Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

Got to feel sorry for Joe in that he is not really getting much of a look in this World Cup. I don't think any other country has the depth at second row that England does. Meanwhile let's hope England finish the job against Australia in the second half. I do feel he is the unluckiest player in Brit...

However I want to clarify something: The police have been able to charge 6 teachers over the period from 1969 to 2001. However, information provided suggests that activities of li...

Re: Bursaries Shmursaries

I've just received a letter from the proverbial Simon asking me for a contribution for a bursary to CH. He clearly doesn't keep up to date with these sites because otherwise he'd have discovered that I've been banned from the official CHOBA site by an uptight, haughty, professional PR woman who is ...

Re: The moon landing at CH

I know where I was... on a CH cricket tour in Holland. We played against an adult side whose members as part of their scientific work had stayed up all night. Consequently the CH side ran out as winners. Think I might have nabbed 4 of the easiest wickets of my career!

Re: Roger Martin - trial

Maybe I am on my own here but I don't like the tag team baiting Vilified has been subject to at all. He has answered some rigorous questions fully and expressed contrition. It should stop there. People rightly want transparency regarding the awful abuse that has blighted CH and to know why it was a...

Physical abuse can be heinous or valid depending on context.

Is that the short summary?
Hello....the search for clarity is commendable, but so is a realisation of the time to withdraw.
