Now, hold on a minute, in fact hold on a few years, because that is exactly what SOME people have appeared to have done since the subject of Savile and Jersey was first mentioned. We KNOW that the sun tried it on with Jimmy in 2008 but no one appears to have made any allegations against the man until 2012.
BUT, that's not what certain people including Collins who now works with Dux, would have you believe. Oh no, Savile was named as an abuser allegedly, in the 2008 inquiry, according to this woman that is.
Yes, that's Carrie Modral sandwiched in between Bill big mouth Maloney and some other campaigner, and YES that does say 2010. And yes, the same Carrie M who claims to have told the 2008 inquiry naming Savile as a perpetrator of abuse. I kid you not, for Modral's claims form part of an article about an iceberg that Jimmy was merely the 'tip' of !
What ? someone told the Police and nothing happened ? Did this someone not watch Panorama ? Did they not see the sun article etc etc ? Even Collins wasn't aware of any claims against Savile, or if he was, he wasn't telling anyone. And, it's not as if folk were not taking claims of historic abuse very very seriously. It's not as of these campaigner's going to be silenced by anyone
Back to the money and one must never take one's eyes of it for a second, and the revelation that the claimants as they stood in early 2008, might not see a penny
A 'loophole' in Jersey but not in the UK according to the Mail
Now, would you be surprised to know that, in the case of HDLG, the claimants were still fighting to be paid in August 2011 ?
Collins was representing 36 claimants and he was getting sick of waiting. Yet still, no mention of any high roller's or ex-Prime Minister's in any of the press stories at least !
Which brings me back to Carrie M and those alleged claims made in 2008. You see, I wanted to know more about an alleged 'bribe' said to have been made by Jimmy to the Jersey authorities to shut them up ! Imagine my surprise when I found her on twitter
No one answered Matt's question, well they couldn't really could they ? The Jersey beans weren't confirming or denying this either. That would be covered in the latest inquiry born of the latest HDLG guest list they say. Another bunch of politicians cop out
Ms Modral seems to be someone who is informed, all things Savile related not so much by alleged 'victims' but by press reports. 2010 ? she must be on about this, the rally against child abuse held in London
But let's head back to 2007 or when ever it was that one decent social worker decided to blow the whistle on the treatment meted out to some of these poor kids in HDLG.
But no one outside Jersey seemed to give a damn until bones were unearthed at the Bergerac location. And, it wasn't just Sanchia's crew who got involved in the matter. Oh no, the NSPCC were on standy to help 'victims' too !
You see, the world's press was not interested in the mistreatment of kids in Jersey. They only descended on the Island once someone mentioned bones and torture chambers etc. I know this because Sanchia Berg wrote this in November 2008
No proof of any murders were found and that particular inquiry ended in 2010, only to be re-opened when NEW evidence surfaced. And this time it involved famous folk and 'VIP's and ... well you know the rest ! The lawyer's now had more than a "straw man" they had access to a much bigger pot of money .... ours ! He must have been delighted when you consider what he wrote back in 2008
It's called 'vicarious liability' guys and gals and where there's money there's muck and once enough folk start slinging, you never know where it will land !
