A Brief Illustration of
The Jersey Oligarchy at Work.
Sorry – still haven’t done the lay-person’s guide to the Sharp Report yet.
Look – what the bloody hell do you expect? Reliability or something? I’m a politician for Christ’s sake.
Instead you’ll have to make-do-and-mend with these speculations upon my brilliance.
Or perhaps not.
Consider my last posting:
In that analysis I described just how tediously predictable every move of the Jersey oligarchy was.
Apart – that is – from those occasions when their stupidity exceeded all rational surmising or inference – like some hallucinatory coalescence suddenly assaulting the otherwise rational landscape across which we travel.
I predicted, and explained why, the Jersey oligarchy and its house-journal – the Jersey Evening Post – would do all it could to attack and denigrate Esther Rantzen.
Such is the great good she has done for child protection, her stature, her international repute – her influence – that our spivs – err – sorry – Our Glorious Leaders – would be utterly terrified of her.
Survivors, whistle-blowers and campaigners like me – all can be easily stamped upon by power within Jersey – and depicted to the local population as – choose your epithet – trouble makers, enemies within, communists, anarchists, people who have ‘lost the plot’, threats to society and – oh such damnation! – people who simply aren’t “polite” – etc, etc, etc.
But a person like Esther?
Though she be but a single woman – in the eyes of our oligarchy it is as though Godzilla had risen – dripping and colossal – from the sea at Havre des Pas – mutated by toxic ash – 300 feet tall – and really – really angry.
The Jersey establishment are wide-eyed with terror.
As any thinking person knew they would be. So – yeah – I confess – there was no brilliance or great insight on my part in predicting that Jersey’s only newspaper – as befits the island’s equivalent of a “news” publication by the Burmese junta – would do all it could to depict her as an “enemy of the people”.
Actually, the analogy with state-controlled media is disturbingly accurate. Though – in the Jersey context – the description would, more truly, be ‘media-controlled state’.
Like Pravda in the old Soviet Union – patriotically boasting of record harvests and ever increasing production figures from the tractor factory – or the junta “news” in Burma – the Jersey oligarchy plainly nor longer cares – if it ever did – just how manifestly absurd and obviously wrong it’s assertions will appear to the external – real – world.
That just isn’t the point. All that matters is keeping the indigenous great-unwashed convinced of the essential superiority of their society, their leaders – by extension, themselves; to ‘patriotically’ fuse people together in that toxic verb – so beloved of dictators – “teamwork”.
That the oligarchy’s words and spin are palpably absurd to free-thinking people is irrelevant; just so long as the “target audience” – the local population – believe it – that’s all that matters.
And so it is in Jersey – all pretence at cogency abandoned, as a crack-addict might abandon their dignity.
No matter that those well-noted anarcho-commie journals – The Times and The Daily Telegraph – heap justifiable damnation upon authority in Jersey – as long as the local power-spivs can hunker down in their bunker – hoping they’ll survive all smart-bombs and tactical assault – until the storm has passed over them – they will plough on with what is, by any clear reckoning, a desperate last-stand.
And it is – beyond parody.
Though it required no great divination on my part – I predicted that The Rag would do all it could to attempt to rubbish Esther Rantzen; I predicted that they’d be sufficiently uncertain of their ground to not dare to attack her directly. Instead – as I predicted – they’d use their letters’ page to do their dirty work for them. Printing every ignorantly insular attack upon her – and printing as little as possible in support of her work on behalf of Jersey’s many, many betrayed children.
Strange though it may seem – in the last 20 months I have not bothered writing a letter to The Rag dealing directly with the specifics of my position – notwithstanding so many lying, biased, festering and crazed assaults upon me.
So, finally, I am writing such a letter. I’m prompted to do so by the spectacle of their letters-page propaganda as published on Friday.
The Rag chose to ‘high-light’ three letters – all of which attacked me with the expected ignorance and stupidity.
And two of which – in another example of that hallucinatory absolute degree of stupidity – attacked Esther.
The three letters actually serve as a ‘good’ example of just how the Jersey Child Abuse Disaster was able to happen.
Ignorance, errors, insular and shallow arrogance – and straightforward lies.
All in the name of what a model of perfection Jersey is – and how our qua-paradise is threatened by the anarcho-commie assaults of people like me.
As I said – I’m going to write, for the first time, a detailed response to The Rag’s allegations against me. They almost certainly won’t print it – just as they didn’t print my subsequent response letter to the profoundly disturbing and deeply equivocal and obscure assertions of former magistrate – and election candidate – Ian Le Marquand.
The man who wants to introduce direct political control of the Police Force.
But – let us not be worried about the editorial decisions of The Rag – and the obsolete, ignorant, ethically bankrupt chain-smoking pond-life behind them.
If they don’t print it – I’ll post it here.
But – let no one say I’m not reasonable. Here are the web-site addresses for the three letters I referred to above.
Being merely a run-of-the-mill nerd – and not a computer nerd – I don’t know how to place these addresses as active hyper-links within the post – so you’ll have to select and copy them – and paste them into your browser.
Have a good read of these three missives.
As I said – it will be a good illustration of the culture of insularity, ignorance, errors and out-right lies which underpins the Jersey Child Abuse Disaster.
Look out for my detailed response – on this site – if The Rag refuses to print it.
In the mean time – let us ponder the stark contrast between meaningful and honest public discourse – and the comically obsolete kind of opinion management we observe as peddled by Jersey’s oligarchy.
Watch this space.
