The Privy Council - Jersey's ancient bicameral government option...

Click on image to reveal eight hundred years of Jersey's existing bicameral government in operation!

And we already have the Westminster Parliament, all the UK Government Departments and institutions, the EU, The Council of Europe, the UN and the High Courts of the UK and the European Court of Human Rights to appeal to in order to check our legislation and any defects in the Jersey administration.

So why on earth do some people want another States Chamber to carry out scrutiny that already takes place? If Jersey was to become "independent" - what would happen to all these existing safeguards?

Answers on a history theme please...
