Deputy Power forced to resign







Deputy Power


Statement of Resignation as Housing Minister.


At a meeting to-day, the Council of Ministers has expressed a view that I should resign as Housing Minister and I now do so.

The background is this.  On the 5th August 2010, I visited the States Building on or about lunchtime to pick up some files I had left in my locker.  There were workmen in this area. I noticed a printed e-mail document sitting face up on one of the printers nearest the wall. Because it was face up, it had already been read. The front page appeared to be an e-mail between the Deputy of Grouville to Deputy Judy Martin, dated the 3rd August.  The following pages appeared to be, at first glance, an e-mail to the Deputy of Grouville from Mr. Stuart Syvret. I do not remember the date of this e-mail. I do remember the detail. 

The substance of the e-mail was what appeared to be an alleged attempt to reclaim money from the Deputy with what appeared to be legal threats by her former partner, Mr. Stuart Syvret.  If it was genuine, it was yet another example of a ruthless attack on someone else by Mr. Syvret and the Deputy of Grouville was being added to a long line of people that he has attacked over a three year period.

In that instant, I was not sure what to do as there were workmen in and out of the building.  I quickly scanned the document and e-mailed it to myself. I put the e-mail in my bag.   My feelings in those minutes were at best, confused.  Why was this document lying around?  Why had it been printed?  Was it genuine?
  
Had it been left there on purpose and did someone have a motive to leave it lying around?  Was it in some way left there to assist the Deputy of Grouville?

I took it back to my office and subsequently posted it that afternoon to the Data Protection Commissioner with a hand written note on a compliment slip.

That afternoon, I then e-mailed the scanned document to one person and asked them their view of the document.  I was then advised to delete the scanned document and did so. My mistake was this act of scanning and forwarding to a third party.

I have been found to be in breach of a regulation of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2005 by the Data Protection Commissioner.  Consequently, I have been found to be in breach of the Ministerial Code of Conduct.

I accept that I made a mistake and breached a regulation on this part of the law and I now realise how easy it is to do so.  I have left confidential Housing documents on a printer in the same room in the past and have had to rush back to retrieve them.  I realise that I should have simply shredded the document there and then.  

However, the contents were, in my opinion, salacious and I did want the Data Protection Commissioner to see it.  I did not want to leave the e-mail where it was.   I made no attempt at a cover-up.
My recipient has assured me that they deleted their copies of the offending document the next day and that no copy was forwarded to any other person.
The fact that it ended up on internet sites in August may have been due to the fact that another party may have picked it up between the 3rd, 4th  and 5th August 2010 in the States computer room, where it may have been lying for over 24 hours.

Any overt threat against a serving States Member is unacceptable and while I have made a mistake in this case and regret my actions, I am glad that I did send the offending e-mail to the Data Protection Commissioner and that it has been investigated and concluded.

The threat of a vote of no confidence in the Council of Ministers is now averted and I hope that their fears are allayed.  For my part, I find it interesting that the Council of Ministers were so worried about this threat that they lost confidence in me and regarded me as a threat.  

To be honest, I would have reservations serving on a Council of Ministers that would roll over at the slightest whiff of trouble and e-cordite.  I was never one of the inner sanctum on the Council of Ministers.  As this is an election year, the present Council of Ministers have a chance to reinforce their ranks and attempt to put a more compliant pair of hands at Housing as long as that candidate respects the Housing Department and the Population Office.

A lot of innovative and good work has been done within the Housing Department with me in the past two years and it is in good shape to carry on.  The Housing Transformation Programme is now on full steam ahead and the team at Housing is a great bunch of men and women.  I apologise to them for leaving after just over two years of work together.  I also thank my Assistant Minister for his loyalty and hard work over the last 8 months.

The worry related to this whole episode affected my health throughout November and December 2010. While I am now fully recovered, it is with a great deal of relief and a clear conscience that I return to my first duties as a Deputy of St. Brelade.

And we all know where that leaked email ended up.

Is he not facing Data Protection charges?

Stuart Syvret and Carolyn Labey get their gaf turned upside down by 10 cops. Stuart Syvret gets locked up for 7 hours and hauled through the courts on data protection charges. Sean Power steals other peoples personal data leaks it to a kiddie fiddlers blog and gets a slap on the wrist jeeez you couldn't make it up.

