You may not have watched this video. It is an interesting 59 minutes.

"AUDIO INTERVIEW: Three senior citizens of Jersey tell their story about a major serving politician" section, refers to the story which is common knowledge on the Island, and has also been related to me by many friends and acquaintances in Jersey.  The documentary was made some years past, (2008) and the members of the States have changed since then. It is well documented in other places that there is a "secrecy culture" within the Jersey "establishment" and within the Jersey States, which has made victims of both former Jersey politicians and police investigators who have been discredited and removed from office. The victims of the "Historic Child abuse" have yet to achieve justice and many ordinary people of the Island have been subjected to intimidation by the States and prominent establishment figures. As I have argued before, perhaps the time has come for the States to be reminded that the the Crown retains residual responsibility for the "good government" of the island and will intervene "in the event of a fundamental breakdown in public order or the rule of law, endemic corruption in the government or other extreme circumstances".
With the weight of mounting evidence to support the view that there is something very wrong with governance of Jersey, the time for intervention is now.
