WRITTEN FROM THE INSIDE.

A COVERT MESSAGE

SNEAKED OUT TO THE FREE WORLD.

(Nah – only kidding.)

Really sorry, dear readers, for the silence on these pages; I’ve been cuffed n’ stuffed by the forces of darkness – and have had to spend days undergoing interrogation, sensory deprivation, psychological torture and water boarding. OK – I made that last one up – but it oh so easily could come to pass.

So many worried people have left comments, sent me e-mails and left telephone messages – asking, ‘are you OK, Stuart? Have they had you in the slammer? Have they threatened you into silence?’

Oh so many people – with a disturbingly accurate take on the true nature of power in Jersey.

Since I last blogged – it seems like years ago – I’ve been put through the ringer – and no mistake.

Cross-examination, duplicitous interrogation, deliberately misleading information fed to me, cross and double-cross, scheming, plots and dummy moves – all designed to sow the seeds of confusion, doubt and chaos.

Actually – it was the build-up to the States assembly electing the Ministers who will form the cabinet for the next three years.

But look – it felt like torture, OK?

Phone calls from politicians X & Y & Z – saying they were – then were not – then were again – and then not again – seeking this – or that position. Or they were supporting A or B politician – but only if they were offered an Assistant Minister post by said individuals – but even then intended to secretly vote for someone else.

Day – and night. Changing from hour to hour – just when you thought you were orientated – when they had lulled you into a false sense of security – suddenly everyone’s’ position would shift again; is it day? Is it night? Who do I trust? Everyone? No one? When will it all end?

This psychological torture culminated today – in me having to undergo the appalling ordeal of being a candidate for the position of Home Affairs Minister – with an hour and a half’s notice so my lunch time was spent vaguely trying to think of something moderately cogent to say in my speech, and in answer to the questions.

I pleaded with several other States members to challenge for the post – but after all kinds of wrangling and horse-trading – suddenly – there was no one to challenge Ian Le Marquand.

So faced with the prospect of him becoming Home Affairs Minister – with his appalling attitude to jailing children – and just walking into the position without challenge – I had no choice other than to oppose him.

Actually, to my astonishment, I got 18 votes out of the 53 – having predicted I’d get 8 votes. When contesting these positions, each candidate makes their opening 10 minute speech, and is then questioned for 20 minutes – whilst your opponents wait in a room in the precincts, where they can’t hear what you’ve said; this to avoid an unfair advantage to those who are last to make their pitch.

I didn’t hear, therefore, any of Senator Le Marquand’s speech or his answers – but I’m informed by other members and many of the listening public, that his performance was extraordinarily lame.

I’ll have to check out Hansard once it’s published.

So – there you go.

I could, hypothetically, have suddenly become the politician responsible for policing and law enforcement.

As I said in my introductory speech – when I’m arrested for the – supposed and alleged – breaches of the Official Secrets Act – or whatever the nonsense is – I promise I won’t issues a Ministerial order to let me go.

No – I would just have got one of my esteemed colleagues to go and have private, secret meeting with Attorney General Bill Bailhache – and bingo! I’d be free!

Err – well, maybe not – in my particular case.

But you get the idea.

I have to say, It’s very touching to get so many messages – enquiring after my welfare – and asking me to hurry up and write some more of “this vile blog” (c. Frank Walker).

But contrary to the oligarchy propaganda – generating these effusions is something I only do in spare time. And as explained – things have been somewhat chaotic and demanding this last week or so.

So thanks for your support – and don’t worry about me. I’ll only be silenced when the Jersey oligarchy have me sleeping with the fishes.

Which could be tomorrow night.

Only joking.

(I hope)

Stuart

    You’ll get even more support than that when more people wake up to the truth.

    No careful hypothesis this, but I suggest that the new house will have a leftist leaning minority of 20 – I have deduced this from past behaviour – usually about 13 voting against Toryite policy, with the new blood and a good wind blowing from the East I am raising that 13 minority to 20!

    Changing the topic slightly.Sark, well what a turn up – the gallant Barclay Brothers challenge the feudal system in the ECHR and bring democracy to Sark, they then dictate through their very own newspaper The Brechou Times who the people should vote for and lowhen then desired democratic vote does not go their way, they spit the dummy and close their businesses ovenight……ah well thats Oligarch democracy for you!

    Carrie let me explain where I am coming from. Stuart Syvret Simon Bellwood Lenny Harper and Grahame Power have all lost there jobs for trying to bring the abuse victims some justice. The whole island are asking where are the abuse victims in all this? why aren’t they sticking up for any of these men why are the abuse victims so quiet? The Oligarchy employ Warcup Gradwell and a fu++en tooth fairy to completely rubbish all the work done by these truly couragous individuals and lo and behold up pop the abuse victims singing the praises of these lot. I am only telliing you what people on the street are saying. It looks like you have kicked the very people who have sacrificed everything for the abuse suvivors in the teeth. I nstead or aswell as praising warcup gradwell and the tooth fairy you might just say something publicly positive about the very people who have sacrificed so much for you.