Oh lets be honest here. There is absolutely nothing credible in his excuses he just acted because he had some dirt and decided to spread the word.

He was probably rubbing his hands together in glee, not that I agree with what was said in the email but he cant excuse the real reason behind the leaking of the email. That is to discredit Stuart Syvret as much as possible so that his readers, yes his readers, will have more reason to discredit his points and legal actions.

Strangely enough though, why did someone print it and leave it in the open, methinks they wanted some mug to leak it rather than do it themselves so it appears there is a coward in the midst of all this.

WHY DID HE SCAN IT?

Anonymous said...

Just been reading the link, forgot about the hate messages but then I guess the farce get their fair share too.

What is interesting is that the farce owner or at least instigator of the blog went for election a while ago, no wonder he had his contacts willing to post on his blog site. I wonder if his failed election fueled the fire to his hatred of anyone that doesnt tow the party line. Sour grapes springs to mind.

Anonymous said...

Why did he scan it?

The answer is obvious, he wanted to leak it to the child abuse deniers blog site so as to help discredit SS. The daft thing is that SS was going on a data protection court case himself so the stupid fool should have known better. He thought he would get away with it until his friend, oooo friend stuck it on the internet and it all went t.ts up!! Lol Deputy Power, you have really made a fool of yourself.

rico sorda said...

On the 5th August Deputy Power finds the Email and forwards it to a friend

On the 6th August this email turns up on the Farce Blog

What I would be demanding from the Deputy if I was Deputy Labey was who did you leak it too.

Now this is the intro from the Farce Blog on this Posting ( I keep everything on archive )

Comments by the HDLG Farce Blog Team

There follows below a fascinating, funny, sad and at times hilarious insight into the world of Stuart Syvret. We cannot say how these e-mails came into our possession. In order to protect identities, there are large sections of the content excluded or redacted. This world would be a twilight zone for most of us. We have made some comments on the sections we have published in a light-hearted type of approach as we felt that was the only way of dealing with this content.

We have States Members and others that have seen the full e-mail content and I am sure they will verify the content if needed. Indeed, Mr. Syvret himself may, if he lodges any of this nonsense with the Royal Court.


States Members and others? in the space of 24 hours now watch the interview with Deputy Power on CTV

CTV

My guess is that more than one person was copied in

How many people just happen to find something and then scan it?

Get real.

To then email this found collection of emails to data protection commissioner makes no sense.

Were they found on the floor. If they fell off a desk why not carefully place them back.

I am sure Mr. Power would know where CL sat in the States of Jersey he could of easily handed them over to the person they belonged to.

Anonymous said...

Furthermore, if anyone was concerned about the email, it would be the recipient, why did S.Power think it was his duty to bring it to the attention of the data protection office!!! (not that I believe this bit, sounds like a get out for being caught out!!)

I read that posting, the merits of the content are not for anyone to pass judgement on, other than the two people concerned. Why did he not just phone one of the deputies to tell them he had a copy? Perhaps the finding of them is also another story to cover up the truth!

S.Power has shown himself up to be a complete fool any even worse, having resigned over the issue then refuses to apologise, an even bigger act of buffoon.

The real story today was the refusal to hold the promise public enquiry, but both need good airing, along with Deputy Le Claire's complaint about hacking into States Members emails, or maybe this one is linked to S.Power, who knows!!

If the email was sent from the States building by Sean Power to himself and perhaps CCd on to others.

It will be interesting to see if Deputy Power gets the Syvret treatment, not only by facing criminal charges, but getting slammed by the "accredited" media.

I have sent Deputy Power an e-mail asking him for an interview.

Anonymous said...

The Farce Blog's days are numberd. Finally the whole sorry tale of feable faux establishment spin and deciept are exposed. There were other States members who were also sent copies and I know for stone cold fact that one of them was handing printed copies around for anybody that he thought might be interested. Does that States member's distribution of confidential information also constitute a breach of data protection law? I think this one could run and run. Power's not the only one who has made himself unelectable in the Autumn IMO.

