BALD TRUTH REVIEW 15: LESSONS FROM THE BY ELECTIONS
A short video outlining my thoughts on what we can take from the by-election success of Leftist candidates and now new Deputies Sam Mezec and Nick Le Cornu. Does this signify a new appetite for political change across the Island, or is it more complex than that?
And what does the dismal failure of the Establishment candidates to grab two Leftist seats - seats formerly occupied by myself and Shona Pitman of course and never lost at the ballot box but rather due to Michael Birt's corrupt judiciary - mean for the future of the Old Boys. Club?
Finally, and surely of equal importance what does the by-election victories for the Left really mean viewed in the wider context of renewed talk of trying to establish party politics in the Island?
Ten minutes of your time well spent even if I say so myself!