    The Extraordinary Events in Sark

    Yes – a message of support has already been expressed to the people of Sark by the States of Jersey this morning.

    This follows the bizarre spectacle of the people of Sark voting for “the wrong people” – to the obvious displeasure of the billionaire Barclay brothers – and then waking up in the morning to discover that a range of Sark businesses, owned by the Barclays, have been closed overnight – throwing 150 people into immediate unemployment.

    What the hell did the Barclays think there were doing?

    Who on Earth advised them in this matter?

    I always imagined they’d get their sought-after constitutional reforms through eventually – but recognised it would take them a few more years.

    Boy – have they ever blown that?

    By spitting the dummy in this absurd manner they’ve let the mask slip – and shown their true faces.

    Consequently – what support they did have will now vanish.

    In a few more years – they might, gradually, have earned the trust & support of the community – but that prospect is toast now – and no mistake.

    I always thought that Sark did, in fact, have to embrace some modern concepts – like democracy, you know?

    But it is now absolutely clear that the Barclays’ objective was to overthrow the traditional feudalism – and merely supplant it with capitalist feudalism – with them in control.

    I really did wonder whether I was listening to some vizier, transported from medieval Persia, speaking on behalf of his potentates, when their lawyer said “THE PEOPLE OF SARK HAVE REAPED WHAT THEY HAVE SOWN!!!”

    Well – the true nature of what was on offer having now been shown – frankly, the people of Sark have gathered a wise harvest. I dread to think how things would have gone had the population allowed themselves to be bribed into obedience.

    Times will be economically hard for the 700 population of the island – but the community will survive and pull through.

    There are worse fates than being poor.

    Mario, you seem like an intelligent man so I will try and make myself clearer. I attended the meeting to try and get more victims and witnesses to come forward. The more evidence we have the better the chances are of getting convictions and if we get convictions against those who were employed by the States of Jersey the better the chances are of Stuart, Simon Lenny, Graham and so forth being vindicated. Is this not what we all want together with justice for all the victims?

    I have been here all along, I have written several entries on Stuarts blog, indeed I have given Simon via Stuarts blog the name of my ex Husband who worked with Lundy in Le Chene and who to my knowledge lost his job for trying to defend the children from abuse. I have spoken with Stuart on a few occasions giving what information I can to try and help so how dare you say that I am kicking these people in the teeth, nothing could be further from the truth!!

    Indecently, I believe that all care leavers were given an invite to the press release but no one seemed to be bothered or perhaps they were too scared and if you look closely at all the press releases of that appeal you will see that I did not utter not one solitary word, indeed I did not know what was going to be said, so perhaps I was stitched up!! But I would do it again if it will help the cause and perhaps if there is a next time I might even give my own thoughts on this whole sorry, farcical affair, but boy would they have some editing to do first!!!

    I am a victim who will never see justice, someone who had their innocence taken away at the age of eight years old, being brutally beaten from the age of four years old, constantly being told that you are a nobody but I am somebody and I am staying here to help fight for the justice of all the victims, both past, present and future. I have five beautiful Grandchildren and God help anyone who would try and hurt them.

    I have just watched `Sun, Sea and Satan’ : Haut de la Garenne, Jersey, An Uncensored Cutting Edge Adult Documentary by Award Winning Film Director Bill Maloney.

    Bill is the presenter as well as the director. He has a powerful and very personal emotional reaction to the Haut de la Garenne allegations. He does not set out to produce hard evidence, so I suspect his film is of limited value in the cause of justice for the victims.

    His approach is, in part, to highlight illustrative details that support the impression that something is just not right on Jersey. One of these in particular I found truly chilling. Several times he shows shots of `ornamental’ statues in the garden of an expensive-looking house, which he demonstrates is little over 2 minutes drive from HDLG. The statues are deeply disturbing. One is of a very young child with an enormous phallus in his/her mouth. This is clearly visible from the road. This is surely an example of 3-dimensional child pornography and almost certainly illegal. Yet the owner is happy to flaunt this at the roadside as if to say, “I am untouchable”. I cannot imagine this happening anywhere in the UK.

    I don’t live on Jersey, so know nothing about the location of these `ornaments’. But, if it is still there, apparently on a busy road, hundreds of people must see it every day, and many of them will know who lives in the house.

    It is a terrifying cameo of how some people feel able to conduct themselves, quite openly.

    These statues are probably copies of statues from antiquity.
    As such they are not viewed as pornographic in the eyes of the law.
    I would not choose to have them in my garden but I doubt that it is illegal.
    A quick look through art books concentrating on Greek or Indian art will quickly find carvings depicting acts that would get you a healthy prison sentence today.

