I know, no updates for a while. Been a quiet week all round, to be honest.

I did read in the Echo yesterday about someone who got expelled from my old school for refusing to play hockey on Saturdays. Ridiculous if you ask me: why should anyone be forced to do school-related activities on a weekend? That’s what the weekend is for! I’m just glad that I showed no aptitude or interest in any extra-curricular activities whatsoever.

    That story made the national press. It made me ashamed to be a Merchants’ old boy. It’s ridiculous.

    It’s fascist, for crying out loud.

    “You WILL play hockey, because hockey is the most important thing, more important than you getting a good education, and to demonstrate this we will EXPEL you if you don’t play hockey”.

    Dawkins was always a bit of a bastard, on the sly.
