Re: Politics

I think it's time for a civil war !! You base, hollow, unthinking, utter, utter cretin. I’ve seen a civil war in the Balkans. You really want one here? Slightly tongue in cheek one liner Ed. However, I do take great exception to your use of words to describe me. I did consider using my position as ...

Re: Politics

John, this country's tradition is parliamentary democracy, not referendums. I believe that in Switzerland, where there are more referendums, civil servants and constitutional lawyers get together and devise the final wording of the referendum ballot paper so that the citizens are more au fait with ...

Re: Politics

To be quite honest David, I'm sick of the whole Govenment/Opposition shenanigans. Boris does what he thinks is right. Comrade Corbyn won't or is frighten of an election. The other opposition parties. especially the porridge noshers don't care what they want apart from protecting their well paid jobs...

Andrew Fawcett R.I.P.

I was saddened to read today on the latest C.H.O.B.A. newsleter of the passing of Andrew Fawcett ColB 54-61. He was two years my senior, a house monitor. I thinks it's fair to say we weren't mates' obviously because of the age difference. However, a few years ago, at a Coleridge B re-union event, we...

C.H.O.B.A Web site

Re: THE DOWNSIDE/AMPLEFORTH REPORT

"I believe the monks at Buckfast Abbey make their own tonic wine..." Indeed, they do - and it is very potent. It is the drink of choice in many bars in central Scotland, particularly Glasgow. Buckfast Abbey is just down the road from me and the monks are so proficient at money-making schemes that t...

If the Times publishes, it may lead to a host of further complaints.

My thoughts exactly, Richard.

Thanks Rob.

I can't say that I'm surprised. In fact I was expecting it.

Re: Politics

Wonderful typo in yesterday's Observer, in Will Hutton's article on Brexit: "The constitution does empower the monarch to assert fair play and the pubic interest..." Who knew the old girl had this job along with all the others? I'd rather imagined this would be Boris's province. Theory is one thing...
