Treasury Minister
« on: October 05, 2017, 05:14:00 PM »
So maclean is thinking about the elections already. Making business pay tax.
Should just get rid of 0/10 and get our £100m back that we have lost.
Finance will not leave and if some did, well less people on this little rock not to mention cars etc etc.

States members are supposed to lodge a " members interest log " on line. This is to be a transparent effort to alay fears of conflicts of interest and is a formal document published by the States Greffe and a measure agreed by the States 38 to 5 in 2012.

States agree to online transparency of interests

Jersey politicians' interests to go online

The Greffier " must " ?

154    Greffier to maintain register

(1)     The Greffier shall keep a register in which he or she enters all returns submitted and information notified by elected members regarding their interests.
(2)     Any person may inspect the register at the offices of the States Greffe during normal working hours.
(3)     The Greffier –
(a)     shall publish the register on the internet website maintained by the Greffier on behalf of the States; and
(b)     may make further arrangements for its publication.[17

Why is it that members like Treasury Minister Alan Maclean have not signed their declaration ? If it is not signed and authenticated by the minister  it is not a true and accurate picture of what he owns.  How would he stand if cristism was leveled against him, as a fictitious example.

Can you imagine his argument -  Sir and head of PPC I was about to update my portfolio of investments to include the shares in the Guernsey based fund that wants to finance the hospital and was in the proccess of doing so this is why my declaration was left open and not signed ? There was and is no reason to deceive the house.

Then we come on to another issue, different but running parallel. Why is the gifts to politicians including paid lunches and trips register also not up to date ?

Alan Maclean's declaration of interest not signed 5th April 2012.

Or

http://www.statesassembly.gov.je/Pages/Members.aspx?MemberId=94

The same for Philip Ozouf

The same for L. Farnham

The same for P. Bailhache plus no gifts or hospitality recieved.

The same for Eddie Noel

The same for Montford Tadier

The same for Sam Mezec although it appears he did sign, but his signature was blanked.

The same for many other politicians no updating of trips, gifts or a change in financial affairs ?

One fully expects data protection for politicians regarding signatures, are the  hardcopy declarations held by the greffe uptodate ( within thirty days says the rules ) but who is actually responsible for checking the register of both gifts, travel and members interests  whether they are accurate and honest ?

After the Andrew Lewis affair, and with an election on the horizon should not the greffe and ppc get its house in order ?

Boatyboy.

I may be wrong but wasn't it one of the Bailaches that moved all their investments into one company,i think it was Misty Holdings Ltd,just a month before being elected.Exactly what companies are in that one?I guess we will never know.

Yes it was Misty Holdings plus Raddish Holdings which are holding what exactly ?

http://www.statesassembly.gov.je/AssemblyDeclarationsOfInterest/Bailhache%20P.pdf

Of note for those that are interested, Sir Philip has not declared any free meals, gifts, invitations etc whereby other states members have.

There needs to be research by the Mainstream media or at leat PPC needs to get involved to find out why the states elected members are not upholding the 30 day rule
by making politicians declare on the internet as the Greffier  " must  " regarding rules on declarations.

You must be joking if you think they will come clean on the money activities etc etc.
A bunch of crooks!
How many have money in the states private businesses i.e. the housing that went private, the finance centre, the hospital about going to a private investor.
THey all have their fingers in the pie!!    That is the establishment party members.   If only we could get them out!!!   This island and it,s people would be so much better off!
Now is the time to get the people thinking about the elections and who they should be voting for.
You know the pastor "Your country needs you"  well get one telling the people to get registered and get out and vote in May!
Get it into their heads that they can make a huge differents.
