The Jersey Evening Post;
Supporting the Concealment of Child Abuse.
In recent months I – and many other people – have been explaining just how corrupt, ethically bankrupt, ignorant, arrogant – and, essentially, stupid is the Jersey oligarchy.
In essence – the case we have made is that the context – and ultimately, the explanation of – the Jersey child abuse disaster is an intrinsic characteristic of this stagnant regime.
An oligarchy which controls all instruments of power in Jersey – the legilsature, the judiciary, the executive, the civil service – and the local media.
In last night’s post I suggested we conduct an experiment in which we hypothesised just what the approach of the Jersey media would be to the White-wash report.
Essentially, that it would be a whole-sale reproduction of the Jersey establishment spin.
Our hypothesis is a demonstrated fact.
Check out the editorial comment in tonight’s Jersey Evening Post.
Well! – What do you know?
It isn’t on their web site – so I can’t give you the address.
So – for the time being – take my word for it; as well as proving our case, it also provides some Becketian, laugh-out-loud black humour.
I’ll post a response to it tomorrow.
In the meantime – we really have to hope The Rag stops being quite so spineless – and actually places its editorial comment on the web site – where it can be read – and consequently judged – by people around the world.
When you have a newspaper making a leader comment – but is too scared to place it where it can be read by everyone – then you have to say ‘case proven’ – so far as the corrupt alignment of Jersey media with the political establishment is concerned.
Look forward to my analysis tomorrow.
Amongst all this grimness you need to take your humour where you can find it.
