Re: The Old Blue 2018

Thanks John H. That helps a lot.

I wonder if CH will take any heed of this thread ? I fear probably not.

Re: Sometimes I forget

I can't remember any showers as such in Coleridge B. Just the two baths and the one long trough with tin basins, and that was it. Then there were the two stand up urinals and the one semi shielded sit down bog.

Re: A letter from the CHOBA board

Notwithstanding the above, I do think that justice is the supreme value. As was clearly confirmed by Lord Justice Scrutton in an appeal case. The difficulty is defining "justice". I suspect that rape victims would consider justice to be the castration of their attackers - others may disagree. Stead...

Re: The Old Blue 2018

I'm so glad I started this thread. The above threads echo my original thoughts.

I do however, get annoyed at the constant use of the word 'Diversity'. and the front page of this current edition rather exceeds the use of the headline.

Huddersfield. 20 more guilty.

What is it with these Asians ? (I have to call them Asians otherwise I could upset the PC brigade.) Obviously, their own race of women is far too unattractive for them. Life to mean life for all of them would suit me far better. I was however, pleased to see that Pakistan did hang a child rapist and...

Re: Wikipedia Entry?

Marty's mention of Ampleforth is somewhat interesting given the forthcoming (?) High Court case by someone who wants his job back after being found Not Guilty of 'naughties' with pupils.

Whatever next ??

Re: Sometimes I forget

This morning I was talking with a group of ladies about my age en route to a meeting. Somehow, we got to talking about school uniform, and once again I completely forgot that my experience wasn’t the norm for schools in the 60s. I had said that all uniform was provided including underwear. Somehow ...

Re: Sentencing of Garry William Dobbie

It's a case of wait and see I'm afraid Chas.

Police forces today are and have to be meticulous. I'm told more is going on behind the scenes.

p.s. March 2019 is one month to watch and I'm not talking Brexit.

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

I think we’ll have to agree to disagree about the meaning of the phrase The Other Place, I’ve always understood it to be slightly derogatory, but perhaps that’s biased by being an Oxford graduate where it was derogatory about Cambridge. Anyone familiar with the film Withnail & I will know that the ...
