Re: Sentencing of Garry William Dobbie

If you mean this then it appears there was some sort of hearing on 4 September but I can find no further info beyond that:

Re: All this is incredibly sad

The houses are visited on a random basis by an SLT member on virtually every night of the week. It's reassuring to know that this happens now, but it certainly was not happening as recently as the early-mid 1990's. Poulton visited Maine B once while I was there, the only time I ever spoke to him, a...

Re: Can we get transcripts?

Auscript appear to be the company to approach but a transcript for even just a couple of hours is likely to set you back a few hundred pounds. If the school sent its own legal representative to each of the trials then they may have had transcripts made to refer back to. But good luck getting them to...

Re: REMOVAL OF CHOBA MEMBERSHIP

I apologise - I did not know that she was an Old Blue and therefore a member of CHOBA by right. Nevertheless, I stick to my point that this thread is about child abuse, of which, to the best of my knowledge, she is not being accused, so why should she feature here. David :shock: I agree. Regardless...

Re: All this is incredibly sad

Why did Karim apparently not get up to his antics at Eton or the Queens Club? Well Eton is full of self-confident posh youngsters with equally self-confident, sharp-elbowed, well-heeled, well-connected parents whom he hesitated from crossing. And Queens Club likewise in addition to it not being a b...

Re: Annoying car man

You will have to tell us where he goes if you follow him! I am itching to but it's difficult a) having 2 young children and b) the guy's movements are erratic. He doesn't move his vehicles at regular times. For example last week the road was unusually busy so he had to park 60 metres round the corn...

Re: Annoying car man

Is he homeless and living in the camper van but worried he will get moved on? In Seattle there are now a very large number of people doing this, because the rent has more than doubled in the last 8 years. It's the fastest growing city in the US but there's not enough remotely affordable housing. No...

Re: staff accommodation

I just loved Clive Kemp. He was most amazing mentor and person during 3 years in Maine B, It was so sad that he died. He was so fit as well. One of my most cherished Maine B achievements was to take them from last to first in the steeple chase in 1984. I did this by racing individual boys 3 times a...

Re: Annoying car man

Yep but I have zero evidence of any crime, just no reasonable (for me) explanation for his strange behaviour. Even if he has 2 families that don't know about one another that is not in itself a crime either, unless bigamy is involved.

The Church of England was started for the sexual convenience of a king, so it's hardly a surprise anyway, it was corrupt from its inception.

Re: Annoying car man

Ok, so I'm definitely not alone in thinking this behaviour is at worst dodgy and at best weird!
