Public Inquiry Into Haute de la Garenne? Too Little, Too Late

It seems Frank Walker suddenly woke up and decided to take an interest in the child abuse allegations and Haut de la Garenne by calling for a public inquiry. According to Walker, a full public inquiry is the only way to ensure complete transparency.

This would actually be funny if it wasn’t an apparent attempt by Frank to shore up his and his colleagues damaged reputations.

Let us not forget that last month,
a group of MPs, asked the UK government to conduct an independent inquiry.

On Thursday, Walker plans to ask the Council of Ministers to take the idea to the States of Jersey. Walker was forced to make the announcement early because the information was revealed on Senator Stuart Syvret's Blog!

According to the BBC: Walker said once the criminal investigation was completed, questions about the way children have been looked after in the past might still need answering.

However, he said until the police investigation was completed, it would be unclear exactly what questions would need to be asked.

Now, here’s the part that is truly laughable and disingenuous: The scope and the people carrying out the proposed inquiry would be decided by all politicians.

Excuse me? Isn’t this part of the whole problem? Isn’t it how this entire scandal has remained covered-up for so long? I am totally dumbfounded!
