The problem with your argument here is that three of the ex-abusers:- Messrs Southwell, Lacey, and Hipshon are still being employed by Mrs Hyde, Mr Boddy, and the governors, at St James today! (Mr Hipshon may no longer be still be working there - somebody please correct me if I'm mistaken!)

You have obviously missed the postings and apologies by Messrs Barber, Hipshon, and Rasmussen, and the accounts of meetings with them from former pupils:-Matthew, Paul, and Tom. The only pity is that the remaining nine abusers don't have the guts to step forward, follow the first three's courageous lead, and offer the same. Then perhaps this inquiry would not even be necessary.