GeeGee said...

Well, well Rico - quite a day! Deputy Power's Irish blarney did not convince in any way, shape or form on CTV this evening, indeed I did not believe a word of his 'excuses'.

His behaviour was shameful indeed, and he has absolutely no reason to have done what he did apart from sheer mischief making. Whatever the rights and wrongs of 'that' e-mail were, it was a personal matter between two people and in no way connected to political matters and indeed none of his business at all. He then has the gall to place all the blame on Stuart!

Clearly he set out to cause as much discomfort to the parties as possible, breaking Data Protection Laws in the process (which beggars the question as to whether he will now face prosecution as did SS). His misguided actions resulted in a most unpleasant outpouring against Deputy Labey on the now exclusive 'by invitation' farce blog.

It really does make one wonder what part he had to play in this blog, or who his contact was there. Yet another politician alongside the 'no enquiry now' CoM who have proved they are not trustworthy all in one day!

re:The real story today was the refusal to hold the promise public enquiry

i agree but Rico put a post on SS's site to talk about Sean the power on here so I have only talked about Sean the power.

I think it is an absolute disgrace what our COM published today and does nothing to give me or people I know, work, old school friends, pub mate etc any confidence in them whatsoever. Oh hold on I must speak for 99.9% of Jersey with that comment!!!!

I only can think of one word that describes them with enough disgust that I feel at the moment. Using terms such as buffoons, idiots, muppets just doesnt quite cut the mustard. For them lot I can only resort to the worst derogatory term I know of and wont type it but leave it to your imagination, it doesnt take much to imagine it.

Has Ozouf thrown Power to the wolves? Certainly he was never part of the inner core; he lacked two vital qualities – money and class.

However, it’s a convenient excuse to blame the Prince when the 40 shilling freeholders of St Brelade seek explanation. Ambition was enough for him to join the government. Power would have been a fine Housing Minister as the previous incumbent was, well, er, unsuitable. Who will take up this vital role? Is there anyone left in the Ozouf government with talent?

Is it by-election time again I ask? One every six months or so is good for the soul. I do so love campaigning in the West; St Brelade is such a warm and friendly parish, its political representatives so varied – Commies, Papists, a eunuch and God’s teeth, a woman!

Sean

You did leak the email lets not mess around here. You also copied in 1 or more people and in less than 24 hours that email ended up on the Farce Blog and finished you as housing minister.

One big shame in all this, is, that I heard you were a very good housing minister.

What I find galling is the way you blame Stuart for your actions, that is the cowards way out. Cant anyone in this government just put their hands up and say ' you know what I fu*ked up there' this is what I did but not then try and make it all Stuarts fault.

And what is all this

"Why was this document lying around? Why had it been printed? Was it genuine?"

Probably because someone had printed it and left it lying around. No big mystery in that.

You messed up Deputy, but the real evil is where it ended up. If that is your doing then how sad is that

Hi Bug and others on VDI,

Before I offer further information on the story about Deputy Power, I have done a none scientific poll amongst friends and business associates regarding Wikileaks. Simple question. Is wikileaks a force for good ? dragging out into the open ..................... information.

Everyone unbelievable said yes it is a force for good with one person saying there should be probably 5% of information ( military etc ) reserved.

Have Government cooked there own goose? have they been honest with the masses ? Do we trust them ?

There is a problem, and its a big problem the internet and mobile phones are the new information highways not the local paper or radio using selective editing.

Is your hospital working as well as it could and should ? why are they not giving out the statistics, what are they afraid of ? The internet will give a similar size organisation as a bench mark. Is that what scares them?

We all know that detailed information makes people accountable. Oh cripes and suffer me socks we cannot have that. Actually now we can. Its called the internet, support it and the ( sometimes very brave ) people who give us the opportunity to learn and comment.
Back to an elected politician being paid by the people, but thinks its ok to circulate private e-mails to discredit other people.

He was looking like he could have been a good housing minister and that is a shame because at this crucial time in Jersey's economic history we need every states member we can putting thier shoulder to the pump. IMO he made the fatal mistake of looking at his own personal political interests before the electorates. Thing is when he started out he was very wet behind the ears and was openly quite shocked about the way the states went about thier business in the members room. But I think he quickly learnt that if you want to get ahead in Jersey politics then you have to climb the greasy Ozouf pole. He 'slipped' and found out the hard way that there was nobody there to catch him. Let's hope there's a moral in this story which the foot stampers can easily decode.

