Re: Freemasons and questions to answer

White men? Old white men? Come on, don't stint on the cliches.
Old white men are to blame for 90% of what’s wrong with society, it’s a cliche for a reason.

Re: Freemasons and questions to answer

Unless there is knowledge that Karim is a freemason this seems a fruitless thread of discussion. My original point is: 1) Pressure was applied, secrecy seemingly more important than justice or child welfare. 2) The individual concerned is well known as a Freemason. 3) Masonic links were a factor in...

And as an afterthought, the police, (and especially The Met) PLUS the Judiciary are rampanty controlled by 'The Square' as far as promotion or advancement is concerned.
Yep, that’s not concerning at all around the topic of criminal accountability and shielding people from consequences.

Freemasons and questions to answer

Anyone who was at CH in the 80s and 90s (and I'm betting both before and after) knew that the school had Freemason links. During my time there were staff who would openly discuss being a Mason, and it was an open secret that one of the senior staff was a extremely highly ranked member. Two things ha...

Re: House structure

A cheap shot at Mason too- or were the lyrics referring to masons plural? I’m pretty certain that was Freemasons as opposed to Mr Mason. Though the subject of Freemasons, and in particular the relationship between a society, renowned for both secrecy and being above the law, and recent events is a ...

Re: What was the attraction?

I remember Shippen talking about the fact that the school matched the state pay rises (during the 70s when the unions had some clout) as well as paying above average. Added in to that was the accommodation and meals, anyone who was coming from the Oxbridge university environment would have just seen...

Because of this the agency are looking for someone in full time work, earning over £40,000 and a home owner. Since my parents divorce...

Well our justice system is about rehabilitation, and about protection of society. As it seems Huntly is utterly beyond redeption it seems he will be serving "life that means life". The question is that for a doctor or court to agree that he should have the right to end his life they would first have...

Is that a quote, or have we wandered into the abstract?

"What do you think of him?

Pause

"I, erm, don't like men with too many muscles"

"I didn't make him for you!"
