Re: Politics

At least you passed! I blame Phallic Mathews and Potty Burr (quite a combination, one a chain smoker and the other...). I managed to fail three times yet got pretty good grades at all the others despite for some reason being pushed on to do O levels at 14. Wasn't 14 normal? I did 4 subjects then, p...

Re: Agenda for meeting on 13th Sept & statements

First, Chris. Welcome to the Forum. I think we all look forward to anything you can contribute on any subject remotely related to CH (even the proposal by Labour to outlaw it). I hope that you have been able to profit by your years there. Immense thanks to Robert, as always, for gathering a phenomen...

Re: Revamping of Christ Church Newgate St

Going back 60 years (and probably 100 years) when almost entire houses used public roads for running exercise. Just how far are councillors' houses from the school? If, as claimed, roads are "dangerous" then that councillor should be forcing the council to make them safe though AFAIR the roads past ...

Re: C.H.O.B.A Web site

I see this morning the new platform web-site is up and running. Haven't had time yet to evaluate it as yet. Didn't realise it was new; I hadn't been in there for many many years but found my password so tried before you even posted. a) no need for a password b) some of the links on the list do not ...

Re: THE DOWNSIDE/AMPLEFORTH REPORT

Thus it was that Christ's wife was demoted to being a whore and her epistle destroyed; men come first and still do in the RC church. Palestine Oh come on David - you can't have imagined you would get away without this assertion being challenged? Whilst I very much like the idea of Mary Magdalene be...

Re: THE DOWNSIDE/AMPLEFORTH REPORT

My opinion is that that with the politicisation of the Church by the Emperor Constantine in the 4th century AD the RC church ceased to be credible as a Christian institution. If you are referring to Nicaea, although Constantine arranged it he was neither Chair (someone from Spain but I would have t...

Re: What is the impact of a CH education?

Mid A 15. Reference the school's need to know the details of your fortune I just happened to write to Rockfreak There are other sites which give a lot of your past history, crimes (if any) and finances, employers etc. I did that on the originator of that survey and found that the man's historical tr...

Re: New Victim comes forward

Have they come forward to the police or to the school? Does it make any difference? The school would have to pass on any information and also press the person to contact the police so I suppose we have to assume the police are closely involved. Let's just leave the subject alone because anything wo...

Re: THE DOWNSIDE/AMPLEFORTH REPORT

I forgot to add that the former Abbot of Buckfast Abbey - also a Benedictine institution - was sent to prison for 15 months in 2007 for abuse of children at the abbey's prep school between 1971 and 1978. I take no pleasure in drawing attention to these events as I am a Catholic myself, but it does ...

Re: IICSA - Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

Here's Freaky's take on proverbs. "Those who send their children away from the home to be brought up by strangers will to some extent always be putting them at risk." . Sure but I have seen the damage done by parents, some highly qualified, in far too many kids. At least and in theory all teachers ...

Re: Politics

Climate change may not be new but I don't believe there's much doubt that the events since the industrial revolution and the advent of mass production and consumption have massively hastened its advance. As far as climbing goes, I grew up after the war with tales of heroism and disaster on the Nort...

Re: Politics

I know the Lake District very well and I think it's some time since there were glaciers at Penrith. I used to go winter climbing in Scotland and even there, in my recent lifetime, the climbing and skiing conditions are not what they were. My first job (in 1961) was to make up-to-date maps of Blaama...

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...
