OPERATION END GAME 23 - CORRUPT-SHAMBOLIC -HUBRIS



OPERATION END GAME -23-  


THE LAST POST ON THIS HORRIFIC CORRUPT SHAMBLES OF GOVERNMENT 



WE TAKE A  LOOK AT THE SHAMBOLIC PERFORMANCE OF THE HOME AFFAIRS MINISTER, SENATOR IAN LE MARQUAND 



WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE FORMER ACTING CHIEF OFFICER OF THE STATES OF JERSEY POLICE DAVID WARCUP




JERSEY BLOGGERS ARE THE INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS 


Former Senator Stuart Syvret has started publishing Graham Powers statement to Wiltshire. This Statement is another part of the bigger picture and can be read here.



Let us first  take a look a look at the Home Affairs Minister and the interview he gave Channel Television. This is the interview he gave regarding Operation Blast. 

He gave this Interview after dropping all disciplinary action against Graham Power.

I repeat again;


He gave this Interview after dropping all disciplinary action against Graham Power.


The Minister had spent 1.5 million pounds on the Wiltshire Disciplinary Investigation - dropped all charges -   threw all natural justice out the window - and then,  with the help of the local Jersey Media, character assassinated Graham Power in what has to be one of the most disgusting acts to come out of this shambolic episode.


Just listen to the Ministers   if's - buts and maybes. 




This part is just incredible:


Jersey's Home Affairs Minister, Senator Ian Le Marquand said: "I think it's pretty serious, because the propensity for undermining democracy was there. I mean, there's no evidence that actually happened, but let us say at some stage later that there might hypothetically be a particular politician annoying the police. The propensity for them to say, right we're now going to look at what we've got on this particular person and we're going to leak it to some other hostile politician in order to try and take this person out of play, is really extremely worrying. I'm not saying that happened, I'm not saying they had that intention but the potential for that existed and that's very serious indeed."












So, what does David Warcup breaking into Graham Powers secure safe, whilst denying Mr Power any  representation, then passing a transcript of a conversation between the Chief of Police Graham Power and former Senator Stuart Syvret to a fellow politician who happened to be the Home Affairs Minister isn't these the actions that the Home Affairs Minister is talking about above?


These people are complete and utter clowns - you really couldn't make it up - and still he sits there as the Home Affairs Minister. 


Everything has been researched, documented and published on this blog.  There's not much more we can do. It is the Hubris of Jersey that allows this corrupt incompetence to flourish.


This is my final posting on these issues for now as I turn my attention towards the Committee of Enquiry and Graham Powers conflicted Judicial Review


Im very proud of the work i've published over the past months. It just shows what can be achieved if you take a little bit of time to investigate, follow your instinct and never bow down to intimidation. 

I will leave the Last word to the former Acting Chief of Police and his press release on handing in his notice in 2010. David Warcup, just like the Home Affairs Minister, have been caught out. 

Why he did what he did we might never  find out.


THE LAST OF THE END GAME POSTS

Statement of David Warcup, Acting Chief Officer, States of Jersey Police - 19/07/10

"Following discussions with the Minister for Home Affairs, I have advised the Minister that I no longer wish to be considered for the post of Chief Officer, States of Jersey Police and that I will be leaving the force on 31st December 2010.

In April 2008, I was appointed as Deputy Chief Officer, with the express intention that I would progress to be the next Chief Officer when the serving Chief Officer retired, no later than December 2010. The selection process involved an assessment against the full requirement for the post of Chief Officer and was overseen by the States of Jersey Appointments Commission.

In January 2010, a further review and formal assessment process was carried out by a review panel consisting of the Minister for Home Affairs, a representative of the Appointments Commission, the Chief Executive and the Director of Human Resources.

As a result of the assessment, the panel made a strong recommendation, endorsing the proposal that I be appointed to the post of Chief Officer on the retirement of the existing post holder. 
It has therefore been my reasonable expectation since April 2008, that I would succeed the Chief Officer, Mr Power, on his retirement.

I am grateful for the support of the Minister, but I have made it clear to him that the primary reasons for leaving are due to the political hostility which has been directed towards me, the attacks on my personal integrity and the resultant delays in securing my appointment.

