Re: Corporal Punishment by CH Teaching staff

New one to me.

I do remember being told in my first week in Prep B that all squirts would have to have two teeth taken out by the school dentist.

Re: The Old Blue 2018

FGM is not (generally) a Muslim practice. It is more widely performed in Christian Ethiopia and in traditional and/or Christian parts of West Africa. ....and should be severely punished. Hopefully I might find out what a "Policeman" is soon. People where talking about them in my local this afternoo...

Re: The Old Blue 2018

Here in this part of Wales we see a lot of flags, the Red Dragon, of course and in recent years that has been joined by St David’s Cross, yellow upright cross in black, and also Owain Glyndwr’s banner see https://l7.alamy.com/zooms/6efa74a090dc40679abbff457d52fa80/flying-the-owain-glyndr-banner-out...

Wendy Fryer

Before filing away the latest copy of 'Old Blue', I double checked the Obits and noticed Wendy Fryer, Infirmary nurse 52-53.

I'm assuming this must have been the wife of my Housemaster, NTF.

Can anyone confirm or deny this ?

Re: The Old Blue 2018

Thanks Guys for the flag-pole-flag update.
Just shows one can't keep fully up to date with all legislation changes.

Re: The Old Blue 2018

On the 'flags' issue, as I recall, anyone has the right to fly the Cross of St. George, but MUST have local authority permission to fly the Union Standard, (Union Jack).

Identification.

Just thought I'd add MY point of view at the age of nearly 72. I don't have a pass-port. I have no need for or want one. I have no wish to leave the UK. I was forced to relinquish my FULL UK driving licence after suffering a stroke and reaching 70 years of age. I have been heavily involved with anim...

Re: Politics

The mere thought of another vote or referendum and the possibility of the UK having to continue being ruled by European despots, alcoholics and wannabe's sickens me to the core. I have no problem with some sort of trade deal on tariffs as long as it isn't all in their favour. I don't want their cour...

Incredible justice system in Switzerland. I think Richard McDonald was imprisoned for a year yet never charged with anything.

Re: Politics

Brexit will happen or there will be either a revolution or a civil war.

Another referendum ? Best of three ? Best of five ? Let Comrade Corbynski take over ?

I'd sooner let the Saudi's take over.

They don't muck about !!!!!
