|(This comment has been transferred due to an objection towards the original article, but reproduced as it is an interesting comment. Blogmaster) Its not that bloggers will be restricted against lobbying - but that the so called "accredited media" will have more rights than bloggers. Such as the right to record within the States Building including Scrutiny hearings. Anybody who is not "accredited" will not have such rights and it is part of the formula to determine who shall be judged as "accredited" that bloggers "lobby" whereas "accredited" media do not. Yes, it is totally barmy but that is what PPC have dreamed up in a desperate attempt to stifle bloggers and free expression etc. The whole crazy scheme can be found in P100 (Proposition 100) on the States Assembly Web Site - but if you read it don't have nightmares because not even the States of Jersey can be bonkers enough to approve it........|

The banks have proved themselves to be dishonourable.
How? Why? Alternative?
1. By loaning money to people who could not pay it back. Reason – so as to take their
property and make a large profit.
2. By refusing personal loans and suggesting customers use credit cards. The bank then
charges 18% on the overdraft. Not only that – if you are £10,000 over on your credit
card and have paid back £9,900 they still charge you 18% on the full amount. This is
So as the banks can pay themselves large and excessive bonuses. It is we, the public,
who are doing the paying. This makes it very bad for the whole British economy. The
banks are so powerful it is they that rule the economy not the government.
As we own 84% of the Royal Bank of Scotland this is what we do. We pay depositors
2% interest and loan out money at say 10% on secure loans, credit cards on collateral at
12% on a sliding scale. We would not pay bonuses but a fair wage.
This one move would force the banks to do they same which would benefit the whole
economy. They would no longer expect depositors to be satisfied with ½% nor lenders
prepared to pay 15%.
One added advantage – this would free all these very clever but overpaid bankers so that
they could do something useful for society that was not dishonourable.
This is Mo’s Law.

Letter to the Editor of the Jersey Evening Post
2nd August 2010
Where are the expensive failures from?
Here we go yet again. Will our overpaid selecting civil servants never learn? Another
wonderful, highly experienced, foreign department director has jacked the job in after
only four years at the Airport.
No reason given is OK, but it would be nice to know why. At least in the prison fiasco,
one could not get on with the Jersey way and one’s wife could not settle here. Can you
imagine not being able to settle in such a beautiful place? What nonsense.
I trust there will be no golden handshakes and that we, as the ever tolerant taxpayers, will
be assured of this.
So now, with egg all over their faces, the selecting bunchwill have a chance to choose a
Jersey boss for the Airport, and henceforth continue to do so.
For goodness sake, wake up! Just look at your expensive failures; tourism, police, prison,
Where do they all hail from?
