SENATOR PHILIP OZOUF - THE REAL VOTE OF (NO) CONFIDENCE COMES IN OCTOBER



SENATOR PHILIP OZOUF - CAN HE PULL A MIRACLE
OUT THE HAT AND GET RE-ELECTED?
(LEAST WE FORGET)

THE RISING OF GST FROM 3% TO 5% 

THE BILL OGLEY DEPARTURE 

THE DAVID FLOWERS DEPARTURE 

THE AUDITOR GENERAL DEPARTURE

THE LIME GROVE FIASCO

THE POST OFFICE (RBC) FIASCO 

THE MOVING OF MONEY FROM THE "CCOF" TO PURCHASE PLÉMONT

THE 2014 BUDGET FIASCO????

EVEN THE UN DEMOCRATIC OPTION "B" AT THE LAST ELECTION DESERVES A MENTION 









"SENATOR - PHILIP FRANCIS CYRIL OZOUF"






"THE MINISTER FOR TREASURY AND RESOURCES"



"FIRST ELECTED TO THE STATES OF JERSEY ON THE 9TH DECEMBER 1999 AS A DEPUTY OF ST. HELIER NO.3 DISTRICT"



"SENATOR OZOUF WILL SURVIVE THE VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE AGAINST HIM IN THE STATES OF JERSEY"



"I PERSONALLY DON'T BELIEVE HE WILL SURVIVE A VOTE OF (NO) CONFIDENCE FROM THE ELECTORATE"



Senator Ozouf knows the real battle is at the October election. Unless he can pull a miracle out the hat he is gone. He is the linchpin of the old guard Establishment.  Some say he is the Jersey Machiavelli. I say he is the bright light that the establishment moths fly towards when not having a clue what button to push on every vote in the states. He is a grafter. He is the one who will stay up late at night pinging out emails securing votes on close debates.  A little chat just by the tea room - a phone call - a little promise here and there - this is how politics works and Senator Ozouf is very good at it.  I don't think he can even slip in 8th. How does he regain votes?




Next week in the States of Jersey, Senator Philip Ozouf will face a vote of no confidence which has been lodged by Deputy Geoff Southern.  This has been  signed by Deputy Tadier - Deputy Mezec and Senator Breckon. 

 THIS WILL FAIL.

The Ministers and the Constables will back Senator Ozouf. Not because they think Deputy Southern is wrong in what he is saying but simply because it's Deputy Southern and it's right next to an election. The only good thing about this vote of no confidence is that a lot of issues can get aired. Senator Ozouf will easily survive this. I know it, he knows it and the vast majority of the States know it.  When does Deputy Southern ever get propositions past? He can often win the debate but not the vote. If Deputy Southern and others make their case then the chamber should vote accordingly but lets all be honest here - it's not how the States of Jersey works.



 Senator Ozouf has been a states member for 13 years - he has risen through the ranks to become the Minister for Treasury and Resources - a position he has held  since 2008.  Has the Senator run his course? Where does he go next? If he was to get re-elected, and that is a big if, will he attempt a third term as treasury minister? Is it not time for new blood at the top of the ministerial tree? These are the questions that must be looked at. I don't believe it's possible for Senator Ozouf to become Chief Minister. Yes, the States of Jersey can produce the ridiculous on numerous occasions, but Chief Minister? That would be a step into total Narnia. 


It would be unfair to say that Senator Ozouf has cocked everything up in Jersey or to lay the blame for everything at his door however one can be rest assured that he is not far away from every big decision that has affected the populace of Jersey. His popularity was strong when he first ran for election in 1999. Being the son of a former Constable of St Saviour he had a good knowledge of the election process. This proved so when he topped the poll in 1999 with 1,618 votes. In 2002 Deputy Ozouf became a Senator, topping the poll with 14,442 votes. The slide started when he went for re-election in 2008 when he came in 5th with 8,712 votes.


He has a problem.


The Senator has been shipping votes since topping the poll in 2002 with 14,442 votes. 


In 2008 Senator Ozouf was re-elected in 5th position with 8,712 votes 


A lot has gone on since 2008. Can the Senator regain votes instead of shipping them? This is the big question. He has been Treasury Minister since 2008. With this big position comes the big decisions. This makes you a bigger target come election time than say a Senator Routier or a Senator Farnham. With the amount of bombs that have been going off around Senator Ozouf these past 6 years you wouldn't be surprised if there was an exclusion zone around his office in Cyril Le Marquand house. The Jersey Evening Post seem to be turning the screw on Senator Ozouf.  Has his race been run? 



 I could see Philip as a Foreign Affairs Minister if he was to re-elected . He is young, articulate, speaks fluent French and German.  All the attributes that one requires for the job. On a personal level I like talking to Philip Ozouf when the chance arises. Although we are miles apart in our beliefs I have always found him willing to engage and prove that he is right.  Senator Ozouf has done some very good things for Jersey and some not very good things - that is the minefield of politics. I believe that his conservative beliefs and the conservative nature of Jersey is going to be the death of this Island  unless some genuine consensus can be achieved. I'm not sure that this can be achieved with the current ministers. The referendum showed up their real agenda.


Senator Ozouf has voted many times and on many different issues during his political career in the States of Jersey but the ones that disgust me most are the ones concerning the CHILD ABUSE INVESTIGATION AND THE COMMITTEE OF ENQUIRY INTO DECADES LONG ABUSE IN THE JERSEY CARE SYSTEM. 


When he had the chance to stand up and be counted he went missing -  then he really did go missing as will be explained now.


When  the Committee of Enquiry proposition was debated in the States of Jersey on the 1st and 2nd of March 2011 Senator Ozouf voted against all  amendments and the main proposition. No matter what excuse he might have for doing this in my eyes there  is no excuse. For me it's like the ones who had a chance to do something when the abuse was happening and did nothing. Life gives you chance to do something right you must do accept this when the chance arrises. 


 Senator Ozouf was given a chance to redeem his previous decisions concerning the Committee of Enquiry. On the 6th March 2013 the Committee of Enquiry came back to the States of Jersey. This was for the new states members to rubber stamp it and give it the green light. This can be read here:





 What I find quite remarkable was that Senator Ozouf nor Senator Bailhace were present for the vote. They were in the States Chamber all morning as the new Police Station debate was taking place. A proposition about Child Abuse and they were absent.  Were they toasting the new Police Station Champagne? 


History has recorded the ones who have voted with a moral and social conscience  - there is no escaping that fact. 


What next for Senator Ozouf?

Recently Youtube has received complaints which are now subject to appeal and as a result have removed two recordings of Mr J.S Haworth explaining amongst other things the destroying of my wife's career.  In my quest for the truth it is imperative that these recordings remain online.

The recordings are also back in the original blog postings which can be viewed HERE and HERE.

Part 6 will be up midweek.
