  1. Yes he suspected he had cancer and took his own life. very sad, nice man.
  2. 20 hours ago, Davy51 said: I didn't smoke , but i remember the outside bogs ,a relic from the past. The bogs were disgraceful two bits of wood screwed to the bowl was the seat, no toilet rolls provided and and no wash basins just 4 cubicles and a gutter . Wouldn't get away with it these days.
  3. Green...I'm sure he got pleasure belting pupils total bad ass Also there was Mr Scott the maths teacher wasn't the hitting type just extremely sarcastic and seemed to enjoy putting people down with his withering comments He just couldn't distinguish between playful and hurtful sarcasm.
  4. Birket reminded me of the headmaster in Please Sir Inept and bumbling .

Then your Mum got half of all wages, which suited me fine.. food gas electric everything included 👍!

And when elections happen these figures are in the minds of the electorate not the actual candidate.. For example who was quoted this morning about the result? ""Diane Abbott, an ally of Sir Keir Starmers predecessor Jeremy Corbyn, tweeted: "Crushing defeat for Labour in Hartlepool. Not possible to blame Jeremy Corbyn for this result. Labour won the seat twice under his leadership."" What has that to do with the reasons be
