Dently - Your
I believe that Jersey needs some form of facilities to
draw in a new generation of tourist - the bucket and spade period has
gone, and we appear to appeal to an 'elderly generation'
is fine, but these folks won't be here forever - who is going to replace
them ? The Battle of flowers is past its sell by date, as is the Battle
of Britain day.Attendance figures confirm this.
events are great, but will not bring in the younger generation that we
need. At the same time we do not want to become the new Ibiza - attracting
the clubbing generation that 'Annoyed' wants will not bring in income.
feel we need to move 'upmarket' and try to turn Jersey into the sort of
place that would appeal to "the weekend break" market year-round.
Some sort of facility that compliments the new gardens at Rozel would
The steam clock does not run on steam, it runs on electicity. How or why
on earth do they call it a steam clock?
John - Radio phone in
I was under the impression that Saturday night TV has always been the lowest
common denomenator trash. If they bring back Noel Edmonds I am off to outer
there is always BBC 2 and channel four or the good old radio.
Simonetta - Smoking
and Drinking discussion
I think non smokers (at work) should get extra annual leave
if smokers are taking time to have "fag breaks".
would probably encourage the "smokers" to give up, knowing they
are loosing out.
regard to upping the age to 18 to be sold fags, why don't 16-18 year olds
who already smoke be registred as smokers (like addicts are) and carry
photo ID with their age on so they can still buy fags if they choose.
everyone else would get refused until they were 18, which by that age,
I reckon the majority of young people wouldn't wanna smoke anyway (smoking
nearly always starts during teenage years).
This may mean less and less smokers for generations to come.
have to go, it may be not be fair but neither is having your eye pecked
out by a filthy stinking flying rat.
though, I always thought that if I was rich enough I woul gladly pay for
the amunition to have these pests shot, and thats coming from someone
who doesnt even like killing Ants.
Kebab - Gull Cull
Now I'm not one for cruelty to animal or birds of any sort, but I have to
say that these are the most annoying of all kinds, they do nothing but squawk,
rip open your bin bags and crap all over the place, and I'm sure you've
all seen what happens when they have been eating strange foods!!!
I think that
every Sunday there should be a Seagulls Shooting Competition, during the
week the states round up as many Seagulls as possible, then on a Sunday
they release them all at once, everybody on the Island is supplied with
Machine Guns and ammunition in order to shoot as many as they can, the
person with the highest killing score wins a prize!
figured out what the prize should be yet though! Sounds fun to me!
- Gull Cull discussion
I have a solution that will suit both the Yes and No votes...
Remember the Arnie movie Running Man and how the prisoners were controlled?
Yes, that's right. We put tiny explosive collars round every seagulls
neck and set up a perimeter in which they can and cannot fly. For example,
they can fly over the Channel, or anyones house who is anti-cull. They
cannot fly over my house or town. If they fly in a 'no-fly zone' their
heads are blown off..........
