The former Jersey Chief Officer Graham Power says the fact that more than 100 victims on Jersey have now received out-of-court settlements and a significant number of civil cases are still pending illustrates the scale of the abuse. He says he understands why victims mistrust the local force to investigate the Savile allegations: “The scale of abuse that occurred in this small community was so great that it seems to be beyond doubt that persons in authority must have known something of what was taking place, and, from what we know so far, they appear to have done nothing to protect the children who were being abused in establishments operated by their own government. This is a matter which merits honest and independent examination.”
Alan Collins, a solicitor with Pannone, a legal firm specialising in abuse cases that is representing 58 of the victims, says initially all the focus was on Haut de la Garenne, its workers and management. “Jimmy Savile was a sideshow. I honestly couldn’t say how many have named Savile. But there were several people who named him, it was plural, not singular. All the allegations need to be looked at now en masse for similar fact evidence, because now we are seeing a bigger jigsaw. Each individual complaint makes more sense now. Savile is dead but others who abused them are not.”
The Attorney General, William Bailhache, issued a statement in June 2009 stating that two historic abuse investigations were dropped because of a lack of evidence. “Cases of this nature are often difficult. There is rarely any independent evidence, and often the cases come down to being the word of one person against another… A decision not to bring criminal proceedings does not necessarily mean that those who have made complaints are not believed. A decision not to prosecute means only that the Attorney General, having fully considered all of the available evidence and other information, has decided that an acquittal is more likely than a conviction.”
TAP – Come on, Messrs Bailhache. If three or more victims all allege against one perpetrator, with details in common, you have a case. Someone’s refusing to use their imagination, allowing the criminals a free ride. HM Attorney General Jersey William Bailhache is the brother of the former Bailiff of Jersey Sir Philip Bailhache.
100,000 children go missing in Britain every year (The Children’s Society).
A Jersey senator, Stuart Syvret, talked of cover-up, and the system in Jersey failing. He suffers continual repercussions for having spilled the story to the media. His part of the story is covered in the pienmash film underneath.
Children being abused sexually at Haut de la Garenne were told they would be put into a mental institution if they repeated allegations. Many died trying to talk about what was done to them. Many just disappeared. The cellars at the children’s home indicated many might have died there, bones with evidence of cuts and fire. The survivors try to talk still, but are discouraged by allegations made against them in turn, and ignored by the legal profession. Lenny Harper, a Police officer tried to deal with the crimes correctly and bring out the evidence. The Attorney general described him as ”a problem”. He was accused of breaking the Data Protection Act and other bureaucratic errors to silence him.
After this excellent film was made, the sister of Bill Maloney, who had made allegations against members of the Royal Family being involved peronally in abuse of children at Haut de la Garenne, died mysteriously. (These allegations were repeated at the Rally Against Child Abuse by Bill Maloney)
Bill Maloney, who remembers the screams in the night from his time in ‘care’, sums up – the fight against satanism is essential to the spiritual wellbeing of this planet.
Sir Philip Bailhache has resigned since the film, and is now in 2012 Assistant Chief Minister of Jersey.
Bill’s sister Dyana, who funded the film, and was in ‘care’ as a child, died of causes unascertained after the film was made.
The island of Jersey, off the north coast of France, is a British Crown dependency.

On 18 January 2009, the Sunday Mail told of the Jersey Cop’s Fury As He Faces Charges On Child Home Probe
Lenny Harper is the brave former police chief who was investigating child abuse and child murder on the island of Jersey.
This child abuse has been linked to powerful child abuse rings worldwide.
Top people on Jersey were alleged to be involved in horrific crimes.
Now the authorities on Jersey have put Lenny Harper under criminal investigation.
Lenny Harper, who recently retired from the police and who lives in Scotland, has been called back to Jersey for a court hearing
Harper refused because he fears arrest as a “scapegoat”.
Harper has been accused of keeping vital information from the police team that replaced him.
He is also alleged to have breached data protection and official secrets laws by leaking information about the investigation to the media.
On 13 November 2008, Harper received a letter from Jersey attorney-general William Bailhache ordering him to court on 28 January 2009.
Harper denies withholding evidence.
He said: “I have been ordered to appear in Jersey at the Royal Court to give evidence and provide notebooks.
“They also want to see a farewell card which my former staff signed which they say contains evidence.
“The order is not enforceable in the United Kingdom.
“I have no evidence whatsoever to give or documents which the Jersey authorities do not have. They have spent many thousands of pounds trying to implicate me in Official Secrets Act and data protection offences on no evidence.
