End of Year Blog - Part 2









"NO STOPPING"




THE FINAL BLOG POSTING OF 2011




The work for 2012 has already started.  




The Matt Tapp Files  & The Committee of Enquiry will feature heavily at the turn of the year.




All the serious separate  issues running  headlong into one big crossroads. 




The failure of Child Protection in Jersey that led to decades of Abuse in the State Run Care Homes. There was a serious failure and no one wants to take any blame for what and is going on. I have explained why the 'CoE'  is so important and must be brought forward with a very robust terms of reference. Lets also be honest and say that this CoE is about as welcome as the plague. They, the real power in Jersey, don't want it at any cost.  Remember back in 2007 when Stuart Syvret stood up in the States and said that if he was asked in the States if he had faith in the Jersey Child Protection Apparatus  the answer would be no. That one statement set off a chain of events that is still being felt now. 




At the time no one new that the SOJP were investigating Child Abuse in Jersey. 




What I find most interesting about  Stuarts case against the Chief Minister is that it goes to the heart of the very matters that concern us  about the agencies who were responcable for Child Protection. We even had two Senior members of the SOJP leaving meetings because of what they were hearing and logged their concerns at the station. One was non other than the former Chief Of Police Graham Power QPM.



Now you would have thought that the former Chief Minister would have had this out in open court with everyone having their say and the evidence heard, but no, he was advised that a Strike Out was best. Stuart said he tried to sue the States for damages, claiming public officials had engaged in a conspiracy against him when he was dismissed from the post of Health Minister in 2007. 



He said  "they engaged in a plot to cover up child abuse in the island, which he was trying to expose, causing harm to his emotional and physical health as a result"



The judge said none of the defendants owed him a duty of care as a private individual and that he was the "author of his own misfortune".


He said Syvret was trying to bring a private claim against a public wrong, at a time when he, as a public person, possessed no greater rights than anyone else.


Jonathan Sumption QC also refused to authorise a judicial review- which would have subjected the powers of public authority to scrutiny- and ordered Mr. Syvret to pay the defendants' costs.



After the judgment Mr. Syvret said: "I've done my best, indeed I thought it was quite funny in a tragic kind of way that Mr. Sumption suggested in the judgment that the stress, the harm, the difficulty I had suffered in 2007 in trying to expose these child protection failures and being opposed by the civil servants was self inflicted upon me, that I needn't have done that work, therefore I had no claim, which I think sends a very terrible message to public officials, that essentially means anyone who's in my position needn't bother to doing their duty, need not bother taking on significant challenges in their job, because if it's difficult and bad for you to do that then that's just tough."



Mr. Syvret claims he had a legal obligation as Health Minister to investigate allegations of child abuse, but that he was intentionally obstructed by public officials from carrying out his duties. 




This is what former Chief Minister Le Sueur said ;"The ability of the court to strike out proceedings is a mechanism to enable the early stopping of proceedings that have no real legal prospect of success. It is a decision generally taken on the documentation before the court and is only ordered in plain and obvious cases. I am advised by the Solicitor General that this is such a case."




You see, this goes to the very heart of the issues concerning The Jersey Child Abuse Enquiry (Operation Rectangle), The States of Jersey, The Crown , Child Protection and Stuart Syvret,  it's all linked. 



STRIKE OUT


STRIKE OUT



Now Remember the Chapman Report. He was brought in by the States Employment Board and conducted a report into the harassment of States Employees and the effect it had on staff



CHAPMAN REPORT



This is from the Chapman Report and the reason I've put it here is because again it goes to the heart of everything. When Our Chief Minister gets asked to PUT UP he STRIKES OUT. Chapman says;The Chapman Report clearly states. 


“ I have a clear view that I had formed shortly after commencing my

investigation and pressed on me by many of those who gave evidence to me that it is the responsibility of the SEB as the employer to refute publicly any such allegation that is made in clear, unequivocal and firm but moderate language that the allegation is baseless. On each occasion the statement should be backed up wherever possible with the evidence refuting the allegation. In addition to making the denial as widely available as possible staff should be made aware it has been done and the material widely disseminated. It should be posted on the blog. If the Senator refuses to accept the posting that fact should also be publicised“



PUT UP TERRY



Why do you think are ruling elite are running away from any chance of full evidence being heard in an open court of law? When you look at what they are doing you will notice it's all action and no substance. Again, this is why I come back to the committee of enquiry.