    How sad, it’s Friday night again! You know, it has taken me the best part of 35 yrs to even broach the subject of the physical, physiological and sexual abuse I experienced as a child at the hands of adults in Jersey.

    However, having had some experience of Warcups methods it will take me another 70 yrs before I would feel ready to trust the SOJP (or the honorary scum also)!

    Oh, they were all so well connected, drove the right cars or, knew the right people/copper/s (honorary or otherwise).

    I suspect that the majority of people who have been violated as children in jersey know exactly what I am talking about. I remember Jeff le M, taking me to meet his mates ( I was 13/14 yrs old) . Oh so middle class. Ever so Jersey! Even whilst raping mem (or trying to) they kept the plumb in the gob!

    Andy Baker (Paisnel) if he were alive could tell you what went on. But even here on this site the subject is taboo!

    I like many, other’s on this god forsaken rock knew Paisnel, Tillbrook, Wateridge, Jeff le Marquand etc, etc. There are many others too! Who, because they are dead(like the Very Rev Peter Manton member of the STATES OF JERSEY who, Like many other establishement figures, enjoyed raping 12-14 year old girls) who can not be brought to trial.

    Chin up, when its all over and everybody can sleep soundly at night we can always turn ( or should that be return) to our nightmares!

    I often wondered why Le Herrisier did not go further? He seemed to be on the edge of denouncing the SoJ for what it was and, then he stopped?

    If he reads this blog, may I ask what happened??

    It is clear in his M.A thesis that he wanted to say more! Read it if you will. Its worth it from an historical perspective!

    Oh yes, as a child who was a bused whilst in the care of SoJ, I have followed local politics all of my like and, have preyed to god many times for someone like Stuart!

    Dear Stuart

    Stepping back from the wilderness, or is the wilderness coming to you?

    In the last two days you have received 18 then 19 votes from the assembly.

    Do you think that enough are beginning to realise that the island needs someone with the intelligence and power of oratory that only you seem to be able to offer?

    Are we at last beginning to see a constructive and coherent opposition to the baaing sheeple herd that follow the oligarchy into their Alice in Wonderland existence of unreality?

    Oh please for the good of those without a voice make it so.

    Listening to the shockingly poor content of the states debate over the past two days, I despair and dread the next three years. Jersey truly does not believe in a meritocracy, this is unfortunate, because we really are going to need talent and intelligence to see us through some difficult times.

    From my perception of the speeches and contributions over the past few days I think we would have been been better placed to face the next three years with the following:

    Chief Minister – Alan Breckon

    Economic and development – Mike Higgins

    Home Affairs – Stuart Syvret

    Education – Roy Le Herissier

    H&SS – Paul Routier

    Housing – (not Terry Le Main)- hopefully if Breckon had got the top job someone else would have stood??

    Not a complete sweep but definitely a more inclusive ‘people’s parliament’ than that we will have to endure for the next three years. (that’s if we survive it!!)

    Just some thoughts from a despairing voter who did not want the current encumbents .

Thus in the eyes of the public are giving them credability and spitting in the face of Senator syvret simon bellwood david warcup grahame power and lenny harper. These are the people who have fought for the jersey care leavers and lost there jobs for it. The first public appearence we see of jcla is of them supporting the people who are shafting them. Why if you have faith in lenny harper stuart etc. don’t you publicly say so? I have spoken with some care leavers who strongly disagree with what you and erin are doing and are not speaking for them. You have very poor leadership and when you are shafted by the tooth fairy et al who are you going to turn to?

    I can’t believe that our States members voted for someone who has such a low academic record as Senator Perchard.
    Despite an excellent private education, he has failed to gain any meaningful academic qualifications whatsoever – not even at O-level (GCSE) standard.
    I find it worrying that the minister’s literacy skills are so low especially with regard to reading, punctuation and spelling that a family member was drafted in to write his speech and help with his letter writing when he stood for Deputy in St. Martin.

    The worrying aspect of this is that it is likely that Senator Perchard will become so heavily reliant on his civil servants to write speeches, responses to questions in the chamber and letters that his role will be reduced to nothing more than a mere mouthpiece.

    Mario, I think it is you who is missing the point and, as I have said previously, the only way we can move forward is through the correct channels and that means going to the police whether you trust them or not and I most certainly do not trust the new additions especially after the way they have treated Lenny Harper and Graham Power, but we must get more people coming forward to add weight to our cause and if that means playing them at their own game, so be it.

    Thank you for the compliment, but I am not a leader, only a follower trying to do the right thing, oh and by the way, I do agree with one of the things you are accusing me of, yes I would spit in the face of David Warcup if I were not a lady.

