Meet the candidates: Mike Dun

Wednesday 31 August 2016


The idea behind Bailiwick Express's meet the candidates has been for you to get an idea about the person behind the politician.

We asked them to answer a number of very brief questions.

When we contacted the candidates we made it clear the questionnaire was light-hearted and wasn't to be taken too seriously. As you'll see in today's posting some candidates took that a bit more literally than others. Quite why Mike Dun thinks easy to open cheese packaging would improve life in Jersey or why his favourite place in the Island is the "cheese factory" perhaps only he can explain. Anyway, here we go....

What one thing would you do to improve life in Jersey?

Easy to open packaging – especially for cheese.

What’s your favourite place in Jersey?

The cheese farm.

What’s your favourite meal?

Bread and cheese.

What’s your favourite pizza topping?

Cheese.

What’s your favourite drink?

Ginger beer and milk.

What’s your favourite song?

Once I was a Millionaire.

What’s your favourite book?

Common Sense – Thomas Paine.

What’s your favourite film?

Cabaret.

If you were an animal what would you be?

Stuffed.

Who would you like to be stuck in a lift with, and why?

Mr Otis – he invented the thing [the elevator].

Who would you hate to be stuck in a lift with, and why?

Peter Sellars – because in the Pink Panther he farts in the lift (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TtZgs8k8dU).

Who would you vote for in this election if you couldn’t vote for yourself?

Tony Benn.

Thursday - Christian May.
