MILKMEN and women face losing their livelihoods over time, one devastated delivery man said yesterday as the States agreed to allow shops and supermarkets to deal directly with Guernsey Dairy.

I am not telling anyone what to do

I am saying what I believe is worth preserving, the States as a whole decide what will happen in this island.


Dave Jones might not be a true lifelong local but at least he has the working class islanders best interests at heart which is more than can be said for the vast majority of our deputies.


Drivel, but carry on anyway.

Sunday trading vote ‘absolutely wrong’

A DECISION to approve total deregulation of Sunday trading was made with a ‘complete lack of consideration’, one parish constable has claimed.

sorry terry, but I'm so surprised how you are going on about this, you usually say things that make lots of sense to me, but you and Beanjar are just going on and on about this! Please let's just tr...


I like the way Dennis refers to the 'we' as if he is representing a whole swathe of the population or a Union representative with a mandate for thousands of people. As far I can tell, the 'we' is mere...

Fuel up, other rises to spend more on health


FUEL duty will be hiked, personal income tax allowances frozen and large retailers hit by tax increases, under a string of proposals in the 2016 Budget, to help cover a rising health budget.

I totally agree, but there is no backbone there at all.

Shops still to decide about opening doors on a Sunday


UNCERTAINTY has greeted the States’ move to deregulate Sunday trading.

Those in favour of Sunday opening have failed to take into account what you write.

In the UK, village shops have been closing down for a while now, leaving some villages without any at all, (includin...


Well, my memory is not fantastic either. But I honestly don't remember people saying that selling petrol and alcohol would be the end of the world. I thought it was a popular move and overdue. I kno...


Spot on again Terry.

B&Q here will take no more money opening 7 days a week over 6. From a profit point of view they'll have less on the bottom line.

Be interesting to see how this pans out....

Sunday trading laws axed


SUNDAY trading is to be deregulated.

Something wrong with my statement?

Leopardess survey ‘must be impartial’


MARINE traders and experts have applauded States members for using their ‘common sense’ in delaying debate on the replacement for the Leopardess, but they have warned that a survey of the fisheries protection vessel has to be totally independent.

"soon-to-be-housing site at the Pont Vaillant"

Really? This is a joke right?????

Herbert Roth

But I thought she's worn blind numerous times that she isn't a property developer & did not buy that site with a view to profiting from rezoning for housing!

"that it was more cost effective to trade-in and replace"

I am unaware Will that the Leopardness refit was ever costed? It doesn't appear in the Billet if it was.

Booked early for ‘cheap fares’

I HOPE your readers will forgive another letter about our local airline, but I felt compelled to put pen to paper. We are travelling to Paris in eight months’ time and I recently went online to book our flights. For three adults, one child and one infant flying with easyJet on a one-hour and 20-minute flight from Gatwick cost £460. There was no charge for the infant.

£540 for 4 people seems pretty good value to me. Please also note Gatwick-Paris doesn't take 1hr 20, much the same as Gatwick-Guernsey doesn't take 30 mins.

Calais venture will ‘incite immigrants’

I WRITE in response to Martin Gavet’s lengthy reply (Guernsey Press, 22 September) to my letter printed the same day concerning the possible impending action of Guernsey Bridge2Calais. On reading his carefully selected comments, taking up virtually a full page of the Guernsey Press, it would appear that all that he had written was and is readily available to the general public, all of whom are no doubt aware of the humanitarian crisis now unfolding.

I don't often agree but Tony, you are right.
