Re: Letter to the Head Master

Your consistent bias against the current CH administration borders on the snide, but pleases some. Reid has become the focus of a baying pack on here. They could consider the complexity of his job and that he has more important work than futilely attempting to satisfy a very small number disaffecte...

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

I would like to comment further, but being a moderator and not a politically correct, person. I'll keep my powder dry for now.

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

As far as Dobbie is concerned, general feeling is he could face more charges depending on-going investigations.

Re: It's time for Sillett, Cairncross and Poulton to comment.

Cairncross is pretty active on Twitter. Maybe you could try asking her for comment on there? I don't call it Twitter Do you really mean twitter, Marty? (It's all in the name. Transpose the W for an A. That'll do it !) Taitter? Or do you mean transpose the I? I don't call it Twitter and the censor b...

Re: LinkedIn profiles

LinkedIn is useless for me as a way of attracting work. My clients prefer to keep their heads down. John Smith drug dealer is not clever. Yes, I can see why it wouldn't work for you, and I guess reputation amongst instructing solicitors is much more important. I don't like LinkedIn but it does work...

Re: It's time for Sillett, Cairncross and Poulton to comment.

I really think the above example staff members will HAVE to comment after completion of all the cases.

Failure to do so in my book is admission of culpability.

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...

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.

.......... 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 ?
