Senator Stuart Syvret - My Views 3
I have attached Stuart's response to MIke Pollard.
When you read it you will see that despite Mike Pollard's attempts to convince Stuart that all was rosey in the garden and that they (the senior civil servants) had sorted it all out, Stuart felt that he needed to make sure, for himself, whether it actually was all fine.
When Stuart began investigating further he realised that the way the my complaint had been dealt with was nothing but a complete and utter shambles.
If it was not for Stuart then this would have been covered up and brushed under the carpet the way many other complaints havee been dealt with.
So, whatever you think of Stuart, here is the evidence that he was, and still is, prepared to go out on a limb and do what is right for the people of Jersey. My question is this, how many other politicians or senior civil servants would do this? I am sure there are a few but I am also sure there are maney that would prefer to protect their own jobs and pensions before they did what was morally and ethically the right thing to do.
When it comes to voting, I want to vote for someone with a passion for people's rights, a person who will stand up for me when I am being kicked, someone who will help change the culture of oppession and concealment that too many senior figures in Jersey are seemingly hell bent on doing without consideration for the personal cost to others.
Stuart, you get my vote.
