Let me introduce you to a new group, a pressure group if you like, who have resolved not to pressure anybody as long as things are going along the right road. We are Friends of St Bede’s College in Manchester (FOBCIM) or FOBs for short I set out in 2011 […]

Historic Abuse Is Now At Bede’s
Yesterday after welcoming the new head of St Bede’s and offering him my best wishes in a posting entitled Salve Richard Robson, a prospective parent wrote a comment asking why I am so vindictive about the school when he on inspection found it so warm and wonderful. He asked me […]
Egos Obliterated At St Bede’s College In Manchester
Well there it is in black and white the latest drip from the stalactite of chaos that is St Bede’s College in Manchester. With the expected but yet still surprising departure of Monsignor Michael Quinlan, erstwhile chair of governors of St Bede’s College, minds will begin to ponder and try […]
Timothy Hopkins And All That.
I was alerted to Father Timothy Hopkins having all charges dropped by the Criminal Prosecution Service regarding his alleged sexual assault on a young girl at a previous parish. At the time of the police investigation he was parish priest at St Mary’s in Denton and also on the Board […]
Comment From A Bedian Parent.

News For Parents Of Pupils At St Bede’s College In Manchester.
This particular posting is more a news item than anything, at least news to me and vindication of my blog Les Disparus of 10th October 2011 when I said Mr Mike Barber’s star was still twinkling. For all new parents, those who have only known the despot Kearney, Mike Barber […]
Father Ted, Can It Get Any Worse.
Well he is back and do not tell me you don’t know who I am talking about. I will give you a clue. He is a pinchbeck headmaster, one in name only without the qualities of people with that title. He is an ultra right wing Catholic, steeped in the […]
