Operation Blast

Post by boatyboy on Sun 15 Nov 2009, 2:27 pm

Deputy Mike Higgins top ex civil servant and a man of deep social conscience is asking his fellow States members to open and enquiry led by an out side QC on operation BLAST.

Operation BLAST consisted of secret files being kept on Jersey politicians without their knowledge or consent? He will no doubt be asking, who instigated the operation carried out by the States police? What were their motives? And why politicians were not informed ? This scenario is not unlike J Edgar Hoover of the FBIs' secret dossiers held on American Senators and politicians years ago. The question surely must be that if any politician in the Jersey assembly votes no to the enquiry ………. why?

SUSPENDED police chief Graham Power has been suspended again – this time over the keeping of secret files on States Members as part of Operation Blast.

The former Magistrate also revealed that disciplinary action was likely against some of those involved in Operation Blast, which involved a select group of top officers keeping secret files on States Members.

Come on Boatyboy, no minister wants to start such an enquiry, it will mean that they would be that they would be perscuted by the "Powers that rule the Island"

Rather like the Jersey Health and Social Security dept.

Voted 30 to 20 against having an enquiry into mangement and efficiency etc.

The good news is, 5 years ago, it would have been 45 against 5 for.

To finish all the ex health ministers voted in favour of an inquiry. What does that tell you ?

Times they are a'changing ( as the song goes) but slowly.

Interesting point BB about what seems to be a more coherent and united opposition, let's hope this will strengthen even further at the next round of elections.

On another point what exactly has happened to the Verita report? Why are no States members asking questions about this? We were told it would be completed by the beginning of October, that's nearly two months ago. I have it on good authority that the report is in the possession of some people in Jersey, so when do we, the public who pay their wages, find out what really happened three years ago?

Good point shafted about Verita,

The last I heard it was drafted but offered to people for the comments before completion. Something to do with righ to reply.

As you say, lets look forwarded to seeing it in the public domain. After all, the public are the major shareholders in the hospital and its running.

The reason for dragging this into Vuedesisles large public spotlight again is because the Wilshire police who are employed to report on this and other policing matters have finished their report. The Wiltshire police are delving into Jersey policing, including operation blast and should make interesting reading. It should be noted that it has overun the time scale ( March 2009) and budget.
The Justice Minister Ian Le Marquand, a retired judge, will no doubt study it closely as will the public when it is released, which should be any day now.

Can of worms or big tins of white paint, we shall see ?