Rico,

I have taken ownership of the Planet Jersey forum and intend to add new features in the weeks ahead. There will be new mods, admins and technical staff drawn from a cross section of society. There will also be a new homepage containing news content and more in-depth reporting on cultural, political, social and environmental issues supported by video content and in time Twitter and Facebook feeds will be added.

The intention is obviously to widen the readership and grow the membership in this election year and I hope that by focussing on important grass roots community issues we will be able to reflect the views of a wide range of people who are interested in Jersey, whether they live here or not.

Moderation will also be much more evident than in the past and house rules, especially regarding personal insults and abuse will not be tolerated. There has been a polarisation of political debate in the past which has almost killed off any chance of informed and reasonable discussion on the forum. I will be keeping a close eye on this in the future and any transgressions will result in lengthy or permanent bans.

Planet Jersey's news team will strive not to display any overt political bias - we will strive for balance in our reporting and intend to ask searching questions right across the political spectrum and offer our readership informed critiques of the ministerial and scrutiny functions. Our intention ultimately is to be the central online news portal for Jersey but we realise there is a long way to go before that can be realised and that we need your support to make that happen.

And to pay for all this we are going to carry advertising and rate cards will be available in the weeks ahead.

Enjoy Planet Jersey and if you haven't posted anything for a while please do so in the next month as I will be deleting old accounts that have not been active for the last 120 days. Many old threads that are also deemed no longer relevant will also be archived. And rest assured your personal member information is secure and that Planet Jersey will be registered with Data Protection.

There's also plenty threads and comments on Deputy Sean Power which make for very interesting reading in light of recent events

Best wishes to you and all your readers.

Things are moving very fast over here. The panic that is out there over the loss of the Senators seats for this years election is getting comical.. So who next will be on the front of the JEP demanding they will be returned?

Change the make up of the Government at the next election and then start undoing the work the present Cover-up elite have done.

This is going to be fully exposed.

At sometime a very bright light will be shone towards the Data Protection Department.

I just saw it lying there, what should I do? There are builders everywhere. It is in paper form, should I just pick it up, put it in my bag and give it back to its owner. Oh no, I glanced at it, what should I dO? Yes I will scan it and copy it then email it to myself, why have I done that? The private email between two people breaking up is of such importance I send it Data Protection, not only that, but because of the great gravity of that private email I send it to a third party who I trust is not the owner of the Frace Blog or a close associate. Damn, less than 24 hours later it's in bloom and on the Farce Blog. Ok what do I do?

Two quick questions;

1) Did the CID and Data Protection check of the Planet Jersey promised by Adrian Walsh ever take place?

2) Is Adrian Walsh in any way still connected with Planet Jersey?

Anonymous said...

Why is there a requirement to register with Data Protection, are you intending to hold more than someone's name? ie: address or data of birth etc..?

Problem with registering means, if it falls into the wrong hands at some later date, all information held could be misused. Say, something happened and the owner was threatened with being sued and the action was a serious possibility who huge financial consequences, with the only option to transfer ownership to settle.

As Ole Razzy has stated, he has access to the database with all prior postings.

In answer to the first question I'm certain is no. If I recall rightly they were offered the opportunity as were data protection but both parties declined. I was shown the admin screens by the previous owner and saw how the functionality of the site worked but was not shown, nor would I have wanted to be shown, any personal information.

Part 2 is a very straight forward no. The site was purchased for a nominal fee and ownership, hosting and domain have all been transfered to me.

I hope this is helpful. If you want to ask me any more questions please do so on the forum. I will be setting up a new account under my own name later this evening.

Ole Razzy said...

Answering anon's questions in order;

"Why is there a requirement to register with Data Protection, are you intending to hold more than someone's name? ie: address or data of birth etc..?"

Currently there isn't strictly speaking but the intention is for PJ to evolve over time into a news resource in addition to a forum. For that reason, and also to give members comfort that the site adhere's to the DP laws, I have today made the online application.

