Re: CH Closed. COVID19

Could it be more about CH being an ideal location for a temporary hospital?

Re: Here's a hypothetical

I hope McCall is found before he gasps his pathetic last. I think he might be the most prolific of the lot, typically the worst evade their comeuppance. What can we do?

Re: Michael Porteous

Isn't there another ex staff member (ERM) in exile in Thailiand? It seems you can join the web of grubs together quite easily

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

Hmmm, I can't help thinking that we'd be saying the same about Kruis or Lawes if either of them was the OB (I'm assuming we all agree that Itoji is a shoo-in). Joe is just unfortunate that we have great strength in depth in the 2nd row. As for ... the 3rd place playoff! shame on you, Elvie! Blasphe...

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

He'll probably get the full 80 mins of the 3rd place playoff!

Agree with comments, a great player, deserved a lions place. If anything he's probably too nice a bloke for Eddie

Re: Tom Lawson: the interview

did you pour 2 separate glasses or one after the other in the same glass?

I have a mental image that your delight inspired you to fill 2 glasses and sit back to savour the moment

Re: What is the impact of a CH education?

The survey seemed to be a crass mechanism to identify where to focus their fundraising efforts; “What is your income and are you likely to part with it?”

Re: Roger Martin - trial

He wasn't convicted of filming boys. That was relevant to show that Martin had an inappropriate interest in boys. He was convicted of putting the pupil in his [Martin's] own bed and then touching his penis. The boy was 10 and very homesick. That was demonstrably inappropriate, even in 1976. I reali...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

One needs to be very careful about impugning the verdict in Martin's trial. He was unanimously convicted by the jury. All I've garnered is that he encouraged skinny-dipping, that there was bum-sliding in the lav ends, and that he naively thought it OK to film naked boys cavorting around. I liked th...

This long list of creeps who have so abused their positions will surely continue to grow. I hope every adult who experienced abuse at CH as a child will find the strength to come forward, and I offer my sympathies and thanks to those who have already done so.

Does anyone know what/who is next?
