How the hell nobody has brought a vote of no confidence against Ian Le Marquand is one of the bigger mystery's.

He kept Graham Power suspended on the word of Warcup, who had admitted to destroying evidence and Gradwell, who ILM himself had said would be facing disciplinary action for allegedly leaking confidential information to a "journalist" while the Child Abuse Enquiry was still live.

Being able to read the statements on the blogs is helpful but to fully understand the situation, it is best to be able to hear the politicians in their own words.

Thursdays meeting at St Clements Parish Hall on the 21st of February was very informative with Deputy Le Heriser explaining he’s amendments to the voters of the Parish, along with others who chose to be there, giving as to what the electoral reform commission entails.

It does not bode well for the Democracy of this Island even States Members at the meeting admitted it was not their right as Politicians to sit in or on any Independent Commission on electoral reforms.

Public rights could be in danger of being compromised, this Independent Commission as D Wimberly laid out was not intended to be watered down with any politician being a part of the process or with the possibility of Senator Philip Bailache or any other States member should sit as Chairman.

This could be a possible risk to Democracy as we know it, and possibly yet again a waste of Taxpayers money.

As this is an opinion. It would be interesting for others to have a chance to also share their views and vote accordingly at the Town hall on Wednesday 29th Feb at 7pm.
