    Politics Disassembled: Reform and the problems of power

    Politics Disassembled: Reform and the problems of power

    From a strong election performance, which saw 10 party members get into the States, to comprehensively losing the battle for Chief Minister, it's been quite a month for Reform Jersey.

    Reform Jersey now dominates the Scrutiny panels - but doesn't have a single member in the Council of Ministers, despite being the only Party which worked at the election.

    Joining James Filleul on Politics Disassembled this week is Reform's leader, Deputy Sam Mézec.

    Did Reform win the election battle, but lose the war over securing real power?

    Jersey: 10 years of building bridges between Poland and Jersey

    Jersey: 10 years of building bridges between Poland and Jersey

    A decade ago, many Polish nationals were seeking help settling in Jersey... Now, with the pressures of Brexit, the pandemic, and the rising price of living locally, many are returning home, with implications for Jersey's workforce.

    There's also the matter of war in Ukraine - on Poland's doorstep - and the many refugees that need help as a result.

    Needless to say, a lot has changed since Magda Chmielewska became Jersey's Honorary Polish Consul in 2012 - but her enthusiasm for the role and determination to bring Jersey and Poland closer together has never wavered.

    Reflecting on her 10 years' service, she chats cost of living pressures, prejudice, and working together to solve local - and global - crises.

    "The quality of education" at St Sampson's High School "is not good enough" according to a recently released Oftsed report.

    It's a damning indictment of one of Guernsey's schools and the fallout of the report has inevitably raised concerns within the teaching community, the student body, the political sphere and from parents of students.

    So what happens now? How does the situation get fixed?

    Express spoke to the Director of Education, Nick Hynes, and the Principal of the school, Vicky Godley, to find out if St Sampson's High can change, and if so, how...

    Politics Disassembled: Who is the real Kristina Moore?

    Politics Disassembled: Who is the real Kristina Moore?

    The votes have been cast, the main jobs have been filled...Election 2022 is just about to collapse wearily into a deckchair for the summer.

    With the notable exception of St Saviour, where the mysterious 'None of the above' may still cause a shock, the tide of the election has receded - leaving the former incumbent of the Chief Minister's chair high and dry, and Kristina Moore swimming off happily into the sunset.

    But where will she lead Jersey? Who is the real Kristina Moore?

    She says Jersey is now Back on Track, which is presumably A Better Way...but outside of three word slogans, what will it take to Get Kristina Done.

    Can she make the shift from Looking In to Leading? Jersey's new Chief Minister Kristina Moore joins James Filleul for Politics Disassembled.
