Updated--What the hell is going on Senator Le Marquand?


Assistant Home Affairs Minister

Jackie Hilton

In my quest to find the Truth behind the actions of the Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand as laid out below. I thought I would try the Assistant Minister Deputy Hilton. This is  where we are at the moment. 


Just for reference sake I have not included the email I sent to ILM as it is further down this posting. I did include it in the email to Deputy Hilton so she is fully aware of the facts.


All I want are answers to the points I have raised. 


Truth,Honesty and Integrity

Dear Assistant Minister


Having not received a reply from the Home Affairs Minister to the serious points I raise below could you please get back to me ASAP with an explanation as to why the Home Affairs Minister was making allegations against the former Chief of Police on the 31st December 2010 when he had in fact dropped them in January 2009.


I find these actions from the Minister unacceptable.


Remember Wiltshire? The same has happened again

Dear Mr. Sorda,

 

It is not for me to second guess why the Home Affairs Minister makes comments one way or the other,  there is nothing more I can usefully add to this.

 

Kind regards,

 

Deputy Jackie Hilton.

Dear Assistant Minister

 

 Thank you for your very  prompt reply.

 

I was not expecting you to second guess your Minister I was expecting you to ask him. Are you not the Assistant Home Affairs Minister? If the good Minister was to resign tomorrow, would it not be good to know what he is basing his allegations on.

 

Im getting very worried with the actions of the Home Affairs Minister and his department. If the Minister is in the JEP making allegations that he had dropped two years previously then I think that is very serious. I have emailed Senator Le Marquand as you can see and he has failed to respond.

 

This is very urgent.

 

Why did the Minister raise these allegations on the 31st December 2010 in the JEP when he had dropped them in January 2009

 

Assistant Minister I also believe it is essential that I have your view on this as I believe the Home Affairs Ministry is a collective

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Mrs. GeeGee, thank you for your e-mail. I am now in the final year of my current term as Minister for Home Affairs. There are 8 priority items which I need to deliver this year all of which are of great importance. I am therefore almost totally focussed on these. I have already made it clear to VFC that I will not respond to any further correspondence in relation to Mr. Power, Mr. Harper or the Historical Abuse Enquiry from him or from any other of the individuals who categorise themselves as Citizen's media but who are in fact merely individuals who have a fixed and firm idea as to what has happened notwithstanding the weight of evidence in the opposite direction. The States of Jersey Police now have a new and excellent leader and need to move on. Frankly, the speculation on these blogsites is going nowhere and I am simply not prepared to give any further time in this area. It is my judgment that it is in the public interest that I now concentrate my time on my 8 priority items and that is what I am going to do. Yours sincerely, Ian Le Marquand.       




On this blog I will be concentrating on the Home Affairs Minister, Senator Ian Le Marquand, and his article that appeared in the Jersey Evening Post on 31 December 2010.  This article, written by Diane Simon, appeared on the night of the great Jersey Evening Post special marking the closing down of the historic abuse enquiry.  In amongst the garbage that appeared that night was the article under the headline "Police 'bullying' is a thing of the past".  This article really grabbed my attention because not only did it go against everything I knew from the HMIC reports concerning the running of the States of Jersey Police force but fully exposed Senator Ian Le Marquand as someone prepared to manipulate the reporting of true events to fit his own agenda.


As I always try to do, I wish to evidence this comment through the use of facts.   Please bear with me with the length of this blog posting but I feel it is essential for you to read the evidence.  What I will be reproducing below is a series of emails sent to the Home Affairs Minister and which, at the time of going to press, have not been responded to.


What I find completely staggering is that Diane Simon did not challenge and, as far as I am aware, has never challenged anything that the Home Affairs Minister has said.  Let us be under no illusion of how badly the people of Jersey are being let down by the local media.  Ian Le Marquand, as the old saying goes, wants to have his cake and eat it.  Are we now saying that it is perfectly acceptable for a former magistrate, who should possess ethical traits such as truth, honesty and integrity, to table allegations then withdraw the allegations and then, when the persons at whom the allegations are levelled has turned his back and left the Island, sees fit to resurrect the allegations as concrete facts.


I find the actions of the Home Affairs Minister quite unacceptable.  On speaking to people in the course of general conversation and through more formal correspondence I have tried to understand why the Home Affairs Minister is acting as he is.  At the time of writing, I do not know if it is simply arrogance, corruption or even if there is a heavy church influence somewhere in the background because, make no mistake, through just a little bit of investigative journalism, something is not quite stacking up.


As you will see Ian Le Marquand first asks the former Chief of Police, Graham Power, on 31 December 2008 about the bullying allegations.  In January 2009 Ian Le Marquand drops all proceedings into these allegations, as will be evidenced below.  Two years to the day, 31 December 2010, Senator Le Marquand resurrects these allegations as he knows there is no form of recourse for the former Chief of Police, Graham Power.  This is shocking, scandalous and answers need to found as to why this has been able to happen.  It gives me no pleasure in exposing the Chief Minister and Home Affairs Minister as lying cretinous buffoons.  Now some might feel these allegations harsh, but then I will just drop them and when they leave office resurrect them.  That's how it's done after all.


This all ties in with the cover up of child abuse.  All these actions are designed to discredit the SOJP under the leadership of Graham Power and Lenny Harper.  If someone can come up with a better argument or alternative point of view, I am all ears.  As you will see, I base this all on evidence.


The Home Affairs Minister was meant to remain "Neutral" as was the Chief Minister 


What is now evidenced fact, ILM was setting an Agenda before the Suspension Reviews and long before the Wiltshire Debacle.


Now for the eveidence

Hi Senator 


As you are well aware. I have been researching and investigating the historic child abuse investigation for many months now.  Along with the many matters for concern I have uncovered, not least the Chief Minister, Terry Le Sueur, openly misleading the House with regard to the dropping of Part D of the Napier terms of reference, I have found your role and your judgement so very hard to work out.


