DB I take your point that the importance of issues is subjective and in hindsight another Sunday Trading debate was probably a waste of time - it certainly didn't achieve anything....apart from the promise of yet another one! As a former States member though, you of all people should know there is finite time to debate issues. We can't expect the States to just drop everything every time a fringe issue petition turns up at the door. We are at a critical stage in this island, both economically and socially. The States have major issues to discuss and major problems to resolve. Adding a myriad of minor issues to this workload is quite frankly small minded and foolish.
