"Honoured" to meet a random dictator


Being a politician is a pretty surreal experience on the best of days. It's never dull and even in Jersey we often find ourselves lucky enough to enjoy a political theatre that matches up to the excitement of other jurisdictions (or at least it does if you're a geek like me).

Today was strange.

Once again, our Chief Minister has gone abroad to represent the Island and meet representatives of other governments to promote Jersey. I have no problem with that.

Again, he has met with representatives of countries which have human rights records that are less than impressive. I also have no problem with that.

But what I can't get my head around is Senator Gorst's choice of words.

After meeting with Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed Al-Khalifa (the Finance Minister of Bahrain), he tweeted a picture of the two of them together with a caption saying he was "honoured" to meet him.

Really?

The Chief Minister has met some interesting people in his line of work. Whether they be Kings and Queens, Presidents and Prime Ministers, or even ordinary Jersey folk who have done extraordinary things. How does Sheikh Al-Khalifa match up to them?

He is not a democratic politician. He is a member of the ruling family of Bahrain which has been in charge for hundreds of years, ruling with an iron fist and having zero-tolerance for opposition.

Torture is widespread. Since the 2011 Arab Spring protests, a hundred dissidents have been murdered and thousands have been wounded. They even called in the Wahabist and ISIS-backing Saudi Arabian military to help them brutally put down these protests.

Basically, these people are really nasty.

Why is it an honour to meet someone like him? Why was this word necessary?

I get that part of diplomacy and politics means that you have to meet with people you disagree with. Sometimes it means meeting with nasty people if it's for the greater good. But what is the benefit of cosying up to people and inflating their ego by acting as if there isn't something fundamentally wrong with their agenda?

Sheikh Al-Khalifa and his tyrannical family have blood on their hands. It's not an honour to meet them. At best, it's just business.

But things got even stranger when States Members received an advance copy of a press release on this subject.

Here is the relevant bit -
The Chief Minister has also met with His Excellency Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed Al-Khalifa, who has been Minister of Finance in the Kingdom of Bahrain since January 2005. Minister Al Khalifa is also a member of the Development Committee of the World Bank Group and IMF. 
Jersey and Bahrain have a long-standing relationship and the Chief Minister will be making an official visit to Bahrain later this year to enhance Jersey’s commercial and political links with the Kingdom. 
Senator Gorst commented: “We place great importance on the Island’s positive relationship with the Kingdom of Bahrain, and I was pleased to be able to meet with His Excellency to discuss future opportunities for partnership between our jurisdictions.”

Apparently Jersey has a long-standing relationship with Bahrain.

Did you know that? I didn't.

Jersey does not have any people from Bahrain living in Jersey at all, according to the last census. I doubt many Jersey people live in Bahrain.

We have a long-standing relationship with France. We don't have one with Bahrain. It's just silly to say we do.

These comments just aren't serious.

Is it too much to ask that our leaders speak plainly and cut this sort of unnecessary BS? It just looks a bit silly.

  5. Hi Sam

    As you will probably know, the eyes of the world will be on offshore law firm Appleby this week:

    https://www.theguardian.com/news/2017/nov/05/paradise-papers-leak-reveals-secrets-of-world-elites-hidden-wealth

    Recall that Appleby, in Jersey, before the merger with "Appleby Spurling Hunter" was Bailhache Labesse.

    In Jersey, Appleby = Bailhache Labesse.

  6. Being the Chairman of the group keeping an eye on the Care Inquiry have you been trawling through the evidence provided in witness statements? Loads of this will probably go AWOL in being officially archived but some of it that seems to have been brushed under the carpet by Bailhache and Co and the Jersey msm really demands some public exposure and questions. What do you think Deputy? It does show that those who run our judicial system are not fit for the role.

    1. The Scrutiny panel has been focusing so far on the response from the Council of Ministers to the Care Inquiry recommendations. There's a huge amount of detail to go through and questions to be asked to shift their position if need be.

      If you have any specific examples of evidence that you think we need to have drawn to our attention, please let me know. My private email address is smezec@hotmail.com

      Delete
    2. A very good place to start chairman would be the blog that the excellent Voiceforchildren did on the subject of Mr K as the Care Inquiry allowed him to call himself amongst others when he gave evidence as three different people and the former AG William Bailhache.

