We pointed out that one of our team has disabilities which make it difficult to carry video equipment etc.
The Greffier, Micheal De La Haye's reply included............"The media are only allowed to park very rarely in the Square and it is only to unload something bulky or conduct a quick interview, it certainly isn't long term parking............"
Yet, here is the bright red shiny BBC Jersey staff car parked in the Royal Square for nearly an hour on a non-States day (this Monday) so that the driver can do some shopping just before lunch.
Even H.M. Lt Governor does not enjoy such perks!!!!
Of course it's a total abuse of this facility and another aspect of the oh so cosy relationship that our "accredited" media enjoys and it's a jolly wheeze to have caught it on our Bloggers video. But it is a serious matter too because this public area is so important to wheelchair users and is their only safe route into, and out of, the Royal Court States Building complex.
