February Retrospective

Top Ten of my blog postings over last month were:
Free Speech in Jersey, 14 Feb 2014
"I understand that in the present case the Data Protection Commissioner has indicated that she considers it to be likely that similar cases to the present may arise in future and that guidance from the Court as to the approach to be adopted would be welcome." (Court Judgement on Stuart Syvret's Blog)
This highlighted the way in which free speech, whether Hansard transcripts, or the Data Protection Case against Stuart Syvret were eroding freedom of speech in ways which sidestepped Parliamentary privilege, in the one case, and the proper route by the laws on defamation, on the other.
The Lighter Side of Jersey Politics, 28 Feb 2014
A lighter look at the forthcoming bi-election. And the origins of the phrase "an orgy of bollards" (in case you wanted to know!)

Another humorous post, looking in general terms at Nominations, Posters, Canvassing and the Hustings
Commuter Deputies, 26 Feb 2014

The Idiots Guide to Elections - Part 2, 12 Feb 2014
