Re: Elizabeth Cairncross

I can assure from bitter experience that bullying and prejudice were alive and well in the 80s and early 90s.

Re: Another one charged Peter Webb, aged 77.

Richard is right - and I’ve had advice, via CH, from the police that we should all avoid discussion on here until after any trial and verdict.

Re: IP number blacklisted

There’s nothing specific which should block a VPN IP address, unless it’s been used maliciously or inadvertently to try to gain access. I use a VPN myself almost all the time, and have never seen an issue...... It may be that some of the government sites are blocking chat rooms and forum access them...

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

Watched the second part tonight - harrowing. The use of the phrase “non-recent” abuse or “historical abuse” by CH has always grated with me - somehow made it maybe feel like ages ago, and maybe somehow less significant.....but have never been able to articulate quite why. The documentary explained h...

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

A very good, if somewhat disturbing Part 11. It just shows how much influence the Church has in covering up it's abuse of juniors. I'm surprised there hasn't been more comment on here, given Bishop Ball's connections with CH during his tenure as Bishop of Chichester. I too am surprised so little co...

Re: An Appeal

I fully support Rob in encouraging those with any information to come forward. Everything I’ve heard has helped me believe that the police team will be caring, supportive and empathetic. Sussex police can be reached on 01273 470101. Given the nature of what could be raised, PLEASE don’t publish anyt...

Re: Did anyone know?

Agree that all of that seems sensible measured approach now. Back in the day though, the accepted standards were very different - and I seem to recall parents literally signed over parental responsibility to the school, pretty much unconditionally. So more freedom (for good and ill) for the staff......

Re: Did anyone know?

I think the alcohol issue could be complex. Teachers were/are in-loco-parentis, and it’s perfectly acceptable for a parent to give alcohol to their child in the right way, in order to teach sensible alcohol consumption etc. Combine that with the Grecian’s Club where you could drink when you turned 1...

And, at what point does “hearing voices” move from being a psychological disorder to be hearing Jesus talking to you in response to prayer ?

Re: IICSA - Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

“Those who do not understand history are doomed to repeat it....” (or something like that) - so I really hope both CH and the IICSA have a strong desire to fully understand how the environment at CH lent itself so clearly to these abuses happening, being allowed to continue, and to being so widespre...
