"Whatever the apparent cause of any riot may be, the real one is always want of happiness". Quote from "Rights of Man" by Thomas Paine. Protest is an inevitable result of government. This Blog provides a space for those individuals and groups who want to express their views and grievances in a democratic and considered way - especially where elected representation has failed.
|Dear States Memebers|
Tomorrow the States of Jersey sit at 2.30. The Chief Minister should in any proper democracy be making a statement on how TWO Senior Civil Servants waltzed off with £800,000 pounds. So serious is this allegation it should be first on the order paper and not waiting for a question during questions without answers.
Who Sanctioned this?
Where is the audit trail and contractual evidence that they were entitled to these payouts?
Where did the money for these payouts come from?
These two top Civil Servants were both discredited by the Napier Report (Ogley) & Verita (Pollard)
The allegation that these two Civil Servants obtained such obscene payouts must be explained fully and not with the usual vagueness we have come to expect from our ruling elite
Their positions became untenable and they get Alleged Golden Handshakes
First up, an alleged £500,000?
Next up an alleged £300,000.? Wasn't waiting around for the conclusion of the Verita Report
Now I have my own opinions on the above matters but await with 'baited' breath the conclusions reached by our Chief Minister and the States of Jersey Employment Board.
We must have proper & concise answers given regarding the alleged pay- offs.
If more States Members had spent less time stamping their feet and instead listened to what decent States Members were asking we might not have found ourselves in this awful mess
Truth, Honesty & Integrity