I have tried and failed to gain a reasonable understanding of your actions concerning the Wiltshire Report.  If I am not mistaken, the Wiltshire Report was part of a disciplinary process of the former Chief of Police, Graham Power QPM.  I still find it absolutely staggering that a former magistrate, who is meant to know, practice and abide by the law and above all should demonstrate absolute neutrality and fairness, dropped all disciplinary charges against Graham Power and on the same day made a statement to the House without having informed Mr Power of the action taken.  You then proceeded to hold a kangaroo court with the full weight of the local media in hanging Graham Power out to dry with no right of redress through the proper channels.  I have spoken to many people regarding your actions concerning Mr Power's suspension and the reason for doing this, Senator Le Marquand, is to establish your role in the history of the matter and the reasoning behind your more recent actions.


Below I reproduce an article that appeared in the Jersey Evening Post on bullying in the States of Jersey Police.




Police ‘bullying’ is a thing of the past, says minister

By Diane Simon



Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand


SIGNIFICANT progress has been made during the past two years in changing the culture of bullying and arrogance which affected the States police, says Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand.

And the positive changes have come under the leadership of former acting police chief David Warcup and his deputy, Barry Taylor, said the Senator.

Commenting at the end of the historical child abuse inquiry, Senator Le Marquand said that there had been cultural issues in the force which were exacerbated under the leadership of police chief Graham Power and his deputy, Lenny Harper.

‘I noticed a culture of bullying in certain areas and a culture of arrogance,’ said Senator Le Marquand. ‘The message coming from senior management tended to be “We are the expert professionals and we know better than you”, and that attitude was being passed down the force.’


Having read the HMIC reports during Graham Power and Lenny Harper's terms in office, I can see nothing but praise for the way in which they turned the Police force around.  As you are aware, there was a HMIC report released in 2001/2 which was very critical on the running of the States of Jersey Police force.

Could you please send me the link to the report upon which the statements made in the above article are based.  The reason I say this is that I will be astonished and shocked if the Home Affairs Minister was in fact just expressing an opinion based on his own interpersonal relations with the individuals concerned.

I very much look forward to receiving your reply as I believe this is a very important issue.

Yours sincerely

Rico Sorda



So, as you can see this is a very straight forward email. I then contacted the former Chief of Police Graham Power for his response to these allegations, what came back left me shocked. What I reproduce below is a reply from Graham Power to the original allegations by  Senator Le Marquand the date was the 31st DECEMBER 2008. I repeat 31st DECEMBER 2008.

Dear 


YOUR LETTERS DATED 31ST DECEMBER 2008.

     Thank you for your letters dated 31st December 2008 and for the personal attention you have given to these matters.   One letter, which I shall call the first letter, concerns a letter I sent to you on 15th December 2008.   The second raises a new issue of an alleged “culture of bullying.”    Attached to the second letter is a copy of a letter to the Chief Executive, Mr Bill Ogley.   I will reply in more detail to both letters in the next few days.   The purpose of this letter is to make immediate representations regarding the course of action you propose in the attachment to the second letter. 


     In the same envelope and on the same day I have received from you two letters.   The first tells me that as a consequence of information I have provided to you relating to the apparent conduct of Mr Ogley, you have referred the matter to the Law Officers Department with a view to determining whether a criminal investigation is required.   For what it is worth I support the action you have taken in respect of that issue.   The second letter tells me that an allegedly new matter has arisen, and that you have referred this to Mr Ogley for him to take forward.   It may be that in the overall scale of events you have inadvertently overlooked the clear conflict of interest which your second action involves.   Assuming that to be the case I now formally draw it to your attention.  

 

     My own position is that I regard Mr Ogley as conflicted in this matter and that I do not consider it fair or in any way consistent with the principles of justice that he should have any role whatsoever in matters affecting my interests until such time as he has been exonerated of any misconduct in his handling of my case.   I therefore request that arrangements be made for the second issue to be addressed in a way which removes any suggestion that Mr Ogley has been in a position to influence actions in respect of my case.


     While I hope that this letter is not seen as unnecessarily robust and inhibitive of future working relationships I nevertheless feel it appropriate to make this representation in the clearest of terms in order that my position cannot be misunderstood.

     Thank you again for your attention to this matter.



Yours sincerely,



Graham Power.

YOUR LETTER DATED 31ST DECEMBER 2008 REFERRING TO A “CULTURE OF BULLYING.”


     Thank you for the above correspondence, and for keeping me informed on events relating to my case.   You will by now have received my hand-delivered letter dated 3rd January 2009 which makes representations regarding the management of this issue.


     I have to confess that this latest matter came as a surprise.    This is particularly so, given my undisputed inheritance of a serious bullying culture, and the actions I have taken to resolve this, which have been confirmed and supported by independent assessment.   Assuming you have been fully briefed, you will be aware of the critical comments of H.M. Inspectorate of Constabulary prior to my appointment, and of the level of concern on the part of the former committee, which led to a senior female officer from the U.K. being asked to undertake a review.   You may also have been told of the significant anti-bullying and harassment measures I have put in place during my tenure, including Jerseys only “off island” reporting line.   You might also be aware of some of the high profile disciplinary hearings in which I have addressed this inherited culture.   This included at least one case in which the perpetrator made counter-allegations against the former D.C.O.  I arranged for allegations to be independently investigated by Devon and Cornwall Police under the supervision of the Jersey Police Complaints Authority.   The allegations against the D.C.O. were found to be unsubstantiated and vexatious and his actions were fully supported.   In progressing anti-bullying policy I have been much encouraged by feedback from staff focus groups organised by H.M. Inspectorate of Constabulary, which have provided additional evidence of a well motivated workforce, with high levels of morale.   Police staff members with experience in other areas of the public sector have often commented in a positive way on the progressive measures introduced under my leadership. 

  

     The allegation is also inconsistent with the messages which I continue to receive almost daily from within the force, the wider public sector, and concerned islanders.   The majority of those who have been in touch do in fact make reference to an oppressive culture characterised by victimisation and bullying.   The “culture of bullying” to which they refer is the one emanating from the senior levels of Cyril Le Marquand House, with my own experience being seen as a typical, but not exclusive example of that behaviour.


     That said, I await with interest the production of any credible evidence to support what is apparently alleged.   You can take it as given that I will be determined and relentless in the defence of my position, and, should any allegations be shown to be false, I naturally reserve all of my options for seeking proper redress against those responsible.


     Thank you for your continued attention to these matters.   I await a response at the appropriate time.




Yours sincerely.




