I feel for Trevor & Shona Pitman, but unfortunately they are not the first and will not be the last to be hounded in Jersey. There are far too many of us who have lost out by sticking to our principles, that is just the way it is in the island. I hate to say this but at the end of the day even if you win in a Jersey court the damages you would get in judgement here are a pittance, a punishment of kinds for having the audacity to like we did for example; take a States Member to court, so been there done that and worn the T-shirt.
To be honest the reporting that went on here did not surprise me in the least, far too much goes unreported in the island that would be in the public interest to know about that I am tempted to put a group together and publish a monthly magazine stuffed with it.
One of the main problems is that a lot of people are still not on the internet in the island and only see or hear the censored version of what goes on here , a lot of news is suffering from unnecessary censorship. Books that are indie published by local authors do not get reviewed, and everything gets tamed down for obvious reasons.
On Trevor Pitman’s website he quotes Martin Luther King.
‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter’.
Martin Luther King
In Jersey the reverse is what is happening to people who care.