The only information held on members is the user name they choose, the email account they register with and the IP address.

"Problem with registering means, if it falls into the wrong hands at some later date, all information held could be misused. Say, something happened and the owner was threatened with being sued and the action was a serious possibility who huge financial consequences, with the only option to transfer ownership to settle."

Well I think this is way too hypothetical. I understand your concerns but you need to be realistic. We are; which is why we are taking every precaution to ensure that members are protected. Its a two way street.

"As Ole Razzy has stated, he has access to the database with all prior postings."

Everbody can see the archive its on full display. The only posts we can't see are the ones that were deleted by the previous owner. I intend to delete a lot more in the coming days as many are now obsolte. The whole site needs tidying up.

The point is we are doing this properly because we want people to feel comfortable. If your'e still not happy then that's your choice and we repect it.

And its worth pointing out that the blog owners who have kindly allowed me the opportunity to explain the change of ownership all know me personally. Ask yourself this simple question "Would they allow me the platorm to talk about the changes if they didn't think it was being properly managed?"

Channel TVs interview with a surprised Advocate Philip Sinel was interesting so far as he has questioned and very serious the Data Protection Officers decision not to take the 'Blatant infringement' of Data Protection. He actually mentioned this fact twice and heavy stressed the point. Perhaps the e-mail Deputy Power sent to them would not be in the interest of the Data Protection Officer?

Are we the general public being told that any Tom, Dick or Harry has open acces to the States of Jersey communications room!!!. Hell I might just mosy on down there and find out who nominated Frank, who killed JFK and what really is going on in Area 51.

Stealing yes, how was he to know if someone had not long left them and like one of his stories, was on their way back having realised they had left them behind, to find then had been stolen!!

When someone has to try and give credence to back up their story, I start to doubt it. Power had to make his story sound reasonable, ie: people do leave things behind, hey even I've done it. Why? to cover up the fact that it could only have been leaked by him to the Farcical site and/or to divert attention away from the fact he may of obtained them from somewhere else by some other means!!!

As I say, when someone comes up with ridiculous reasons for the situation they find themselves in, alarm bells ring out very loud indeed.

Funny that. My initial reaction - if I'd even felt the need to involve myself - would have been to immediately contact one of the addresees and explain what I'd found. As would that of everyone else I've spoken to about this.

It certainly would never have crossed my mind to scan the email, email it to myself, then email it to a friend.

Power should resign from politics completely, immediately.

I’m a constituent of Mr Power (La Moye),
I’m not sure that I can trust this man! He has broken the law and gets away with it, and then makes a counter claim against the states.
What is going on?

Come on Power tell us, start singing, who was the third party you sent the data to?

Anonymous said...

Why isn't it a breach of the Data Protection law every time the content of the stolen email is mentioned? The very fact that it involved persons X and Y is something that the law was designed to protect against! Each time the media mentions it, or Sean Power mentions it, or it is brought up in the States, is a DP offence. The content is irrelevant - it doesn't make any difference to the extent of the crime, it's just muck spreading to say what the email was about, the public don't have a right to know what was in the private, stolen, email. Ms Martins is being incredibly selective, as usual.

I assume that Power condemns the posting on the Farce site!?

Having accepted he made a mistake, why not apologise to Deputy of Grouville, as he appears to so concerned about a legal threat on her, he does not phone her!!! so concerned about her being attacked in such a legal manner he showed it to other people, but does not wish to apologise, so strange, seems to me that it was vindictive and the rest a pack of lies!!!

What Power has done, is known as stealing by finding. He should be prosecuted and thrown out of the States.

Strange that S.Power wants to inform people of the content of the private emails, which is a breach of Data Protection Law, but not tell us who he sent the copy to for advice (which would not be breaking any Data Protection law).

The guy cannot be trusted with private information that was not for his attention, I do not believe he can be trusted with any government information. In fact how much of his daily work does he send to the mystery person to give him advice on?

'Ms Martins is being incredibly selective, as usual.'

She most certainly is, or is the final decision not of her making? If she were doing her job properly other States Members would have appeared in the Police Court, but no, examples are made of those who do not toe the Establishment line. Just think Shona Pitman and Geoff Southern.