Graham Power




The above allegations by Home Affairs Minister have been challenged by the then Chief of Police Graham Power. 


So what happens next I hear you ask?

DISCIPLINARY CODE IN RELATION TO THE CHIEF OFFICER OF POLICE.


     Thank you for your letter dated 26th January 2009 under the above heading which makes reference to your correspondence dated 31st December 2008 in which you gave notice of a possible  further investigation relating to an alleged “culture of bullying.”


     I am grateful for your notification that you have decided to take this possible additional matter no further and take this as confirmation that all matters contained in the earlier correspondence in so far as they relate to any allegations concerning any conduct on my part are thereby withdrawn.

     Thank you for keeping me informed on this issue.

Graham Power.






So, on the 31st December 2008. Senator Ian Le Marquand informs Graham Power of a " Possible further Investigation under the Code" ref "Culture of Bullying.


On the same Date Senator ILM informs the Chief Executive Bill Ogley of the possible further Investigation under the code


Graham Power Acknowledges this on the 3rd January 2009


On the 7th January Graham Power write his reply to the Allegations 


On the 26th January 2009 Senator ILM writes to Graham Power and says,



Dear Mr Power


Re: Disciplinary Code in relation to the Chief Officer


Further to my letter to Mr Ogley of the 31st December 2008 ( of which I sent you a copy ) and your subsequent letters of 3rd and 7th January, I write to advise you that I have decided to take this possible additional matter no further


Yours Sincerely


Ian Le Marquand


Minister for Home Affairs




Ladies and Gentleman I rest my case. What the hell is Senator Ian Le Marquand up to . How come on the 31st December 2010 this Headline Turns up. He then heaps all the praise on Dave Warcup and his team.  Im not a Journalist nor am I even an investigative journalist, im just a very concerned member of the public who is prepared to expose these Bozos because our Media cant.


I have emailed Diane Simon with these facts: Still no reply 


I will now reproduce a letter sent to Lenny Harper on his retirement from then Home Affairs Minister Wendy Kinnard 



Dear Lenny,


I write on the eve of your retirement from the States of Jersey Police to personally thank you for all that you have achieved on behalf of our island community since joining the Force in May 2002, firstly as Superintendent Head of Operations and thereafter as Deputy Chief Officer from September 2003.


There have been numerous important contributions you have made to policing locally that I could mention but there are some which have a particular significance that should rightly be highlighted.


The 2002/2003 Report of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) noted that the executive team, including the Chief Superintendent (Operations), “enjoys the strong support of staff both in respect of its leadership style and the overall direction of the States of Jersey Police”. This was not evident during the last Inspection in 1999 and it is a compliment to the leadership style that a number of officers described the SoJP as ‘focused’ and ‘continuing to move forward’. (Page 5) This new approach by the executive team has delivered real benefit in terms of falling crime levels year on year.


In the 2006 HMIC Report, by which time you had been in the position of Deputy Chief Officer for 3 years, you were singled out for particular praise in respect of your high profile leadership on all professional standards issues. You were described as driving the need for high integrity and inspiring, promoting and supporting an ethical culture. (Page 9)


In addition, I should like to focus on topics where I feel your contribution has been particularly key to success; one being the development of the first ever Memorandum of Understanding between the Honorary Police and the States of Jersey Police. You were instrumental in the process of building confidence between the Forces and everyone can see the benefit of the Memorandum which has been put in place and continues to work well.


I have also been impressed by your commitment to diversity issues. As you are aware racial and sexual discrimination in the workplace and elsewhere has yet to be prohibited by law. Nevertheless Professional Standards under your leadership and working to an agreed policy framework with the Minister and Assistant Minister has firmly challenged and addressed unacceptable behaviour.  


The team of which you have been an integral part were complimented by HMIC in 2002/2003 for numerous positive changes many of which are directly attributable to the dynamism and robust, visible and accessible leadership style (Page 5). It is these very same qualities which you have demonstrated personally during your leadership of the Historical Abuse Inquiry. Since the early stages of the Inquiry I have seen you build and then lead a first rate team. The Inquiry is of huge significance to the people of Jersey and particularly to all those who have been affected by abuse. Your robust approach, whilst showing sensitivity to the victims, has undoubtedly been crucial in demonstrating to a sceptical audience that the States of Jersey Police are taking these matters seriously and that they will be thoroughly investigated.


It is because leadership of this calibre is exceptional that I write as Home Affairs Minister to acknowledge the significant contribution which you have made to the States of Jersey Police. I wish you well for the future in spending more time with your family which I know mean so much to you.



Yours sincerely,



Senator Wendy Kinnard

Of course in the end the only thing to do is to replace these shameful characters, all of them.

Rico.

One can't argue with the "facts". Firstly the "fact" that the "accredited" media have been hugely exposed AGAIN for, at best, shoddy journalism, and at worst a bunch of cover-up merchants.

It's plain to see Ian Le Marquand puts allegations to Graham Power QPM, drops the allegations and then gives them to the JEP as "fact" which naturally they are happy to print no questions asked. He then gets some more allegations courtesy of Wiltshire and a million quid, drops the allegations and gives them to the JEP as "fact" which narurally they are happy to print no questions asked.

The FOUR ACPO Reports and numorous HMIC Reports show that Lenny Harper and Graham Power turned around a failing, possibly corrupt, Police Force and Ian Le Marquand makes no mention of it. On the contrary Ian Le Marquand just makes up his own version of events!!

It's no wonder the "accredited" media are doing all they can to discredit the Blogs. The Blogs are exposing the "accredited" media and THE TRUTH.

Anonymous said...

What I take from your blog today, is anything reported in the JEP as from Mr. Le Marquand no longer holds any Kudos. More so given his position as Home Affairs Minister.

Perhaps he is testing you Rico to make sure you are paying attention.

I am so pleased someone is:) What a bad state of affairs.

I've got an idea. Let's make up a load of allegations against Ian Le Marquand publish them all over the Blogs and when we are asked to substantiate them......just drop them!!

Politicians are supposed to lead by example, so let's just follow Ian Le Marquand's example. Publish a load of whatever we like and offer him no right of reddress!!

TLS: "I was getting advice" but is this not the same man who has said something along the lines of: there can be different advice ie:Napier!

