Good news from home...

In this week's sitting of the States of Jersey, the Island's government voted to send a letter to the UK Government protesting any attack on Iraq without a UN mandate.

"Twenty seven members voted in favour of Deputy Geoff Southern's motion, and seventeen against."

It may not mean much, coming from 45 square miles in the English Channel, but it's my homeland, and I'm proud of them - especially as they are still in the middle of a nasty set of financial negotiations over their offshore banking and aren't getting much support from the UK...

(Also this is to note that the new BBC Jersey site is a much better source of island information than the Jersey Evening Post's This Is Jersey...)
