Well I suppose you could say that the male population has since the dawn of time steered the world and look where we are now.

Re: Politics

Apart from the fact that Sweden has never had a female prime minister. Which is a shame because women make better leaders.

Re: Politics

On the other hand leaving the EU is quite an interesting experiment which I am sure will be followed closely by millions of Euro sceptics in other European lands. Not really being affected by the country leaving it is quite pleasant to sit on the side-line and watch. First Thatcher and now May...wha...

Food at CH

The other day I was telling my children about life at CH and we started talking about the food that was served, and I have found that my memory fails me on this subject. I remember that the amount of food served was adequate, sometimes better sometimes not so good. The one thing that I remember well...

Re: Poor disciplinary C.H. staff

J.R. seems by speaking his mind 'upset' some people, but that is not his fault in fact it is the education from CH that is at fault! A post of his nearly eleven years ago makes this plain.

Re: Poor disciplinary C.H. staff

Just for the record but in Scandinavia there is the " du" and "ni " where the "ni" is being phased out. In fact one is thought to be somewhat impolite if you use ni.

Re: Fives versus Squash

Personally I enjoyed playing fives rather than squash. It was easier to borrow someones gloves rather than than a raquet that could easily be smashed to bits.

Re: Sex 'n' Drugs 'n' Rock'n'Roll Part 1: Substance Abuse

Remember saying to someone in Col B (about 1972) I want to learn to smoke! A couple of days later a proud owner of 10 Number 10 or Number 6. I think that smoking gave me cause to seek privacy something that was lacking at CH. Remember in my last year 74 going on a sunday evening down to the railway ...

Re: Punishments at CH

Not sure about the bring back flogging bit. I seem to have spent hours waiting outside various headmasters/housemasters studies in the sixties/seventies waitng for the cane or slipper. Did no use at all. I think that sometimes I got into trouble just to irritate them. One of the few teachers I had ...

Re: Punishments at CH

Thanks to JR I've just re-read this thread and see others write my own thoughts. Kit Aitken would use the cane or house shoe - despite multiple hidings of my face in his sofa I never worked out how he decided on the instrument of torture. Certainly the posterior was covered and I could never sugges...

Re: Hello

Have to agree it was a hell hole.
With masters who nowadays would be locked up ( apart from one or two who were actually human) and a headmaster who could have starred in " Silence of the Lambs".
hated the place and have not forgiven my parents for sending me there. CH 1968-74.