Also, as ILM said (GP suspension review) something like, 'I have to take advice, but I make my own decision'

The question for TLS is:

I accept you had to take legal advice, but why did you not make the 'right' decision to ignore it - just like Ogley did re: ensuring there were no caveats in the Wiltshire Interim report!!!!

Great work Rico Graham and Lenny were stitched up big time and you have just proved that with this post. Le Marquand you are nothing more than a piece of dirt and should be put in prison for what you've done.

Yes, the glorious 60's, 70;s , 80's and 90's when institutional child abuse was not investigated by the SOJP. Not until Graham Power and Lenny Harper turned did the abuse get investigated.

The conduct of the Home Affairs Minister must be seriously looked at. None of his actions are making sense

That made me laugh.

To be honest if the Media and our Journalists stepped up to the plate I would not be blogging simple as that. But how can Diane Simon just stick that big piece in the Jep child abuse cover-up special addition and not challenge what ILM is saying.

But just look at what ILM did with Wiltshire

This just proves what a rat ILM is. Funny sort of Christian, that tells such whopping great lies and persecutes an upright and hard working police officer to hound him out of office, to cover up systematic child abuse. I dont think it can be Jesus Christ this man is worshipping - it must be the other feller.

Hi Diane and Ben

Having read your unchallenged article with Senator Ian Le Marquand I decided to investigate this issue a little further. It has taken me about an hour and a couple of emails to discover all is not what it seems. As you can see Wiltshire wasn't the first time ILM wanted his cake and eat it.

I have no idea why the JEP is doing what it is concerning the Historic Child Abuse Investigation.

I will be putting this into the public domain

Diane, can you explain why no one is asking any questions, but just printing exactly what you are told.

I have fully exposed the Chief Minister with misleading the House ref the Napier Report and now this.

Ben can you explain to me the JEP's attitude towards the Historic Child Abuse Investigation and why the Abuse Survivors I know hate the paper with a passion. Even if the paper was taking a neutral view would have been a start.

Rico, you are exactly what a true investigative journalist is expected to be. You have done the kind of reporting work that actually matters in the profession and the accredited press has proved itself worthless. On-line journalism triumphs in Jersey because the local mainstream media surrendered all journalistic responsibility to you and your fellow bloggers. Shackles Simon and her ilk should be ashamed to leave their homes, now utterly exposed as failures in their professional purpose.

Rico.

This is just pure gold and further illustrates the ineptitude of Ian Le Marquand.

"In the same envelope and on the same day I have received from you two letters. The first tells me that as a consequence of information I have provided to you relating to the apparent conduct of Mr Ogley, you have referred the matter to the Law Officers Department with a view to determining whether a criminal investigation is required. For what it is worth I support the action you have taken in respect of that issue. The second letter tells me that an allegedly new matter has arisen, and that you have referred this to Mr Ogley for him to take forward."

Just bl--dy priceless!!

It really does highlight what we are exposing concerning ILM

Ok the link messed up the Voice will put a fresh one up soon but its a very good read.

Just so can get a taste

JEP Editorial from 2007.

Police Chief delivers change.

Six years ago the States of Jersey Police were the subject of a less than flattering report compiled in the wake of a visit by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary. Since then, problems clearly have been solved and new standards have been set, the latest HMI report

having described the force as “modern and fast-moving”.
Police Chief Graham Power and his officers can be proud of this achievement. In common with forces up and down Britain, the States Police are a complex and many-layered organisation. Accomplishing the turn-around of the past six years can therefore, have been no easy undertaking. Nor can it have been particularly pleasant. The process of major change is always likely to upset those set in their ways or content to roll along in accordance with comfortable but outdated routines.

Rico,

Its been over a week since you sent ILM your email and obviously no reply from him yet.

If he doesn't reply its because he can't answer, or prove against your allegations.

But the sad thing is why should he?

If TLS can get away with taking out/changing part d on the TOR. ILM can surely get away with this.

Until there is a way to make these, our elected representative accountable to their electorate, they will carry on doing just as they please.

And just how do we make them accounable?

A plan of attack, then action from like minded people is desparately needed.

Another sad fact is that ILM is not up for election this year.

"If TLS can get away with taking out/changing part d on the TOR. ILM can surely get away with this."

It was John Richardson that removed part (d) of the Napier Terms of Reference.......a civil servant. Who didn't mention it to Deputy Bob Hill who was supposed to have oversight.

Rumour has it that Ogley will be going this year and John Richardson will be taking his place. Do you think he has his own shredder?

YES YES YES YES YES!

This is the best way to reach people, please do this, you who live in Jersey. Instead of giving to dodgy "charities" - like the ones that pretend to help abused children and do the exact opposite, wont mention any names, spend the money on paper and printing ink, dont underestimate the power of this sort of direct action.

GeeGee said...

Again Rico you have exposed the measure of the man Le Marquand - a confused and sly man, who along with TLeS has, for quite some time now attempted to mislead the public by not answering any straightforward or pertinent questions put to them.

Again Mr Le Marquand, you have been caught out, and why will you not even acknowledge the fact that people send you e-mails. You were elected by the public, but you treat them with an arrogance beyond belief. Or, is it because you have NO answers, and as Rico so rightly says, make things up to suit the agenda at the time? (think 65 teeth all falling through the same small gap in the floorboards)!!

I watched a very interesting Dispatches programme last evening about corruption in Haiti, and one commenter said that nobody honest went into politics there. He could almost be referring to Jersey, although we do have those that struggle on against all odds.

This sort of posting just makes people more and more angry and determined. Good idea Anon above - if we all did a bit of informing the public it could just make a difference.

You've certainly shown up the local media and exposed Le Marquand what a dispicable man he is and calls himself a christian?

First up I would like to say a big thanks for the words of encouragement through comments and emails.

We at Team Voice work very hard to bring you the readers the truth about what is going on with the Cover-UP of Child Abuse in Jersey. I find it very depressing investigating these clowns and wish the media would do it instead. I don't have a problem with 85% of the foot soldiers, it's their Editors where the problems lie.

CTV, JEP & BBC Radio Jersey

Like I have said before, what major stories have these News outlets investigated and broken to the public that has been a benefit to the Island and its people?

