To my loyal readers.
I’m sorry – but I can’t write much now. I’m more exhausted than I have ever been, and inundated with e-mails, telephone calls and letters.
That’s not a complaint; just a request that you forgive me if I’m unable to get back to everyone. I’m trying to prioritise my responses – but it isn’t easy.
But I should look on the bright side – it’s only 1.20 AM – so I’m getting an early night.
In yesterday’s post, I said I wouldn’t be at the Church service for the victims because I was meeting with some abuse survivors.
I cannot speak for how they feel, but for myself, I always gain great strength and renewed energy from talking with them.
Those of you who are following events in Jersey will know that the Island’s establishment have repeatedly asserted that I never provided them with evidence for my concerns. (Note to Frank: child abuse issues = precautionary principle; i.e., first step is to believe the victims.)
But the Jersey establishment assertion is simply untrue.
As the victims I met with on Tuesday evening and during Wednesday will demonstrate – very soon.
They gave powerful testimony to a film crew who I have put them in touch with.
It was a tremendously difficult and upsetting thing for them to do – but immensely brave – and very necessary.
The survivors wanted me to be present, and as I watched and listened, I had to fight back tears.
Both of sadness and of rage.
What these victims suffered – the abuse – the betrayals – the cover-ups and the concealment – proves the Jersey establishment spin to be the disgusting and festering pack of lies it is.
You can see this for yourselves – soon.
I’m not certain how fast the film crew can turn around this documentary piece – but I fully expect it to be quick.
It will be crucial viewing.
Watch this space – I’ll keep you posted as to the broadcast date & time.