In recent months there has been a concerted effort to challenge my integrity and to postpone my appointment. It is apparent that no consideration was given to the impact that such actions would have on both me and my family. 
The role of the Chief Officer of Police has been drawn into a heavily politicised debate, the outcome of which has been the failure to secure my appointment in accordance with the previously publicised commitment in April 2008.

The unfounded accusations from a small number of people concerning my conduct during the Historical Abuse Inquiry as well accusations made relating to my role in the suspension of the Chief Officer were malicious and unfounded. The publication of reports following enquiries by Wiltshire Police, clearly vindicate my position in raising what were serious concerns regarding the conduct of the Historical Abuse Inquiry.

I believe that I have acted at every stage, honestly, as well as demonstrating courage in challenging those matters which were manifestly wrong and could have potentially prejudiced trials.

In the face of provocation and persistent attempts to undermine my authority as the Acting Chief Officer of Police, I believe that I have acted professionally, maintaining a focus on my role in ensuring that the force performed effectively, protecting the public and preventing and detecting crime. The results achieved by the force during the period in question amply demonstrate this.

I have always maintained that the police should be fully accountable, but that they should be free from political interference. It is also a basic tenet of policing that any Police force must be operationally independent if it is to deliver professional and impartial policing, but equally we can only police with the consent of the public.

The actions of a few have only served to undermine the position of the Chief Officer and therefore my mandate to carry out that role independently and effectively. On this basis I believe my ability to undertake the role of Chief Officer within the States of Jersey has been undermined to the point where it would be untenable and was therefore a significant factor in my decision not to take up the post.

It is my fervent hope that whoever is appointed Chief Officer of Police, is afforded the freedom and respect to enable him or her, to carry out their duties within a properly structured accountability framework without the interference which has been such a significant part of events in recent months.

It is with great disappointment that I leave the officers and staff who work for the States of Jersey Police, who despite difficult circumstances have worked with professionalism to deliver high quality policing services.

I am grateful for their support and commitment over the last 21 months as Acting Chief Officer, and I believe that together we have made significant progress in ensuring that the Force is better placed to deliver effective policing in Jersey."

Ian Le Marquand, in the paragraph below, demonstrates just about everything this bloke has said and done during his disgraceful handling of Mr. Power's suspension.

"Jersey's Home Affairs Minister, Senator Ian Le Marquand said: "I think it's pretty serious, because the propensity for undermining democracy was there. I mean, there's no evidence that actually happened, but let us say at some stage later that there might hypothetically be a particular politician annoying the police. The propensity for them to say, right we're now going to look at what we've got on this particular person and we're going to leak it to some other hostile politician in order to try and take this person out of play, is really extremely worrying. I'm not saying that happened, I'm not saying they had that intention but the potential for that existed and that's very serious indeed."

Le Marquand has to admit THERE IS NO EVIDENCE, then goes onto make up a completely hypothetical scenario, that he himself, (NOT GRAHAM POWER) is guilty of!!!

It's just bl--dy priceless this stuff, and the fact that the State Media never pointed out the NO EVIDENCE and HYPOTHETICAL scenario is further shame (as if any were needed) on them.

What an utter disgrace disgrace Ian Le Marquand is to his profession and what a disgrace the Jersey State Media are to theirs.

How very bizarre these statements by both ILM and Warcup sound. They use the very vocabulary Graham Power could have used much more honestly, to describe their own subversion of justice and democracy, blatant attempts to influence criminal cases, and publicly documented intent to politicize the police force.

Then there is the unintentionally humorous bout of self pity expressed by Warcup when he mentions the effects on his personal feelings and those of his family, which were apparently just so hurt by any criticism of his nefarious plotting against his more professional and much credible superior officer, Graham Power.

Irony much?

After what Warcup did to Harper and Power, how can we keep from gagging when he then complains his feelings are being hurt?

"On Thursday 22 January 2009 an audio tape was found in an envelope in the Chief Officer's safe at Police Headquarters. When examined it was found that the tape contained recordings of telephone conversations with a number of individuals including the Chief Officer, Mr Power. I have enclosed the full transcript of these recordings for your information and consideration and you will note that they relate to conversations which took place with members of the media,representatives of partner agencies, and a States member, Senator Stuart Syvret."

