All right. Look, guys - I'm sorry if making a few enquiries to establish the truth is upsetting, but I think that that attitude in the past might have forestalled a few problems ... OK, for the record I am now reasonably satisfied that the PPIAG is not a sinister cult-like bunch of cult-busters, and...

Bella, You're a better man than I! Being female clearly doesn't preclude the possession of metaphorical cojones of steel. But anyway enough of this rough barrack-room banter. There is only one point on which I would take issue. Your general intention to have a go at something that might seem counter...

And I must differ from my honoured friend Merry. It may be uncomfortable to be grilled by a journalist when you know you are on shaky ground. But if you have firm foundations you won't be troubled by any hard questions. You can't say, "please don't question anything I say because it was very brave o...

Elizabeth, How do you square the idea that we have been brave and true with David Boddy's performance last week? "The governors had never really heard of these allegations before". Que ? I need hardly go over the evidence that contradicts this ... you know the truth as well as I do. These people are...

Mike, You may have a point there. However, what I pick up from Matthew's post (thank you) and from other private contacts I've had with complainants, is that there isn't unanimity or a single agenda. On both sides, there are people who want to find truth and effect reconciliation, as well as people ...

Too bloody many IMHO! OK, maybe that's a good reason. And I'm beginning to disbelieve the conspiracy theory. But the guys and girls also need to recognise that it is St James that has the threat of legal action hanging over it, and not the other way round. If they want to make use of lawyers, why no...

You talk of 'smokescreeens', but hasn't the 'official' reaction (or is that 'non-reaction?) of the "dark suits" in the SES (or SoES) been just that? ADG Well, of course it has! Hello?! Hey, forgive me for asking, but are you in any way tone-deaf? Or is just that you and Anton gave all your Oz humou...

Fair enough. Within the SES what is being said or hinted at is that there may be an effort going on to gather evidence that will strengthen a claim for substantial damages. St James has been advised by solicitors representing an anonymous group that a claim is being considered. If that is the case, ...

Not so. If there is no difference between the stated aims and the actual aims, then we are at one. But if there is a hidden agenda or undercurrent of something else, then we should know. Don't you think? But then, maybe you do know. The rest of us don't have the luxury of peeping behind the curtain,...

Well, let's wait and see. So far the results suggest more than anything that not many complainants are actually reading the board at the moment.

Mercy bucket! Mike, May I say at this point that this is not to cast any aspersions on THIS web site. With each passing day the pain of reading it becomes easier to reconcile with the reflection that it was and is so necessary. My only concern is that if there are sinister people sticking their oars...

The mysterious (and mysteriously anonymous) PPIAG

Well aren't PPIAG a nice bunch of people? http://www.stjamesinquiry.org/ I'm sure most of us, from whatever camp, can happily endorse most of their aims. Change is needed and overdue. They seem reasonable and moderate. We should all regard them as friends. Or should we? Is there a good reason for an...

Bella, FT et al I think your instincts might be spot on here about 'Justice!' Maybe not, after all, the knight in shining armour ... Here's an attempt at identikit picture (sorry Mike, the smilies aren't doing it yet for me): - someone with a history in St James or the School? - someone whose primar...

Ross, You make some valid points, but there are a lot of extreme and wild remarks as well. I think you should consider whether concision would enable you to make your point better. Plainly, I disagree with your view that the School does no good and is incapable of reform. Rational people like Bella ...
