Re: HUSBAND APPEAL ??

Do we know if the family member who tried to get the complainant to drop the case is going to be prosecuted for witness intimidation and obstruction of justice? Very serious offences. It would surely depend on the extent of the "intimidation". Probably raising the issue on an internet forum is not ...

I will be concentrating on both MANDATE NOW which is the campaign to get the Government to change the law to make it a Statutory requirement that teachers must report sexual abuse to the police; Well done Robert. It is important that you had your say. The status quo us that teachers must report sex...

Re: Huddersfield. 20 more guilty.

If we go back far enough - Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Vikings, Normans, Huguenots - we all have foreign blood - unless we are Celts - in which case we probably live in Cornwall or Wales.

Re: Carol Service 6 Dec tickets

Sorry Pauline. I'm in no way belittling your legitimate request. I used to get hundreds of these. And of course everyone wants to attend such a special service. It is just magical.

Re: Carol Service 6 Dec tickets

Oh this is hilarious. My most pressured ever job at CH was master i/c chapel seating - the climax of which was organising the Carol Service. Nowadays it will be a piece of cake by comparison as safeguarding and fire regulations will mean that tickets can only be issued for the seats available. In my...

Re: Hammer blows to CH finances

Surely VAT is a progressive tax since rich people spend more money on VATable goods and therefore pay more VAT? No. Miles off target. Thatcher vastly increased VAT from 8% to 15% because she knew it would NOT be "progressive". If you save money - increasing your [family's] wealth and the country's ...

Re: What Steve Hilton is doing these days

Possibly the brightest student I have come across in my teaching career. I never taught him (Vikki had that pleasure) but I remember regular discussions of revision topics with him in the History Library and he was way ahead of any imaginable curve.

Dick, Thanks for your argument above and for your list which I found helpful.
Any example of schools?

I'd be interested in knowing those organisations who have issued such a formal institutional apology.

Re: Huddersfield. 20 more guilty.

What is it with these Asians ? (I have to call them Asians otherwise I could upset the PC brigade.) Obviously, their own race of women is far too unattractive for them. Life to mean life for all of them would suit me far better. I was however, pleased to see that Pakistan did hang a child rapist an...

I would never want the closure of CH.
What I want is an apology - and that is it.
It doesn't work like that.
I have got a strong feeling that your apology might be the route to compensation for [many] others.

Re: Resignation of Baker and emergency appointment of Hansford

What about Southern who took over from Poulton? The abuse continued under his regime and it was covered up? Robert. I totally understand your concern and your pain. But I suspect that only the closure of CH would satisfy your desire to keep children safe in education, KCSIE. Many caring parents wou...

Hardly links. More like random events.

How many schools have had 2 previous CH members of staff teach there?

The list would be endless.

Were there other links between CH and Aiglon or was it just those two members of staff who moved there?
Is this a serious question? Links between CH - for paupers - and Aiglon - for the royal family?