The above taken from a letter sent to Senator Le Marquand from David Warcup



Senator I. Le Marquand,
Minister for Home Affairs,
11, Royal Square,
St Helier
JE2 4WA.

10 July 2009


Dear Minister,

RE; Operation Blast

I write further to my letter dated 2 June 2009 Operation Blast.

As you are aware a further matter had previously come to my attention which I believe you may need to formally consider should you determine that you intend to extend the Terms of Reference of the enquiry being conducted by Wiltshire Police, in respect of the Chief Officer Graham Power.

On Thursday 22 January 2009 an audio tape was found in an envelope in the Chief Officer's safe at Police Headquarters. When examined it was found that the tape contained recordings of telephone conversations with a number of individuals including the Chief Officer, Mr Power. I have enclosed the full transcript of these recordings for your information and consideration and you will note that they relate to conversations which took place with members of the media,representatives of partner agencies, and a States member, Senator Stuart Syvret.

The Wiltshire Police Team have previously been advised of the existence of the tape.

I therefore submit this matter for your consideration as to whether you wish to refer this matter to Chief Constable of Wiltshire, Mr Brian Moore, for his attention.

Yours sincerely

David Warcup

Acting Chief Officer

Graham Power told Senator Le Marquand all bout the files when he sent him his 4,000 word response why is Le Marquand making out that it was Wiltshire that informed him a year later?


June 11th 2009 - Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand writes to Graham Power regarding Operation Blast and informs him that there is now two more possible areas of complaint against him. He also informs Chief Executive Bill Ogley about the new issues regarding Operation Blast.






June 14th 2009 - Graham Power replies to the Home Affairs Ministers letter. In Mr Powers 4,000 word reply he explains to the Minister some of the matters regarding to Operation Blast. This 4,000 word reply was leaked by someone as the media got hold of it and published parts. The leak was not from Mr Power.

Le Marquand just pretends he didn't know.

Rico, do think Warcup had any idea that you were on his trail when he wrote this?

The only word I can think of to describe the behaviour of Mr Warcup and Senator Le Marquand is grotesque. The only explanation I can think of for their thinking they could get away with this is pure arrogance, although it seems that arrogance was somewhat misplaced with an investigative journalist like Rico Sorda on their trail.

"In recent months there has been a concerted effort to challenge my integrity and to postpone my appointment. It is apparent that no consideration was given to the impact that such actions would have on both me and my family. "

Contrast Warcups sickening self pity with the bravery of the whistleblowers, bloggers and the abuse survivors, some who have recieved death threats.

If I were a member of David Warcup's family I would be giving him the earblasting of his life over what he has done. In fact, I don't think I would want anything to do with him, ever. I feel sorry for his family, for being related to such an unprincipled scum bag.

In response to

...

If Warcup truly believed his own words and was not simply a puppet on a string he would have stayed to clear his name and go on to prove to anyone who thought differently how he was a man of great integrity and nothing, not just a couple of bloggers and one or to politicians could change that.

Instead, he took either the cowards way out or was "advised" that because he wont get the job that he needed to put aportion the blame on the minority. Lets be honest here the minority are the bloggers and a few politicians so why did he not feel able to rise up against the minority and prove himself to be the great guy he thinks he is.

Nope, the simple answer for me is he was just a puppet on a string. He did what he was brought here to do and that was that and Ian Le Marquand knew that too but didnt have the gumption to go by his word that he would resign if he didnt get the chief of police he wanted.

Two people, one description. Con Artists.

There is a law about con artists but it doesn't apply to them. Makes me wonder what barrels the folk prosecuting Ian Christmas had to go over before they had their say, not forgetting Christmas has still been earning a wage.

Its Christmas every day in the states providing you tow the line!

Ahh just before I post you can remove the Christmas stuff if it is a problem being an ongoing case, not sure if you are allowed to post that

It would seem that Bailhache and Co are getting their way.

Everything to do with Jersey Child Abuse is being suppressed.

Yet The Electral Commission is Bailhache's priority.

Gorst!
You should be ashamed of yourself.

Nothing but the Bailhaches puppet!?

Love this new initiative

Suppressed to me indicates that there is too much to hide, too much to loose if the true facts emerge.

Gorst is indeed a weakling, and so soon into his tenure is showing he is indeed a man of no 'TF' as Trevor Pitman would say.
