Bishop Peter Ball

Post by J.R. »

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.
John Rutley. Prep B & Coleridge B. 1958-1963.

A statement from the school might be a good idea.

Well, the dead can't be libelled or prosecuted, so some word about this man from the School is perhaps due. And I don't expect an oration.

I think you mean that the school will remain conveniently silent.

Well, either he’s discovered God in the afterlife, in which case he’s hopefully getting a proper kicking, or he’s discovered there’s no God, in which case he spent his life on a hiding to nothing.