Someone asked me if I was covering the Advocate Tim Hanson request for an Internal Report written  by the Children's Service concerning the Special Case Review (SCR)  into family X. I have now read the article written by Ben Querre it has left me stunned. It really does tie in with what I was saying about Stuart Syvret and his Sumption strike out. Again we see the concealment brigade in action. The children in question were subject to care proceedings dating back to 1999 but it took them 9 years to be removed from their parents. They received years of Abuse and neglect  as a result. The SCR can be read online here SCR



As Ben Queree states in his article  An SCR Review concluded last year that they had suffered for years because the authorities failed to take them into care despite being warned that they were at risk. What also is a serious worry is that Advocate Tim Hanson who is representing the children says the the report will indentify the failings by the Health and Social Services Department children's department. 



Remember what happened with Stuart Syvret and the strike out by Sumption.Stuart Syvret said that there were failings in the Child Protection department but as it was stuck out none of the evidence was heard be any of the people who had responsibility for children and their possible failings. Now lawyers acting for Health Minister Anne Pryke are fighting disclosure. In my opinion this goes along with why they don't want a committee of enquiry they simply don't want any of the hard evidence coming out but what is even more staggering is this is being backed by the head of the Jersey Child Protection Committee Dr Mike Taylor. Now I really wish that Ben Querre had asked Dr Taylor why he is taking this stance but there is nothing in his article on this point. 



Advocate Claire Davis has argued in court that the States do not owe the children  'a private law duty of care' - they are not liable to a compensation claim. Advocate Hanson said that  stance  put the Island at odds with European and English Law he said " They have denied liability. The main plank of that is that they say that as a matter of Jersey law there is no duty of care to Children in the care system,which we say is nonsense."


Now look again at what Judge Sumption said to Stuart Syvret on his strike out;


"The judge said none of the defendants owed him a duty of care as a private individual and that he was the "author of his own misfortune".



Do you see the pattern here. Who has responsibility for children here? There are better minds out there than mine who can get a better grasp of it than me but I believe they are trying to keep the lid on a can of very angry worms. They never want any of the evidence heard. It's always blocking and stalling. This is what I have been going on about in my interviews concerning the agencies. This goes from the bottom to the very to top make no mistake.



I would like to thank Ben Querre for reporting this and I hope he will follow it up with some real investigative work and keep the people informed as to what is going on.



Is Child Protection a Dirty Word in Jersey?



What happens if it's the same names that keep coming up in the failure of Child Protection?



This is all heading down the tracks as we head into 2012



Team Voice would like to thank our readers  new and old the world over for their continued support.



We wish all a Merry Christmas and prosperous  and safe New Year 



NO ONE SEEMS TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING IN JERSEY CONCERNING CHILD PROTECTION

Rico.

The "authorities" time and time again have been given the opportunity to "put up or shut up" and time and time again they have "shut up"

How can any parent feel their child is safe under this administration? Mike Taylor of the Child "Protection" Committee won't disclose evidence?

This Blog Posting lays it bare of how they have been getting away with it for years and continue to get away with it.........It's truly frightening stuff and well put together with "evidence and facts."

One can safely say, you have "put up" and the silence from the State Media and their paymasters will remain deafening........When will Jersey's children ever be safe?

So, Stuart Syvret comes out of prison next month. He would have completed his punishment, and paid all of his debts with the time that he has served inside.

He will be restarting with a clean sheet. All guns reloaded and ready for action and surely results this time.

We cant have a judicial review can we now. No point in one of those silly things when everything is rosy in the child protection garden. People really need to think about what is going on here. Sumption didn't believe that the local powers of authority should be open to scrutiny? Why the hell not? seeing as we seemed to have plenty of failures going back years.

Why did the former Chief Minister go for a nice little strike out? Surely he wasn't worried about the powers of authorities standing up to some cross examination.

STATEMENT TO BE MADE BY THE CHIEF MINISTER
ON TUESDAY 1st FEBRUARY 2011


Historical Child Abuse-Committee of Inquiry


On the 6th December 2010 I made a statement to the States in which I apologised unreservedly
on behalf of the Island’s Government to all those who suffered abuse in States’ residential care.
In that statement I also mentioned that the current Council of Ministers were considering the
previous Council of Ministers proposal to commission a Committee of Inquiry.

