A brief post on the collapse of the Jersey establishment.
Remember – how quickly the Soviet Union collapsed.
Let’s hope a similar process happens to the Jersey oligarchy.
Sorry for not posting for nearly a week. It’s been desperate; I’m absolutely knackered.
For those of you who haven’t heard, the vote of no-confidence against the Jersey Council of Ministers is now written and tabled.
See? I took more notice of your opinions on my poll than Frank & Co ever do of the public.
The vote has zero chance of success, of course, but it should serve extremely well as a litmus test – which voters can note when they come to the ballot-box during Jersey’s general election later this year.
In addition to the vote of no-confidence – the Jersey oligarchy are beset with woes – 98% of which are entirely of their own making.
The Jersey oligarchy – being an oligarchy – always wins. Well, that is certainly what they, in their hubris, have come to believe. But I’ve always thought that fate had to catch up with them one day; that they would collapse under the weight of their own decadence like ancient Rome.
And that is what’s happening now.
OK, they aren’t capable of seeing it yet. They know things are pretty difficult for them at present – but they assume they’ll just hunker down in the bunker and tough it out – like they always do – then everything will return to business as usual.
Sorry guys – it aint happening this time.
The fates converge.
Jersey’s toxic waste dump – err – sorry “£330 million Waterfront site” – has been a hot topic here. It’s all too complex for me to go into right now – but basically, name any aspect of a development strategy – and I’ll show you something the Council of Ministers has messed-up – disastrously.
And remember – these people are supposed to be no-nonsense “business men”.
As I remarked on another web site, my cat would be a superior candidate in the forthcoming elections.
He sleeps far more elegantly than States members do when they are slumped in the chamber after a good ‘lunch’. He’s also a good deal more attractive to look at than the average Jersey politician. But – he’s choosy about the company he keeps, so I don’t think he would like it much.
As you may have seen from other sites, a fourth arrest has now been made in connection with the Jersey child abuse disaster.
Give thanks to Lenny Harper and his team.
This arrest is the first of a person who is a current States of Jersey employee.
His name is Danny Wherry – a former police officer, voluntary child “protection” worker – and then – for many years – a senior figure in Jersey’s children’s service. .
If you had any experience of, or contact with, this man when you were in care – or if you know anyone else who has – please, please contact the States of Jersey Police. Or, if you don’t want to speak to the police, contact me. (+44 (0) 1534 610833.)
The arrest of Wherry is merely the first – hopefully – of a number of people currently still within the jersey civil service – or those who retired comparatively recently.
You know who you are – you bastards.
They’re coming for you.
The fates have caught up with you – just as they have with the broader Jersey establishment.
