Rejected petition Reverse the abuse of our heritage and return the accurate "States of Jersey"
A recent decision by undemocratic people have changed the very nature of Jerseys democracy by deciding that "States of Jersey" should be anglicised to the English “Government of Jersey”. This destroys the heritage and history of our unique history as part of, but separate to England.