As promised on the 6th December 2010, the Council of Ministers has now lodged a report
following its deliberations which concludes that the Council believes that, with the passage of
time and events, a Committee of Inquiry is no longer appropriate. The Council of Ministers is
firmly of the view that because of the number of investigations and reviews that have been
undertaken, whilst there may be questions, there are no unresolved issues that would benefit from
investigation through a Committee of Inquiry.

The report is necessarily long and factual but the Council of Ministers has had at the forefront of
its consideration those who may have suffered abuse. The Council firmly believes that the Island
would be best served by concentrating on the steps that have been taken to improve services and
to focus on continuing to meet and support the needs of those affected. I am pleased to announce
that further support to those affected will continue in 2011 with Andrew Williamson agreeing to
provide an independent point of contact to help those needing support to receive the most
appropriate assistance.

The Council of Ministers is well aware that some people will not agree with its decision. I hope
that those people will realise that the Council has taken this matter seriously and sensitively. The
Council believes that there is nothing further to be gained from yet another investigation into
these matters and have sought to find a sensitive way forward. We hope that the majority of
States members and people in Jersey will agree with our judgement.

Finally I think it is also an appropriate time to thank the staff in our Departments, those in the voluntary sector and everybody who has worked together over the past few years to help those who may have suffered abuse in the past.

STATEMENT TO BE MADE BY THE CHIEF MINISTER
ON TUESDAY 18th JANUARY 2011

Legal proceedings commenced by Mr Stuart Syvret

As members may be aware proceedings have been commenced in the Royal Court by Mr Stuart
Syvret against a number of parties arising out of the dismissal of Mr Syvret whilst a member of
the States of Jersey from the office of Minster for Health and Social Services.

I, amongst others, am named as a defendant in Mr Syvret’s proceedings in my capacity as Chief
Minister as is the States Employment Board of which I am Chairman. Those proceedings also
seek to name the States of Jersey as a party alleging that the States of Jersey were at fault. In
respect of the pleaded case against the States of Jersey, it is alleged that (a) the Council of
Ministers obstructed Mr Syvret in the course of his Ministerial duties and joined a criminal
conspiracy to have him removed as Minister and (b) the States of Jersey as a whole did not
protect Mr Syvret by failing to introduce relevant safeguards to protect him from the alleged
criminal conspiracy. The claim is made against the Assembly as a whole and no claim is made
against individual members at this stage. It is possible that the claim might be amended so as to
name individual Ministers rather than the States of Jersey given the nature of the allegations
made. In that event, each Minister would be sued as a corporation sole.

Advice has been taken from the Solicitor General who has advised that the case against all of the
named defendants should be struck-out and proceed no further. He also advises, in particular, that
the case against the States of Jersey is misconceived and that the States of Jersey should not be a
party to the proceedings and that it would not be appropriate for the proceedings against the
States of Jersey to continue.

A hearing before the Royal Court will take place tomorrow in which the Court will be asked to
give directions for the further conduct of the proceedings and the timing of a hearing of an
application to strike the proceedings out.

rico sorda said...

In the light of the unambiguous legal advice received from the Solicitor General I have, through
the Greffier of the States, instructed the Solicitor General to make an application to strike the
proceedings as against the States of Jersey as well as against me as Chief Minister and against the
States Employment Board. I understand that the other named defendants have similarly instructed
the Solicitor General who will accordingly make such an application on behalf of all named
defendants.

The ability of a court to strike out proceedings is a mechanism to enable the early stopping of
proceedings which have no real legal prospect of success. It is a decision generally taken on the
documentation before the court and is only ordered in plain and obvious cases. I am advised by
the Solicitor General that this is such a case. If the court orders the case to be struck out as
against the States of Jersey then, subject to any rights of appeal, as far as the States of Jersey is
concerned the litigation would be at an end.

I am advising members at this time of the steps that I have taken. I have notified the Chairman of
Privileges and Procedures Committee of the position. I will consult with and keep the Chairman
of Privileges and Procedures Committee apprised of any developments.

End of Statement

Now, both of those statements were given by former Chief ]Minister Terry Le Suer. Is it just me or are we beginning to see a pattern here? Because obviously there hasn't been a breakdown in child protection along the odd decade in jersey so no need to look at anything.

But here is the problem. All the issues they are keeping out of court will surface in a committee of enquiry. The CoE will be looking at exactly the issues they are trying to protect.

Think about it.

