Senator Shenton

Dear Senator Shenton

When we spoke after the press conference by the Howard League for Penal Reform on Friday 14 November 2008, I informed you that I would be re-submitting my appeal. This is the appeal in connection with my complaint dated 1 January 2007, which I raised under the States of Jersey Serious Concerns Policy.

As you are aware, you wrote to me on 7 January 2008, informing me that I had no right of appeal as I was no longer a States of Jersey employee; that I was not entitled to use the States of Jersey appeals procedures.

At the end of your letter, you made the following statement:

“However, in the wider public interest, if you can furnish me with tangible facts which can be corroborated independently then I will consider how best to proceed."

I am sure you will agree that the report by the Howard League for Penal Reform, and information given by Andrew Nielson, Jon Fayle, and Lynne Ravenscroft at the press conference, are indeed “tangible facts which can be corroborated independently”.

I invite you to consider how best to proceed with this appeal and look forward to your response as a matter of urgency.

Yours sincerely

Simon Bellwood"

Senator Perchard - Exposed

Those of you who have been following the local TV and radio since the Howard League published their report on Friday will have quickly learnt badly how Senator Perchard has managed the press interviews.

You think he would have learnt after watching his boss Senator Walker last February.

Although very worrying that a man like this has political responsibility for Jersey most vulnerable children is was also quite amusing, especially the one when he looked like he was going to be physically sick!

This interview was with Adam Fowler of Channel TV on Friday.

You can view it interview here, it is well worth the watch;

Now, if there are any computer buffs out that that know how to download all of these interviews then please can you help out and put them on You Tube. We can then post links to this blog for all to see.

Take a look at his face when Adam Fowler stings him the quote from the HL report.

Surely no politician can pull a stunt like that and survive.

If I was a States member I would be lodging a vote of no confidence immediately.

I am however going to write to Senator Frank Walker and Senator Perchard asking for his resignation forthwith.

Thank you for the links where civil servants have stated that the Grand Prix system did not happen and was not abusive.

We could do with some more so that I can submit a portfolio of evidence to Senator Walker, the NSPCC and the General Social Care Council (GSCC) which will prove that there has been a cover up in Jersey.

Admittedly, there may be some who genuinely believed that the Grand Prix system did not happen or was not abusive in which case it would be unfair to accuse them of partaking in a cover up.

This ignorance however does not excuse them or provide them with immunity from the fallout.

It simply proves that whilst not corrupt, they are simply incompetent, and should resign or be suspended (as a neutral act of course) pending investigation.

I will post a further blog later tonight.

Please drop me some comments as we need to step this up a gear if we are to seek any form of justice. Please remember what we achieve now will help the vulnerable children of tomorrow.
