Jersey Abuse – UK Labor MP Calls For Inquiry

~Austin Mitchell

MP Austin Mitchell has recently tabled a Commons motion for an independent inquiry to be carried out by a judge from the British mainland.

Mitchell says authorities on Jersey have failed to prevent abuses for decades, adding they have dismissed such claims in the past.

Mitchell says he has no confidence in the local inquiry. He claims because of the "scale and history" there is a "prevailing desire on the part of the Jersey elites to sweep scandal and abuse under the carpet to preserve their reputation".

Kudos to Mr. Mitchell! It is well beyond time for the UK to get involved and expose the Jersey ruling class for what it is.

Now, where the hell is Jack Straw?
