OMG Rico, you were firing the shots back at the clown.
Spot on each time, and polite- please note ILM.
ILM Lie 1- rude letters from RS to ILM. No they weren't you liar.
Listen to ILM wriggle.
OMG Matthew Price. Ug....
Weren't those days just crap. Listening to ILM virtually every morning, for days and days, on the dreadful Matthew Price morning show. It was so dire. So biased. So b******t
And now we know it was all bulls, and we know the victims and the bloggers and the campaigners were right.
Which we knew all along. Such was the force and power of the elite to re-write history, that the likes of Rico were laughed at, put down, became victims of trolls, verbal abuse and threats, etc. etc. For telling the truth. You know, when they laugh at you, you're onto a good thing.
And they spun and they spun and make a total F'up of it.
Because the establishment put its needs above those of the victims.
**** I hate the Jersey Way.

You nailed Ian Le Marquand there mate. Great work. Not bad for a pipe fitter.

I find it interesting how Ian Le Marquand - who was never short of a few words - has gone off into obscurity since leaving public office, only putting in an appearance at the Inquiry. He had a lot to say for himself back in the day. Now, nothing.

I noticed that too. Probably partly due to the fact that the Inquiry concluded that Graham Power's suspension was effectively outside their terms of reference, a view with which I do not agree.

However, it does mean that ILM's shameful role in prolonging Power's suspension is not examined and criticised.

Imagine if ILM was in the current spotlight. Investors would run a mile.

Rico: keep up the good work mate.

Rico,

I've just read your reply to Scott Wickenden on the Politics Jersey Facebook page.

Scott Wickenden says:
"Hi Rico Sorda, I was attending the Inquiry in the capacity of friend [of Andrew Lewis], I was at the time the Vice-Chairman of PAC and was there as a friendly face for Deputy Lewis as any colleague would be expected too."

You rightly replied:
"I just find it amazing that one minute Scott sits at the Care Enquiry offering his support to Deputy Lewis and the next he is sitting in judgement of Deputy Lewis. This is why I asked Scott weeks ago in what capacity he was there as.. I would love to know if the members were split on their decision..Jersey, full of conflicts and interest."

Rico lad, it's worse than that

Scott WIckenden himself must now be in breach of the States Member's Code of Conduct. Under no circumstance - none whatsoever - should Wickenden have been allowed to sit on the panel who sat in judgement of Lewis

He admits - in public - on Facebook - to being a 'friend' of Andrew Lewis.

This is obscene.

What next? Will Scott Wickenden pitch up to a jury trial and say "it's OK your honour, me and the defendant are best mates. Nothing to see here, carry on as you were"

On what planet does this person live?

Please Rico, could you do two things:

1) Post this whole comment on that thread (my role in the civil service means that I can't)
2) Encourage your political contacts for action to be brought against Scott Wickenden for this flagrant breach - by him - of the code of conduct, in that he refused to recuse himself from sitting in judgement on his friend.

This, readers, is THE JERSEY WAY writ large. What next? Phil Bailhache defending Lewis while simultaneously sitting on the PPC panel?

These people need to be firmly told what acceptable standards of governance are. Sitting in judgement on "your friend" is not acceptable. Resign now, Mr Wickenden
