As I reported to the Police back in the 1970’s seeing 11 children go out from Jersey on the Morning Cloud with Ted Heath, Jimmy Saville and a Jersey States Senator at the time, I was with another Jersey States member Senator Ralph Vibert, he told me later that day that only ten boys came back and I went to the Police with him to report this and ask for the matter to be investigated. Nothing was done Senator Ralph Vibert told me that nothing was being done and we could not take things further on instructions from above, I know the Police man who wanted to investigate stopped doing so being in fear of repercussions. Disgusting but true. I do not for a moment that the truth will ever come out now as there is still a continual cover up in the island and anything dirty will be swept up and shoved under the carpet. I speak openly about this as I will not be party to it,the abused deserve better, end of.
I hate it when people have said to me in Jersey that they are fed up of hearing about those who have not had justice that have been abused in the island, like a lot of the general publish in the island also wish to brush everything under the carpet, this in my opinion is because they have been brainwashed by the continual whitewash reporting by the islands main media who have in the past continually been party to the cover up that continues to go on in the island.
It would be wonderful if everyone stopped being afraid of their own shadows and told the truth about the things they know about, the Jersey way has to stop, there are plenty of others who saw what I saw, just wish they would come forward and help put wrongs to rights, that is the only way the island can clear its name. Come forward and be clean stop the lies and cover up.
Jersey people need to stop allowing themselves to be part of a culture of fear!
I hope the new inquiry will not be another whitewash! We will see?