      This makes clear that we have evidence our AG of the time and now Bailiff falsly pretended in not prosecuting an accused individual that he had had glowing reports as to his job performace. The truth was he had not had any supervision reports. Ask yourself what this means if only for the victims?

      Your panel could and should also look at the evidence given by the former police officer Mr Anton Cornelissin who revealed that the police were blocked in going after the former Vice-Principle of Victoria College subsequently given a job as a Royal Court Jurat regarding evidence he bullied at least one abused College boy in to silence.

      Our current and previous two Bailiffs all looked the other way and allowed a man police described as of zero integrity to remain sitting in court for more than a decade. How can any court decisions such a man made be considered safe? How can we think people who allowed this to happen can be fit to preside over the States and control what politicians can and cannot ask or bring propositions about?

      Thinking about another comment on this page have you noticed how a man described as in his 40s who wanted the Bailiff role ended has now suddenly started to wreck the removal? Godd luck.

  7. Do you know if Reform Jersey will be asking questions as to why the holder of a States credit card on which significant amounts of inappropriate purchases were made was not charged?

    Even more worrying from a taxpayer's perspective will anyone be asking the Chief Minister to put the public's mind at rest that the man in his 40s at the centre of all this was not himself a minister at the time?

    Or will it all be swept under the carpet no questions asked? Thank you in advance for your time I appreciate that you are very busy.

  9. I too find all of these wrecking motions to prolong the dual role deeply disturbing.

    If the Bailiff has no political role as Philip Bailhache claims then why the obsession with remaining as president of the States?

    Even with Gorst's deeply flawed propisition this would still allow the Bailiff the wholly unjustified position as civic head. It is all about power.

    The above points about the current and recent Bailiffs in regard to false statements and allowing obviously unfit people to serve as Jurats only amplifies the need to rid the States of such individuals.

    But which way will the vote go? Putting it off till the next assembly is as good as admitting it will never happen. Don't you agree?

    1. I agree that the proposition doesn’t go as far as I’d like it to, but it’s not deeply flawed. It’s just less than perfect.

    4. It might help the odds if you raised the Mr K/Bailiff and dishonest Jurat points above in the question time right before the debate. Might wake a few of the snoozers and the toadies up in time to think about what an against vote will continue and get them to vote with the progressives like Reform.

  11. Have you noticed that in the JEP story on juvenile sexual offences a poster and so the JEP itself have broken the P19 law publishing that such young people should be drowned? Will the JEP and their reader be prosecuted though? Of course they won't. The P19 law is only there to silence investigative bloggers and enforce the dictatorship. Question in the States please as others are asking. Fully support the jurat issue being raised too. Don't know the details of Mr K and the former AG but sounds like a stonker too. Get on it Sam!

      Firstly the Dual Role debate is beinbg sabotaged in to a farce by the Bailhache Gang with these pathetic amendments.

      Secondly not one question calling for explanation as to how we can support a judicial system that allows AGs to quote false evidence and individuals who helped cover up abuse to be Jurats.

      Thirdly no questions about States credit cards abuse.

      Fourthly nothing about what is going on with the new police chief.

    2. Being there all month or even past May 2018 is probably the point of these shyster amendments?

      I don't understand Ozouf's latest one about the referenedum. Could you briefly clarify please if possible?

      Delete
    3. It's complicated. I’ll try to explain as best I can.

      If Bailhache's amendment is accepted, then there will be a referendum and if a majority vote in favour of change, then there will be change.

      If Ozouf's amendment is successful, then the States will agree to end the dual role of the Bailiff, and this will be scheduled to go ahead, but there will be a referendum on the subject, which can stop it from happening, but only if a majority vote to stop it.

      So, it’s basically its about default positions.

      Bailhache’s amendment means the default position is that there is no change, unless the vote is approved. Ozouf's amendment is that the default position is that there will be change, unless the vote goes against (with an absolute majority of voters opposing it).

      Hope that makes sense.

      Delete
    4. Yes. Thanks. But what a bloody farce. Why are our Bailiffs past and present so desperate to oversee the States?

      Power.

      Hope you manage to stop all of this crap. Wish you had a few more people in there with you to tear it apart. People like Pitman(s) and Wimberley would have been a great help.

      My bet is we will hear loads of members droning on about the importance of maintaining tradition. What an island. What a government.

