As we got older we kept the caps in our blazer (yes) pockets and just put them on to pass through the gates.
Wondered what memories people had of rules (good or bad). Like 'always shut the gate' 'no eating in the street' 'hold the door open for....' etc
I take great delight now at being able to say this to the teachers when I'm working at the school (though I leave out the slap round the head)
It's a bit severe, just for having an uneven number of pupile in your class.
I spent my entire time at school being the first person to arrive (I even got there before the teachers). It did wonders for my timekeeping though and I'm still a morning person.

Charles Race MA, Headmaster, Chester City Grammar School, some time in the 1950s. Referring to reports he'd received from concerned members of the public, of pupils disobeying the "No Cycling" signs, and to the forthcoming school trip to the Odeon (pronounced by him "Oh-day-on") to see Laurence Olivier in some Shakespeare film...don't ask me to remember which one, but I'm sure you'll tell me.
Anyway, yes, I was one of the offending "my boys".
This same esteemed Headmaster had written our school song, in Latin, entitled "Deva Deva, Gaudeamus" (Deva = Dee, the local river), to the tune of? Deutschland Deutschland, Uber Alles. And this in the 50s!

2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

If you pick 'abortion' or 'euthansia' then you are NOT allowed to speak for.
