Lord Reginald's New Year's Message (2017)



Lord Reginald Hamilton Rawley Tooting-Jones III


In the interest of balance, VFC has invited Lord Reginald Hamilton Rawley Tooting-Jones III, (Jersey Conservative Party Chairman)
to deliver a special New Year's address.

As Party Chairman, he explains how it has actually been an excellent year for the Jersey government.  Despite a year filled with dozens of examples of incompetence, broken promises, U-turns, flip-flopping, giving the public's money to amateur con-men and giving away public land for the benefit of rich financiers, all against the public's wishes, not one of them has had to resign, let alone apologise. Like all good Jersey Tories, they remain arrogant and unaccountable, even in the face of numerous failures which would have seen governments elsewhere fall.

So, Lord Reg's message to you all is, don't worry your little heads about politics. Keep watching Strictly, X-Factor and the soaps. It could be worse: you could live in Albert Square.


On behalf of Lord Reg and Team Voice, Happy New Year!

  1. Great to see Lord Reginald back in action. We missed him. Hope he stands for election in 2018. We need more of the same...

  2. Good parody! Jersey needs more of this. Of course, the truth is that is has been a shocking year for Gorst and his government. The sooner the election comes the better. Let's clear out the old guard and replace them with a good Reform Jersey led coalition

  3. Now I know why the constables don't want to loose their seats if declared insane. Happy New year Lord Reginald!

    I know that Lord Reginald is bankrupt but he really should stand for election. As a Constable obviously. They are the only ones who can be bankrupt, mad and I'm told still bugger little boys.

    Wonder why they don't want the rules changed so they are bound the same as Senators and Deputies? Best wishes for the New Year Lord Reginald. A voice of truth in a dishonest political world.

    No pressure but if you do stand for Constable can you please do so here in St Peter? Our present one is pants. Though to be fair not as bad as out Deputy.

  5. Don't get angry, Reggie. Things can only get better. At least they would if most of us stopped moaning about this COM and got up off our butt to vote. Only 17 months to the election. Jersey Awake! Smell the rotten coffee!

  6. Good video. We need more fun in politics. Apart from Lord Reginald there is only the Bailiff in his comedy crimson Horse blanket.

  7. Haven't laughed so much since Ozouf told us we really needed a new financial district.

  8. Best wishes for 2017 to all at VFC and Lord Reg.

    For me the biggest chuckle since Sean Power lost his seat at the 2014 election.

  9. Who would like to make a prediction on the outcome of the next election results?
    Same old, old and new, or totally new? Could be a disappointing, an interesting, or a very exciting two years ahead. Happy New Year and keep up the exceptional good work VFC.

    Great stuff. Made me laugh just when I was feeling quite sad and alone. Hope we see more of Lord Reg.

      A spiffingly entertaining video from one of the Jersey Con Party's finest. Perhaps Lord Reg can can back to do a question and answer session sometime?

      As a fellow Con I am always pleased to see our party Grandees speaking out on social issues.

      A very Happy New Year to all.

  13. All the more funny if Lord Reg does next years speech with Deputy Lewis along side him.

    1. Or with Senator MacLean'ed out explaining how the Conservative Party made our island bankrupt with stunning jokes like 0/10 and free-loading 1 1 Ks?

  14. Was his father Lord Reg of Hill St.?
    As an aside has anyone noticed the similarity between Andrew Lewis and Eddy Noel and Derek and Clive ( Peter Cook and Dudley Moore) ?

  16. I love the idea that some of the Constables could be automated! There are a coup,e in their that are worth their salt, but many others are completely interchangeable, unrecognisable and and mute!

  17. Comedy Gold. You should do a best of Lord Reg Compilation sometime.

    1. There is some classic material to go with from the archive so will look to get a compilation together soon.

    2. Brilliant. I do hope you will check with the lay-deeeeees first though? You should also see if you can do a deal (if you are still in touch?) with Trevor Pitman to allow Voice to present a compilation of the old Bald Truth Reviews. Now those were regularly seriously good and often funny as hell too. Might show Trevor how much his input is missed? Many best wishes to you and Rico and your assorted gnomes for 2017.

    3. All but forgotten about them but they were class. Stuff like this makes politics interesting to people who would not usually bother. We need more of it.

    4. Good idea, will look to get a compilation of The Bald Truth Reviews together also.

  18. Best wishes for the New Year. Hopefully this will be the year we finally see the seeds of change start to sprout.

  19. Happy New Year to you and yours, VFC.

    I look forward to another year of high quality groundbreaking journalism, in particular your in depth interviews with good people, who care.

    Very amused by Lord Reginald, by the way, whoever he is.

    1. Thank you for your support. As you will appreciate the true identity of Lord Reg is a very closely guarded secret and despite much speculation as to whom it may be his identity must remain hidden. People/readers are welcome to guess or speculate who is behind the persona of Lord Reg but Team Voice is unable to confirm or deny his (or her) identity.

      It could be that this might become one of (if not) the biggest unsolved mysteries of the 21st century.

    2. Ha ha, OK! Sorry for *almost* exposing the identity of Lord Reg earlier!

    3. It is obvious. It is that geezer Susie Pinel ruining Social Security.

    4. No. It is Constable Steve 'Wrong country' Pallet.

      I reckon Lord Reg is that bloke who elected alongside Monty Tadier in St. Brelade - the one who has said and done absolutely nothing since. What the hell is his name? Oh yeah, Truscott I think. Definitely one to boot out come 2018. Useless.

      Delete
    6. Ian Gorst for my money. Same vacant look in the eyes. Could be Alan MacLean I suppose? The lah-de-dah 1950's BBC voice is the same.

      Delete
    7. No enough panstick for Susie Pinel. Reckon Lord Reg might well be an unknown Bailhache brother usually kept out of sight in Sir Phil's basement in case he runs amok.

    8. I think I can blow this discussion wide open with some shock exclusive news. Has anyone for one moment considered that Lord Reg may not actually be a Jersey man at all!

      I know, I know he claims to be but really some of these policies are so crazy even a Guernsey man hell bent on undermining the real Jersey way would not propose them, or would they?????? Ladies and gentleman I give you what I think is the true identity of Lord Reg. He is none other than Al Brouard. Take a look for yourself if you don't believe me. I'd recognize that facial hair anywhere.

      You heard it here first!

  20. Hey Neil - i see this 'sponsored' Facebook post is 'going viral' again. Time for another story about the success of Reform and the public's appetite for information. Or perhaps a piece on how a £10 payment buys you thousands of hits might be more appropriate. And yes, I'm the same person whose comments you wouldn't print about the last 'viral' post. Shame on you.

    1. Indeed, the Lord Reg video has received more than 11,000 views on Facebook so far so is a tenner well spent. As you suggest, it is a good, productive, and resourceful way of spreading a message. Credit to Reform Jersey for exploiting the use of Social Media for such a minimum cost.