It just becomes more and more obvious every time something like this occurs.

That aside, those who say 'well Stuart Syvret should be investigated for his e-mail'. This really does not enter into the equation for a couple of reasons. Firstly, this was not a political matter, but a personal exchange between two people who's relationship had broken up. Therefore it was of no threat to anybody or anything to do with politics. Who can honestly say that when a relationship has gone wrong they do not do or say something in hurt, anger or the heat of the moment?

No point asking you Deputy Power, you obviously do not have the capacity to either apologise to Deputy Labey or tell the truth.

The evil diatribe that spewed forth on 'that' blog must have been truly distressing for Deputy Labey and her family, and Deputy Power is looking for sympathy for having been 'ill' over all this.

Secondly, Stuart's disclosure was in the public interest (or not if you are Ms Martins or Magistrate Shaw). There was nothing of public interest in this information which was sneakily gotten, and even more sneakily used.

What is it with some politicians that they just cannot tell the truth, but are not convincing liars either?

Deputy Sean Power will not be prosecuted for the Data Protection Law breach because he accepted an ENFORCEMENT BREACH.

Hang on a minute. It is bad enough that a personal e-mail between two people had been “picked up” by a States member, copied and sent out to all and sundry thus breaking the data protection law, but, part of the contents of that e-mail also contained my personal home address which is ex-directory. Once posted on the HDLGFB my name was added to my address further down in the comments section thus identifying my whereabouts which made my blood boil. I am ex directory for a very good reason and have been for many, many years. How the hell is SP getting away with this?

is-his-story-a-cover-up said...

Deputy Sean Power and what he was not sure about, at lunch time on Thursday 5th August 2010:-

Fact: Because someone makes an assumption “Because it was face up, it had already been read.” does not make it a fact.

[Some pages were, “at first glance an email”, not sure why he had to include that bit as he continues to refer to them as an email, addressed to the Deputy of Grouville with the sender being Stuart Syvret.]

Fact: He does not know if the email was genuine

Fact: He obviously knew they were not for him, but decided to read the private papers.

Fact: He states the names on the private correspondence and speculates on its content
even though he is not sure it is genuine and in so doing, effectively accentuates the breach of Data Protection Law.

Fact: In an attempt to justify his actions at the time, he rather bizarrely attempts to justify his actions by further conjecture.

Fact: After reading the papers, he is not sure what to do with them, he did what he thought was best under such circumstances, he put the papers into his bag (at least out of sight from workmen), but then went to the trouble of scanning them first and then emailing them to himself. This was all done in an instance!

Fact: He states he was confused, so confused that he was wondering 'Had it been left there to assist the Deputy of Grouville?', although earlier in his statement he states 'an e-mail to the Deputy of Grouville from Mr. Stuart Syvret.'. [ I am not sure how these two statements stand up, nor why rather than speculate he did not phone the Deputy of Grouville ]

Fact: After ensuring it was not left around for any workman to read (further speculation), he takes the original back to his office and posts it to the Data Protection Commissioner. [ does not elaborate the reason for doing that rather than phoning the Deputy of Grouville ]

Fact: Later that afternoon, he e-mails the document (copy of the email he had scanned), to one person who he has not named, to ask for their view on the private correspondence, that had nothing to do with him, to ask their view. [We are led to believe this person then advised to delete the scanned document and he did so, I say led to believe, as that is how it flows, unless he told the Data Protection Commissioner what he was going to do, I doubt anybody would have known.]

Fact: He accepts his mistake was this act of scanning and forwarding to a third party.

Fact: He realises now!! how easy it is to leave confidential documents on a printer in the same room as he found the ones he scanned, because he has done it. [ I assume he was lucky that someone had not shredded them as that is what he thinks is the right thing to do - so why all the speculation]

Fact: The contents were meant to be confidential, the content was no reason for his actions. [ his opinion was of no significance without being party to the background facts of which only the recipient would have knowledge of. His concern, however misguided it may have been did not extend to phoning the Deputy of Grouville]

Fact: He could not accept he made a mistake without unnecessarily naming those included in the confidential emails/document, but keeps the name of the recipient of the confidential document that should never have been seen by this person, a mystery.

