Now we get to witness the really scary reality of letting the current Assembly run for another 12 months. We hear from the likes of Hansmann Rouxel, Merrett, Gollop, De Sausmarez (obviously) and others about how we can reinvent Guernsey into a ‘Green’ Shangri la. It is more like La La land. What are these people on? We all know we must be cognisant of the climate challenges but there is a real danger that these people get Islanders money put into crazy pet projects or curtail Guernsey freedoms.
Deputy Merrett screeches (literally) about how wonderful Guernsey is (well, we who have lived here most of our lives know that), and what may be needed is to build our own Eden Project to make us a desirable destination. Has she not grasped that we will no longer have a tourism industry, certainly not for years and maybe never again? How can we let visitors from Covid-affected locations enter our island (without isolating them) and risk bringing back the lockdown misery we have had to experience?
Further, these starry-eyed idealistic individuals are looking to change society as we have known it. You have been warned…….