    5. There will be a handful who will decry the “anglicisation” of the Island, including some who are usually opposed to the Council of Ministers.

      But, believe it or not, the IJCI report has changed some member's views on this. I know a handful who will support it this time round who have previously opposed it.

      It’ll happen one day. Maybe not tomorrow, but who knows. I’m an optimist!

  20. Jon, I'm happy for my conduct to be raised in any forum. But just remember that when I defend myself it will necessitate naming you and pointing out that you're a criminal who has spent 5 years harassing me with these messages, whilst also attacking victims of child abuse. It's only by doing that that I can provide the appropriate context for my actions.

    I think most people will sympathise with my response to you when they learn what a reprehensible person you are.

    As for an FoI on Geoff's record - that will probably be denied as the answer is already clearly in the public domain. He helped a few old people apply for postal votes, which was a crime at the time, although it is no longer a crime because it was absurd to consider it an inappropriate thing to do.

    5. Shows how the law is manipulated just to attack selected candidates. I remember how it was revealed that Geoff and Shona were not the only ones who breached the law but were the only two prosecuted.

      I can even remember the debate date because I was ill at home listening in. Last one of March 2009. Prosecuting Attorney General was our current Bailiff. He appears very good at selective use of evidence.

      Out of interest why was the law changed back? I know many people at the time claimed it was not Human Right's compliant. Was that the reason?

      Delete
    6. I didn't know about this change either. A very sensible move. Many disabled and/or elderly folk just would not be able to vote without caring candidates knocking on their door. I too would like to know when this was changed, why and where I can read the law or debate, if it was debated. Could you point me in the right direction if that is possible?

      Delete
    7. I’m sorry to say that I don’t know when the change was. I think it was before my time as a States Member. I think it may have been passed as part of a package of other administrative measures and without much of a fuss.

      Delete
    8. Obviously was not Human Rights compliant then. How about a written question when you have one spare to find out? I seem to remember Deputy Bob Hill once asking that all of these laws passed as apparently being Human Rights compliant include a paragrapgh as to why this was so. Got nowhere with it of course.

      And wasn't it Deputy Higgins who stated that when at Jersey Finance he and others were pressured to state that changes were Human Rights compliant even if they knew they were not? Bringing back Hill's proposition would be a good one for Reform I reckon. But the reasons for this postal vote law change would definitely be interesting to know.

      The old boy three doors from us is 84 and not very mobile at all. If no one could help him with this sort of thing he would not be able to vote even if he wanted to. We need to show more understanding in our society.

    1. Indeed, it would be impossible to provide impartial coverage of this “story” because it would inevitably require identifying some of the complainants who are either fascists or criminals. It’s fun to have a go at politicians in the press, but I doubt they’d have the guts to stick it to some of these deplorables.

      Even though three complaints were upheld, they were wrong to be. One relates to me referring to a political campaigner as a racist because he stood up in a public forum and said we couldn’t let Arabs move to the Island because they'd rape our wives and daughters. Standing up to racism is a legitimate political action and PPC were misguided. The other relate to private disputes regarding a family matter where I just wasn’t very polite (given the circumstance, I was incredibly restrained). The new Commissioner for Standards has made it clear that those sorts of matters should not come under Code of Conduct complaints.

      I’ve done nothing wrong and the rest of the complaints were coordinated from the racist Real Rock page as an attempt to intimidate me into silence. They’re a bit sore that it hasn’t worked.

      My only mistake is that I chose not to press charges against one of them when the police asked if I wanted to when this person had been caught posing a demonstrable violent threat to my safety. It was a stupid mistake, but I’ve learnt my lesson and won’t do it again.

  33. We're done for tonight now Jon. Time for your beddybyes I think.

    Just remember, when you focus your attention on me, you’re not focusing it on victims of child abuse like usual. I'm okay with that.

  34. We will never see house prices go down whilst vested interest Ozouf and his ilk invest in property development. They are all in it to make big bucks and do not give a FF if people struggle after.

  35. The pre-Christmas stress must be getting to our Jon H. He is now arguing with himself as 25Red, Peppa and his new incarnation Kingsman about Ozouf on the Rag.No doubt trying to convince himself these are different and real people. How he links every story to Reform is you have to say quite hilarious. Too much time on hands and not enough real people in his life.

