Letter to the Editor of the Jersey Evening Post

Democracy must replace dictatorship

From John Heys.
July 28, 2011 – 2:26 pm

WHAT an excellent job done on your election survey. Well done, the JEP. 
It certainly showed how unhappy people are with how we are being mismanaged.

We now have the clearest message possible that we, the people, have to bring about big change, and the only way to do this – it will be our last chance to stop the rot and get the useless, inept members out of the States – is to get out and vote for new blood in October.
We have been led so far down the wrong road that even with the people of Jersey voting for big change, it will be a long and difficult task. 
But it must be done, and it is up to us.
We have seen that huge petitions, demonstrations and pleas for common sense get totally ignored, and when the damage done is obvious, the perpetrators resign.
We have to get rid of dictatorship and reintroduce democracy. October is when we will have a chance to do it. It may possibly be our last chance.
