Inside the States


Tales from the Royal Square

Royal Square Tales - Episode 2

BBC Radio Jersey's Home Affairs producer brings you an alternative look at the States; it's the perfect remedy for all of you who are fed up of serious reporting on our government and fancy an irreverent look at life in the States.


Les Etats sont Constitué – the roll call is complete and with these words the states is under way. As always members move quickly on to question time and – thinking on their feet – slips ups occur – irritation shows and friendships seem to emerge.

Hamish Marett-Crosby has this slightly sideways looking report on a states sitting which, he claims, nearly didn’t happen – what did go on?

He reveals the one area of the States which, if disabled, would bring an end to our legislative assembly.

He checks on further methods of answering questions, or not, as the case may be, and includes some new entries on the BBC Radio Jersey States Roll of Shame – those who use the un-necessary “with” after such words as “meet” or “consult”.

How are John Donnes and Thomas Jefferson still relevant to today’s States? Follow the link and all will be revealed.