This is a real danger for them

Private law is that part of a civil law legal system which is part of the jus commune that involves relationships between individuals, such as the law of contracts or torts,[1] as it is called in the common law, and the law of obligations as it is called in civilian legal systems. It is to be distinguished from public law, which deals with relationships between natural and artificial persons (i.e., individuals, business entities, non-profit organizations) and the state including regulatory statutes, penal law and other law that effects the public order

Perhaps Ian could point you in the right. Public law versus common law when it fits the purpose States want it too

Hi Anon

You must be a very new reader to my blog I welcome you. I have covered the Lucy Paton and NOTW article sometime ago when three Jersey Politicians, one being a data theif, asked the Attorney General to investigate this issue.

I believe Lucy Paton could well have been leaked information from the SOJP but alas not from who you think or hope it is. I look forward to seeing what happens to her next April. Plus, you never know she might drop a name or two.

Lucy Paton was the crime writer at the NOTW so she no doubt covered many many stories and had just as many contacts. I hope this helps.

So Rico, Jonathan Sumption QC who is about to be appointed to the UK Supreme Court is part of your so called conspiracy is he?

The chances are that this only exists in your head and there is no conspiracy. The more people involved the more likely a conspiracy fails. You have accused all and sundry so the logical conclusion is that given you have not proved anything of any substance that there is no conspiracy.

Like I said, the paedophiles have declared war on the police.

The paedophiles were laughing at the police in their arrogant book of how they got away with it, THE APPALLING VISTA by Brian Rothery.

Brian Rothery wrote approvingly about "artistic" pictures of naked children in that book, and in the other book about Paradise Lost.

He wrote about Nigel Oldfield, very sympathetically as well. Nigel Oldfield is the convicted paedpophile history teacher who was on Newsnight, he was in the Sun, running a paedophile website from his prison cell.

How come a notorious and unrepentant paedophile like Nigel Oldfield was allowed computer access from prison, yet whistleblowers like Stuart Syvret are not? There seems to be one law for paedophiles and another for everyone else! These people are making a mockery of the laws of the land!

Hi Anonymous

I don't like the word conspiracy. It is a word I would have used a lot more a few years back but not now. I have learnt how the word conspiracy can be used to hide the normal everyday wrong doings plus down right sloppiness of people sitting in positions of authority who are not suited for their role.

I follow the evidence.

I'm not afraid to ask questions. Why not question what Sumption is up too? I couldn't care less if he was about to be made high priestess of the incas what concerns me most is what's going on in Jersey with Child Protection and the courts. What concerns me also is how the evidence from all sides keeps getting blocked from being heard in court etc etc

Is it a conspiracy that Terry Le Main & Sean Power never faced any charges for their Data Protection Breaks and Stuart Syvret did?

Is it a conspiracy that Geoff Southern & Shona Pitman end up in the Royal Court with huge fines?

Is it a conspiracy that after 3 years we are exactly WHERE with planning corruption?

I look at what's going on around me and question it

You my friend, can package it up and call it what you like.

Remember this;

2: You and your political allies, in a carefully co-coordinated PR stunt, have now shown to the world that you are not "non-political police officers" - focused only on the investigation - but are, instead, highly politically partisan.

For example - no matter that the approach adopted by Mr. Harper has been condemned by yourselves and your political allies - he kept press-conferences and public pronouncements entirely within the bounds of policing - and did not engage in the partisan, political alignment with senior political figures - of the kind you both displayed yesterday.

Given that you have - effectively - destroyed your credibility by displaying such overt politicisation - could you explain how you imagine survivors, whistle-blowers and real journalists can now regard you both as anything other than political components of the Jersey oligarchy apparatus?

3: Who actually authored the 5 page press-release which was issued by you both?

4: Why does it contain so many brazen misrepresentations of what was actually said by Mr. Harper - as opposed to what may have been said by some parts of the media?

5: Why does it repeat certain statements made by Mr. Harper - as though they were your own - and thus imply that what Mr. Harper had said was somehow completely different?

Children in Jersey not at risk today, says expert - Harry McRandle

THERE is no evidence of children in care in Jersey being at risk today, a UK expert carrying out an independent review of current child protection services said yesterday.

A new post of Minister for Children should be created, however, former Devon Social Services director Alan Williamson told a press conference at St Paul’s Centre as he presented his interim report.

