Spratacus I have been Minister for 9 years and in that time we have addressed vigorously the issue of under occupation and other problems you raised. We have also had a massive new build and refurbishment programme in that time which has improved the social housing stock on this island immeasurably. So I will take no lessons from you as to what I should have been doing in my time at the Housing department. While it is true people can be on the transfer list for years, the desire to move is not the same as the need to move and if you are adequately housed then we will address those on the waiting list as a priority first, rather than those who would like to live somewhere of their choice. I also spoke to Pam and her husband and she clearly understood that point. How on earth is Clos de Barbier under occupied? Finally I don’t need a “fan base”, I do the job to the best of my ability and if and when that ceases to be the case, then I am absolutely convinced the electorate will very quickly dispense with my services and put me out to grass, so until then I will continue to do the job my fellow States members have entrusted to me and my board.
