I have to apologise. I have now established that the letter to which I referred was, in fact, the open letter. Apparently, the combination of 'disruption' and 'safe' was interpreted as threatening, coming as it did after leafletting and graffiti at St James. However, I should not have raised a hare ...

Chittani has put a ball into play and you can either let it dribble into the undergrowth while stamping feet in the pavilion - or do something with it.

OK, it's risky, but life's like that.

Why not take the opportunity to meet? Life doesn't always give second chances, sometimes it just carries on without you.

Daska - I did repost it only a few days after I first removed it. Several people asked for it - so up it went. Thanks for the suggestion.

Good luck with this ET - a positive move. Mahomet and the Mountain.

I understand that a letter has been written to the person concerned asking him what he means by saying that 'otherwise the children will be harmed'. It would be quite wrong to suggest that I'm implying that anyone who has responded to my orginal post on the subject has been involved with this. As ET...

It was a friend of mine in the School. I was saying that I'd been called a stooge on this board and how laughable that was and the conversation developed from there.

It is not my intention to inflame the situation nor do I believe that I have done so. I do not believe that I have been duped or fed a line. I'm afraid that such a letter is quite possible given the fury displayed by some posters on this board. It is up to whoever wrote such a letter to post it on t...

Daska - you have put your finger on the problem. I, too, feel that my recent posts have not been as insightful as they could have been. My position is uncomfortable. However, I am sincere, I hope that counts for something.

Ben - your questions are completely valid. No - I haven't seen the letter and I'm unlikely to. Yes, my post was directed very generally to anyone reading this site, quite possibly someone out there who may or may not have been a former pupil of St James who wishes to take direct action. That person ...

I heard this evening that a letter has been written to the governors of St James demanding this and that, and ending with the chilling words, '...otherwise the children will be harmed'. Blackmail is always intolerable and threats to harm children are wicked and insupportable. If true, this is a new ...

[Leaving Stanton to speak for herself, maybe you'd like to explain to me in what sense I'm a stooge? Or, you could just admit that it's another example of the casual, unthinking aggression that seems to be the stock-in-trade hereabouts.] Unthinking? I certainly hope so. If you were thinking I would ...

You're right, Daska, of course. Minors - and the vulnerable - need to take special care and be looked after.

A few days ago I received a letter from John Story, in reply to the one I was invited to send to the governors as a result of having contributed to the Townend inquiry. Reading between the lines it struck me that it would be worthwhile for anyone, who has not yet taken part in the reconciliation pro...
