A dated and highly offensive term that’s beneath you. Just come out with that in the vicinity of the border you’re describing and see how far that gets you.

What is this site coming to?

Canada has also shifted to making Apologising-for-things its primary domestic product. It’s the only trick Trudeau has.

I suspect anothere referendum would return the same result. People who previously voted Leave will vote for anything which is not Remain.
Timing is key. Remainers are outliving the Brexiteers.

Re: Identification.

I suspect that it was not the idea of an ID card but the detail included which annoyed the population. I think you credit the population with far too much discernment. It was unpopular because it was new, far too European an idea, smacked of Big Brother and new. Wiser minds realised that we'd also ...

Re: Identification.

Hang on a minute. I haven't lived in the UK for 14 years now, but are you all saying that there is still no such thing as a government issued ID card? When I first moved to the US, I didn't drive but it was incredibly easy to stroll to the local Department of Motor Vehicles and wait several hours (...

Wikipedia Entry?

A few months ago the wiki entry for CH contained relevant and measured references to the ongoing abuse cases. I see that this is now reduced to a single sentence.

No doubt the school - certainly proactive in this regard, if not others.

Has anyone a copy of the original entry?

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

The Band went to Hertford on one occasion and we marched the girls into lunch. I remember thinking how small the place was and in a town as well, compared to the isolation and size of the Horsham site. A very pleasant day and always nice to get out of the school grounds for a few hours. 99 Red Ball...

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

Bad form to refer to PMs.

I disagree on TOP being negative; it’s a statement that implies a degree of competition, if anything else.

Anyways, sexism. Where exactly? You’re a moderator, and ‘you’re letting this ride’ - on the grounds I was apparently sexist?

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

Where in my posts is there disparagement of Hertford? Regardless of my views on Morrison (which I am entitled to express and others are entitled to disagree with) I feel that simply referring to Hertford as the ‘Other Place’ surfaced a response which seems to be indicative of a wider sense of unhapp...

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

We must hold different views on the meaning of patronising. Which you will no doubt regard as a patronising statement in itself.

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

I see nothing particularly offensive in describing Hertford as The Other Place. I take it you all get the parliamentary allusion? As for Morrison - she was comfortably beyond her sell by date by the time she got to Horsham. So functionally not what was needed - regardless of how nostalgically people...
