Sorry, I just haven’t had time to write a detailed account of today’s forthcoming TV documentary.
In essence, the spin of the Jersey establishment has been to claim that there have been no cover-ups; the any serious incidents of abuse were a long time ago at a long since closed institution.
They also claim that I had provided them with “no evidence”.
Essentially – the line of the Jersey oligarchy is:
“Yes, abuse has happened here – as it does in every community, and we will bring the guilty to justice. But it is untrue to say that there are any fundamental structural failings in Jersey’s system of government and its public administration.
The case exposed in the BBC film tonight destroys that argument.
Systemic cover-ups – concealment – appaling abuse – torture – sexual assault.
All documented in evidence – and most powerfully – the direct testimony of the victims.
Watch the truth.
Tonight – BBC 1 southwest regions. 7.30. ‘Inside-out’.
Sunday – a further program: 12.30, southwest regions part of the ‘Politics Show’.
Please watch – we owe it to the victims.
