Re: 'Shame on You' by Clara Salaman

It really was so long ago that the name of the place doesn't ring a bell but if you show me a photo I might remember :-)

Re: 'Shame on You' by Clara Salaman

On the basis that if the same name occurs to more than one of us it probably was that person I also plump for Mrs David And Will Rasmussen (sigh, drool, etc) doesn't look half as good now as he does in my memories, but then policemen look like babies as well so I guess we're all getting older :-( An...

I'm not sure I am 'still here banging the same drum'. I occasionally get an automatic mail because of a response on a post and come in to take a look. I generally respond to posts where I feel I have up-to-date information that supports a point of view. The part of the picture that is missing from t...

I had to take some time to think about this one because I felt I understood why concerned mum posted the Enid Blyton story but I couldn't explain it. Bonsai has helped clarify my thoughts as to how I feel. I can accept that the schools have changed, I've seen it with my own eyes. I can accept that t...

Pincham-bothering. I like that, it's amusing to think that after so many years of not being bothered about us, he might have been bothered by us. (I didn't know anything about the demo or the video mentioned on this website until posts appeared on this website. The 'us' in the above sentence just a...

Of course I am - I've posted a lot on this forum so it's very obvious from my writing style that my assertion was not overly serious - but what came to mind when I read Chittani's reaction to the video was the way the Lambie twisted that famous letter to claim that people on this forum were physical...

I think this is what Chittani is referring to... Here's the quote from David Boddy on the channel 4 interview: http://www.channel4.com/news/articles/world/school%20abuse%20inquiry/162790 "There's a wonderful analogy often used in terms in the development of the human soul. Two hands of the pott...

I hope the resemblance is superficial - the fat controller is actually a decent chap who looks after his little tank engines, unlike Pincham who abrogated his responsibilities to us so comprehensively!

I'd find it easier if the changes manifested themselves in a practical way but I can't see any difference. It is still the case that people are expected to put their hand in their pocket and subsidise the SES without thought to whether they can afford it. My dad has had to buy specialist equipment t...

it's spot on - reminded me so much of when I was in my teens - a friend and I decided to see what all the fuss was about scientologists.

I made the kids watch this, completely bemused them but led to some interesting conversations :-O

It's a bit like a casino's defence that the customer chooses to bankrupt their family by putting every penny in the slot machine...

...but casinos are obliged to take measures to identify and prevent their 'customers' from getting to that point.

Hmmm... Were either Merry or Chittani members in the 70s??? I'm not sure either of them are old enough... Take it as a positive stroke guys, I'm not calling you babies, but you're not exactly geriatric are you????? I'm talking recent events, within the last 3 years. Younger members are more able to ...

the only one I'm aware of is FAIR http://www.fair-cult-concern.co.uk/ but their website isn't currently working my response to the same request was, eventually, to provide links to sites about SES, including their own statement about still funding the schools. apparently this friend is that there ar...

I don't agree. Try taking it out of context. Over the last few years there have been lots of instances reported in the press about predominantly Muslim issues over dress codes - in schools, offices, hairdressing establishments...! Legally, and according to the Muslim council, there is no imperative ...
