I don't object to the small parking spaces but get very annoyed when I see small cars in the larger car spaces when there are empty spaces in the small areas. An example is the Albert Pier - the smal...

Alvin, have you been down north beach recently during the week? All the small car spaces are gone at exactly the same time as the "big car" spaces.

But it's not a race track, it's a cycle path, with rumble strips designed to slow people down before the crossing. Most cyclists go at 10mph or slower along there, hardly fast (imagine if the road wa...

We don't know the facts at the moment, but people are very quick to blame the new layout which is hardly a tight bend. Of course we should be concerned with what happened, like we should be conc...

Now I'm starting to get quite concerned that somebody with your slender grasp on reality, and possibly paranoia, is involved in any way with impressionable children.

I do keep up, very succinctly, with everyday events and otherwise.

I also have a firm grasp on reality, which, it is apparent, the 'protestors' do not.

In my honest opinion steadily and modestly rising prices are the best for the island (that’s probably controversial). The squeeze on the middle of our society is ridiculous with things like social g...

Even if people don't move on the increase in housing supply will help to bring down prices for everyone else, this is one of the most effective ways to bring down prices.

Guernsey taxpayers contribute to the subsidised Aurigny flights back and forth to the tune of £25 per person per journey. Get over yourself.

Market abuse: we have right to know

IT WAS interesting to listen to the chief executive of the Channel Islands Competition and Regulatory Authorities on BBC Guernsey radio on 2 February when he explained their function. He said that their purpose was to look out for consumers, to be an economic regulator and to have a reactive role towards the competition laws. He said they are an independent authority but answerable to the Economic Development committee. But I continue to be concerned since, on 29 March 2016, the Guernsey Press referred to Cicra’s involvement in an investigation into ‘significant market abuse’ in relation to a States contract, a potential breach in competition laws and material implications for islanders. It was later reported that this referred to a multimillion-pound States contract.

One of the questions was how many times will you travel to and from the Island maybe Aurigny will benefit

Maybe they can start to pay back the loan from their income stream

I wonder if sometimes the Yorkshire man in charge believes he is helping Visit Guernsey to top up their figures when he signs off on outsider tenders like this?
