Cairncross is pretty active on Twitter. Maybe you could try asking her for comment on there?

Do you really mean twitter, Marty?

It was on the Radio 4 4pm news just after Ampleforth and Downside were mentioned,
Both the above schools got plenty of air time on various BBC news programmes last night.

I didn't find any television news references to Karim, however.

Re: A WAY AHEAD?

Listened to the Vanessa Feltz report, from BBC London, Wed 11 July 2018. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06b5d8c 00:08:15 - interview with Arthur, one of the abuse victims. "Tried to contact the police and the school, but no one had taken him seriously" "Complaints came from 22 former students" 1...

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

This is the Daily Mail report. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6043865/Sports-coach-63-sexually-abused-six-private-school-girls-jailed-10-years.html Those comments from the tennis club who later employed him are utterly shameful. I quite agree, but then, some 'Posh Peoples' clubs and organi...

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

It would seem that more of the national papers have picked up Karim's sentencing than they did Husband's.

Hearing finished at 2.51 so the fat lady has sung.
Isn't that contempt of Court ?

.......... and probably quite a short distance back from the video room to his Flowery Dell.

Can we return him to his country of origin after completion of sentence ?

It looks from Xhibit as though four victims have read their Victim Impact Statements.

Big prize coming up for Karim.

Re: Letter to the Head Master

I can't seem to see the 1960 photo (or ANY of Lieberman's) but if it's a very small cup it is probably the Meek Pancake Cup given by Miss Meek, Mrs Ritches' prdecessor as Coleridge matron, for the Col A vs Col B Shrove Tuesday pancake race. I think you are right, PWB. I seem to remember that tiny c...

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

I'm assuming that Court 4 will be almost identical to Court 2 in size, then. I can clearly remember the Clerk telling myself and Richard, pre Husbands hearing, that the Judge was allowing the Jury seats to be used by members of the press and others. Assuming Karim is being sentenced by the same Judg...

Re: A comment from a Sexual Abuse Victim from CH

Reflecting on Chris's post, I recall in about 1969/70 the headteacher having a wild panic and hauling all sorts of pupils in. Was this part of a plan to get or suppress some information? It also makes you wonder again about the 'suicide/accident' we had in the school about 68-69 time. I don't think...

They tell us that it costs £1,000 for every prisoner they take to court so they do videolinks instead. They say it is cheaper.

If Karim goes to court he may lose his cell.
... and we definitely wouldn't want that, would we ?? :o

Re: Letter to the Head Master

Sorry to go Back to Buck again. It was my information to JR that caused him to close the AH Buck site way back when. A quick pedantic note. I don't think Buck left on a Sunday. I remember going up to Big Side with a friend, the two of us laden with bats and pads for a house cricket match (a non-Sun...