“I am being told certain officials in Jersey are falsely briefing against me and I would need to be stupid to expose myself to these people.”
Harper is prepared to answer the questions in a British court but not in a Jersey court.
He said: “They are using me as a scapegoat so they can drop all the abuse charges.
“Nothing should detract from the fact that there remain serious, credible allegations about the abuse of children in care in Jersey and these must be investigated.”
Graham Power, Jersey’s chief of police, did not please the top people on Jersey. He was suspended and is being investigated.
UPDATE – comments point this way
Derek Ivor Breashur McCulloch
OBE (18 November 1897 – 1 June
1967) was a BBC Radio presenter
and producer, who is best
remembered as “Uncle Mac” in
Children’s Favourites and
Children’s Hour and for playing
‘Larry the Lamb’ in Toytown
Herbie Hancock said…
I concur with messrs Wales and anon. Surely, the smart money must be on ‘Uncle Dick’ being ‘Uncle Mac’ and ‘Larry the lamb’?
Childrens Hour with Uncle Mac – always at five o’clock, although strictly speaking in our part of the country it was a quarter of an hour later – with the children from Wales having part of the the programme in their language. Today we are used to quizzes – on radio and TV, but the first I remember was Regional Round. Teams of children competed from BBC centres in various parts of the country – Bristol, Manchester, London, Cardiff, etc. and the question master was Uncle Mac. Aunty Violet was in charge of the Manchester team – of course Violet Carson (later Ena Sharples of Coronation Street.
TAP – who is Auntie Gladys from Simpson’s writings below? Answers to comments please as before. Not Violet Carson surely?
He recounts the tale of his early working days at the BBC Radio Newsroom. He is given a story to write up that had just come through the wires, relating to the death of the very popular BBC Radio Children’s Entertainer ‘Uncle Dick’.
Simpson has to telephone Dick’s equally famous partner, ‘Aunty Gladys’ for a QUOTE about his passing, along with comments relating to his work etc…
Gladys responded to Simpson’s breaking ‘sad’ news with LAUGHTER, and is quoted as saying:
“That evil old bastard, I hope he died in agony!”
When Simpson pressed her for an explanation, Gladys recounted how, week after week, children from all over the Country would win competitions to visit the BBC studios and meet Uncle Dick.
Uncle Dick would welcome them, show them around, give them lunch;
“then take them to the Gent’s and interfere with them“.
If any parents ever complained, she stated, the Director General of the BBC would assert that there was clearly a mistake, that the
“Nation wouldn’t ever understand such an accusation against a much-loved figure“.
Simpson, believing that he had the scoop of the Century, made copious notes and quickly wrote up his copy relating to how Britain’s best loved Children’s entertainer was, in fact, a paedophile.
When he passed the story to his EDITOR, he was met with the following retort:
“You stupid, unthinking, ignorant, destructive young idiot!”
The Editor then turned to the newsroom typist and started to dictate, without notes, for BROADCAST:
“Uncle Dick’s partner for many years, Aunty Gladys, told the BBC tonight that she was “deeply saddened” by his death“.
She said, “he had a wonderful way with children,”.
From helpfree the earth – another Uncle Dickie
Another book, the Kincora Scandal connects Lord Dickie Mountbatten to a child prostitution vice ring in Belfast, Ireland. Authorities failed to intervene at the Kincora care home for boys until 1981, despite reports over the years of child sexual abuse.
The operators of the Kincora child prostitution ring were eventually convicted in 1981 of the RITUAL sexual abuse of defenceless young boys who were sold like prostitutes. No charges were ever brought against the VIP customers of royals, politicians, lawyers, and judges. Belfast citizens finally had reason to celebrate when Prince Philip’s paedophile uncle was killed by a an IRA bomb planted in his boat.
What kind of childhood did the Queen’s German Husband, Prince Philip have? The answer can be found in a biographical book called Elizabeth: Behind Palace Doors. Philip’s mother was Princess Alice Battenberg – grandaughter of queen Victoria. She was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic and committed to a mental institution in Switzerland. Philip’s German father ran off with a wealthy mistress which left the boy parentless.
Philip’s uncle – George Mountbatten – became his surrogate father and legal guardian. Unfortunately, Uncle George had the same perverse reputation as Uncle Dickie. George Mountbatten kept a scandalous collection of child pornography that he bound into volumes and emblazoned with the family crest.
Most disturbing were pictures of family orgies and beastiality in which children and animals were sexual participants. The question is – was George’s adopted son Philip a participant?
