Today I became aware that one of my 3meter Senatorial banners has been ripped off barriers at Green Street Roundabout and stolen.
All that remains are the eyelets and remnants of material.
This is a deliberate political act; it is not simple vandalism.
This is unprecedented criminal damage in a recent public election.
To rip down a banner wired to railings and then take it away is a very conscious act.
I am not entirely surprised; there is are some very rabid right-wingers who regularly express themselves with violent language; it is only a small step to physical violence and criminal damage to property by such types.
The banner cost £180, so I will have to order another.
I will not be intimidated by such provocative acts of violence
I have advised the States of Jersey Police of the theft.
