Re: Article about the Tube

However, don't waste your time looking for the CH article on line! Better late than never - it can be found (PDF) here: https://newsletter.christs-hospital.org.uk/t/y-l-ukirfl-jutldihkuj-n/ I don't remember the tiles (at least not bright white) - I do recall the asbestos insulation round the pipes ...

Re: Duncan Noel-Paton [FOUND]

Funky Dunky? I was third cavalryman on the left in what I believe was DNP's first CH production, 'Indians'. A cavalryman? I was an 'Indian' and died in the frozen wastes as I recall. It was doubtless a shock to the CH system to have a cast so large and on a relatively controversial subject. Sent fr...

Re: HUSBAND APPEAL ??

It’s great news that the judgement that was made was sound and that the victim isn’t going to be put through the ordeal of an appeal. Why should the appeal be an ordeal for the victim? He was seeking leave to appeal against sentence, not conviction. That is a purely technical hearing. You are shock...

Re: University Challenge.

I take it that that was when 'Blowna Gasket' was question master and before 'Paxo Stuffingman' took over ? I loved that one-off TV comedy drama based on Uni Challenge some time ago Can't remember it's title or cast members but I wish they'd show it again. There's a film called 'Starter for 10"...

Re: All this is incredibly sad

Graham, I am not trying to be difficult, but how does anyone know that "over 60 percent of sexual assault cases are never reported?" If they are not reported how does anyone know that they have taken place? Also, 60 percent of how many - 100, 1,000, 10,000? This is a very emotive area - a...

We didn't even have that in my time (67-75 - so not that long after you!) I doubt it's been reintroduced!

Re: Why a teacher DOES NOT have to report abuse

..... 1) Current statutory regulations make it a requirement of all teachers to snitch on each other if a child's safety is at stake, on pain of dismissal. Seems to me that this environment makes abuse unlikely - especially when combined with senior management using the eyes and ears of the pupils ...

Re: Why a teacher DOES NOT have to report abuse

I'm not emotional and I'm certainly not ashamed to continue to say that this thread is nonsense. It's not helpful to start criticizing the OP in such terms when he has (legally proven) reason to raise these points. He does err slightly in his argument that statute overrides contract. It's correct t...

Re: Data Protection Act

I have already mentioned that I couldn't be checked out to work with children because I have an adoption certificate and not (legally) a birth certificate which is what the local regulations require! That's odd. An adoption certificate is one of the documents listed as a "group 1 primary ident...

Me neither. I put it down to having a long-held dislike of having to wear funny clothes. (Wonder where I got that from?)

Re: On a happier note: The Good Teachers!
