So many things that happen here in Jersey make me wonder what on earth is going on. And like many of us I usually form judgements based on what appears in the local media. However, because I realise that the media is not the only source of information, or the most comprehensive or even reliable, just the most convenient, I decided I’d try and build a more detailed pictures about some of the activities in the States, and the island as a whole, that particularly annoy, bewilder, or generally just make me think “what the xxxx?”
I don’t know how I’ll do, I have every good intention, and I actually feel like a bit of a sleuth, but really all I want is to be able understand things properly and if they’re wrong perhaps be able to do something about them, not just feel frustrated because I have formulated possibly wrong opinions based on inadequate information.
Notwithstanding all of this I confess that my views may be born of ignorance, but I doubt I’m the only one who is ignorant of a lot of how this place operates, and if by doing this I learn something, and share something, it will be worth it.
I won’t sign my name, as it’s irrelevant – it can be found if you’re really interested but the point is I’m not speaking just for me, I’m just illustrating what seems to be worrying activities

Ten years later…
Haven’t achieved much other than getting beaches cleaned more thoroughly by stopping the practice of raking up seaweed then dumping IN THE SEA!?? I feel like I contributed to that.
Now what to look at.. The environment is a worry, building and population – well we’re pretty fucked on that one, The Hospital? I’ll see what inspires the next post.
