Liberation speeches stir up a storm
By Carly Lockhart_
ISLANDERS were 'disgusted' and 'offended' by the speeches made by the Chief Minister and the Bailiff on Liberation Day, according to Deputy Gerard Baudains.
The St Clement Deputy said that his phone had not stopped ringing over the weekend with people calling to voice their anger and sadness at how Jersey's most important holiday had been 'hijacked' in order to blame the international media for embellishing the truth about the Haut de la Garenne abuse scandal.
Deputy Baudains said that many Islanders had called him in floods of tears while others had said that they were close to walking out of Liberation Square during the Bailiff's speech when he called for an end to the media's 'remorseless denigration of Jersey.'
All I can say is wowzers! We'll have to wait and see how long this lasts...
