Re: Roger Martin trial & verdict

Hi All I will be posting my letter to Simon Reid on Monday - I need a bit of time as something has come up from the Martin case. Some of you may not like what I say but it will be polite but also to the point. I ask everyone to please be respectful of others views in these matters. It has been a ver...

Re: Roger Martin trial & verdict

Thank you all It is good to see that perhaps you have decided not to argue so much! I have written a letter to Simon Reid & Chris Steine which I have decided should be put onto the forum site. It is long and directional. For me the question remains - why on earth was it allowed to go on for such a l...

Re: Roger Martin trial & verdict

Thank you Charles

It is and has been quite strenuous for me but I need answers for all. I am starting to get used to it!

I have finally finished a letter to the HM Simon Reid & Treasurer and I have decide to upload this with Julian's help. So you will all see what I am saying.

Cheers & thanks

Rob

Re: Roger Martin trial & verdict

Thank you DazedandConfused I will be posting now as my issue is not with Martin or any of the others, even the person who abused me. My issue is with CH and why it all happened - for now some 35 years according to Martin's evidence but more like 38 years and probably more. I have decided to keep the...

Roger Martin trial & verdict

Hi All I have not been on this site for legal reasons concerning the Burr case. I am able to comment on the Martin Case. I attended the court for the entire trial other than the verdict and sentencing day, last Thursday. I am aware that certain people have posted to this forum assertions that are in...

Re: Bishop Peter Ball and Christ's Hospital

Hi Chaps Eer been out of the loop a bit - Peter Ball originally was a monk of his and his brothers own order, down in Sussex. He became Bishop of Lewis. He was not 'a favourite of the later Bishop of Chichester' although he had been with the previous. He ran a strange institution (with his brother (...

Re: Ernest McCall- Maths teacher / housemaster Maine A

Hi Chaps He was Richard Edward McCall. Ernie was his adopted name, by him. He was Second Housemaster in Mid A during my time (1972 - 1976). A bit odd and he drank a lot, AN AWFUL LOT. There were some issues with him but he was, to be frank, rather useless both as a teacher in my time and within the ...

Re: HUSBAND APPEAL ??

I said it is the best legal system and I will stick by that and whilst Scotland and Northern Ireland has separate legal systems they are close to or replicate that of England, Wales, The Channel Islands and the Isle of Man as well as Gibralter and other 'Protectorates'. It is by no means a perfect s...

Re: HUSBAND APPEAL ??

Golpher

The one (and more) family members of Husband may well attend - be assured that the victim(s) will be represented and those that do this will be much more than a match for his family.

Hope that this helps.

Re: HUSBAND APPEAL ??

JR has provided a very comprehensive response to how the Appeal System works. Whilst it may seem a waste of public money to allow Husband's appeal we must all remember that GB has by far the best judicial system in the world and all accused, found guilty and sentenced, do have a right of appeal - ev...

Hi All Thank you for your support. It was a difficult day for me - the address was 35 minutes long and I have no idea how I got through it - I only broke down three times and just for a moment or two.

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

No Golfer I would never want the closure of CH. What I want is an apology - and that is it. I did what I did on that occasion as I believed then it was right and I stand by it. Every person deserves more than one chance - if I was wrong then I must take ownership of the wrong doing. It is time for C...

Re: Corporal Punishment by CH Teaching staff

Golfer Corporal punishment was simply the Chastisement of the time, this according to what Guy Perricone wrote to me. It was nothing of the sort. For many it was direct physical abuse for gratification, being sexual or sadistic, and became very influential in the recipients 'worldview' for that indi...

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

Sorry for not responding to all of this sooner (almost wish that I hadn't asked the question). My Address to the Council is on the 2nd November so have been concentrating on that, but... whether people like it or not, the abuse continued under Baker and Hansford. I am concerned about the punishment ...

Re: Corporal Punishment by CH Teaching staff

Corporal punishment was a part of the '50s, 60s, and 70s. It was a norm and as Guy Perricone has explained to me was at that time an acceptable form of chastisement. However, I was at CH under Seaman and Newsome and the corporal punishment delivered had very little to do with 'chastisement'. Whilst ...
