SAVILE IN JERSEY; A SUSPENDED CHIEF INSPECTOR; CONDOR CONDEMNED & OTHER STORIES. . .
It can only be Episode 2 of ‘The Bald Truth Review’ – the political week in 10 minutes or less!
Yes, welcome back to Episode 2 of what the JEP’s ‘A week in politics’ should tell you but won’t in case it shook your support for their hapless Establishment Party chums in the Council of Ministers. What have we got for you this week? Well, almost a bit of ‘something’ for everyone.
A ‘political leak’ even bigger than the one that saw the mainstream media story of a ‘damning’ report that ‘justified’ the illegal suspension of Police Chief Graham Power revealed to have less substance than the Invisible Man! Indeed, a new ‘political leak’ that could mean many Members of the Establishment Party forced to spend a whole day in the States Chamber for the first time in years…
£2.35 an hour ‘slavery’ – or the truly disgusting exploitation of Ukrainian seafarers by a ferry company who’s Jersey ‘links’ go back generations. Can we really condone this treatment of fellow workers in the democratic world of the 21st Century? Yes, we’re talking about Condor and if you travel with them you ought to be on the phone to both their Jersey and Guernsey offices - right now! Meanwhile you can watch a short video about this issue by clicking here:
We also have Jimmy Savile in Jersey and the photograph the late ‘celebrity’ took out an injunction to prevent being seen. ‘Allegations without substance’ as our mainstream media regularly portray anything painting Jersey is a light that is less than rose-tinted? Or do we need to be digging a whole lot deeper?
Talking of ‘digging’ I also have an update on best-selling author and highly respected U.S. journalist, Leah McGrath Goodman’s fight to be able to return to Jersey to continue her research in to Haut de la Garenne. Three weeks after the launching of the very public petition we may finally have a way forward?
Not enough for ten short minutes? Well, I also have news of a Chief Inspector in Jersey’s police being suspended and news of what is rumoured to be behind it. Last but not least the Home Affairs Minister’s attempt to try and make the ‘not fit for purpose’ affront to civil liberties that is our Jurat system look a bit more plausible as the Establishment party get twitchy over my forthcoming proposition.
All of this and the return of award-winning and freshly ‘liberated’ Bald Truth Review backdrop! Trust me – if you aren’t excited by this then you are probably already dead! Or possibly even worse – a Conservative…
Keep the Faith
