Emile Collins looked on in bronze from his plinth as we filmed an interview with Dr. Jonathan Renouf, an Option A spokesman and former member of the Electoral Commission. Emile would have been proud with what was happening and without a doubt he would be voting Option A on the 24th April were he still with us.
In this short video Dr Renouf sets forth his motivation to come back to his island and get involved in the Option A campaign. He appeared as the “surprise” guest speaker for the A-Team at Communicare St Brelade this evening and his “hustings” speech will be available on this blog in due course. We caught Dr Renouf at a Press Conference at midday today in the Town Hall and asked him to explain why he supported Option A. His answers are succinct and persuasive.
" A Referendum like this does not come along often - the chance to define the whole underlying basis of your democracy (is) a once in a lifetime opportunity - what a shame to miss this opportunity to have a say."
"At root its really very simple - if you support Option A, it is because you believe the electoral system should be based on fairness and equality."
