And the 'old-boys' return annually to play cricket and renew their contacts, how many state schools facilitate such on-going contact with former pupils?

Institutions like this are homosexual breeding grounds , when in nature does the male species get taken away completely from the female , its never happens in normal conditions ..These boys also miss out on a loving familly enviroment due to their toffee nosed bread head parents trying to indoctrinate their boys into the pyramid system as high up as possible ! Winchester college is riddled with freemasonary who make the mafia look like **** cats . according to sir winston churchhills school report he was a danger and a **** right nuissance to the younger boys !!

Im proud to have grown up on a council estate in winch in the 70 s stanmore was like beirut , but we had real fun .I m just trying to highlight a certain highly corrupt brotherhood which encouraged ,condoned and covered up the child abuse which happened at childrens homes all over this country . Imagine how that felt ?? With no one to tell and no mum and dad ! THESE institutions litterally farmed kids with no one to turn to the softest targets going .

What a coincidence! So did I! Went to the local primary school as well.

Fortunately with the combination of a good upbringing and an affliction (or so I get the impression it is nowadays) of a hard work ethic, I've managed to get myself into a position where I don't need to be jealous of anyone.
