Farwell CJOC



I read the lugubrious news that Mr Cook died a few months ago. I had not know much about his background until I read the article. I shan’t rehash all that. It is best now to recall Mr Cook as I knew him.

I was aware of Mr Cook from my first half. This was chiefly because his house dined in the same area as us. I never once saw him irked in five years. Running a house is very trying indeed and he was never vexed. I do not know anyone who had a bad word to say about him. He was a masterly schoolmaster. This beak was well turned out, portly, affable, gracious, engaging and always popular. He was mirthful and happy to engage in badinage. Yet his pupils never overstepped the mark. He was actuated by a true hearted concern for the wellbeing of his boys. He never let his family life interfere with his pedagogical duties.

I remember his Geography lessons and indeed his Divinity lessons. Mr CJO Cook was composed and placid. We instantly stood up as he entered the room. He had an effortless authority about him. He commended universal respect and affection. What was it about him? I cannot put my figure on it. He was an ungainly figure with a generous middle aged spread and too many teeth crammed into his mouth.

His lessons were filled with his unusual enthusiasms. He taught us lots about south-west England. Moreover, he found Japan enthralling. He had been visiting Nippon since the 1970s. Back then flying to the far side of the globe was prohibitively expensive and very few Japanese spoke English. He was venturesome and had an inquiring mind.

This beak had a passion for word searches. He held an impromptu spelling bee which Drysdale one. His piece de resistance was escholschza. I am probably misspelling it. I recall his school hall assembly when he did the Times crossword in five minutes. One cryptic clue was ”a little lower” which was a calf. The man was blessed with a corkscrew mind.

Mr Cook was unflappable and ever approachable. I remember him entirely fondly. He has been called to the great big classroom in the sky. He had a zest for teaching. The gentleman had a very positive impact on my life. He is sorely missed.

Sinn Fein’s hypocrisy on Brexit=================================================


SF all about self determination

Ireland as 32 counties not recognized by any land nor ever has been.

Ireland consisted of semi indepent kingdoms until 12the century

Siamese union – Isaac Butt. a dependency on England.

SF decries Brexit. adams said it was  ahostile act. democracy is hostile>

52% voted for Brexit. not in NI

NI should have another border poll. had one in 1973 58% turnout. 98% pro Union.

why ever revisit it? we were told EEC referendum was forever and EU referneudm was forever.

1918 election SF 73/106 seats.  25 unopposed wins.

but 51% of vite. see Wikipedia article. much personation, intimidation . voting th dead.

allowed to recosncier.

SF had no plan. no particular objections. what policies did they want differently?

lAWS, tax, socialism, language?

Brexit questions. what about trade, military, immigration and emigration.

all these apply to Ireland 1921 even more stringy

currneyc. sue sterling for 50 years? print it on differnet paper. allowed to do that anyway as in NI and Scotland. interest rates se tin London.

follow rules but have no say in them.

TuckeR Carlson v Avenatti==============================================


Carlson is a demagogue and a liar

said he would not call him seedy porn lawyer but the screen said it.

he did not let mike speak – interrupted mostly.

two modes – sychophancy and savagery. monstered avenatti.

you are wearing $1 000 suit. should a lawyer be badly dressed on telly? Tucker wears expensive clothes

nothing wrong with that

stormy is stripping. because she wants to. she makes lots of $$$$

tucker thinks avenatti should pay stormy. clients pay laywers not the other way aroud

Carlson loves profit motive. so why dislike avenatti making money

stormy likes profit

stormy is exploited says Carlson. not at all

Carlson haa no problem with expolotstion . againsr minimu wage

what is wring wit porn and strippers . military like it.

Carlson did not answer question about porn

Carlson would not answer if trump lying was ok. led to illegal campaigb payment,

Carlson is very punitive n law

she has got so much publicity and money from avenattis defence and publicity.

Avenatti has not lied so far as I know.
