Most Servants Do! Don't They?

SENATORIAL hopeful Ian Gorst has thrown open the race for Chief Minister by saying he is considering running for the top job if re-elected.
Deputy Gorst, currently the Social Security Minister, made the comments on the hustings platform in St Peter last night.
In response to a question from the floor, he said: ‘I must be honest and say that if I am re-elected I will consider putting my name forward [for Chief Minister].
‘If that does not happen, then of course I would be seeking another ministerial office.’
As things stand, Deputy Gorst’s political ally Senator Ian Le Marquand is the only declared candidate for Chief Minister – although Senator Paul Routier says that he is considering running for the job.
