Trial by Fury

Welsh Labour’s Carl Sergeant commits suicide, less than four days after his dismissal by the Welsh Labour Leader. That, folks, are the facts as we know them. The allegations, although not published but are only quoted by ‘informed sources’.

News pages state the allegations ranged from groping to unwanted attention and ‘inappropriate touching’, it has been claimed.

No-one actually knows the sources, apart from senior Welsh Labour figures, including Carwyn Jones, the Welsh leader.

As far as is known, Carl Sergeant was told he was suspended, but not told of the severity of the allegations against him. So either he knew of more allegations ‘in the wind’, or he knew that his behavior had been completely unacceptable, and he had used his position, his office and , of course, his power over staff and others, to ensure that nothing would be said.

His worries must have overcome him, and, in the old words from my days, his life was ended as ‘the balance of his mind was disturbed’.

But my annoyance, my anger, is not aimed at Mr. Sergeant, troubled man that he was: no, my annoyance is aimed fair and square at those who suffered his attentions, his hands and his base sexual urges, if that was what happened: and did nothing about it!

As I have written before, and will no doubt do again, if you want to be vindicated, if you wish the problems to stop, speak out, speak out against the BULLIES of this world; and shame the very devil!

    Or all of the above is speculation on your part.

    JimS,

    and, Sir, your viewpoint is as valid as mine.

      No.
      JimS has stated a fact.
      You have, as he says, put forward speculation.That’s a fact, not an opinion, or a ‘viewpoint’.
      Facts trump opinion.

      If I had to bet then I would bet that your speculation is broadly correct, but that’s not the point of your exchange with JimS, and within the context of the comments of the both of you the one by JimS is stronger than yours.

      It is speculation, Mike. The point you’re making – the bigger issue is that victims of abuse shouldn’t keep quiet about it.

      That some did is suspicious. It makes one think ‘you wanted a leg up, you sold sex for that and now you’ve got it and are safe you can complain about it.’ It demeans victims of domestic abuse.

    MSM not keen to cover Mr Sargeant’s suicide:

    C4 News, 1900
    1900-1935 – Pritti & Boris
    1935-1945 – British Overseas Territories, hurricanes
    1945-1950 – John Prescott’s son, then a bit about Mr Sargeant
    1950-1953 – “Conservative” Sarah “nanny” Wollaston MP attacking Pritti & Boris [I’m a Dr and an MP – I know what is best for you. Anyone have a bandwagon or outrage bus for me today?]
    End

    What ever happened. A man – or woman – is to be considered Innocent until proven guilty in a Court of Law. The ‘Golden Thread’ of Horace Rumpole.

    Accusation is so easy, so ‘protected’, especially when a woman accuses, that smoke from a cigarette will be seen as a forest fire by those who want it to be so.

    From my experience, observing people and life, those who do dastardly things to others rarely (ok, there may be exceptions) feel guilt. They rarely suicide from remorse or from being accused of things that they have in fact done. Shame is not usually a feature of bad people. Indeed, these days one is exhorted not to feel shame. (well, women anyway).

    I have no idea what the accusations were but ‘due process’ was not done nor seen to be done.