The only Politician they have gone after is Stuart Syvret

What Politicians have they held to account?

Make no mistake the Local Media has played a huge role in the incompetence, lies, and down right moral and social corruption of this Government.

And their worse crime

Haha, Rico I have emailed Ian Le M and not even mentioned your blog in the past. He simply won't or can't be bothered to reply despite the fact pointed out to him that a percentage of my wages go towards paying him a nice enough salary. That was in my third email as I got fed up with his attitude that a normal citizen is obviously not worth 5 minutes of his time.

The sad thing is they dont give a monkeys about any taxpayer who questions them, and probably dont give a monkeys about those who dont either to be honest. Its much easier to ignore any emails and say you and others that question them are talking poop than it is to actually pen an answer and perhaps explain why you are talking poop. Anyone can say ahhh talking rubbish but then most times these poopers cant back it up, its literally they are talking rubbish so trust me I am a politician!!!

Good luck to anyone who sends an email to the guy, I reckon honest Nev would offer 50 to 1 against a response minimum!

Thats not to say you shouldnt email the bloke, maybe, just maybe if enough people do he will come out of his little bubble world and respond. Highly unlikely but good luck!

Two comments understate the importance of this: "...the accredited press has proved itself worthless. On-line journalism triumphs in Jersey because the local mainstream media surrendered all journalistic responsibility to you and your fellow bloggers." And, another comment: "If jersey had one real journalist then they would win every prize under the sun the island is a journalists dream."

Worthless doesn't begin to cover how bad the Jersey media situation is. The accredited press is much, much worse than worthless or lazy; it is clearly dedicated to covering up the very news which any real journalists should be investigating. That makes Shackles Simon and Ben NoEnquirey and their colleagues the ENEMY of honest investigative journalism.

There will be a time when honest accounts of this go completely mainstream through the outside media, and it will be indeed a dream job for any news organization to take on since you and Jersey's unpaid but real journalists have done the work for an astonishing story. This story will probably win someone journalistic awards, and at the center of the story will be the role of the Jersey media. Your own role in exposing this should not be understated.

This is from your email and is worth reproducing here as its bang on the money

"I have tried and failed to gain a reasonable understanding of your actions concerning the Wiltshire Report. If I am not mistaken, the Wiltshire Report was part of a disciplinary process of the former Chief of Police, Graham Power QPM. I still find it absolutely staggering that a former magistrate, who is meant to know, practice and abide by the law and above all should demonstrate absolute neutrality and fairness, dropped all disciplinary charges against Graham Power and on the same day made a statement to the House without having informed Mr Power of the action taken. You then proceeded to hold a kangaroo court with the full weight of the local media in hanging Graham Power out to dry with no right of redress through the proper channels. I have spoken to many people regarding your actions concerning Mr Power's suspension and the reason for doing this, Senator Le Marquand, is to establish your role in the history of the matter and the reasoning behind your more recent actions"

And just guess how many of your States Members thought that was ok? How many went along with the Wiltshire Fiasco? Take a very good look at your States Members. They think this is all ok.

‘I noticed a culture of bullying in certain areas and a culture of arrogance,’ said Senator Le Marquand

From the public servant who ignores the public who raise serious issues with him!!!!!!!

ARROGANCE must be what he views in his mirror!!

misleading or was it lying said...

I see, so Mr Graham Power was 60 in June 2007, when he was offered and accepted a three year extension, so June 2010 the new contract would have ended unless there was to be a new extension.

So why did ILM mislead the public into believing Mr Power had brought forward his retirement, when in fact that was not true?

Anonymous said...

Three clauses in the Ministerial Code of Conduct of which Le Marquand should remind himself;


"Elected members have a general duty to act in what they believe to be the best interests of Jersey as a whole, and a special duty to be accessible to the people of the constituency for which they have been elected to serve and to represent their interests conscientiously."


"Holders of public office are accountable for their decisions and actions to the public and must submit themselves to whatever scrutiny is appropriate to their office."


"Ministers should be as open as possible with the States, scrutiny committees and the public, refusing to provide information only when disclosure would not be in the public interest which should be decided in accordance with the relevant statutes and codes of access to information."


And of course:


"The purpose of the code of conduct is to assist Ministers in the discharge of their obligations to the States, the Council of Ministers, and the public of Jersey. All Ministers are required to comply with this code."


If Le Marquand is not answering emails, make a formal complaint.

Not holding my breath for any form of response.

Mr Le Marquand,

Along with a lot of other interested parties I read local and non-local blogs to hear the 'alternative', and often more truthful side of things.

I have in the past attempted to e-mail you, as indeed I know has VFC and recently Mr Sorda. You seem to feel that you have no obligation to acknowledge or respond to this correspondence. Sadly this paints you in a very poor light, moreso as an elected politician.

Not only is it rude and ignorant, but shows arrogance as well. As the contents of this latest blog are causing those who have read it some concern, maybe in this instance you would care to do a 'U-turn' on what appears to be your policy in not engaging with the electorate and give us a response via Mr Sorda.

Not doing so will only paint you in a darker light. Alternatively you may care to give us a valid reason for not doing so.

A matter such as, the Historical abuse investigation a matter of such little importance it would seem.

The current Chief Minister, Terry Le Sueur, flanked by Senator Le Marquand (left) and Philip Ozouf (right)

ECONOMIC Development Minister Alan Maclean and fellow Senator Ben Shenton have ruled themselves out of the running for this year’s election for Chief Minister.

Both Senators had been linked with the top job, which will fall vacant after the autumn general election.

With just nine months to go before the first same-day elections for Senators, Deputies and Constables, the contest to succeed Senator Terry Le Sueur as Chief Minister is already shaping up as a two-horse race between front-runner Senator Philip Ozouf, the Treasury Minister, and Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand.

Neither will face the electorate this year, as they are both half-way through their six-year Senatorial terms.

Freedom said...

Mr Le Marquand really believes in Democracy keep the Police under political control, Dont answer emails from members of the public, as a judge he sent far more than the national average of children to be locked up in secure units and of course solitary confinement he is a very unsavoury man

rico sorda said...

This is one crazy place.

