The Crown dependency\’s ancient and autonomous parliament, the States of Guernsey, failed six out of six tests of good governance set out by the Wales Audit Office, which was commissioned to conduct the review.
Inspectors found that the island\’s elected chamber had no clear direction, lacked accountability, was unable to address concerns about the conduct of its staff and lacked clear leadership.
The report, which was commissioned by the parliament itself, has led to urgent calls for root and branch reform of the island\’s entire political system.
Only one speculation….what would be the result of such an investigation into the Welsh Assembley….or even the Scottish, Westminster or EU Parliaments?
I certainly think it unlikely that the last two would let invite some outside body to study them in this manner.
