From Roy Travert. I WOULD like to comment on the proposed new health and safety dwellings law and how its content is out of context for the ministerial department proposing it. Although this law is being promoted as a way to ensure good standards of accommodation, I fail to see how this has anything to [...]
Letters to the Editor
YOUR piece entitled ‘The threat to Britain’s community champions – why press freedom is so important to us all’ (JEP 16 May) makes it clear you are defending press freedom but you were far from clear over what you meant by independent regulation of the press. In fact, you went to some length to confuse [...]
From K Harris. IT amused and then angered me when, just a few weeks ago, some bright spark suggested that unemployed Islanders would find work if they adopted the no-nonsense jobseeking ethic apparently being used by the hordes of east Europeans who have now settled here.
From Darius Pearce. AS a wholehearted supporter of Option A in the recent referendum, it now concerns me that certain supporters of Options A and C, may try to block, delay or divert the States of Jersey from implementing the preference of the people of Jersey in time for the elections which are due to [...]
From Paul Turner. A PERUSAL of the draft Public Health and Safety (Dwellings) Jersey Law does indeed make for breathtaking reading. It calls to mind Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq, where the authorities held a key to everyone’s dwelling.
From E Duhamel. THE craziest States scheme yet is Deputy Pryke wishing to create a snooper’s charter, along with her secret health police, which could well be a breach of our civil liberties.
From James Pearce. FREE speech and speaking one’s mind is all very well, but if, when speaking to a major newspaper, a States Member says something that’s inaccurate, nonsense or just plain silly then they should be challenged on it.
From Janet Chapman. I AM appalled at the prospect of a very large electricity substation proposed for Westmount Gardens. Is nowhere sacred in this Island?
From Elaine Paisnel. HOW I agree with Jennifer Dickson’s suggestion (JEP 30 April) that some of the Treasury’s cash would be well spent on providing a sports centre – or at least a swimming pool for those of us who live east of the tunnel.
From John Heys. DEPUTY Tadier is interviewed by a French newspaper, gives his honest opinion and is harangued by Senator Ozouf who ridiculously referred to him as a Guy Fawkes.
From Trevor Brown. TWO items in your publication of 30 April cause me serious concern.
From Bob Baylis. HAVING just returned from celebrating my 50th wedding anniversary at the Merton Hotel, which was fantastic, I just had to write and thank your lovely Island for the courtesy that your parking planners show to disabled drivers.
