Alan maclean is starting the year on a positive note and well done to him. The streamlining of selling Jersey is to be taken out of the hands of a States in civil service department and into a vibrant new group.

Next year will see the end of Jersey Tourism.

Economic Development Minister Alan Maclean reckons the island's tourism body will be replaced by spring.

He's been speaking after revealing to the JHA that 'Visit Jersey' - a new marketing organisation - is a step closer to reality.

are the public ( taxpayers) still  supporting the  new group ?
 and  how many civil servants   are on their way to lamotte street to look for a job?

Sounds interesting - seems rather cosmetic though, we don't even have a decent nightclub any more!

 people seem to like being packed in like sardines, i was out  on friday night, the queue, outside , that  pub/ hotel on the weighbridge was huge , plus the queue for a cab.
   i for one do not  want to queue  to get into something  when on holiday, and witherspoons , did not get the deal they wanted , i guess .
 the  money in peoples pockets , all over the world is shrinking , those who can  still afford a holiday without  the credit card , are doing ok.
 virgin travel, have a campain on at the moment, thomas cook cant afford one .
 and there are deals every where .
 those   in the uk  who  can use the channel tunnel do , i was talking to  someone who did , and was amazed  at how cheap it was .
 and  sad to say that most euro town high streets , look  much better than  our knacked old streets .

They should be running a late night bus service to clear the Weighbridge.

The States of Jersey has no idea, when it comes to public transport.
