Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

On another note there are two very good articles in Saturday's edition of The Guardian. One is on the sterility of the modern game (I have been saying that for years!) and the other is on the tetchy subject of qualification to play for a particular country, Both articles are well worth a read.

Re: Politics

Thank you, John, for you have made my point even clearer. He is a buffoon if he thinks that anyone with an iota of intelligence will take him seriously. Potentially dangerous to shapeless orts ? Maybe.

Masterful.
I remember the marvellous Wickes/Joly/Mason production in Big School c.71 with great affection.

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

I was there, Andy. Joe's first start in an interntaional match since New Zealand in June 2014 was a strong reminder of the length of time needed for full rehabilitation from injury in the modern game.

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

Neither Jack Bailey not Dennis Silk ever captained the England Cricket team. I believe that Dennis captained the MCC on at least one overseas tour.... note, not England.

Re: Residential assessment?

A very simple answer to the question about the majority at Yr 9 entry being either full-fee payers or from overseas is that this is not the case.

Re: Residential assessment?

I am genuinely disappointed to learn of your news. As I have said previously there is no more scrupulously fair process in the land.
