‘Weak leadership’ is to blame for States failure
Tuesday 19th February 2013, 1:00PM GMT.
MAJOR failures in the States are the fault of ‘weak political leadership’, Housing minister Dave Jones told Chamber of Commerce members yesterday.
Deputy Jones, pictured, said it was for this reason that ministers were paid the ‘princely sum’ of £46,000 each year to get it right.
Addressing a packed lunch, he said: ‘Being a minister is about taking responsibility for the running of your department and the services that department delivers.
‘If the department is failing the public, then is not the fault of the civil servants or the public or your PR company, if you have one. It is the fault of weak political leadership.’