The fact that Senator ILM would even think about running for Chief Minister goes seriously beyond a joke. Bowron must be happy that his Home Affairs Minister is thinking of doing one, just like Gradwell, just like Warcup, just like Frank Walker, just like Andrew Lewis. Slowly but surly they all want out.

I don't think Ozouf or Le Marquand should be Chief Minister. If I was a politician and they were my options I would obstain from voting.

Why does the Treasury Minister think he can vacate that position when Jersey could be heading into financial peril? Who would take the Treasury? Gorst?

Senator Ozouf has helped get us in this mess with his economic drive he must now remain at the Treasury and get us out of it.

Rico - I did respond to the e-mail and said thank you for the rapid but disappointing response, and the fact my disappointment stemmed from the fact that he felt he could engage with the JEP who were very one-sided and economical with the true facts, but not with Citizen's Media.

I also said that people will read into this what they will.

That said Anonymous - yes, I have been suitably chastised!! but have I given him food for thought? Probably not, but put this together with the article about him possibly standing for CM, and he should seriously consider his performance in office so far - an utter shambles and disappointment.

I did not vote for him, but if there is any reader of this blog that did, perhaps they would explain why, and if he has lived up to your expectations or otherwise. Also, would you vote for him again? A man so new and unimpressive into politics should certainly NOT be our next CM. Furthermore nor should Philip Ozouf, a man who has renaged on his promises and is causing untold hardship to Jersey's working classes.

So, who does that leave?........interesting times ahead.

Harper cleared of all charges
By Ben Quérée


Former deputy police chief Lenny Harper
FORMER deputy Police Chief Lenny Harper has been cleared of all internal charges against him.

Investigations into Mr Harper – who retired from the States of Jersey Police a year ago – began after former officers and associates claimed he carried out ‘witch-hunts’ against them, and that he bullied some of them out of the force.

But Mr Harper says that the States of Jersey Police have written to him saying that he had been cleared of all the allegations after a lengthy investigation, and that the inquiries are over.

He said that there had been five complainants in total, four former policemen and tow truck operator Roy Boschat. ‘All have now been found unsubstantiated or vexatious,’ said Mr Harper.

From Senator Le Marquands 2008 Manifesto

Oh dear here he goes again


Accountability of Government

Ministers should be more accountable to the people of Jersey and to the States.

Unfortunately ministerial government has not worked as well as I and many of the people of Jersey had hoped. This is due partly to the fact that some bad decisions have been made by individual ministers and partly due to the lack of accountability of ministers to the States as a whole and therefore to the electorate.
.
I do not believe that we can long continue with the present situation in which the people of Jersey have no effective say as to who will be the next Chief Minister and other Ministers.

The present electoral system means that once individuals have been elected to the States (which includes Senators for 6 years) they do not have to pay much attention to the views of the public until just before their next election date (if they are standing again). Furthermore, it is the members of the States who decide who will be the Chief Minister and the other ministers and the public have almost no say on this. It cannot be right that a person can be chosen as the Chief Minister without their popularity having been tested at a recent election.

On the other hand, a system in which the people of the Island would directly elect the Chief Minister would not work because the Chief Minister under a parliamentary democracy must generally command a majority in the States. Such a system belongs as part of a presidential system as exists in the U.S.A. and in France. I do not think that the people of Jersey would want such a system because it gives much too much power to one person.

Ultimately, if the people of Jersey want to have more say as to who actually governs
them, they will have to start supporting a form of politics which has room both for independent members and for group or party politics.

I am standing as an independent candidate and am very happy to work within the existing system, however, I would be equally happy to work under any system which included groups or parties.

Ten-month probe into child care services begins

Just how well Jersey is looks after its young people in care is being looked in a ten-month independent inspection.

The Social Work Inspection Agency has been called in and will begin its task with a series of talks for social workers.

Currently 80 children are beeing cared for by the States because their birth parents are unable to. Most of the children are with foster parents or are living with other family members or friends. Some are in residential homes.

The agency will inspect social workers and the social care services and will also look at other services like education, health and probation. The inspection is the first of its kind in Jersey and the results will be used to judge what improvements are made in future.

The inspection will use a variety of methods to judge how well children and young peoples needs are being met, including talking to children and young people for their views; surveys and interviews with foster carers and staff; self-evaluation by service providers; an examination of records and processes and visits to sites and facilities.

Deputy Anne Pryke, head of the Childrens Policy Group says that by the time children come into the care of the States. something has already gone wrong in their lives. 'It is absolutely essential that we do the best for them. We need to ensure that services are of the highest standard and that different agencies work well together and provide seamless support.'

The SWIA is an independent and impartial external agency, set up by the Scottish Government in 2005 to drive up standards and improve quality in social work services.

Agency boss Alexis Jay says the Jersey inspection will place a great deal of emphasis on the evidence gathered from people who use services. 'We are completely impartial with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of social work services, including those delivered in smaller Island communities. That means we are uniquely placed to provide informed comment on Jersey's services.'

An inspection report will be published in November 2011.

Was this weight of evidence?

Ian Evans..

Below is an e-mail sent by Chief Police Officer Graham Power QPM in response to an e-mail he had received from, shall we say “an interested party”. The recipient of the e-mail has requested that I do not include their e-mail in this Blog……..so I’ve REDACTED IT!! The e-mail has also been viewed by a number of politicians with an interest, which incidentally is growing.

For those of us who read the Blog Tony's Musings we are aware of the research, objectivity, impartiality, humour, satire and most importantly, in my opinion, his search for facts. He is meticulous with his research and does his utmost to inform his readers of “balanced facts”. Tony recently published a Blog about the 70% “redaction” of the Wiltshire Report.

Well the 70%, as Tony now knows might be a little “economical” and there is a strong chance that the true figure could be more than NINETY PER CENT REDACTED!

If this is correct, then the tax payer has paid well over a million quid and Ian Le Marquand is trying to convince anybody that will listen that he is being “fair” to Chief Officer Graham Power with less than TEN PER CENT of a report, after denying him a fair trial.

Anonymous said...

I was ready to show some humility to the Wiltshire Constabulary, believing that ILM and his cohorts had approved all the redacting, but after re-reading the Chief Officer’s e-mail, it reads to me as though Wiltshire have joined in with the redaction game.

Naturally, this is all truly alarming, if true, and just exposes, even further, what a sham this all is and what an utter Kangaroo Court ILM is conducting and expecting us all to swallow!

