Bishop Peter Ball

The press are really catching up fast, even involving H.R.H. Prince Charles.

One example:- https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-48214957

If you Google the Bishops name, there are many many more recent references in the press.

Re: Bishop Peter Ball and Christ's Hospital

I was also confirmed by him in about '88.

Re: Dobbie's departure

It is a moot point to what extent the church should be responsible for his/her conduct. It is hardly reasonable to expect the bishop's enforcers to make constant active enquiry. It's a moot point not for this reason but because the church has consistently defended and covered up child ...