Fact: He speculates as to the reason why the document ended up on a internet site [of which he has been noted as contributor with some posts on it.]

Fact: He is glad he sent the e-mail (which he describes as offending) to the Data Protection Commissioner. [ I guess he must be glad he did so because he has had to resign as a Senator or was he glad to include that paragraph to disclose he found the confidential document that had nothing to do with him offending, so offending and so concerned, he will not even apologise to the Deputy of Grouville, for copying her property and sending it to third parties]

is-his-story-a-cover-up said...

part (2)

Fact: He states his health was affected throughout November and December 2010, because, as he stated “My mistake was this act of scanning and forwarding to a third party.” and he stated “I made no attempt at a cover-up.” [ So he quite clearly bought it upon himself - whereas, the Deputy of Grouville does not appear to agree with his version of events and as he will not apologise to her, whose interest was he looking after with his actions? ]

Data Protection is there to ensure that anyone who holds personal information on customers, clients, patients etc.. have security in place to ensure it not open to abuse. I did not think that they had the right to read private correspondence between two people no matter what the contents, was this a breach of the Data Protection?, and how did he think they could get involved ?.

A couple of questions Mr Power & Mr TLS, as I'm sure you read this blog, or read leaked reports of this blog!

Mr Power: Did you refuse to name the third party recipient of your e-mail, when Mr TLS asked you who it was? If you did refuse - You should resign as a deputy. If he did not ask, did you, with your self-professed total honesty, voluntarily give him the name? If not, you should resign as a deputy. Which is it?

Mr TLS: Did you ask Mr Power who the 3rd party recipient was? If yes, will you ensure that the Data Protection authorities follow this up with the same zeal as applied to Mr Syvret? If he did refuse, do you support his remaining as a deputy?

If you did not bother to ask, what the hell are you doing as Chief Minister in the first place !!!!! Which is it?

I assume that the Data Protection Commissioner will be charging the owners of that Farce blog, as they published this private document on their blog. Any police investigation should discover the source.

Certainly the tom toms are beating in St Brelade. There will be an election and the sooner the better as it’s the only way to clear the air.

The AG & Co were happy to fine the Southern ten grand and his girl a little less because she had diminished responsibility, but there cant be one rule for them and another for us. Anyway Power is expendable. He was never an insider for the COM. It’s a warning to the likes of the nice, but not so ,,, Mr Green who wants to be a Minister. Ozo must be desperate. Everyone is leaving he sinking ship. Better grab what you can and fast.

Rico,

The POEM is offensive because it was written by THE TIMES against Daniel O'Connel (Google him and learn) an Irish Nationalist.

I too have Irish blood but not Gaelic. The other half - Presbyterian, like WOLF TONE (Google him and learn) a Protestant leader of the Irish Rebellion of 1798 against the Crown.

The Poem is designed to embarass the Power. ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR. Would they show us any mercy if we were in the same predicament. Would they give us quarter? They have oppressed us to long for hirelings and traitors to be given the benefit of the doubt. Did the AG have any qualms about fineing Geoff and Shona? And yet the pedos get off free because they are well connected and its bad for business. One law for us and another for them.

The Times are a changeing.

Post if you wish, its just to advise you. Those like Power who tarry with ambition cannot now complain when their mates throw them to the howling wolves. It should be a lesson to the not so green, Mr Green. What he does, he does at his peril.

We hear that They are desperate for candidates. Not surpising. Stay away unless you are ready for a mauling.

We have them on the run, but never understimate them when cornered.They will be vicious. But a dog deserves a dogs death.

Sorry to disappoint you Rico.

The answer is no and while I resent the allegation, I suppose it is to be expected that you guys are all fishing to find out who these posters are on HDLGF blog.

Let me explain

The thing that runs the fast Blog is off his head. It is not a right wing blog but a diary of a madman. I have found it fascinating reading. I have read every post and every comment so I could save it for a rainy day.

There are Two

One writes 95% of all the comments the other sometimes writes the guest postings but not much more. The actual blog has its roots in Planet Jersey.