    In response to your question about talking out publicly, for legal reasons, most of the victims have been told not to go public about anything to do with the ongoing abuse investigation as this could jeopardise their case and quite rightly, they are keeping quiet, for now anyway!!!!

    Just a thought – some of the abuse survivours may have forgotten names as different personalities cope with abuse different ways. Some block it out and try to prentend it did not happen, and in doing so names have been forgotten, wrapped up in a box so to speak. The difficulty they now face is even when they want to come forward, how can they say who did what to them. Perhaps when and if the charges are brought against these people, the names may come back to these victims and then they too can come forward.

    That statue at Gorey is all about perception,

    If the owner was ‘straight’ how would you evaluate the statue?

    You don’t have to be a homosexual to be a child abuser you foolish person.

    many straight men abuse young boys out of envy and not lust alone.

    It looks like the statue is used as a message system one day it’s a girl with pig tails the next it is a boy with baseball cap.

    Any person who has such a statue of a child doing what those statutes are doing needs their collar felt and put in prison as it is perverse and homosexual or heterosexual

    Can anyone confirm whether the story of Bill Maloney (maker of “Sun Sea and Satan”) having been murdered in New York is true or not?

    This story is reported here but I have seen no other reports.

    Also there is a posting, seemingly from Bill, made yesterday here.

    So is the murder story a hoax?

    I can’t believe some people! A statue of child doing that although its not child abuse in it’s self, nevertheless it does send out a strange message does it not?

    And perhaps this message is what it’s all about!!!

    Maybe this is the Jersey way!!! Or is it the way of some in Jersey???

    Yes the fact that the owner of the house is a “Nice Man” actually means something to you and any others like you who think its ok to have such a deplorable figurine displayed anywhere let alone out in public where other children may come across it.

    I suppose this is what is acceptable in the “Jersey Way. Shame on you and those who have not went to this place and destroyed the status…

    Mario Bundy,

    You would do as well as to not leave your condescending, patronising, blatantly inaccurate statements on this blog. They do not make for pleasant reading.

    Perhaps you ought to re-read the statements you have made and imagine that they are aimed and addressed to you, imagine how that would make you feel. (this is what is known as being empathetic)

    You make Carrie out to be some kind of idiot who’s doing what she is for the attention or the fun of it. You have got it so very wrong.

    You don’t strike me as a particularly intelligent person. Or a very nice one either. I can’t deny you your right to comment, as God gave you freedom of speech, but be careful about what you say and how you state things.

    If you knew Carrie personally I am certain you would not be (as I perceive you to be,) attacking her over her actions. I can say this because I know that she has done what she has because she feels it is the right thing to do by all. It has not been easy and she has not enjoyed it.

    Your narrow mindedness and poison tongue have sent yet more ripples of hurt and anguish to my family. Please do not continue to dig yourself a hole by way of taking digs at my mother.

    When you reply to this message take your mask off and tell me who you really are. I want a word with you.

    My name is Ammaelliah Dannielle Foott and I am proud to call Carrie Modral my mother.

    It would be nice if the Jersey care leavers group would speak up in support of Stuart and Lenny Harper. As previous posters have commented the JCL appear to have sided with those who seem to be trying to wind down the investigations.

    “indeed I did not know what was going to be said, so perhaps I was stitched up!”

    I think you were.

    Statues.

    Rather than casting aspertions here, if anyone believes there is something offensive on display call the police and complain. It’s easy to do and once a complaint is lodged in the system some form of action will have to be taken.
    If the police say it’s alright well then, lets concentrate on more important subjects.

    I would suggest that anyone who is offended by this statue writes to the relevant Constable.
    He may decide to have a word with the owner and it will be moved to a place that is out of the public view.
    As far as I know the owner has not commited an offence so locking him up is out of the question.

    Jersey police!!! “easy to do and once a complaint is lodged in the system some form of action will have to be taken.”

    Some has completely failed to take any notice as to what has been going on the island of Jersey.

    Tell the police and you will hounded and threatened and made to feel an outsider in your own community you mean.

    People have been telling the police on Jersey for decades and perves that were allowed to work within the police were hiding it and even still abusing children themselves after being welcomed to being a police officer even when those in higher positions knew that they were paedophiles.

    Who you trying to kid???

    The victims and survivors of the abuses of jersey have no faith in any police or civil servant employed and coached by the establishment.

    I am not standing up for the ‘Jersey Way’.
    I am expressing my opinion as to the probable legality of possessing and displaying the statues.
    That has nothing to do with my own personal views on the subject.
    In my opinion the law in the UK is more liberal with regard to the display of nudity and sexual acts than Jersey and the display of the statues would be legal in the UK.
    As I said in my previous post, if you are offended complain to the Constable.
    If he is not aware of the situation he will have to investigate and arrive at an opinion.

