The ”lovely lad” and the murderous teacher…..

July 11, 2009

Now that teacher Peter Harvey has been charged with attempted murder, local residents are coming out of the woodwork to comment on the parties involved……we should take all comments with a pinch of salt. Perhaps more of a good point of reference would be the boy’s school reports?

Neighbours commented to ( that oracle of truth and moral integrity, The Daily Mirror) on Jack Waterhouse, rumoured to have sworn at Harvey and wound him up : 

  • Jack was “a lovely lad who wouldn’t hurt a fly”. ‘
  • ‘He’s a good quiet lad and I’m surprised he’s mixed up in this sort of thing.” 
  • We’ve never had trouble from him in the seven years we’ve lived here.
  • “Jack’s not like a typical 14-year-old, he’s a lot quieter. He’s also very small for his age.”

My son is an angel in the classroom and as soon as he sets foot in my car, is a devil………

I have seen children elective mutes throughout their school careers, who sing and dance and recite poetry at home.

Children who behave perfectly at home with their parents can be uncontrollable with an audience in school.

Let’s wait and see. As I said, if I was little Jack’s parents, and wanted to show what a shining example of a good student he was, I’d publish his school reports- asap.

MJ Murdered

July 10, 2009

Was Michael Jackson given a lethal overdose of anaesthetic which caused his heart to stop ?

CNN were reporting this morning that investigators may be putting the tag ‘homicide’ on the case.

I thought for a while he was alive.He’s not. He’s not living in a gothic castle in Romania or Hungary. I thought a while back, he was a paedophile- but that was the media who made me think that. It’s sad what the media can make us think, without any evidence there at all, except one person’s say so……

In the case of  the possible homicide of Michael Jackson, I find the……..doctors, nurses,pharmacists, media guilty……
