Question 2. 06/07/10

2. Deputy T.M. Pitman of St. Helier will ask the following question of the Minister for Home Affairs –
“Will the Minister advise whether the alleged author of the Metropolitan (Met) Police Interim Report is himself under investigation by the Met regarding alleged anomalies in the report’s construction and whether the author neglected to interview crucial witnesses who could have refuted allegations made by the Former Deputy Chief Officer against the former Senior Investigating Officer and the suspended Chief Officer of the States of Jersey Police?”

You can listen to the above question by clicking on the Title.

Thanks again for offering us this audio service it truly is gold.

ILM makes a habbit of repeating over and over, to anybody that will listen that the Royal Court upheld his decision to suspend Chief Officer Graham Power.

What ILM doesn't appear to make blatantly clear is the fact that the Royal Court have found that ILM was "procedurally" correct. They have not made any decision as to whether he (ILM) was right, or wrong in suspending the Chief Police Officer, only that the correct procedures were followed. Well yippee bl--dy doo! he followed correct procedures.

What happens if it was to come out that ILM was wromg for suspending the Chief of Police?

Mind you the fact that somebody around here has followed correct procedure should be a celebration in itself....... Wonder what Andrew Lewis thinks?

Thank you for your comment, I have been recording the States sitings & some Jersey Radio stuff for I think 14 months. How sad is that.

But did not know why or what I was going to do with them, so now that you & others are showing some interest, Im made up & will do my best to keep this facilty going.

Was the royal court asked to make a judgement on whether it was lawful to suspend Mr Power or did they simply decline to do so?

I think this "correct following of procedure" claim is another aspect of the gross corruption of thought extant in Jersey. These mediocre, yet dangerous, clowns seem to believe that following the correct procedure is the sine qua non of achieving justice or fairness, rationality or rightness.

They seem to have been so corrupted by mindlessly following by rote their established procedure that they have forgotten that it is perfectly possible to do great evil by following procedure to the letter and ignoring, or being unaware of, the greater reality (AKA the whole truth and nothing but the truth) that an unfettered pragmatic empirical view would see.
