On 12 June 2023, Women in Public Life hosted ‘It doesn’t have to be this way. Making Guernsey politics work better for everyone’ at the Princess Royal Centre for Performing Arts.
It was an important debate on the future of Guernsey politics, with lots of questions and suggestions from the audience, generating numerous ideas for change including:
– asking the Bailiff to be stricter
– a Code of Behaviour for Deputies, not just a Code of Conduct
– filming States meetings
– follow-up training and mentorship for new Deputies
– Citizen’s Assemblies
Numerous ideas to improve Guernsey politics were generated during the panel discussion, by the audience in the foyer and in Jennifer’s presentation.
These brilliant ideas won’t do themselves. If any of them strike a chord with you, feel free to take it forward.