    Ammellia and Carrie this is the last time i will post and can not reveal my indentity. I will make a couple of points to you. Carrie you have said you do not trust the new investigation team and do not believe you will see justice through them yet you go all over the local media asking victims to come forward. What do you think those victims will think of you when they don’t get justice? You haven’t seemed to be able to grasp i am on your side i want you to get justice and from behind the scenes am doing everything i can to make sure you get justice. I am in a position to help get you that justice which is why i can’t reveal my indentity. If you want my opinion you are being played big time. If you want some advice take to the streets in a peaceful protest and involve the national and international media. You must believe me i am on your side and only want to see you get justice. The route you are currently taking will not get you that justice. I wish you all the luck in the world and will do what i can for you.

    You are right to be proud of your mother.She is amazing! Carrie has always supported Lenny Harper and Stuart. She, like the rest of us care leavers has had no choice in the change of leadership in the Jersey Police but we still hope and pray for justice. We are not at liberty to talk about our experiences to anyone (even to each other) as we are witnesses and victims and what keeps us going is the hope of our day in court.

    I still feel greatly supported by Lenny Harper and by Stuart – this blog keeps me hanging on in there! I also feel supported by Zoompad, Carrie, Krakov Crapaud and all the other people who believe in us.

    All the same I really do want to appeal to anyone who is reading this blog who has evidence and has not come forward yet. Don’t be afraid to call the Historic Abuse Team. It is run by the same officers who worked with Lenny and they will listen to you and treat you with respect. For the sake of the rest of us please do it now!

    this is why so much mud has been slung into the water of the historic abuse case.
    It is this reason that there are now people making up things and taking away the focus on the true victims.

    The statue,

    I think the statue is important in the fact that it, & supporting comments, give the impression that displaying an image of a young girl giving a blow job is perfectly acceptable in Jersey, also that dependending on who the owner is it’s not important whether or not it’s illegal.

    Dismissing people who think there is something wrong with laughing in the face of all those who were sexually abused as children, as homophobic, is beyond contempt.

    According to Pink News: “Senator Philip Ozouf, Jersey’s Minister for Economic Development, is the island’s only openly gay politician.”

    Nobody in Jersey seems to have a problem with his sexuality only his politics. So what happens now if you disagree with Minister Ozouf?

    Does that also label you as homophobic?

    I second that statement. I had been giving the police information on my ex-partner over a period of years. They lost my file.
    Witnesses have told me that the girlfriend after me also endured his violence, just like the women who came before me.
    Its not just child abuse, elder abuse,vulnerable people abuse, domestic violence, stalking, bullying in the work place….its all rife on this island because it is the Jersey Way not to tackle it and to hide it under the carpet.
    Similarly it is not the Jersey Way to speak out about it, because you fear that your job is on the line or your family will be threatened further or you won’t get that planning permission or your child into the school of your choice. The fate of whistle blowers is proof of that fact.

    Please tell me where I said it was OK to display offending statues becuase the owner gives to charity. I have read and re read my post and as far as I can see, I was merely pointing out in case any of the readers were pensioners and were unaware where their cheques came from, in case they wanted to make a moral decision and return it.

    Thank you to those of you who have supported and continue to support my mum and all of the care leavers.

    To clarify, as it currently stands, she will not have her day in court and there has been nothing ‘just’ in the system for her.

    I remind you all that Joan and Richard Bonner, my foster grandparents, were not prosecuted for their vile acts. (remember the circumstances avec Danny (the fence erector) Scaife et al?)

    I remind you that her case was closed and that she was told this was the end of the road where she was concerned. (This is not to say that certain officials didn’t give it all they had, I believe they did)

    And so you see, there is no help that you can give her, other than to continue with your messages of support for her and for others. To admire her courage and steely determination in the face of adversity. For her belief that for others justice will eventually be done and that she will be there for and with you all until the end.

    Morale is low at this time. As we approach Christmas it may get harder still for some of you. I will have you all in my thoughts and prayers, as I do everyday.

    For the record, I too am a care leaver and I will say that my time in care was not all bad. In making this statement I ask that all of you reading this recognise that behaviour breeds behaviour. Help to break the cycle- if you are able to, by coming forward and saying what you have to say. You are not alone.

    Love and light to you all,

    I have been following this blog for some time now and occasionally post here.

    I was physically abused from the age of 4 to 8. In that time I was made to watch my sister repeatedly raped by my Mother’s boyfriend. She was 3 years old when this first started. I had to watch as this monster held my Mother by her hair and punch her repeatedly in the face until the monster was standing there with a fistful of her hair in his hand. I was dangled over a 12 storey balcony by my feet, beaten within an inch of my life simply for… I don’t even now what for!

    It took me 25 years, a failed marriage and dozens of failed relationships before I came to terms with what happened to me. 25 years of feeling guilty that I did nothing to help my Sister and my Mum. I hated my Mother for not getting us out of there. As I understand it now, she was terrified, and believed that the monster would kill all of us if we spoke out or ran away.

