davidchamberlain_900

DOG fouling legislation is ‘limited’ and ‘difficult to implement’, States vet David Chamberlain has said, describing the problem as a ‘serious health hazard’.

Compared with France or Spain, I don't think it is. Nevertheless it is disgusting, dangerous and symptomatic of a lack of pride and discipline. There is no excuse for behaving worse than pigs.

You "find yourself confined to a few (not majority) of beaches"? Last time I looked there were only bans on 7 beaches - this is not a majority on an island with 30 different bays.

And by the way i...

Traffic section charged with displaying electric motorbike

AN ELECTRIC motorcycle, which costs just £1.30 to charge, is in the island with the anticipation that electric scooters will become a popular addition to Guernsey roads within the next few years.

everybody needs to see it and try it first, armchair critics! This bike will blow your mind without blowing your ear drums. Not for nothing e-bikes have their own class at the TT Isle of Man!

Now, I thought Pride of Guernsey was the winner for best cow in the West show 2009? Are we voting for best Guernsey cow of the year, or have I got the wrong end of the conger again?

Yes, I thought this old rabble rouser had been a bit quiet lately. I suppose he needs to stir up something to justify his big fat pay packet.

States will fund kerbside recycling to end of 2017

Money raised by tipping charges at Mont Cuet will be used to help fund the kerbside recycling scheme until the end of 2017.

UP TO £1.3M. has been secured to safeguard kerbside recycling until the end of next year, ending the ‘uncertainty’ hanging over the scheme.

Delight for campaigners as war memorial plans pulled
