New Agenda on Sunday. is out! Edition of 13 March 2016

Good morning everyone.

Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.

England 25 Wales 21. England took the Triple Crown at Twickenham yesterday defeating Wales in what was probably the best England performance in this years 6 Nations. The scoreline tends to flatter Wales as they managed to increase their points total by 14 points only when England were reduced to 14 as Dan Cole was sent to the sin bin with just 10 minutes left on the clock. Another of Craig Joubert,'s bizarre decisions. Only France now stand between England and a 2016 Grand Slam.
Late news: England are the Six Nations Champions for 2016 after Scotland win at Murrayfield. Only the match against France remains.

Sir George  Martin

Great talent R I P.
A video of one of his best arrangements (In my opinion) can be viewed in the Video section of New Agenda on Sunday.

Meanwhile, back in Jersey.
The Jersey Evening Post, known locally as the JEP, is reporting that Condor has not been "given two weeks to sort out service".
In fact they have been given two weeks to come up with a "plan to improve their service". This is in addition to all the previous plans, produced with monotonous regularity over the years, to add to the mountain of excuses, reasons, justifications and all the other weasel words used by Condor to vindicate their existence as the only ferry service provider for the Channel Islands, United Kingdom St. Malo (France) routes.
What is staggering is that over the years, the Jersey States have been gullible enough to believe the mitigations trotted out by this wretched company and have accepted their words as plausible thus allowing the company to carry on with pathetic performance and the money grabbing extortion of their customers.
In fact, it is so staggering that people may wonder if there is some covert agenda lurking in the background.

Following on from the hailstorm of last week, we had another downpour on Wednesday. Yes it was bad. I had to use the A35 to Poole .It was "challenging" in the morning and even more so coming back in the afternoon. Today, the sun is shining!
Oh the vagaries of the British "climate".

Have a nice week.
