Just a brief post.
The Jersey care leavers had a good meeting in the House of Commons. A wide range of interested and supportive people came along.
The care leavers from Jersey have been very brave, and it has been great to see them growing in confidence.
I’ve spoken to MPs, as well as speaking at the meeting. I told them that unless Jack Straw gets taken to court in London, the Jersey establishment will win.
Sadly, more news of Jersey coruption reaches me tonight. Jersey Attorney General, William Bailhache, has obstructed the States of Jersey Police in charging two suspects. I think you’re going to hear a lot about this in the coming days. You just couldn’t make it up.
And Jack Straw and his civil servants carry on asserting – in a pack of lies – that they ‘have no power to act – but even if they did, there is no need, as the Jersey system is working just fine.’
Well – I look forward to the inevitable media headlines – ‘Labour government supports cover-up of child abuse in Jersey’.
For that is what Straw & Co. are doing.
The war goes on.
