Why are you standing for Senator?

A much fairer society. The very best representation possible.

However, without accountability nothing of real consequence can be achieved. Accountability and how to achieve it is the platform for my manifesto.

IWe first need to deliver an uncompromising message to our government. We the people of Jersey are your employers and from this day forward, we the people demand that you acknowledge this fact by not only words but by your actions.

We are the employers. Every asset of government belongs to the people. I will demand on your behalf not the half-baked freedom of information law that is being proposed by the very people that would seek to keep information that is rightfully yours a secret.

No what we should be demanding is information online for all to see.

Having this information available online will give every person in Jersey the ability to see where every single penny of our money is going.

What can you achieve in 18 months?

We are the employers. Every asset of government belongs to the people. I will demand on your behalf not the half-baked freedom of information law that is being proposed by the very people that would seek to keep information that is rightfully yours a secret.

No what we should be demanding is information online for all to see.

Having this information available online will give every person in Jersey the ability to see where every single penny of our money is going.

Is ministerial government working?

No, but any system can work if there is accountability.

I propose that we either remove the constables from the states or go back to the committee system.

How far do you think Jersey should support the islands finance industry?

Jersey finance has always been well supported. We must diversify our economy. We turned our back on tourism, a great mistake which has led to the down turn in the retail sector and has cost many jobs.

How should Jersey's housing shortage be addressed?

It is not so much a shortage it is the lack of supply of affordable housing.

The state needs to acquire land at a more realistic value. There are ways to deal with this issue.
