States in shambles

Post by GD on Wed 11 Mar 2009, 8:54 pm

The States resembled a school playground yesterday as foul language and personal insults flew across the Chamber.
After days of personal animosities being vented in e-mails between States Members, the tensions erupted publicly in a bitter question time. Senator Stuart Syvret stopped proceedings in mid-flow to complain to the Deputy Bailiff, Michael Birt, that the Health Minister was whispering abusive language in his ear. He alleged that Senator Jim Perchard had told him to ‘go and top himself’.
A few moments later, Housing Minister Terry Le Main was accused of fraud by Deputy Shona Pitman.
Mr Birt, who was chairing the sitting, called on the St Helier Deputy to retract her allegations, but she repeatedly refused. Her attack was echoed by her husband, Jersey Democratic Alliance chairman Deputy Trevor Pitman, who questioned Senator Le Main’s integrity and competence.
The unpleasant exchanges began during question time as Environment Minister Freddie Cohen was answering a question. Senator Syvret stood up and said: ‘On a point of order, I am sorry to interrupt the minister. But the minister to my right, Senator Perchard, is saying in my ear “you are full of f*****g s**t, why don’t you go and top yourself, you bastard”.’
Senator Perchard immediately responded by saying: ‘I absolutely refute that. I am just fed up with this man making up allegations against people. I just wish he would not.’ (from thisisjersey)

Oh dear little babies trowing their toys out of the pram ... and these people run Jersey... Oh dear

Until I got to Paul Syvret I thought it was about Guernsey States - we seem to have at least something in common with Jersey then!!!!!

Paul le Claire much put down States Deputy in Jersey, shocked many by holding up the all important executive of Jersey. He said that 14 Chief executives meet every week and there is no record kept for the public to hear what they decide or think.

Interestingly he has a point as this top group of civil servants are earning as much as £275,000 pounds a year plus expenses. You would think that surely they are polite enough to tell the taxpayer paying there wages, what important words they are using to earn such amounts. I am sure some do a good a job. How are we to know ? Transparent Government it seems has not quite arrived just yet. Thanks to wonderfull internet sites like VUE DES ISLES these questions, and information can be brought to us, the people in the street and the taxpayers.

Sunshine is a great disinfectant.
