March for Equality!




The 8th of July 2014 could be remembered in Jersey political history as the day the States of Jersey disgraced itself by failing to stand up for equality for all islanders because they didn't have the courage to oppose those motivated by homophobic tendencies, or it could go down as the day that islanders realised that nothing will change here unless they mobilise and organise.

The lesson that must be learnt from yesterday's shameful events in the States is that we have a collection of politicians who are completely out of touch with reality, but that situation is completely down to the fact that too many good Jersey men and women just don't go out to vote.

In October we have an opportunity to completely overhaul the membership of the States and replace those that were too cowardly to back equality with members with more integrity.

Not voting is not an act of protest, it is an act of surrender.

Reform Jersey has pledged to hold a rally and march this Saturday for those that believe in equality for the LGBT community. We'll be gathering at the Royal Square at 12pm before marching to Liberation Square at 12.20pm to hear from guest speakers and campaigners on what Jersey people can do to make sure from October we have a States that will have the courage to drag Jersey into the 21st century.

We hope you will join us.



In the meantime, here is a list of all the States Members (plus email addresses) who were too scared to do what was right, and instead kicked this into the long grass.

There are names on this list that I am incredibly disappointed to see there. They are not homophobes, but they naively backed an amendment that was fuelled by homophobia, having been duped by the more reasonable (although totally phony) elements of their argument.

But most disappointing of all is our so-called Chief Minister Senator Ian Gorst who has demonstrated that he is not the Chief Minister of the islands LGBT community. He could have followed the admirable example of the Prime Minister David Cameron who (in my opinion with complete sincerity) pushed for equal marriage, even though it would be difficult to reconcile with large parts of his political and electoral support basis.

Instead, he put it off to another day and refused to stand up and tell gay and lesbian islanders that he is a Chief Minister who will represent them and stand up for their rights.

For this alone, he does not deserve a second term as Chief Minister and I will not be voting for him.

  1. I wonder if Twitter abusive troll Monty Man Hunter will be there, Deputy? He should be being the only pretend gay in the village! Good luck and well done with your speech and proposition. Senator Le Marquand should be ashamed along with all of the other homophobes.

  2. I might drop by to watch the tumbleweeds...

    When will you realise two of the most important things:
    1. Your politics does not suit Jersey. Just as in the USA, Jersey has a degree of 'liberalism', which does not equal your perspective. You are not going to change that, particularly one with such an ageing and religious population.
    2. When it comes to voting, the majority of Jersey voters have mortgages, children, and whilst might agree with some of your liberal agenda - we won't vote with that in mind. Key priorities are financial security, and the health and education for the children. Marriage equality will not feature.

    When you live at home with Mummy, you probably don't care about these things, but the voters of Jersey have it at the forefront of our minds.

    Good luck for this weekend - you are going to need it....

  3. Sir - you exhibit a profoundly external locus of control in this instance which is worrying in a politician charged by the electorate with bringing about change.

    If the reason for the votes to delay your proposition are down to cowardice or homophobia then what you lead us to believe is that there is nothing you could have said or done that could have overcome such character flaws in your colleagues. That is not the attitude to approach reverses with because it absolves you of the need to look inwardly at what you and your party could have done better.

    It will be far more productive and forward-looking to focus on what you could have done differently to influence the vote (could you have planned better, researched better, articulated your case better?).

    I am a firm believer in the cause you are championing, but you need to focus on what you can control and not what you can't. Apologies for the biblical nature of the following quote given the context, but I think it will stand you in good stead:

    “God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things that can be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish one from the other”

    Simon.

    1. What I don't understand is what provokes someone to write a message complaining to someone who you claim to agree with, rather than sending a message to condemn someone for their actions in preventing equality.

      I just cannot understand the thought process to arrive at the position of thinking that that is the most productive use of time.

      Delete
  4. I agree with the writer above. It is not for us to condemn, we are old enough to realise that people have different opinions, and are not to be CONDEMNED for them, but to see the better way.

    If anyone is to be condemned, it is your approach. A true leader and effective politician would have been far more successful, than this ridiculing approach you took.

    As Sen Ozouf has found - you criticised people too much, and pushed people who might have otherwise supported you away.

    You are beginning to do this with voters as well.

    Your way is not the only way, in fact it is the wrong way.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I really astounded by this sort of comment.

    It absolutely right to stand up and condemn others when they preach bigotry.

    Do you honestly think that great movements like the civil rights movement in America would have worked if they didn't call out racism when they saw it?

    Unbelievable.

    Bigotry is to be stood up to, not tolerated.

    "At first they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew..."

    You are part of the problem if you think we should stand by and accept bigoted views without challenge.

    If you had been in the States yesterday, you would have been one of those voting to deny rights to gay people. Shame.

      You're damn right I will decry the perceived right the religious fundamentalists believe they have to insist that the state discriminates against people they consider to be sinners. I deplore that, and anyone with a sense of decency should too.

    3. Just so you know - it isn't just me. I reckon there are probably four different people posting who want SSM but don't agree with your approach. I don't believe, as many others agree - that people are homophobic.

      You have shot yourself in the foot, and now Ozouf looks the heor (probably quite rightly actually).

      You unfortunately stopped behaving like a leader, and just became a replica of a Trotskyist.

    4. Have been accused of being a communist before but this is the first time I've been called a Trotskyist, so thank you for that. I consider it evidence I'm doing something right.

      I can absolutely assure you that homophobes exist. To pretend they don't is just naivity.

  6. The JEP has started its smear campaign against Reform Jersey by singling out Nick Le Cornu on a Tabloid style front page.

    If it looks like a homophobe and smells like a homophobe then it's a homophobe. Good on Reform Jersey for calling a spade a spade this is the sort of politics we need on the Island. Wear the JEP attack like a badge!

