"Straight Talk From The Jersey Care Leavers"

J.C.L.A. Have Their Say!


Are Ben & His Buddies On The Defensive?

11 comments:

  1. "It's a simple and horrible truth that some children were physically or sexually abused in Jersey care homes, that they were abused by the people who were trusted to look after them, and that not enough was done by the people running various States departments to make sure that they were run properly, and by decent people."

    "That's not new information, and it's not in dispute."

    Really? Has that information filtered down to the readers yet? The fact that this affirmation of the reality of abuse sounds profound coming from the JEP is part of the grand tragedy of Jersey.

    Reading JEP reader comments regarding the abuse survivors, online, I am often depressed by readers' apparent confusion between unduly harsh, punitive practices by overwhelmed staff and the potentially more life destroying acts of child rape, tortuous cruelty and other perverse acts which never could be publicly viewed as acceptable.

    What these reader comments do is present to the outside world the impression that Jersey people can't distinguish between right and wrong. It leaves an impression that children would still be very unsafe in Jersey, and that adult empathy is in critically, scandalously short supply. When reader comments focus on the suspicion these abuse survivors are only after money, the same survivors are re-victimized and Jersey seems ever more vile. Oh, Jersey, how mean you look to the rest of the English speaking world!

  2. Progress. The JEP acknowledge victims of abuse as opposed the much favoured 'alleged victims'

    Dear Editors


    I refer to your leader that appeared in the Jersey Evening Post ("JEP") on Thursday 20th September.


    I noticed the leader was not backed up with any evidence.


    The Jersey bloggers have been leaked many documents over the years. We have painstakingly exposed the Child Abuse Cover-up.


    I will cut straight to the chase here.


    I believe the JEP has walked straight into its very own Hillsborough moment. By this I mean that the JEP replicates the actions of the Sun newspaper in the UK and its role in the Hillsborough cover up. I do not need to go into the finer details of the foregoing at this present moment, but what I find fascinating is the handling by the JEP of the Jersey Child Abuse Investigation and subsequent fall-outs.


    I am of the opinion that the JEP has towed the establishment line in only telling one side of the story. It has failed to take a proactive approach in bringing to light the magnitude of evidence, which has been produced and published online by the Jersey bloggers. You have not demanded answers from our Chief Minister as to why we have had such a long delay in bringing forth a Committee of Enquiry in decades long child abuse. Nor have you even been proactive in helping survivors of this child abuse to find closure. By this I mean taking a long hard investigative look at what has gone on. It is simply ridiculous to call Jersey's investigative bloggers "conspiracy theorists", so ridiculous in fact that I believe the time has come for me, together with the editors of the JEP, to have a live discussion on BBC Radio Jersey where we can see who are the conspiracy theorists, who is able to quote from hard evidential documentation and allow people to phone in and have their say.


    I am prepared to put up. Are you?


    I am sure BBC Radio Jersey would be able to offer us the platform to have this out in the open. We all know that John Hemming, Liberal Democrat MP, used UK parliamentary privilege to highlight the alleged failings in the Jersey system of government. I thank him for this. I love my island dearly, but I do not like the role the JEP is playing in it.


    I hope you and the BBC will agree to this suggestion and, so as to be as transparent and open as possible, here is a list of some of the evidence I shall be referring to.



    The Napier Report, The Met "Interim" Report, The 4 ACPO Reports , The Warcup Letter, The Failings of Wiltshire and their Report, The Affidavits of Lenny Harper & Graham Power, The Home Affairs Scrutiny Sub Panel Report and findings into the BDO Report, Graham Powers 62,000 word statement to Wiltshire, the suspension review papers of Graham Power and the utter shambles of Home Affairs Minister, Senator, Ian Le Marquand.



    This is just a selection of the documentation I will be referring to



    Look forward to a prompt reply



    Kind Regards

  4. I can see why they are saying on the JEP website that this blog is doing damage to the JCLA because you are no voice for Carrie Modral or victims of abuse even though you ineptly think you are. But I laughed earlier in the week when I was told by a close source that one of the reasons Stuart Syvret is taking his fitness so seriously these days is after seeing you fuck up yours! Nobody wants to end up like you before they are 50!

  5. This is a very rapid 'about turn' by the JEP. On Thursday a damning editorial, and on Saturday a contrary view.

    Interesting to note that the name of VERITA does not appear in either article though, but credit to Ben Queree on his article.

  6. "Every year, they somehow find it: a subject that almost no one who’s not actually in the States cares about, a subject that doesn’t really affect anyone that much and that doesn’t go anywhere."

    "And that’s why the Lost Cause of the Year is the suspended police chief Graham Power/Napier Report/shredded notes sagazzzzzzzz… hang on, sorry, dozed off for a moment there."

    You're a real asset Ben.

  7. After reading the latest article by Ben Queree, I suspect he has finally turned to the blogs to learn about the evidence his newspaper actively dismisses. He must know by now that the oligarchy only wish the Graham Power/Napier Report/shredded notes saga had really put all of Jersey to sleep as intended. If anything, the facts surrounding those issues have awakened some very independent journalism in Jersey.

  8. Just had a comment left from "Modral's butt plug" probably the usual deranged freak! Well done, you sum up comment one's point beautifully.


    "What these reader comments do is present to the outside world the impression that Jersey people can't distinguish between right and wrong. It leaves an impression that children would still be very unsafe in Jersey, and that adult empathy is in critically, scandalously short supply.