He will be taking his blog down today for one reason, Data Protection don't work at the weekend. Up it goes on a Friday night down it goes on a Sunday evening.

The thing that makes me laugh so much is that he thinks he is invisible and Anonymous and even if he wanted to stop he cant, he is addicted.

The Internet is some peoples only social outlet

"We will differ on that because I was a critic of Lenny Harper before he even was announced as in charge of the enquiry. Personally I think the only person who discredited the investigation was Harper himself. He was the one who was ripped to bits by a Sunday Newspaper for knowingly withholding information.

I think some people have truely ignored the facts here and why can't a member of the public question the fact that the remains of a dead child ended up being a piece of coconut?

It is almost like saying people cannot ask that."

What if there is no third party and the stolen document was only delivered to the DPO

Anonymous said...

Rico,

Thanks for that explanation. I have a few thoughts that I might share.

The relationship with Planet Jersey is interesting and needs explored. I viewed the site recently and noticed that politics has been banned, in the sense that discussion is about everything else but that. In fact, its becoming like BBC Radio Jersey, which in now safely in the hands of a new editorial team intent on keeping things safely right-wing and pro-government. In fact they are the government Voice, I forgot to say. All dissent, like the mid-day phone-in programme has been silenced by virtue of removing the opportunity to express opinion. Listeners are fed a diet of safety concerns, parish issues, religious types and small business; banished are the voices of the poor, the working class, and the elderly (incidentally,its over 50 target audience).

I digress. Back to Planet Jersey, which seems to be following the same BBC Radio Jersey line. How can that be? Is there a connection? No mention there of PowerGate or the gathering campaign in St Brelade for his immediate resignation as a Deputy. There are allegations that the email was not found on the photocopier but came from elsewhere by other means and other sources. Perhaps the lady Deputies will explain their anxiety if it is true. Put up or shut up as they say on the streets around Pommona Lane. Power is playing the innocent victim of the evil Prince, when in fact he was sacked for an intelligence disinformation operation that went wrong. No innocent I am afraid. That should be made clear to the, as yet undecided, burghers of St Brelade.The calls for resignation will intensify.

I wonder what is the relationship between the Right Wing Farce blog and the government? Someone has to pay the electric bill to run a computer and mobile phone?

Cant say i recognise it but i do remember a very funny bbc moan in when the thing phoned up to complain about being persecuted on ss blog despite what he had allegedly been up to on the planet jersey site. If i remember right he had been sending nasty emails, finding out where people work etc. Correct me if wrong or fill in the blanks if i have missed much.

Thing tried to sound gutted and sorry for himself but lets face it crocodile tears and all that. So the thing continues to sit there of a lonely evening knocking back stella issuing the same vague tough guy that he is anonymous threats on mainly his own bogsite. In the things spare time it sits patiently awaiting any news on ctv and jep that it can put in a comment from a mulitude of peronalties (disorders) all either have abuse investigation in common or it has a nasty habbit of still getting its grubby comment included. Rico being his favourite but vfc and planet jersey members get a mention now and then.

To wrap it all up its very ironic that the things blog contains so many get a life rico posts. Haha too stupid to understand that tho.

Planet Jersey is in good hands and there is a thread on the 'powergate' issue. The old PJ had one problem, the owner allowed the thing to drag it into the gutter. You can discuss what you like on PJ, if you have an issue sign up and start a tread on it.

I agree about BBC Jersey

What I love about the "thing" is this. On his Blog he now thinks he can just post this

Time to Move on
Dear regulars,

We said at the end of last year that this subject had been exhausted and it was time to shortly move on.

Well we feel that time is now here as we cannot foresee much more publicity within the public domain on the HDLGMF.

We are in the process of building a new Blog which will not feature anything to do with Haut de la Garenne or its related characters but will concentrate solely on political debate in the run up to the October elections.

This includes analysis of work by Ministers to date and views by people in the know with regard to their thoughts about Jersey's future.

Subject matters including taxation, offshore finance, the wealthy, the poor, unemployment, housing and anything else of political concern will be discussed.

We will also be linking up other Forums/Blogs which we think are not mono subjective but bring up valid points.

So watch this space as there is more to follow shortly.

Thank you