  13. I make no apologies for my approach.

    Neither my nor anyone else's approach led to the failure of this attempt.

    This attempt failed because of homophobia and the States Members naive enough to fall for the homophobes more reasonable (but phony) arguments.

    The blame lies at their feet.

    If you are directing your criticism at those that stood up for equality, then you are part of the problem.

  25. All for same sex marriage, but very concerned about the huge maternity leave plan. Problem is we will end up with young women finding it difficult to get jobs. When I worked in Germany, where they HAD huge maternity leave provisions, I was told not to recruit women that I had to gauge whether they would be likely to start a family. Obviously difficult to do.

    Problem will happen here - employers will think twice when faced with two candidates, one of which is a woman who may start a family.

    Not a smart policy in these times.

    2. I agree completely, however when it comes to the ability for a person recruiting, it is impossible to prove someone was denied a job as a result of discrimination. I said this when I was recruiting in Dusseldorf, and everything can be justified without actually saying that it was because they might get pregnant -the company always had a 'valid' other reason. Theoretically what you say is right, in practice however, things happen very differently.

      Like all laws, they get broken one way or another to suit a purpose. How many people speed and never get caught...

So Gorst has kept his enemy close and you have now resided in choosing a potential CM that is a right winger. Hilarious, the Reform Party are even more inconsistent than their voting patterns.

      Of course, I appreciate you won't publish my comments, some sort of attempt at self-justification, but remember you are censoring.

      Delete
    3. Happy to allow the occasional one through, depending on whether I am feeling unkind enough to other readers to subject them to such inanity.

      Gorst was the choice of the left last time because he was up against Bailhache. Had it been a choice between Bailhache and Maclean then, the left would undoubtedly have sided with Maclean.

      It was an anti-Bailhache vote, not a pro-Gorst vote.

      If the contest is either three way, or two way but without Bailhache, the criteria become different.

      Gorst has shown himself over the past three years to be utterly spineless and has called several things very wrong. Gorst's contribution to the electoral reform debate has been utterly pitiful and he took the cowards way out over equal marriage (something Maclean didn't do).

      If it's a choice between Maclean and Gorst, I'd pick Maclean any day.

      That being said, I hope a decent centrist candidate comes forward.

    4. Deputy. You might wish to know that the Pravda letter writer, Jon Dix, is just repeating his history. During the last election campaign his chums at Pravda allowed him to write around a dozen letters attacking the Left - all in as many weeks. All while other people were getting knocked back from having letters published. This suddenly stopped I remember being told after former Deputy Pitman phoned him up about some of his lies and also, so I'm told, challenged the Pravda as to why Dix could rant away while supporters of the Left Progressives were blocked. But to close I must congratulate Reform on getting this new Deputy Le Cocq elected. Phew, I hadn't even seen a bi-election called. or does Dopey Dix know something we don't?

  35. Not once have you criticised Hamas from any records. It is all a anti-Semitic rant that you are pursuing. If you were truly an egalitarian you would demonstrate equal weight to criticising both sides.

    Like your criticism of those who voted (quite rightly) against the equality in marriage, you abhorrently labelled them as homophobic. The irony is loud now if I were to call you racist or anti-Semitic I bet you will take offence. Even though the principle is the same.

    What Hamas is doing, is equal, if not in some cases worse than what the State of Israel is doing.

    1. Scroll down my Twitter and you will see that I have criticised Hamas. The fact you haven't been bothered enough to look for it does not make me anti-semitic.

      If you struggle to find those Tweets, maybe you might have come across others where I have overtly professed my strong admiration for both Ed Miliband and Jesus, who were/ are both Jews. If I'm anti-semitic, I'm pretty damn terrible at it.

      If you go onto the States assembly website and read the hansard from the equal marriage debate, you will not find a single accusation of homophobia laid at another member for their voting record by me (or by Nick Le Cornu for that matter either).

      It's very easy to hide behind anonymity and accuse others of things that you simply are too lazy to discover yourself are completely untrue.

      Since you are wrong on both counts and what you have said is defamatory, would you care to retract it, or at least have the good grace to give your name?

  36. Oh dear, dson't carry on like a Pitman, try and sue - you will only end up in the same boat as them. Except in your case you have Mummy to help you pay your court costs.

    Le Cornu labelled people as homophobic in the States - if this is not the case then why didn't he sue the JEP for printing this (I also heard it whilst listening to the debate). You have written in the JEP and even on your own blog, further you on the same page talked of their homophobia. Whilst Le Cornu made these comments in the States, yours were made outside. I didn't say that they were comments necessarily made in the States Chamber.

    1. This, like everything you've said before, is just a lie.

      If you were listening to the States debate, you weren't listening carefully enough. Nick did not accuse any other States Member of being homophobic. The hansard proves this.

      What both of us have done is referred to the homophobic comments made my the Jersey Evangelical Alliance. I make no apologies for that. What they said was homophobic.

      If you want to defend someone who accuses homosexual relationships as being full of infidelities and insecurities (thereby necessitating that homosexuals are not given equal rights) then you are entitled to be a homophobe too.

      I personally think those views are disgusting and must be challenged.

      Homophobia exists. That is a fact. There is nothing wrong with pointing it out.

  37. To the anonymous comment just now - thank you for that.

    I'm happy to publish your comment but is there any chance that you could resubmit it without the final reference to someone you made at the end? I understand the point you are making, but I know that this person suffers from some health problems and so I tend to give them some leeway and extra tollerance on that basis, so I'd rather that person wasn't put in the spotlight and I suspect they're essentially harmless.

    Cheers.

    New blog up this evening hopefully.
