Re: Curious

After Webb was kicked out, did any of the staff keep in touch with him? As I remember it, all-round good bloke Chris Bomber-Nicholson was a close friend of his during his time at the school, so it'd be fascinating to know whether they remained friends after Webb's disgrace. In fact, it'd be fascinat...

Why Do OBs Not Field a Team in the Arthurian League?

Being sort of backward, I'd never heard of the Arthurian League until today, though I have no doubt at all that the deeply sad sport-crazed nerds amongst us will already be well aware of the said football league. According to Wikipedia, it's an English association football league for teams consistin...

Aah, happy days. A balmy summer's day in 1968 and not a paedophile in sight...... so far as we know.

Re: James Andrew Husband, Pickering Town Council

Ten out of ten for sheer front though, Andrew Husband. The guy was still blogging re. Pickering and being a thoroughly good sort to all appearances well into this year on behalf of the town. Heck, the guy even delivered a lecture on the history of Pickering War Memorial Hall back in January; pretty ...

Re: Husband & Dobbie - VERDICTS

I bet they postpone it when the day comes and you end up sitting in a seedy hotel room for another ten days in the sweltering heat, beating the flies off with a rolled-up newspaper while the wallpaper unpeels itself. I get the impression that it's that kind of court.

Flagged up as having been a school Chaplain at last, then.

Re: The trial of James Andrew Husband and Gary Dobbie

Shame. And there we all were, on our very best behaviour and choosing our words so very, very carefully. I smells a rat. Maybe l'école was worried that some of the content would be quoted by the press after the trial ended, adding well-deserved insult to injury. Or perhaps they were contacted by the...

Just look at the Cliff Richard vs. the BBC case. Still on-going, but when did we last hear anything about it in the news?

Re: The trial of James Andrew Husband and Gary Dobbie

Thanks, Richard.

It's astonishing that the journalist didn't even bother Googling the name Gary Dobbie for background information, though. Almost beyond belief, in fact.

Re: The trial of James Andrew Husband and Gary Dobbie

Isn't it interesting that the Brighton Argus doesn't allude to Gary Dobbie's being a clergyman? It suggests a deliberate decision not to. He's merely referred to as having been 'head of house' and having been a teacher who also taught at Shrewsbury School. Even when the complainant in question refer...

There's a very strong case for moderating abysmal limericks. Not to mention moderating men in baseball caps.

Re: Ajaz Karim found guilty

I must admit that I don't for one moment comprehend why anyone'd think it made sense to try the remaining two defendants together. One of them is accused by just one complainant, the other by multiple complainants. One of them is accused of offences against a solitary female, the other of multiple o...
