Re: All this is incredibly sad

I cannot recall CMES EVER visiting Col B, or hearing of him ever entering any house come to that.

I think he was too aloof for that sort of task.

Katharine.

Let this run for the time being. Julian will pick this up later. There is no secrecy over e-mail addresses on this site as far as I am aware.

Re: Can we get transcripts?

OK.

I have spoken verbally and briefly to Richard over this matter and have since e-mailed the questioner.

Yes, You can request a court case transcript but you will need a very good LEGAL reason for doing so.

As I see it, without a LEGAL reason for the request, you are very unlikely to succeed .

Re: Can we get transcripts?

To be honest Bob, I don't know.
There will be court transcripts but if they are publicly available, I don't know.
I will make enquiries.

Re: Why a teacher DOES NOT have to report abuse

Would that have been Prep A Freaky ?

I remember Gregory teaching Latin in Prep block. I only remember Eagle in Prep B and Jonah Jones in Prep A. (I was in Prep B).

I don't recall any other housemasters.

Re: REMOVAL OF CHOBA MEMBERSHIP

Irrelevant ? Possibly.

Mud slinging ? Hardly. All fact.

The woman in question was a senior police officer, and what we used to call a bl00dy rotten apple and a total disgrace to her profession.

I could go a lot further but feel it would be counter productive.

Re: REMOVAL OF CHOBA MEMBERSHIP

Ironically, I was tentatively 'approached' a few days ago with regard to possibly joining the masons.

My response along the lines of not wishing to roll one trouser leg up, wear a freshly laundered pinny whilst having a knife held near my throat didn't impress.

I mean - Kinky, or what ??

I could dream up a name for it. Not particularly fancy and I would probably have to censure myself !

Re: REMOVAL OF CHOBA MEMBERSHIP

I didn’t realise Ralph Tait was chairman, he was at CH during the 80s and 90s when many of the offences were committed and I imagine he feels at strongly about what happened as many here. I don't know just how close members of the CHOBA board are expected to be to the senior management of CH itself...

Re: Annoying car man

Sometimes, I just wish I was still allowed to drive. Oh ! Hang on a minute. Too many prats,idiots and near do wells use the roads these days. I'll stick with my bus pass and use my one raised finger salute to those above who think they rule the world and road, when I'm trying to cross the road. Inci...
