they're working on it Max - along with pirate gimp masks, pirate wellies, and pirate umbrellas no doubt......the "franchise" is getting a bit out of order for many......

Interesting.

When I read the underlying premise of 'most' religions they usually sound pretty reasonable to me. It is just when I see how people have evolved organisations around them that I start to scratch my head.

I always liked the original pirate thing of some peeps saying you don't have to be superman and buy all the latest stuff to complete an Ironman. It remonds me of Alf Tupper and appeals to the British love of the underdog. If being a pirate is now all about what kit you have, etc then it would seem that it may be in danger of drifting away from its core origins.

By the way, are the pirate wellies to appeal to the Welsh

and there, my friend, you're not far wrong in many people's eyes. but then, things evolve and change and as they say, you can't please all of the people all of the time, or perhaps even some of the people, some of the time.

PS - I'm trying barefoot with the girls these days.....

I reckon so long as you've got the Pirate top to race in - then you're good to go. Everything else is just extras.

Gimp Mask ? Thats what we get for letting Barley organise Kit !

Interesting reading .... JS to the Pirates in 12 pages!

I met the man in several social occaisions for many years running (no pin intended) and between myself and my colleagues all I can say is that he gave me the creeps, he was certainly 'an old perv' and thats how we referred to him, nothing ever happned to any of us as far as I know ... twas just an instinct

I wonder how many more will be implicated in this?

I've just read a piece in the news that showed pictures of the 3 women who claim jimmy saville 'interfered' with them. There was a current picture of the women and then a picture of each of them from the 70s and the caption read now, then, now, then, now then......

jeezus, it's not as if the rumours hadn't been there for years when he was alive so I'm not at all surprised that it's nowcoming out. just pity it didn't happen when he was alive as he was clearly not a nice person and shoud have been prosecuted then.

as Mouldy says, it will be interesting to see how many other big names get fingered (so to speak......)

is it true that some of the women went to the police a number of years ago and that he was brought in for questioning......................

I wonder if so if these reports will be looked into to check if in fact there was no evidence or if once again the police at the time did a cover up on the request of a higher body

JS (allegedly) used to say when any papers threatened to out him - "print that and Stoke Mandeville loses it's funding".  it seems that was enough to get them to back off.   Saint vs Sinner approach - it seems the saintly side of him always won them over.

Paedofilia has always been here, condoned by the Church, perpetrated by our  Royal Family (England at least)...

Name: Isabella of Angoulême, age 12
Married: King John of England in 1200

Name: Eleanor of Provence, age 13
Married: King Henry III of England on January 14, 1236

Name: Philippa of Hainault, age 14
Married: King Edward III of England in 1328

...to name but three.

King John was actually 34 when he married a twelve year old! But hey, on other threads we have Jesus freaks telling us what a stabilising influence the church has been on society. Not that they used to marry paedofiles to little girls.

If that was the legal marriage age at the time, is it paedophilia? Let's not forget the age of consent across Europe RIGHT NOW is from 13 to 18.
