Re: Webb guilty. Again.

Just to try to explain this. Webb was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment in 2015 for offences against one victim. I believe that he pleaded guilty. He was sentenced in 2017 for offences against four victims. He pleaded guilty and his sentence was eventually five and a half years. He has been senten...

Peter John Herbert Webb was convicted today of three further offences and sentenced to a further 12 months imprisonment.

Re: Another Fitting Sentence !!

And another one. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-53681417 Interesting to see that Hove Crown Court is open, as there is some doubt as to whether Webb's case will proceed on schedule at Lewes. Most courts are open but not for trials. The difficulty with trials is the need for social dis...

Re: Elizabeth Cairncross

Sadly there is still no criminal offence which enables a teacher turning a blind eye to sexual abuse or covering up for it to be prosecuted. There is no appetite in government to introduce such an offence given what are seen as other priorities. If one parent abuses their child and the other parent...

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

I suppose that in any industry a freemasonry develops in which people are unwilling to rat on a colleague with whom they may have become friends. The problems of trying to prove what they think they've seen or heard. Oi! headmaster! I believe that Mr Jones is spending suspiciously long hanging arou...

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

I know of only one case where somebody actually had a backbone and it wasn't a teacher. R F Salisbury, the Clerk of Christ's Hospital, was so outraged when he heard a teacher had been moved on, that he went over the heads of the Headmaster and Council of Almoners and reported that person to the Dep...

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

They shouldn't be allowed to call it "historical abuse" until they have PROVED it isn't still going on. The default assumption should be that it still is. No one currently or previously employed there has been able to give any substantial, concrete description of how safeguarding procedures have im...

Re: Leave Days in Horsham

Different shopping regime in those days and the day really dragged from 5 pm when the shops closed. By then you have long since visited any shops you actually wanted to go to.

Re: R Rae

Companies House has a Robert Rae recorded as director for a 10 year period of a block of flats in Horsham.

The date of birth would make him 93 which sounds right.

There is no record of a Will in the last 5 years so it sounds as though he is still with us.

Re: Elizabeth Cairncross

In the 1970s many of the meals incorporated " kesp" which was a textured vegetable protein used as a substitute for meat. What felt at times like the virtual disappearance of meat leaves me wondering whether the school was some sort of guinea pig fro kesp in the way that Dr Trevor Hoskins used the p...
