Jersey is little more than an elected dictatorship

Posted on

The Jersey Evening Post has reported that Guernsey's Housing Minister, Dave Jones has condemned Jersey's fledgling executive government system as a failure, saying:

Jersey went for a form of executive government that clearly is not working. Nor does it have a general election in the true sense of the word. It has a series of elections for officials, Deputies and Senators.

Guernsey has a system which gives the people government from the bottom up, not the top down, and the real control over policy remains firmly on the floor of the assembly - not, as in Jersey, behind closed doors by a handful of ministers.

To be blunt, the Jersey system is little more than an elected dictatorship.

It is very hard to argue with that.