    I eventually got help from a counsellor and my life changed from that point onwards. I has seen two before her and they were rubbish. I was lucky to find a counsellor who knew here stuff and managed to get to the crux of the problem (it’s not always so obvious and when you discover what it is, bingo). Despite my failings in my personal relationships with people (especially men), I have always immersed myself into my work and have in a measured way become successful. My sister became a Police Officer (not SOJP), married for over ten years with two beautiful children. My Mother found a man who adores her and is very happy.

    My point? The person who abused us and almost ruined our lives completely is Philip Polanskie. He has never been punished for what he did and we have never seen justice. But that did not stop us from getting on with our lives. The journey has been incredibly difficult, but we have managed it.

    Seeking justice is not the be all and end all. It will not turn your life around. Only you can do that.
    Don’t rely on the vile corrupt Governments, Councils and police services in your area to do it for you.

    N.B. Our story is in no way unique. We are in no way special. There are thousands of families out there that have gone through the same process.

    Sorry I can see how you thought i meant that.
    When i suggested reporting the statues to the police it was meant more as a test of our system and to cause the statues owner a of grief.
    Obviously I don’t expect anything to come of it but if no-one reports these things officially then the police will say they didn’t know they were there.
    Making a report removes that defence. If the statues stay it’s because they think there is nothing wrong with them.

    Peaceful demonstration idea – as a regular reader of this blog who has never been to Jersey, I would welcome some guidance. IF your peaceful demo gets off the ground, would you want non-islanders who support your cause to be there, or would that just give the oligarchy a PR opportunity to suggest that the demo was mainly outside agitators and lacked local support?

    I am a long way from Jersey but might well make the effort to go if the date was possible for me, but I would respect the wishes of those who know far better than me whether this would be helpful.

    I am so relieved that my parents fell out with part of our family because a particular member did not visit again until I was a teenager. They did not know that I was being molested as an infant and never did find out. My parents were very loving people but very poor and hardworking they had enough to worry about. I guarded my own back from that time on and avoided anyone who I suspected was likely to take advantage of me. I loved my parents and wanted to save them from these facts.

    I know I had a lucky escape and when I approached early teens I met up with him again and he made an advance which I hurriedly escaped from but it left me reeling with panic inside – which I suppressed of course.

    I can’t escape though from the feelings of low self-esteem this left me with for years and to be truthful I still suffer from but I am lucky again because I was fortunate to find a loving husband who knows what happened and is very understanding and helps me through. Isn’t it strange how people who have been molested and abuse time and time again believe it to be there fault. I tell myself time and time again I am NOT AT FAULT AT ALL.

    I only mention this here because I have been following this blog for a few weeks now and although I did not suffer anywhere near the extremes some here did – I can relate to the feelings of anger, depression and isolation you must all feel, especially if you were abused at home and never had a loving family to help take the pain away, which was made worse by the fact that the very people who were paid to look after you abused you in the most horrific way, when you were at your most vulnerable.

    My father was abused by his father, flung from one end of the stable to the next pre-war and had limbs broken. Probably why I never said anything about what happened to me to him because I loved him, (or I was afraid he would murder the offending relative). Father never told me of the abuse he suffered but my mother did. He overcame his difficulties with the love of my mother and was a very wise man indeed. He had dyslexia and could not read. I did not find this out until late in life. He spent five years at war and no one suspected he could not read. He had a lot of anger about his situation as a child but he overcame this with love.

    Please be patient, the truth will out in the end but either way, whatever happens, please be strong and don’t let what has passed destroy you with anger or hate – or the perpetrators will have won. Continue to calmly aim to get justice, make an impression like water slowly dripping on a stone, even granite will succomb.

    From what I can see on here there are a lot of generous and dedicated people trying to do their best for you and who have already sacrificed a lot to bring your plight to the attention of the general public and to the members of our parliament, and to the police. We will eventually find out who are the good ones and who are the bad ones in the uniformed service and the civil service. We are beginning to sift out the badduns aren’t we.

    I am convinced too that there are people working in the background to help you, who have to keep in cognito otherwise their attempts will be in vain.

    Please continue to care and support each other and let the good folk find a way of getting you the justice you deserve.

    I don’t feel confident enough to contact SS by way of his official email address. I know he is trying to get the bigger picture and I might have some small pieces of information I could relay but not sure if they are important or not!

    One piece of information involve an elderly man, who was convicted of sexual assault in his later years, and he and his wife’s early friendship with a high ranking SOJP.

    Stuart, if you will allow me, I’d like to ask your readers a question, this being with your unique readership surpassing 90,000.