And Jersey’s current child protection provision would score a 2 on a scale of 1 to 4, said Mr Williamson, who revealed yesterday that he is likely to recommend that a single minister have responsibility for the welfare of children and the services designed to protect them.

Mr Williamson said that the current childcare services in the Island would probably be ranked as mid-range in comparison to those available in the UK.

Does Jersey have its Minister for children yet?

Has Jersey signed up to the rights of a child yet?

Rico and VFC, thank you so much for all your hard work this year. You have proved that there really are people out there that do care and will stop at nothing in exposing the truth. Through all adversaries you guys have never given up and for that, I will be forever grateful! Wishing you and your family a very Happy, Peaceful Christmas and an enlightening New Year! Carrie x

I fully concur Carrie. Rico, VFC and others have never faltered in their belief or resolve to get to the truth, or in their support of the victims of abuse.

Those who have chosen to disbelieve and villify the victims either have no consciences or are blinded to a very unpalatable truth. Having said that I am a great believer in the saying that what goes around comes around.

For myself personally, and I have said this before, through this I have made some wonderful friendships with brave and honest people I admire immensely, and I wish you all you wish yourselves for the forthcoming year.

Rico and VFC
Thank you for providing the information the establishment and their established media friends are in denial over. Thank you for being brave enough to do this and for doing it so well. Rico and VFC - be proud. Like Stuart, you are brave people whose names will go down in history for all the right reasons.
May 2012 bring the goals you and so many less brave people like me seek.
I'd like to wish you both, and Stuart, a peaceful and happy Christmas.

Jersey Rainbow

Senator Syvret in 2007 as Health Minister

“I have serious concerns, to be honest, about the whole child protection, child welfare standards of performance of Jersey, not just within my own department, Social Services and the Children’s Service, but across the board. I am aware of a number of issues, this being one of them, a number of cases, a number of incidents that lead me more and more strongly to the conclusion that we are failing badly in this area. I am probably going to be seeking to initiate a major independent review into the whole sphere of child welfare, child protection in Jersey. So if you are asking me honestly, do I believe the performance of certain senior individuals within this field and of the departments generally is acceptable, no, it is not.”

Merry Christmas RIco and thanks for all the work you do. The state media should be ashamed.

Thanks for this Rico - once again Stuart was right, and being right has sadly, been his downfall.

What a corrupt Island we live in.

I am probably going to be seeking to initiate a major independent review into the whole sphere of child welfare, child protection in Jersey. So if you are asking me honestly, do I believe the performance of certain senior individuals within this field and of the departments generally is acceptable, no, it is not.”

The judge said none of the defendants owed him a duty of care as a private individual and that he was the "author of his own misfortune".
He said Syvret was trying to bring a private claim against a public wrong, at a time when he, as a public person, possessed no greater rights than anyone else.
Jonathan Sumption QC also refused to authorise a judicial review- which would have subjected the powers of public authority to scrutiny- and ordered Mr. Syvret to pay the defendants' costs.

THE STRIKE OUT

After the judgment Mr. Syvret said: "I've done my best, indeed I thought it was quite funny in a tragic kind of way that Mr. Sumption suggested in the judgment that the stress, the harm, the difficulty I had suffered in 2007 in trying to expose these child protection failures and being opposed by the civil servants was self inflicted upon me, that I needn't have done that work, therefore I had no claim, which I think sends a very terrible message to public officials, that essentially means anyone who's in my position needn't bother to doing their duty, need not bother taking on significant challenges in their job, because if it's difficult and bad for you to do that then that's just tough."

Mr. Syvret claims he had a legal obligation as Health Minister to investigate allegations of child abuse, but that he was intentionally obstructed by public officials from carrying out his duties.

TIM HANSON



Advocate Claire Davis has argued in court that the States do not owe the children 'a private law duty of care' - they are not liable to a compensation claim. Advocate Hanson said that stance put the Island at odds with European and English Law he said " They have denied liability. The main plank of that is that they say that as a matter of Jersey law there is no duty of care to Children in the care system,which we say is nonsense."
Now look again at what Judge Sumption said to Stuart Syvret on his strike out;
"The judge said none of the defendants owed him a duty of care as a private individual and that he was the "author of his own misfortune".

I must add that I popped up the prison on Christmas Eve to see Stuart and check on some points. He is looking really well and in very good spirits. Prison is a very serious issue but with every negative there is a positive. 2012 is going to be a big year. I cant see him stopping, not one bit. He has charged his batteries got healthy nailed the gym and ready to get back on it.

