"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Re-opening A Conspiracy Theory

The Mail on Sunday reports on the likely £20m cost to the taxpayer of the investigations into child abuse at Haut de la Garenne, Jersey.  It also details the expenses claimed by investigators from which it can only be assumed that they were taking the p!$$ bigtime.

The article brought to mind Chief Constable Mike Todd who committed suicide on Snowdon allegedly because of an out-of-control lovelife but who might have survived if Mountain Rescue had been alerted earlier.

He was linked to the Haut de la Garenne investigation, as were Sergeant Richard Fuller and Inspector Neil Munro who also committed suicide.

Colin Tillbrook, the Superintendent of the Children's Home was accused by his step-daughter of repeated rape when she was just 10yrs old.
CNN's Phil Black reports from Jersey »To date, a total of 65 milk teeth have been recovered from the cellars at Haut de la Garenne. Experts believe the teeth could only have come out after death because of their condition.  Over 100 human bone fragments have been discovered at the site, with one piece identified as coming from a child's leg and another from a child's ear.
No worries, no prosecutions, it was just coconut shell. There are far too many unanswered questions about Haut de la Garenne.


  1. This is one of the most appalling examples of political corruption I've ever heard of during my lifetime.

    Not so long ago I was trying to find out what happened to the one and only Jersey politician who wanted prosecutions - he's vanished off the face of the earth.

  2. Do you have his name SR? I agree with you - BAE is, so far as we know at the moment, only about money but this is far, far worse. The links between those who 'committed suicide' and HdlG are too great to be dismissed. We're only getting glimpses behind the curtain of government at the moment.

  3. Seek the power brokers of Europe and you find a lot of self-interest. Dunblane was just a part of a European wide, Belgian style nastiness.

  4. It's endemic OR - or should that be 'pandemic'? Paedo Flu.

  5. Stuart Syvret. He's in contact with John Hemming, MP. Syvret rather stupidly, and against advice, kept appealing to Jack Staw. For some reason he seemed to think Straw had either the authority or the will to go in and clean up Jersey. He wouldn't be shifted from this and couldn't grasp that Straw had cheerfully helped cover up for Hodge in Islington.

    Syvret still has a blog, but they arrested him as soon as they could. He had done some things which were out of order and could have resulted in cases being lost, but he thought (probably rightly) that the Jersey prosecutors were dragging their feet and trying to avoid doing anything.

    The law is all different in Jersey - it's separate and based on a mix of UK, Roman and Norman law, so you can't make assumptions about procedure based on how things work here.

    Having said that, Syvret's last blog entry seemed reasonably up-beat.


    He goes on even longer than I do.

  6. Thanks for that WoaR - I've added his voice to the blogroll. Do you know if this is the case Harold Evans spoke about yesterday on the Politics Show (gag notice)?

  7. Don't know, sorry - see Private Eye 1246 page 6, Legal News, for an exasperated rant about the problem of prior restraint injunctions which are being granted willy-nilly.