    I did a few little ‘online marketing techniques’ a few months back for your blog, without mentioning it to you, and would like to know from readers here;

    How did you find Stuart’s blog

    1)Recommended by another reader

    2)Search engine (if so, can you elaborate which search engine used and if you can remember what keywords you searched with to get here)

    3)Traffic exchange program or similar (I am particularly interested in this area).

    4)Other means not mentioned above (please elaborate if possible)

    I will not respond to each reply, however, I thank everyone in advance who helps in my little survey, which I am undertaking due to looking at doing more ‘Online Marketing’ for Stuart’s Blog in the near future, if the results prove valid enough (Free of charge of course for such a super gentleman!)

    I am particularly interested in readers from USA, Canada, and Europe, but readers in Jersey please tell also, as all info will help me. Many thanks, and best wishes.

    P.S. I KNOW for sure that a lot of the european media most certainly have not given up on Jersey. Please DO arrange a white march, but absolutely ensure that it is peacefull. Another Greece as is happening now would not gain anything, trust me, avoid anger and violence at all costs. Speak out, by all means, but no violence. The media will come from all over, they are still watching and waiting.

    Also, give allowance for time, as some of us Jersey people who would like to take part, and show our support cannot just fly over at a moment’s notice. Thanks.

    Re: Can anyone confirm whether the story of Bill Maloney (maker of “Sun Sea and Satan”) having been murdered in New York is true or not?

    I found some time to do some research for you, and I am happy to say that he has not been killed. It was all part of the movie, as explained here in a review of the film;

    Billy & Lilly go to New York

    When critically acclaimed maverick film director Bill Maloney went to New York to represent his nominated feature film Lunatic at the New York International film festival, he decided because of his grounded working class background that he would bypass the razzmatazz and glitz generated by the festival, in favor of shooting a documentary film about the under privileged and homeless people on the streets of New York.

    Bill had begun his project in London whilst waiting to hear if he had funding from his company to actually make the New York trip. When the budget news finally came it allowed for only two people.

    So Bill Maloney and his camera woman Lilly Starr took to the streets of London and New York with the passionate intention to highlight this plight.

    Bill’s anti establishment attitude and aggressive style of reporting put fear into the hierarchy of our planet.

    Culminating in the killing of Billy and Lilly.

    Thanks for posting a picture of that statue.

    I think it is quite possibly one of the most disgusting images I have ever seen – it is unmistakable what that baby is portrayed as doing, and who the heck would want such a horrible work of art in their garden?

    It looks Grecian to me, which would not surprise me one bit, as the ancient Greeks were well in to that sort of thing, nude wrestling and boy/man “love” ect.

    If I were a pensioner and the guy who owned that piece of porn stonework offered me £100 I would tell him to shove it where the sun doesn’t shine. I wouldn’t want to take any money off the chap who owned that – I’d be worrying how the money had been obtained, for one thing.

    Gnomes, yes – even fishing gnomes from Wilcos. That thing – ugh!

    “I am not standing up for the ‘Jersey Way’.
    I am expressing my opinion as to the probable legality of possessing and displaying the statues.
    That has nothing to do with my own personal views on the subject.”

    Playing devils advocate may have it place but not when the issues at hand are as we all should know are to do with the depiction of your children engaged in acts that children should not be weather on not this is your poinion is not the point the fact that it does appear that some people think there is nothing wrong with it is the problems….

    I am not playing devil’s advocate.
    I am giving my opinion based on what has been viewed as being obscene in the past in the UK.
    If you find the statues offensive then write a letter to the Constable detailing your arguments.
    Copy it to the Vile Rag as well if you like that is bound to get some feathers flying!

    Further to my last post: “Truth will out! Sunday, 14 December 2008 20:39:00 o’clock GMT”

    In answer to the person who was doing a marketing excercise and who wished to find out how we got to this blog. I simply googled Stuart Syvret and found him at the top of the page, where he should be, in my humble opinion.

    I also took the liberty of copying one of the most important pages on this site to BACA Nation in the USA for onwards transmission to their followers. BACA Nation is a group of Bikers who have formed an organisation to save abused children in the USA. In the hope that they would provide help and assistance in spreading the word.

    BACA = BIKERS AGAINST CHILD ABUSE

    To the reader who suggested private prosecution as another way forward. Does that mean you would have to collect funds in order to pay for this? It will not be cheap and where will the money come from? Have the care leavers already started a fund and if so where can donations be made?

    The garden ornament that displays a variety of hat’s on St Martin’s main road is surley just a whimsical bit of fun!

    I enjoy travelling past and seeing what hat is on the statue and what it signifies. I just do not see it as some pornographic display of vulgarity, it brightens my day!

    I make no apologies for that opinion, and it concerns me that people are being demonised.

