I think the idea should be scrapped and the place put to immediate use as a fresh produce market.

I sympathise with the sea cadets, but this place could be a fantastic all-weather area to exhibit t...

if the junkies are willing to keep up this farce they should be made to pay the rent now, or abandon this stupid plan.

We have enough Chinese on our shore`s who will gladly fund it to be built with the help of our young local sea cadets and get this so called junk ship sailing to newer shores faraway and allow the for...

Maybe there are treasures laying in the deep that will pay for these small developments to come to fruition.

Which pier does he intend to use to review these findings? Blackpool? Brighton? Eastbourne?

Why did Deputy Bebbs resign and feels he can lead the HSSD foreword?

You are beginning to sound like me IWV.

Scrap the private sale of fireworks and allow public shows only. This will boost attendance and increase much needed revenue for our football clubs.

Also it will prevent pets, children and old peo...

Cost of ‘lifeline’ is choking us

WHEN are we going to wake up to the fact that the price of ‘security’ with Aurigny’s monopoly is just too high a price to pay?

GM,

Thanks for your comments and I see where you are coming from.

However, it is not nonsense, as airport runway extension proposals would be proportionate, and not excessive. Having the same lengt...

That's nonsense re a runway extension. The demand just isn't there to sustain larger planes and more routes. Unlike Jersey, our hotel bed capacity is tiny. There is no point in trying ...

I notice that comments on GFC are dwindling in a similar fashion to attendances, the naysayers of the past couple of years, particularly ex Northerner, appear to be spot on with their comments.

Campaign against foie gras about cruelty, not anti-meat

VIOLENT torture, cage entrapment and frequent suffocation is the reality for birds reared to produce the fine dining delicacy foie gras, but enough is enough, according to one local animal welfare campaigner.

Excellent editorial comment.