  36. Poor old Sharrock. Now that the excellent Voiceforchildren seems to be on extended sabbatical Mr Red Tidler has nowhere to go with his obsessions but the JEP echo chamber. Makes a change from him and his two fellow lunatics chatting to each other on Politics Jersey with free screech using their two hundred fake IDs. If Reform Jersey really care about helping the needy they would help this social inadequate get a job. Surely the office loo needs cleaning?

    The news says Jersey folk drink a glass of wine a day. We need research about how much Stella Trolly McTroll face Jon drinks. Must double the rest of the island's intake?

  39. So Reform Jersey is the higher Tax Party.
    25% Income Tax failed *thank fuck* but a 20% Corporation Tax so higher food prices for the people struggling.
    What a trio of crooks you really are.

    1. “Crooks” says the guy who gets drunk and threatens to kill people who look after people who campaign against child abuse.

      And we didn’t vote in favour of the retail tax you cretin.

    2. Ah fuck off, you've said this shit time and time again and nobody cares. Child abuse, you are a fucking child.
      You are the higher tax party, that's proved beyond doubt and you did vote for Article 7 so stop lying.
      Crooks, vote fraudsters and internet bullies.

    4. The unemployed goon keeps away from anyone he attacks in person. This worm is a keyboard warrioe only. A drunken, embittered, hate-filled social misfit not big enough to even abuse his victims in his own name.

    5. The "25 graham 73 digger barnes who red peppers his tiddler with kingsman" seems to have succeeded at one thing on the JEP site- after much unpleasantness and threats to other people there, his abuse has effectively closed the comments section to all- a clear case of a minority spoiling it for the majority. The mystery remains- despite numerous complaints/self evident harassment of reform members, this person isn't banned but instead the JEP accommodates him by closing all comments. Does anyone know why this troll seems to be allowed to get away with his behaviour?

  40. What a strange fellow. He must be the same person who posts rubbish on the JEP site and then moans about "freedom of speech" and tries to get others banned. He is red tiddles 25 wanKingsman peppa, in case anyone hasn't yet clocked on. Amazingly, the JEP allows him to carry on his abuse, even though many complain about his behaviour. Most odd.

  41. About time you updated your blog is it not? Regular stories keep people interested. Not as if there isn't enough judicial corruption going on in Jersey enver mind ministerial incompetence. With voiceforchildren closing down you could be picking up on the traffic.

  42. Time for a new blog subject? Is your Scrutiny panel looking at the Care Inquiry recommendations still working? If so will any of you be asking questions on what the Chief Minister will be doing (nothing for certain) on revelations set out in sigificant evidence that successive Bailiffs have coluded with the protection of abusers, letting them serve both in the Honorary police and Court? Happy New Year and roll on the May election.

      Jon is on here because he supports people who cover up abuse being rewarded with the prestigous position of being a Jurat, and just as bad if not worse, people who actually abuse being allowed to stay on as Honorary police officers. Worrying isn't it. Even for someone with a conviction for harrassing people.

  44. Kingsman Jon, obviously taking five minutes off from his Red25 and Peppa fake avatars says on the Rag on line that money should be diverted from Overseas Aid to help locals like him who need foodbanks. What do you think? Is Overseas Aid funding too high? Surely we can divert some of the £5.000.000 unnecessarily given to Jersey Finance to help Jersey's poorest? And shouldn't those who make themselves unemployable like you stalker be put on some kind of States work scheme so they can actually do something positive for their benefits? Got be helpful in weening such people off the internet 24/7.

  47. Thought you might have something to say about your former colleagues the Pitmans' press release? Says a lot that while Voice has tweeted it out our State media hasn't even reported on it. Talk about treat us like mushrooms in the interests of the Jersey way.

    1. I've been on public record saying that I think that Le Breton should never have been made a Jurat and absolutely should not have been allowed to take part in the Pitman's case. That was a travesty and is symptomatic of the rot which lies in our establishment circles in Jersey.

    Are Reform Jersey standing any candidates in ST Mary and when do you launch your campaign, manifesto, etc?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm sorry to say that a candidate in St Mary is quite unlikely (unless someone wants to volunteer). But we will have a candidate in the Senatorial election which St Mary voters can vote for.

      The full campaign launch and manifesto will be at some point at the end of March.
