I watched the BBC 4 Storyville documentary on the Haut de la Garenne childrens’ home scandal in Jersey last night. The FT has a write up on the issue here.
The documentary was new. What it revealed was a damning picture of an island more concerned with financial services than it was with clear evidence of child abuse, even if there was less certain evidence that children died as a result.
I had no involvement in this story, but knew, and in some cases still know many of those involved in it, at least from the political side.
Or is working with Dame Margaret, Lady Hodge, on tax abuse stories in the UK more important than Islington care homes?
