Re: Does Being Bullied at School Help to Prepare You for Life?

No doubt the pot will be stirred and perhaps that was the intent, but let’s hope it doesn’t turn ugly! In my experience some of my contemporaries were subject to horrific bullying. I was often amazed by their resilience to keep going. In later life some have become successful, some have forgiven, an...

Re: The wacky world of catheters

I had one of those a few years ago when my back stuffed up. I told the doctor who had the pleasure of doing the plumbing work that he had just come to take the piss out of me. I don’t think he’d ever heard that one before!

Re: The End of Marching in to Lunch?

Might as well get rid of the uniform at the same time. They could turn big school into a JD sports so that pupils can get easy access to the right tracksuits for the conditions. Thinking it through a bit further, is there any need to actually go to the dining hall? an Uber Eats style arrangement cou...

Could it be more about CH being an ideal location for a temporary hospital?

Re: Here's a hypothetical

I hope McCall is found before he gasps his pathetic last. I think he might be the most prolific of the lot, typically the worst evade their comeuppance. What can we do?

Isn't there another ex staff member (ERM) in exile in Thailiand? It seems you can join the web of grubs together quite easily

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

Hmmm, I can't help thinking that we'd be saying the same about Kruis or Lawes if either of them was the OB (I'm assuming we all agree that Itoji is a shoo-in). Joe is just unfortunate that we have great strength in depth in the 2nd row. As for ... the 3rd place playoff! shame on you, Elvie! Blasphe...

Re: Congratulations To Joe Launchbury

He'll probably get the full 80 mins of the 3rd place playoff!

Agree with comments, a great player, deserved a lions place. If anything he's probably too nice a bloke for Eddie

did you pour 2 separate glasses or one after the other in the same glass?

I have a mental image that your delight inspired you to fill 2 glasses and sit back to savour the moment

Re: What is the impact of a CH education?

The survey seemed to be a crass mechanism to identify where to focus their fundraising efforts; “What is your income and are you likely to part with it?”

Re: Roger Martin - trial

He wasn't convicted of filming boys. That was relevant to show that Martin had an inappropriate interest in boys. He was convicted of putting the pupil in his [Martin's] own bed and then touching his penis. The boy was 10 and very homesick. That was demonstrably inappropriate, even in 1976. I reali...
