Democracy Terrorists. Re-Post
After last night's successful meeting organised by SAM MAZEC and attended by a number of the island's youth with an interest in politics and what appeared to be a distrust of the local State Media we have been asked to re-post our in-depth interview with Former Deputy Daniel Wimberley, who also attended the meeting.
So Here it is.
Further to the Press Release and Open Letter issued by Former Deputy Daniel Wimberley and published by VFC HERE we bring our readers/viewers an in-depth interview with the man who, with his Proposition, P.15/2011 attempted to bring something that resembles Democracy to our Island.
As we have reported in our previous posting the proposition has been butchered beyond recognition and the Electoral Commission has been loaded with politicians who clearly have a vested interest in its outcome and in some cases publicly stated those interests (keeping the Constables to name but one).
In possibly the most in-depth and frank interview, the Former Deputy has ever given, he shares with us his frustration and anger at what has been allowed to transpire from his original proposition and once more urges those with integrity to steer well clear of this hijacked Electoral Commission.
This video interview should be watched by, or sent to, anybody with a true interest in Democracy and ask themselves "has the chance of Democracy been sabotaged in Jersey in favour of Feudalism?" Could this have been allowed to happen if we had an independent mainstream media who would challenge our government? Why didn't Senator Bailhache, who claims he wants to consult with the public, turn up to the two Parish Assemblies? Why did he not take up the offer to publicly debate the issues with Mr. Wimberley? Could anything like this happen in any other supposed western "Democracy?" Why don't the State Media ever address the perception of feudalism?
Mr. Wimberley calls, what has been allowed to happen to this Electoral Commission, "Democracy Terrorism." Watch the video and you will see how difficult it is to disagree with him............
Mentioned in the interview is the son of a constable when it is in fact the son of a "former" Constable.
