Re: Why Do OBs Not Field a Team in the Arthurian League?

Going back in time CH winter sport was rugby so it would be logical for there to be a CH OB team or three. Certainly they had a pitch but whenever I used to go there it was always locked up, dead. I went elsewhere

Re: A party favourite

I agree with you. It’s hard to imagine so many people would willingly put themselves through the ordeal of reporting to the police, lengthy interviews, the risk of not being believed or the CPS not prosecuting, then the trial itself, all motivated by money or revenge. Believe you me, the CPS will n...

Re: Lighter note:

A couple of years after my time, as the hair shows.. We would NEVER be allowed that length. How times can change so quickly. but JR and I did have such cravats as part of the uniform. I almost wish they were still fashionable - far better that some of those multicoloured multidesigned bow ties one ...

Re: I am returning my Bible...

Replying primarily to Mid A 15's last entry I see conflicting elements in this whole affair. Total and absolute condemnation of those found guilty but also of every one of the staff who, having seen or heard complaints failed to act decisively and effectively. Such condemnation includes every such o...

Re: Who Knew What?

A red flag doesn’t mean that wrongdoing is taking place, it means that the likely conditions for it are there. Of course not every teacher who has that relationship with pupils is going to be an abuser, but it’s likely an abuser would have that relationship with pupils. True but if a red flag (of a...

Re: Should the forum be behind a registration wall?

Just recently on another thread someone posted claiming that this sort of abuse goes on just as much at day schools. It does happen - just read the newspapers People are trying to say that Christ's Hospital is a refuge for youngsters who come from less than adequate homes . Well what constitutes an...

Re: Who Knew What?

I remember he had his favourites, kids he'd give nicknames to and be all jokey with. Seemed mostly indifferent to others. At the time it didn't register with me, but looking at my memories through the eyes of an adult it's a red flag. The sort of thing that nowadays people pick up on quickly and pa...

Re: James Andrew Husband, Pickering Town Council

I'm guessing it means they're trying to find a legal way of putting as much distance between themselves and him, something which most likely includes making sure he gets as little money from them for his tenure as legally possible and scrubbing as much of it from legal/written memory as they can. N...

Re: James Andrew Husband, Pickering Town Council

Hmm.Possibly on stuff like pension rights you might have a point - but the statement is absurd - they ca and should a) express horror at the convictions and extend their sympathy to the victims b) make clear that he is no longer the Town Clerk, as he is a convicted rapist at the start of a long pri...

Re: Brexit electoral commision report

My understanding is that this report was issued without any reference to those who organised the Brexit demand nor consulting them about the accuracy of any statements made. To me it smacks of those National Socialists sympathisers who wish to make that German woman Fuhrer.

Re: The trial of Husband and Dobbie

When they learned on Wednesday afternoon the jury would be finishing deliberations for the day, Husband was overheard joking to Dobbie: "It just means another gin and tonic Dobbie, think of it that way." Which just about sums up the cavalier attitude of someone who thought he was on a winner and go...

Re: Politics

As for that latter. my son, working for his A levels in two types of maths was subjected to two weeks of Labour indoctrination by his maths teacher instead of maths teaching. He swore never ever to vote Labour because they tried to damage his schooling. I'm afraid very much par for the course in th...

Re: Politics

No evidence required. Even given the fact that some political leanings change with age, the demographics of the vote suggest that as the leave generation slowly expires, it is replaced by the remain generation. Mathematically, we've already passed this point apparently, but all contributions gratef...
