Alderney – Ultimate in Small Government

Here is my second article on Alderney after two years working for their government. My experience offers lessons for Jersey . How the Island has adapted to living within limited resources and how its people have developed the resilience to cope with adversity. And for Guernsey, under whose stewardship the Island is just about holding its own due to its people but the Island is slowly dying unless Guernsey provides the financial support and capital investment Alderney needs to help it become more self sufficient .

Guernsey  should reflect on its stewardship of Alderney to ensure the Island’s long term future.  The historic divisions which for so long have reinforced insular jealousies should be put aside by all our politicians. They need to work together more cooperatively on the huge post Brexit challenges which face all Channel Islanders
