One useful fact I learned in court was that Karin Ward started writing her memoir in 2008. The very year ex Duncroft women were being contacted by the Police, and the same year bones of care home children were being unearthed in Jersey (not).
Now, whilst burrowing in Jersey, I had an idea that there might be more to Meirion's 'R6' than I had first imagined.
R6 is different from the others, she's does not appear to be linked to anyone or anything, Newsnight wise. But, she has according to Mei, spoken to the Police.
I went back to those annoyingly badly presented pages of comments left on the Duncroft page of friends reunited, to look at R6's comments again seeing as she'd mentioned Jersey. She's the one who had spoken to Jamie Pyatt remember ? But then I looked at another comment posted 25/11/2011 (12/029 App12)
'All the perpetrators who abused me got away with it. The Police wouldn't prosecute others from the Norfolk children's home because they were too old or poorly'
Now back in Jersey in 2008 a woman had allegedly made a complaint about Jimmy.
Moreover, it was a member of the Jersey Careleavers Association who had made this complaint to an inquiry !!
Worse still this woman this same woman had been abused at another home
Could this other home have been in Norfolk ? Karin Ward spent time in a care home in Norfolk. Nothing strange about that, until you read the following article about a woman who cannot be named for legal reasons, dated 18th October 2012
From Dereham Times I can't link page
It has to be Ward doesn't it ? But why the secrecy ?
Back to 2008 and another eye-opening article about Jersey 'survivors'
Goodness Gracious me ! Look who forms part of this guardian task force
All these public meetings and yet NO TRACE of any mention of Jimmy Savile at all ! No moaning about the inquiry back then. No crap cops who didn't bother to write your Savile claims up. And, yes that's the Jersey CLA who hosts the event !
Fast forward 4 years and we have a new JCLA chair (presumably) and Lenny Harper re-writing the story
I'll end this post where I started it, back in App 12 of the Pollard report with a few words cobbled onto the end of an email from Jones to MWT in November 2011. I'm fast becoming a regular visitor to the island myself !
