Now its time for the Deputies, Some choice we've all got .

I've been to 2 Hustings & Listened to Sunday's Talk Back & I must admit I'm not impressed at all. Why are they there, they just don't Know what they are getting them self's in to, or are they just naive. Friend's have said it doesn't get much better either in the other Parish's.

With so mush going on at lest they should have a opinion on Parish issues & all major island wide issues, its not good enough for them just to say "I've not read the report so I can't comment".

The Howard League report Shows whats wrong with this Government. How can they say things didn't happen when the report says it did.

Or are they just going with the Jersey Establishment Party to get on the right side of them, so to get there votes, but I hope they don't get in.

There are a few good new candidates but not in every Parish. So the Electorate will go with who they recognize & the good old Jersey Establishment are back in Business.

I'm of the thinking that we should have one kind of member in the States, No Constables & 6 districts. So 41 Members & no Bailiff, just have a chosen speaker. All Members to be voted in on one day ( In the Summer, Like June) so hopefully more people would go out & vote.

People don't like going out in the winter. To dark, to Wet & to Windy for most people.

People need to be encouraged to vote, most people think whats the point, the same old lot will get in. This attitude has to change. Even if we fined people who didn't vote, there attitude may not change, But it may be an idea. Australia Do, Italy Do.

We have to change the stuffiness of the Parish System, you get well it must be about 95% of the people that turn up at Hustings are over 80 asking questions about "What are you going to do about Pavements, Parking, Hedge cutting, Bingo Nights, Football". Well may be not about Bingo Nights but you get my drift. When these people are going to be voting in the States about £106 million projects, that are going to be in the Wrong place, To Big & in our Capital. Then there is the Water Front !!.

Can anybody at this present Moment in time, tell me a good reason to have a finance centre.

Was that question asked at any hustings.

Who do they want as a Chief Minister got asked but not many choose to answer. Well they will go with the party line wont they. Lobby fodder.

Green ideas are good for the Island, but they will cost us a fortune, We pay enough Tax's in Duties for green issues. I would like to see Tidal Power but there's more Money.

So who do we choose, I think its a bit of a Lottery with this lot, will they get nobbled when they get in , that's if they get in, unless you take a chance we wont know will we. But it can't get much worse can it.

We need a new Government. NOW.
