree that. The Assembly had a report stating that the expanded work of the CM , especially in the external areas relating to Brussels and London was deficient and we approved an extra amount of money. Did you know the Constable of St. Helier has a P.A, and the Chief Minister did not ?  It is the office of the Chief Minister we are dealing with not Frank Walker. If the next Chief Minister wants to change things , whether it is going to be Terry Le Sueur, Ben Shenton, Philip Ozouf, Freddie Cohen or Paul Routier (they are the only possible runners) then so be it.

On toxic ash and Stuart's proposition for a Committee of Enquiry. I voted against that. This infill on the West of Albert was done in the early 80's. It is now about to be excavated again. That has started on the Castle Quay development. Whoever authorised the dumping of the bottom ash and fly ash down there was very wrong. In the 25 years since then, all environemental issues are now so much to the fore and sensitive and rightly so. I think it would have been an almost no return for taxpayers money to haul some retired civil servants before a committee and the same for one or two retired politicians.

On GST, I voted against GST everytime.I then voted against exemptions.   We must keep GST simple. We cannot have a UK VAT look a like monster.  That takes battalions of  civil servants to do the exempting.  If we have to have the bloody thing, then this clamour for exemptions will give any future Treasury Minister carte blanche to raise the base rate. I don't agree with that. I don't agree with GST as I am still unconvinced we need it.  It is the GST is the problem, not GST on food.

"Did you know the Constable of St. Helier has a P.A, and the Chief Minister did not?"

Strange that.  I know for a fact that he has had a number of PA's who he shares with Bill Ogley.  They never tend to stay very long hence the oft seen advertisements for a new one.

They don't half go through PA's those two!
