    Now your failures.
    Not supporting the Caldey Island survivors campaign to fund the truth of failure if police etc to investigate historical abuse of children.
    To allow the police to intimidate victims and illegal police interviews.
    Allowing corruption of serving police officer.
    Failure to protect children today in caldey island.
    Failure in duty and care of victims.
    Allowing Dyfed Powys police to run there own rules and ignoring PACE.
    victims support is useless due to them disappearing and no contact
    So I think we need a new person as a police commissioner who will listen to the survivors.
    That’s our campaign
