Re: More TM and GM

I don't think too many people would disagree that the state of mind affects the physical health of the body - particularly with chronic conditions and long standing job stress for instance. In my experience the physical health of the body has quite a strong influence on the state of mind as well. T...

I'd never associated my 'spacing out' with having to meditatei can remember trying to explain it to some of my friends - I would have been about 19 at the time - and them concluding it was deja vu, I could never get them to understand that this was more of a total separation between mind and body. L...

Ben We've been over this one, no one here will admit to having personally seen the alleged leaflet, no one here actually saw the graffiti. As to the 'illegal entry' there an allegation that Channel 4 tried to get secret cameras into the schools but no mention that they succeeded... No one knows when...

It seems to me that there are several levels of 'fault' here. 1. the cultural aspect that Ben alludes to: "Neither accept nor deny". Whatever you discover about what you are told by the SES isn't relevant to the SES' Truth, so at the end of the debate that's all that's left - what was said in the fi...

I found Pincham's letter offensive and personally insulting. I have nothing but contempt for a man who can write to a group of people who have been personally harmed by his brown nosed obedience to the man who instigated the physical and emotional abuse of them as children, accuse them of 'illegal' ...

I think it worth pointing out that I have seen the schools recently. And it makes not an iota of difference to how I feel about what happened or what I believe ought to be done to rectify the situation.

Realistically? It's difficult for someone with our experience! Look at it this way: The children are currently in the care of a board of governors. Some of whom (even if only complacently) condoned violence towards children in their care. The children are currently in the care of Teachers. Some of w...

? How can you be "a relatively disinterested outsider" and a "concerned parent". This appears to be an oxymoron.

I would also like to ask for clarification of this paragraph in the open letter. I do not see that it is a threat, but what actually is meant by it? Why is it in the open letter; what disruption to the current pupils is being referred to? The disruption of an inquiry? The disruption of the comments...

Celia

Just to clarify, the words are not Shout's own but from a song by Tears for Fears and therefore not his to dedicate or otherwise. It's called 'Laid So Low (Tears Roll Down)'. They also wrote a song called 'Shout'.

It would appear that the "...Otherwise children will be harmed" letter that Stanton thought wise to report on... ...was none other than the open letter from Matt to the governors. Alban, for the benefit of those here who are not in the know, could you explain how the letter Stanton 'quoted' from ha...
