Deputy Hill Calls Time on Crown Officers?

Deputy Bob Hill, tireless campaigner for Human Rights has lodged a proposition to the States of Jersey for an "independent" review into the roles of the Balliff, the Lt Governor, The Attorney General, The Solicitor General and the Dean of Jersey.

This proposition echoes much of the Clothier report - you remember that report the one which cost the tax payer £234,481.83.!! which led us to Ministerial Government but told us not to cherry pick its recommendations as it would not work.

This proposition will be one step closer to a democracy and deserves the backing of our elected "representitives" I shall be lobbying my States members to back it and would urge my readers to do likewise.

On another note I would like to thank Deputy Hill not only for his proposition and tireless work on Human Rights issues but for showing his support for Blogging and Citizens Media by agreeing to be filmed.
