This brings back some horrible memories of my old headmaster. I was unfortunate enough to be sent to a very exclusive private/public school (never understood that bit). This was the early 80s though the school seemed be stuck in a much earlier decade. We had to go in on Saturdays ffs! The headmaster taughty the sky fairy lessons and was quick to use physical punishment to any bit who could repeat the chosen bible passage from memory. Still, I never memorised any, suffered the beatings and was glad when told I was disruptive and wasnt welcome back for the last 2 years πŸ™‚

Yep, my experience of education in Britain was just like that, if not as dramatic. Only a state school, but certainly shabby Christian bigots, happily lying there heads off, for easy promotion.

This reminds me of one of my favorite series based on a book titled: "To Serve Them all My Days." [] It was about 2 headmasters who were unconventional and the later one was temporarily replaced by one described above. Seem in England private schoos are dubbed 'public'.

This must be Geoffrey Fisher he’s talking about...nothing at all surprising, either in his meteoric rise to the ecclesiastical heights or that he liked thrashing young there? Patronage and hypocrisy my dear boy, what else do you expect?

Is this factual, or one of Roald Dahl's stories ?

Posted by MattHardyA Boris promise is just a lie that hasn't happened yet. Whatever Sue Grey says, no way is Boris going to admit he lied and resign.

Posted by HawkeyeNew to this group, thanks for having me :) Thought I would share something that has had my poor wee atheist brain turning for a few days (the article is a few days old).

Posted by webspider555I’m beginning to wonder whether our government is just incompetent or are all these things happening just to get us in a rage arguing amongst ourselves.
