"The Ignoramus Emperor Bailhache Is Put In His Place"

Archbishop of Canterbury

'should intervene in Dean dispute'



The Archbishop of Canterbury has been asked to help reconcile Jersey's Dean and the Diocese of Winchester.
The Dean, the Very Reverend Bob Key, was suspended by the Bishop of Winchester over his handling of a vulnerable adult's complaint he was abused by a churchwarden.
Archbishop Justin Welby said he would not intervene in the bishop's handling of the situation.
Senator Philip Bailhache said the move could hit island and church relations.

'Christians concerned'
The Bishop of Winchester, Tim Dakin, withdrew Mr Key's commission in March.
It followed the publication of a diocesan report which found failures in the implementation of policies relating to a complaint by a vulnerable adult parishioner in 2008 about the alleged abusive behaviour of a churchwarden.
Senator Bailhache, the island's former bailiff, said he had written to the archbishop, asking him to try to find a way to reconcile the two parties.
The archbishops' office said Dr Welby would not get involved because he believed it was an internal diocese matter.
The archbishop has made a personal apology to the alleged victim.
Senator Bailhache said if the archbishop was not involved, it could affect the relationship between Jersey and the Anglican Church.
He said: "A huge number of people - including Catholics, Methodists, other members of the Christian Church and people of no faith - have told me they are extremely concerned about how the Dean was treated."
The Diocese of Winchester has not been available for comment.


"It's Called Due Process Bailhache"

"Senator Bailhache, the island's former bailiff, said he had written to the archbishop, asking him to try to find a way to reconcile the two parties."

"The archbishops' office said Dr Welby would not get involved because he believed it was an internal diocese matter."

It is clear from the above quote that the Archbishop is playing it straight, it is not his fault that Bailhache, or his ilk, have no concept whatsoever of the phrase "DUE PROCESS".

Of course, the tyrant, not happy with this, then attempts "The Jersey Way" bullying tactic which it appears the Archbishop is completely disinterested in.

"Senator Bailhache said if the archbishop was not involved, it could affect the relationship between Jersey and the Anglican Church."

Bailhache then backs up "The Jersey Way" threat, with the old bribery routine.

"A huge number of people - including Catholics, Methodists, other members of the Christian Church and people of no faith - have told me they are extremely concerned about how the Dean was treated."

The Archbishop then responds with....Silence.

Obviously Phick Phil can't get it through his Phick skull that the Archbishop of Canterbury just isn't interested in his Feudal bullying techniques, or his "Jersey Way" blackmail.

  1. Contrary to what Balliche says about many members of different churches and even non believers having told him that it was wrong for the Dean to be suspended, to date I have only found 3 out of a vast number of Church of England members and other people that I have spoken to, and that includes a number of politicians, who say it is unfair, he is talking out of his ass.

  2. Ian.

    Senator Bailhache seems hell bent on keeping Jersey's reputation in the gutter with his latest attempts to control an abuse investigation.

    Ian Gorst needs to grow a pair of conkers and rein this bloke in before he does any more damage to this island and its reputation.

    My support lies with HG, and Senator Bailhache DOES NOT in any way represent me. Let the church get on with its job and stop interfering please Senator?

  3. Ian,

    Communication works at the speed of light, in todays internet world. Senator Bailhache is entitled to his personal opinion, but what people may forget, or not know is the CM Gorst wrote on behalf of Jersey a very nice letter to the CoE hoping it would all be sorted out and basically leaving it their hands.

    To support the letter the Chief Minister wrote, I only thought it fair, to email the Bishop, wishing him well and including the JEP comments section, along with VFC excellent review, yours and Rico plus comments from islanders on PJ to allow the Bishop to have a broad based idea of how ordinary folk feel in Jersey displaying their personal views on the better blogs. The vast majority supported the church in their efforts certainly not Senator Bailhache.

    To be frank he was made to look an egotistical fool by sheer weight of comment numbers, giving the opposite view of his own.

    The pen is always mighty than the sword, even more so with the internet.

    Tim.

  4. My faith in the church is restored, though I'm still a non believer.

  5. Again, Senator Bailhache fails to say that "A huge number of people - including Catholics, Methodists, other members of the Christian Church and people of no faith - have told me they are extremely concerned about how the VICTIM was treated!!!"

    The Archbishop must think the Senator is utterly dim to press the issue of the Dean being the victim.

  6. The Dean is the victim, but only the victim of his own thoughtlessness and utter lack of compassion toward the vulnerable in his community, instead choosing to protect "The Jersey Way" over victims of "The Jersey Way"....