Probably the most frightening aspect of all is, if this is what can be done to the most Senior Police Officer -what have they - and what can they - do to us, the plebs?

We also must remember that the 4 ACPO Reports and the HMIC Reports scrutinizing Lenny Harper and Graham Power can be viewed in their entirety, thanks to Citizens Media (ACPO Reports) why are we only allowed to see less than TEN PER CENT of Wiltshire?

I might be thinking a little optimistic, (which is a very rare treat for me) and reading something that isn’t there (Graham Power’s e-mail below) but I could be forgiven for believing that Graham Power intends on publishing his defence somewhere along the line. It is reported to be in the region of SIXTY TWO THOUSAND words and up to a hundred pages long.

BBC Jersey is dumbing down. One of their new prime time programes is described by a presenter as a kind of Loose Women. I feel they are running scared and may even have been warned about content by London?

Let me bore you with an example. The Wilts summary of the evidence criticises media lines taken by Lenny. But when I search through the piles of paperwork I discover that a PC (name redacted) was tasked with researching Lenny’s broadcasts and producing a summary. In that exercise he failed to find any record of claims of buried bodies and the like. On the contrary he extracts quotes such as "there is no evidence that anyone was murdered or died at HDLG in these rooms but there is evidence of abuse there." (covered in my statement para 302).consequence?? this evidence is completely ignored by Wilts in their "report" because it does not fit their agenda.Again the selectively include negative evidence offered by a media consultant named (name redacted)..............but when I dig out his report from the files I find that he also quotes Lenny as saying "We have no allegations that anyone died or was murdered there."..................(my stat para 301.) result??...............again.....totally ignored in the Wilts report...............which is selective and biased enough before being further redacted by the Minister to make it look even worse. Only the more general availability of my statement can redress this balance."


Some States Members have attempted to work out how much of the "evidence" has been redacted they may not be aware that a massive redaction has already taken place before the second redaction.

At a very rough assessment the evidence made available to States Members is probably less than 10% of the total.

I hope that this note is helpful..
Regards.

Graham.

Deputy Daniel Wimberley: (a) provide members with the press statements released by the States of Jersey Police relating to any one of the major elements disputed during the Haut de la Garenne inquiry, in order, and the full recordings of audio and video interviews?

Senator Ian Le Marquand: (a) I have previously indicated to the Deputy of St Mary that I am not going to do this. The press statements are in the public domain and the Deputy of St Mary should do his own research.

And this is what Graham Power says

Let me bore you with an example. The Wilts summary of the evidence criticises media lines taken by Lenny. But when I search through the piles of paperwork I discover that a PC (name redacted) was tasked with researching Lenny’s broadcasts and producing a summary.

Now you would think that ILM would release all of Wiltshire seeing as it is so damning. But he wont just like he knows he cant reply to my email.

It would appear that the Wiltshire report was commissioned as a PR exercise to get certain people out of a hole.

Meet our new foreign minister

Jersey's new foreign minister Senator Freddie Cohen
JERSEY now has a foreign minister to promote the Island at Westminster and around the world.
Senator Freddie Cohen has been given the role because of his close relationships with several Members of Parliament.

The announcement comes following concerns that Jersey does not have an effective presence in London, something that was blamed for the Island’s failure to maintain the reciprocal health agreement.

rico sorda said...

Its very hard to keep up with developments as they are moving so fast.

First up, BBC Jersey

For many years the good old regulars have kept the Jersey phone-in alive. Roger Bara, Chris Stone and Chris Raynor have benefitted from the loyalty shown by these listeners and contributers, what happened this week was a complete disgrace. Ryan Morrison was happy enough to post the link to the changes online but the BBC didn't even have the courage to tell their listeners that the phone-in was being axed. It was plain embarrassing listening to Chris Rayner try and change the subject and give some awful excuse like, we are on the same number/ email.

What has happened, is happening, is the shutting down of the the peoples voice. They will now set the agenda and that is that.

VFC will be taking a proper look at this.

Talkback 6-7....... All the news on TV, cooking the Tea, The Soaps etc etc

Routier wants speeches down to 15mins etc etc

We are hurtling towards North Korea faster than people realise.

Freedy Cohen in as Foreign Minister

Philip Bailhache running for the States

Make no mistake; Between the Child Abuse Scandal, Economic Downturn and Stuart Syvret dragging the whole Jersey Judiciary into the spotlight there is panic out there.

Freedom said...

JEP Sat 15th January

BRITAIN’S highest court will hear how Jersey police broke the law in France, Holland and Belgium by bugging a hire car without permission to try to catch one of Europe’s biggest drugs barons.

All approved by Le Marquand and the Jersey Law Officers I do not in any way condone or support drug barons but the law of any country is the law and to deliberately flout it by sending Jersey police to gather evidence is totally wrong this is an example of a Government that will do anything legally or Illegally to get there own way

No wonder Le Marquand does not answer e mails that offend his sensibilities the man is a disgrace

Anonymous said...

Le Marquand had his first reality check at Fort Regent, Summer of 2009. Sad to see, but he obviously did not take it in.

He needs a much bigger reality check with a lot more disillusioned local interested people putting him on the spot, face to face, for a very important questions and answers session/ confrontation!?

But how do we get this from a man....

Who lives in a pure fantasy world and living in a bubble!!

Jan 2009 - ILM says there is not evidence of any bullying to Graham Power.

What's changed since then to cause him to revive the claim?

July 2009 - Operation Blast revealed. GP ordered some officers to keep secret dossier on politicians.

This would tie in with the later allegation of ILM of a culture of "we know best" especially if there was any of the officers who questioned whether they should be doing this.

Whether they did, and if they were told forcibly not to be GP would certainly allow the allegation of bullying to be made again, but until the Blast files are released in less edited form, we don't know.

rico sorda said...

Tony

Thanks for this comment. I believe this is the first time you have used speculation in defending Senator Le Marquand. Has there ever been any evidence made public that police were bullied into Operation Blast?

I quote Senator ILM

"I noticed a culture of bullying in certain areas and a culture of arrogance,’ said Senator Le Marquand. ‘The message coming from senior management tended to be “We are the expert professionals and we know better than you”, and that attitude was being passed down the force.’

