'I have never seen anything like this in 30 years. In respect of sexual offences I have been a detective for 22 years, I can show convictions for rapes and sex offences by predatory peadophiles as well as a huge number of murders, but I have never ever seen police working in this way, I really am absolutely shocked by what has gone on. It is abhorrent behaviour'. Mick Gradwell.

 is time he was ignored and besides we have heard it all before, and counteless times and to top it all its now all been dissmissed by a Court of Law. That concludes it for most people even if he wants to carry on trying to flog a dead horse to what remains of his gullible regulars.

For some people in the States and a few individuals on the Net the Napier Report is now being seen as some kind of catalyst to get Graham Power and Lenny Harper exonerated for all that went wrong with the Haut de la Garenne enquiry. Suspension procedural matters have come under fire in the Napier Report, there is no doubt about it, but how this report can exonerate the findings by the Wiltshire Constabulary is actually laughable.

We have said before that nobody has ever denied on this blog that abuse ever happened at Haut de la Garenne and we have challenged people to point out where on this blog they can back up their claim.

But for some reason, and particularly with some obsessive bloggers, there appears to be some notion that because they talk about the historic abuse enquiry more than others they are in effect more caring and any critic of the enquiry is an abuse denier. Not only is this a childish claim its actually incredibly stupid and we frequently see silly talk about keeping up a fight whilst it’s the Police and the current Police who are doing all the work!

Ironically Graham Power and Lenny Harper have behaved in a similar manner in trying to make out that only they care about the victims of abuse in an obvious desperate attempt to cover up all their mistakes of the past. But the fact is that all Police Officers care about the victims of abuse and so do the regulars on this blog so the sooner they drop this frivolous talk the better. We have even seen a number of civil servants with families accused of not caring, it really is looking silly.

Going back to Napier and Police matters in general, sadly though a lot of time has been wasted in the States with what can only be described as political meddling in police matters and whilst we have many other items more relevant to the voting public many are now looking at some States Members in dismay. There are reports that a number of seats will be challenged in the next election with the sole purpose of removing time wasters and its not surprising whilst we are still in the middle of the worst recession in living memory that some people are fed up.

The Current Trial in the Royal CourtWe do not wish to delve into the current court case concerning the Jordan’s right now but we will comment at its conclusion. What we will say for now is that some of the testimony from witnesses as reported has been truly disturbing.The New Police ChiefWe would just like to congratulate Mr Mike Bowron on his appointment and we sincerely hope he is not hounded out like his predecessor by some States Members. The treatment of David Warcup was to many, absolutely abhorrent.

Nothing ever changes

As you are aware we have decided to wind this blog down due to the subject matter being exhausted yet every time we try to take the blog offline we get requests for it to be re-opened. It has been a great ride over the past 6 months and we have been visited over 193,000 times which is fantastic.

We do want to move on though and we will be running a new blog in the new year.

In the meantime we thought we would just comment on some news items of late.

The Stuart Syvret Court Saga

The events over the past few weeks have been an eye opener to many people. Firstly the Stuart Syvret court case which ended in extra charges for Contempt of Court being rightly added on at the end of his trial, and then his subsequent imprisonment followed by release in less than 24 hours could be described as bazaar though it is normal procedure under the circumstances of an appeal. But what was noticeable at the end of the trial is that like so many critics of the ex Senator’s behaviour to date the Magistrate unsurprisingly described him as arrogant after listening to over a week of testimony. Time will tell in January whether his appeal gets anywhere but no doubt he believes that he has nothing to lose now and will continue to behave in a contemptible manner till the end. What has been proved is that the ex-Senator’s mind is set and there is no manoeuvring for negotiation with him anymore and his frequent accusations of a cover up to most is just seen as a way to duck away from a lost battle. One thing is for sure is the publicity around him can no longer be justified and what he craves through publicity is like what oxygen means to everybody else (as commented elsewhere). It
