'The cemetery committee decided yesterday to agree to submitting a revised regulation to a Parish Assembly to permit black natural stone in the cemetery.'
The news came as a relief to Mr Michel, who has been fighting for this for over a year now.
The decision to change the regulation was predictable, in the face of such strong public support for Mr Michel's cause. Two questions remain, however, (i) why did it take so long for Mr Jackson to change his mind; and (ii) what damage has this done to the Constable's credibility in an election year?
These questions will be addressed in the next blog, with exclusive video footage from the Communicare meeting.