I would say he is saying there was a more General Bullying culture.

Now look at that quote

What is he basing that on? What report?

My opinion Nothing

look forward to your view

AND SO THE SEED WAS SOWN

RICHARD WEBSTER
A short but important extract from that article is reposted here, just to illustrate how “journalists” are involved in the cover up of the abuse at Haut de la Garenne as well as other children’s Pindown homes:
“On 3 March, after a full month had passed, Jersey Evening Post reporter Diane Simon even ventured to ask during a press conference whether the skull fragment might turn out to be a red herring.
More than a month later, on 8 April, her question was partly vindicated when the police announced that scientists had been unable to date the fragment at all”

Wednesday 23 April 2008

To sum up, Richard Webster appears to be absolutely besotted in his quest to protect professionals who are accused of child abuse, and I just cannot help wondering why?

Read more on Zoompads blog. Very interesting and it looks like this Richard chap has left a nasty comment on her blog.

Written question for tomorrows states sitting


10. The Chief Minister will table an answer to the following question asked by the Deputy of St. Martin –

“With reference to the removal of part (d) from the Napier Terms of Reference will the Chief Minister inform Members –

(a) why this was considered necessary when the former Chief Officer of the States of Jersey Police had agreed to partake in the Review and, if he had not participated, would part (d) have been removed?

(b) what was to be achieved by deleting part (d) and what date in April 2010 was it decided?

(c) with whom did the Deputy Chief Executive consult before the decision was made and when was the Chief Minister advised?

(d) why the Deputy Chief Executive did not consult with the Deputy of St Martin beforehand or inform him at the time the decision was taken?

(e) why the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Executive ignored concerns raised by the Deputy of St. Martin regarding the possible deletion a month before the publication of the Report, and why no explanation relating to the deletion from the Terms of Reference has been offered?

(f) why the Chief Minister has not informed Members why part (d) was deleted and will he now agree to make a formal statement informing Members the reason this decision was taken?”

voiceforchildren said...

Rico.

The key word here "(b) what was to be achieved by deleting part (d)" is "achieved"

Remember the Napier Report only came about because Deputy Hill lodged a proposition last year, P9/2010 asking for a public committee of enquiry into the suspension of Graham Power QPM.

Terry Le Sueur managed to get that scuppered and came up with the Napier Review. So just what is Terry Le Sueur hoping to "achieve". Dropping part (d) from the Napier Review could only narrow the remit!

If Terry is hoping to "achieve" that the cat stays in the bag, well try to keep up Terry, it got out a long time ago. The sooner you and the "accredited" media accept that, the sooner we can all move on and start repairing the damage you and your "legal advisors" have caused the abuse survivors and the reputation of this once wonderful island.

The answers to the Deputy’s other questions are all contained within the PAC report itself, which
contains numerous evidence based examples of uncontrolled spending and funds expended with
no apparent accounting officer.
As regards the exact figures of the spend, the figures are contained within the States Report and
Accounts themselves produced by the Treasury and signed by PWC and the Deputy Treasurer. It
is not the PAC’s job to produce the Accounts, it is our job to review them. If figures within the
Accounts are missing or unclear, then this is a question for the Treasury to answer.

Well talk about passing the buck..does anyone answer!

"The document referred to by the Deputy of St Martin in August was R10. It has
subsequently been found to have had a reproduction error in it. When the Council of
Ministers approved the appointment of Mr Napier and agreed that R10 could be
presented to the States, the Terms of Reference as approved had para (d) included.
When the Terms of Reference were then transmitted to the Greffe for reproduction,
the second page which contained para (d) was accidentally omitted.
(f) The deletion of the paragraph referred to by the Deputy of St Martin has been fully
investigated and Mr. Napier who undertook the review has confirmed that its
deletion had no bearing on his investigation into the Suspension of the previous
Chief Officer of Police. I too am fully satisfied that the deletion of this paragraph
did not in any way hamper Mr. Napier’s review and I do not consider it necessary to
take the matter any further and I will not be making a Statement"

“When the Terms of Reference were then transmitted to the Greffe for reproduction, the second page which contained paragraph (d) was accidentally omitted.”

If this is the case and a whole page was accidentally omitted, surely there must have been more on that page other than paragraph (d) and if so, what other “terms of reference” were omitted from that PAGE? If you have sight of the page which contained paragraph (d) and other items on that page had been addressed in the Napier report, than you know that the CM is lying through his teeth! Just a thought!

Another way to get to the truth regarding the accidental omitting, is to interview the person from the Greffe asking whether part d was lost at the "transmission" stage or did the person from the Greffe just forget to "reproduce" it?

Well I'm just doing a quick little post before the serious one on Sunday.

I would like to thank the " Farce Blog" for putting me up in lights. If no one has seen it go check it. I think I look rather handsome in the photo and may I only whisper it

" I did rather well".

I also look so young

You see Jon, you don't need to go on those cheap Filipino web sites and use Senator Mcleans " ship too me".............. go Local

What started out as a bet with an ex- girlfriend as to who could get the most dates turned into something unexpected and really cool.I met some wonderful people on the site. I would recommend it to anyone who does not like that whole town drunken mess thing " don't be shy give it a try". A nice meal and good conversation is the way forward. Its funny, one of the things they say is don't use your real name but like my blogging, no point hiding.. Do I get Royalties from the site?

The reason for all my publicity? Sundays blog is my guess and the questions I have been asking.

Let me also say I found it bloody funny. The reason for this is that I had a phone call from the States Of Jersey Police on Thursday morning.

The whole 30 minute conversation concerned the "Farce Blog". After a very good chat and like a Genie rubbing the Lamp "easy jon, I said Lamp" I appear as the front page. I swear sometimes I feel like I have a Guardian Angel. I have nothing to Hide that post made me laugh and it's all about meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee sorry Stuart LOL

What went on between me and the Police will not be discussed so no point asking but I thank them for contacting me.

Why would someone want to keep attacking me for helping the Jersey Abuse Survivors? not the only person asking that question..

Jersey is a very Strange Place

Let me tell you this

I will not give up my work, you will not be able to put me off my work, I have a sense of humor + don't give a Shit I really don't so you just carry on
