Time 4 Change: Press Release

22 April 2008

Time 4 Change is pleased to announce that it will be holding an event this coming Sunday to discuss a variety hot political issues, including GST, the dual role of the Bailiff, a General election, raising environmental awareness and a need for greater transparency and democracy in Jersey’s political system.

The event, entitled Reform will consist of a series of informal workshop-style sessions in the morning, followed by a public meeting in the afternoon.

The morning session will be from 10am – 1pm and will deal with issues such as, racism and discrimination, voter registration, and engaging the electorate.

The afternoon meeting will be from 2:30 – 4:30pm and will include a panel of speakers comprising a mixture of local businessmen, politicians and academics from outside the island. Once the panel have finished addressing the audience, they will take questions from the floor.

We, the organizers of Time 4 Change, welcome people from all walks of life and all political views, to attend the event. We particularly encourage those who will be voting for the first time in the forthcoming elections, and we are particularly keen to see members of the island’s immigrant community attend.
For more information, please call 07797 740886 or email

Additional information for the press: A Press Conference will be held at 4.30pm, after the meeting has finished. The media are welcome to attend the afternoon session if they wish, but we would ask journalists to refrain from attending the morning session to protect the survivors of abuse, some of whom will be attending the morning session and speaking, but who would not feel comfortable in the scrutiny of the media. We are therefore stipulating that photography and filming be forbidden in morning session.

Confirmed speakers include Rob Duhamel, Roy Le Hérissier, Mario Pirozzolo.
Senator Ozouuf to advise.

Greenfields Staff - Please comment

Please read - I have recieved a comment to my recent blog from a member of staff who works at Greenfields and I have lost it in the system. Whoever wrote it, firstly, thank you for speaking out, and secondly, I am really sorry but please can you write it again as the system seems to have lost it and it needs to be shared on here.

I would also like to apologise to readers for not posting blogs as often as I would like, I am trying my best.

I am trying to get my new business established (remember I lost my job a while ago), fight the States of Jersey for some justice and keep you all informed of the story. It is very hard work so please be patient - my wife has already filed a missing persons report on me.

I will try and respond in the next day or so to all comments left as they are very interesting, I would encourage readers to look back on my blogs and read the comments, sometimes comments are left a few days after the blog has been published and you will only be able to read them if you go back to previous blogs.

Also, I want readers to lead me - tell me what you want to know and where you want my story to go next.

Please can I encourage readers to log in and get a name so that I can see who is making the comments, it will still be completly anonymous as you can make up a name to use.

One thing that has encouraged me to keep fighting are the people who have asked what can we do now? How do we act on this instead of simply blogging? It is simple, find your voice and stand up and be counted. I have a growing number of people who have contacted me about the awful treatment that they have been/are being subjected to as civil servants for the States of Jersey.

The evidence that I am slowly compiling is very interesting and extremely serious - no wonder there are some senior civil servants doing everything they can to try and make this whole saga go away - they have so much to lose.
