Comments from Bob Hill's Jersey blog

  1. Interesting question.

    Given that the Dean has already apologised for his mistakes it seems that there cannot be smoke without a fire so why apologise for mistakes if he did not make any?.

    As the Bishop could only withdraw the Dean's commission but not suspend him it is open to speculation that the Bishop does not have the authority to discipline the Dean.

    It would all to simple for the Bishop to come clean to end the speculation. But coming clean and keeping things simple does not appear to be on anyone's agenda.

    For the interest of readers, On Sunday after the 8am news on Radio Jersey I will be discussing the issue of the Bishop receiving the Steel Report.

  2. Bob.

    Well done for standing HG's corner this morning on State Radio. What does it say about the Jersey church community when NONE of them will publicly support the victim? It is all playing into the hands of Bailhache and his ilk where everybody seems to be talking about the bureaucracy of all the different reports and nobody talking about the abuse and victim.

    One could not help noticing the hypocrisy of the BBC going on about a hugely redacted report after it had been through the different lawyers etc. It was the BBC, along with the rest of the island's State Media, who published the, around 90% redacted, Wiltshire Report, against the former Chief Police Officer Graham Power QPM and didn't question it.

    Not only did they publish this report (un-questioned) but have refused to, or buried, the former Chief Officers RESPONSE.

    You said it this morning, and it has been said by many people, that the Steele Report will not be worth the paper it is written on and will only serve to harm the victim, HG, even further. One cannot help thinking that this is the intention of some and is a damming indictment of the culture in this island despite the Haut de la Garenne atrocities, and cover up. Nothing has changed and the victims continue to be abused over, and over again, while lawyers line their pockets.
