I expect most, if not all, States members read this blog. Those who are still undecided, or even those who are, should include the following consideration into their calculus.
A growing number of Jersey's voters are pig sick of the current council of ministers (and indeed the ministerial system of government itself). Yes, there is still a large constituency of increasingly elderly voters who are averse to any change and who will always vote for the parish mafia candidate, but there is a growing body of middle ground voters who want rid of the morally bankrupt and corrupt bunch of spivs in government. A lot of us haven't always bothered to vote in the past, but this time we're very pissed off. We will vote this time.
In the coming elections, do you really want to be seen to be siding with the increasingly despised 'establishment', or do you want to be seen as somebody who is their own man / woman?
The vote of no confidence isn't really about Rob Duhamel's performance as Planning Minister - certainly not in the eyes of the thinking public. It's origin is in his Plemont decision, and he has been a marked man ever since. We aren't stupid enough to really believe otherwise. We can see that dishonesty runs deep throughout the council of ministers, and if Duhamel has been economical with the truth, he is very far from alone.
This is nothing more than a political assassination by the small ruling claque of States members, who want a compliant 'Yes' man in the job. You aren't voting for or against Rob Duhamel, but for or against a concentration of power into the hands of 3 States members.
Do you want to be a part of that, or be seen to make a stand against it? Your seat might just depend upon it come the election.
