  3. Alderney-Southampton being a lifeline route 'ludicrous'

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    A senior Guernsey politician believes the idea of having more than one lifeline link "is frankly ludicrous".

    Deputy Lyndon Trott, Vice President of Policy and Resources, made the comments at an Institute of Directors seminar.

    He told the BBC: "I think it needs one and if I was an Alderney resident I would think don't bite the hand that feeds you... clearly as a consequence the lifeline route for Alderney should be Alderney-Guernsey.

    "[Alderney residents] think there should be two because that's what they've got used to. Frankly make the case and lets have a proper debate on it.

    "All the evidence that I've seen suggests there should be one lifeline route and the others should be designated under some different category whether that's of economic enablement, social importance or whatever the case may be."