    The current residents at Charnwood, putting novelty hats on the questionable statue, are Mr G and Mrs J Goguelin (ex directory)

    I agree with Elaine that a gathering/march in Jersey should be publicised in advance to allow those of us Jersey people who live in UK or elsewhere time to organise work, family etc and arrange a trip to Jersey.

    As a survivor of HDLG I think 23rd February (or close) would be the ideal day for us to mark the day when some of our lives were turned upside down and we had to relive a part of our lives long buried.

    Several months on and we are still waiting for something to happen to give us closure. A gathering like this would give us a chance to meet old friends and make new ones.It will also give us a chance to show how we feel for people like Carrie who have been told there is no case to answer! I hope that by the anniversary of that terrible day there will not be more people in her situation!

    Please share with me exactly what it signifies, for I fail to see anything but vulgarity.

    I do so hope you never come home to find your young child with a male phallis forced into its mouth, or do you consider that to be ‘a whimsical bit of fun?’

    I’m sorry, but I have to say you are must have something wrong with you to think a child with a male phallis in its mouth is fun, so long as the hat changes!!? Sick 🙁

    I don’t know enough about the Jersey legal system to say for sure, but it may be possible to receive legal aid in pursuing a private prosecution – It would be worth looking into.

    A whimsical bit of fun? Blimy, if that’s your idea of whimsical fun I wouldn’t like to know what your idea of really going for it is!

    White Collar Crime!

    So some guy in New York has conned billions of dollars out of Joe Public via numerous ‘Top 500’ financial outlets, makes you thankful that we in Jersey are so well regulated and protected from white collar sharks!

    Yes I am being sarcastic!

    Stuart.

    I agree with the previous poster who suggests, the peacful “white march” be held in February. This will be the anniversary of the start of Lenny Harper’s covert investigation.

    It would also give time to organise it properly and advertise it. In order to gauge how much support there would be perhaps you could do a poll to see how many people would be willing or able to take part?

    I hope your poll gets more votes than mine has so far!!!

    Care to comment about this or is this another example of our world class public services

    Re Peter Manton, the sea cadets and, Jersey pedophiles. Other than the case where Manton made an indecent proposition and, was found out. I do not know of any other instance whereby he has figured in such a case.

    However, the information that I have – an account of his rape of a young girl of about 12 – 13 – which was told to me many, many years ago by someone very close to one of his child victims (who is a very good friend of mine also). Combined with the very many whisperings that I have heard over the years with regard to his secret pedophile pastime, leads me to suspect that he was deeply involved in assaulting children at the sea cadets!

    It is clear to anyone with eyes to see that this monster who hid behind his robes of respectability (as many still do) was deeply involved in violating island children. And, although the case may be closed, It is equally clear that children were raped and abused by this monster whist members of the sea cadets. (why should he confide his violation to the church building)?

    I believe that he, along with other well known names either members of the Jersey establishment or close to it were/are part of a much wider pedophile ring which, included/s many well known British celebrities.

    There are a number of reasons why the SoJ have tried so hard to put the lid on this. We all know about the `FAT MAN’, Similarly, we now know about `MANTON’. But, there are others still! Other’s who have committed serious crimes, but, who have to many people guarding their backs in Jersey. Just as the SoJ have done with regard to guarding their bank accounts.

    As a child, after Jeff le Marquand had entrapped me and, fixed my up with other pedophile mates of his, his tongue (Jeffs) got very loose. Feeling secure in his surroundings and boasting to his mates in my presence over a period of time he reeled off many, many names. Names that you will know, and, whom the police have been made aware of (although Warcup has probably torn those up and shredded them with the rest of the evidence).

    One would think (in my case at least) that given that it was many years ago, and in all probability most of these monsters are dead, that the SoJ would not have a problem in aiding the investigation. However, Like Jeff -many of his sick mates were married and, also had children and grandchildren.

    Many of these people now wield the stick of power in the island or are very close to those who do!

    Hence, I don’t think that we will ever have closure. And nah, the sea cadets never happened!!

    I am from Germany and have been following this blog for some time now. I am a “hard-core” internaut that is not moved by a lot, but the heartbreaking selfreflecting reports of their own abuse by survivors here have left me almost in tears.

    All people concerned should unite somehow on an international platform and get their stories out to the world. Elections and party politics in Jersey won’t interest internationally, the plight of the victims will.

    Reviewing the level of british governmental interference in “unpleasant” matters from a distance tells me that only an international public might force an independant inquiry into the whole affair.

    Jersey offers moral support to Sark

    Blooming heck Jersey government have discovered some morals!!! They were found on the street where the poor live as we all know them at the top have great problems distinguishing from moral and immoral.

    and what makes Jersey think Sark want anything from a putrid island where the rich get richer and the poor pay the price, isn’t that what they have just got rid of.

    An island that claims its a democracy and does not have any effective opposition is not a democracy. Their days a numbered…

    The pyramid is crumbling!!!