Knowing that the "Syvret" word triggers the troll please don't bother I wont publish it.

Jerk it on your own space

Do you know Stuarts exact release date ?

It should be next week.

Zoompad said...

I have been contacted this week by a distraught mother, who is being given the same sort of treatment as Stuart has been given, in the secret family courts.

They have hounded this poor woman for such a long time, Social Services are involved, they share the mothers concern that the child has been sexually abused by his father, but the family court and Cafcass are completly ignoring the concerns and are trying to make the child stay with the father who has been accused of abuse. I have had this poor woman in floods of tears down the phone over Christmas period, as on Friday they tried to force her to go to court, she had a doctors note to say she wasn't fit for court (I told her to see the doctor after having her weeping down the phone, it was obvious what a state she was in) but they held the court sessions without her in spite of having the doctors note.

Stuarts persecutors are the same ones as the ones who have persecuted vulnerable child abuse survivors. This has got to stop, if anyone could have heard that poor woman weeping a few days ago, and so fearful for her son who she just wants to protect, they would have had to have had a heart of stone not to be moved.

GeeGee said...

Strange places where Stuart's name pops up. Having just had a short spell in hospital an elderly lady in the bed next to me starting talking about problems they had had with the States here, and how much her and her husband admired Stuart and the courage he has shown in exposing the many issues here.

When her husband visited her, you can be sure we had a good old chinwag!!

Of course he will never give up. It is not in his nature, and I genuinely hope that with the support that both you and VFC have shown to him, he will be refreshed and ready to go forward in the New Year.

Coming in 2012

Remember ACPO?

The Reports that don't suit our Government. I will be looking why ACPO was not accepted by our ruling elite and Matt Tapp was;

The more I look the more I despair. None of it could have happened with out a compliant MSM

8.4 The SIO has retained an open mind with regard to the piece of skull that was recovered. He acknowledges that it could be quite dated not be from a murder. He is treating the case as a homicide investigation until he can prove otherwise. The piece of a child's skull was found in suspicious circumstances and the SIO was correct to state to the media that this was a homicide investigation but that the human remains may be found to be not subject of any violent act. Forensic test to identify the piece of bone may take another four weeks (carbon dating and subsequent DNA). The circumstances as to its provenance may then be clearer. He still, however, leads an investigation into a number of allegations with regard to children going missing, a history of recovered and discarded human bones and an extremely complex historical child abuse investigation. Until the contrary is proved, the SIO is dealing with allegations of homicide, serious sexual assaults and prolonged periods of child abuse within a care home.

"Excuse me but Stuart Syvret stuck two fingers up at data protection department when asked to remove things "

So, basically, Stuart was sent to prison for publishing about a dangerous nurse whose corrupt friends shielded him from prosecution?

No wonder old ladies in hospital praise tha name Stuart Syvret. They will remember only too well the murders that Harold Shipman got away with, before he was finally brought to justice.

Stuart was trying to protect people by what he did, unlike Sean Power and his hateful cronies, who have also broken the data protection act, and not been sent to prison.

I had an in depth conversation over a Christmas meal with an acquaintance who knows her stuff. Her astute observation was the TOR is only one half of the battle. The composition of the COI is equally critical.

Indeed she suggested in some circumstances one could predict the outcome of the COI from who is appointed to chair it. Her view the only way to get a decent inquiry and report would be to have 2 people each from the opposing sides with a proper uninvolved impartial chair.

If the facts are to come out it is key to have people on there that victims and whistle blowers trust will listen to their side. She mentioned a couple of names who might actually be able to do that and have enough professional standing to be credible on the COI. There are not that many.

If their names come up I'll be prepared to think it might work. If not I'm afraid the COI will be a waste of time.

You are so correct in what you say. We will have to be like hawks. These were issues raised with Mr Marsden from Verita.

"Follow you on Twitter RS? Twitter is a news mechanism for exclusives with original up to date news items either missed or not found out by the tabloids yet. Stuff like the USA killing of Bin Laden or a celebrity scandal before Hello Magazine. So where does your Twitter postings fall into this new service? VFC posts sometimes do but the Coronation Street Twitter page has more up to date scoops and gossip than anything you ever seem to write on Twitter and your cover up talk is plain boring. For 2012 go out and do it and stop talking about it."
