Honest insight into the public school system
“Tony Blair, a pupil between 1966 and 1971, “was among those who dared challenge hallowed Fettesian shibboleths,” though Mark Peel does not tell us what the future Labour leader campaigned against – or if he was punished.” http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/12123159.Honest_insight_into_the_public_school_system/ https://archive.is/E4Vwn

The Land of Lost Content: the Biography of Anthony Chenevix-Trench is a biographical book about the life of British headmaster Anthony Chenevix-Trench, written by Mark Peel. Chenevix-Trench had been a widely acclaimed teacher at Shrewsbury School, and subsequently headmaster at Bradfield College, Eton College and Fettes College, but was later criticised for his approach to corporal punishment. Published by Pentland Press in 1996, the book received mixed reviews, with questions over its neutrality and writing style, but plaudits for its insights into British culture and education.
Chenevix-Trench was known for his substantial tenures as headmaster of Bradfield College, Eton College and Fettes College; he had also taught at Shrewsbury School. He died in 1979. In 1994, a book by Tim Card, a former Vice-Provost of Eton, revealed for the first time that Chenevix-Trench had not left his position as headmaster of Eton of his own accord. There followed some newspaper articles critical of Chenevix-Trench’s use of corporal punishment, and numerous letters to the editor in response, most of which were positive about Chenevix-Trench’s legacy. Peel, a teacher at Fettes College at the time, published The Land of Lost Content two years later. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Land_of_Lost_Content
NOT all schools, however, are so obliging when it comes to the removal of portraits and plaques honouring people with a shameful past. Several times in the past few decades requests have been made for the removal of a plaque which hangs in the chapel of the Edinburgh private school Fettes College, which is dedicated to the former headmaster Anthony Chenevix-Trench. Though no abuse stories have yet emerged regarding Chenevix-Trench’s time at Fettes, there are many from his previous positions at Bradfield and Shrewsbury, and it is now widely believed his approach to flogging is what lay behind him being forced to leave Eton where he was headmaster prior to coming to Fettes. Former pupils claim he masturbated while beating them.
Among those who have spoken out about him is David Blackie, who requested in 2012 the removal of the plaque dedicated to Chenevix-Trench which is housed in the school’s chapel and carries the words “His door was always open, for he loved his fellow man”. He continues to ask for it’s removal to this day. Blackie says he recalls many occasions when he was summoned to Chenevix-Trench’s room for a beating, a request that would be made via just the word “bring” written on his Latin prep
“He would talk about my Latin and sort of snuggle up to me a bit,” Blackie said, “and then he would tell me I was to be beaten. I had to take down my pants and underpants and lie on this sofa, and he would go to the door and lock it. There was no question, his door was invariably locked, he did not want to be disturbed, neither did he want me to look round. He was very clear that what he was up to was his business.” Blackie has compared Chenevix-Trench to Jimmy Savile. “He abused his power to get away with it. What is wrong with it all is that while that plaque is there, he’s still getting away with it.”
In 1996, the eminent journalist Paul Foot, who was a pupil of Chevenix-Trench at Shrewsbury, wrote of his teacher and “sensuous fingering of his pupils’ buttocks before and during the interminable beatings”. Chevenix-Trench died in 1979.
Former alumni of Fettes include ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair, actress Tilda Swinton and journalist Harry Reid. https://spidercatweb.blog/2017/07/09/portrait-of-paedo-fettes-chenevix-trench/
Bullingdon Climate Fraud Fleming’s DEADF007 pedophiles
It’s all about those Bullingdon oath-taking ceremonies that Old Malvernians [notable alumni] don’t get to attend; ceremonies that would have evolved from pedophile beatings which the late Old Etonian oath taker, Ian Fleming, would have attended, and which would have preceded any oaths of loyalty to HMG.
Some historical background on birching at Eton:
A more interesting physical effect of these birchings, however, was that frequently, at the end of the flogging, the victim had an erection. Whether this was caused by sexual arousal, or merely by the physical trauma and flow of blood to the area I don’t know. Bearing in mind the shear savagery of the floggings at the school, and that a flogged boy was literally having every square inch of flesh on his buttocks and upper thighs, right up to his anal and perineal region, birched to a raw and bloody pulp, causing involuntary erection is really not surprising.
“Corporal punishment Eton used to be renowned for its use of corporal punishment, generally known as “beating”. In the 16th century, Friday was set aside as “flogging day”. Beating was phased out in the 1980s, the last recorded caning being administered by then Lower Master Jack Anderson to Sebastian Doggart, in January 1984. Until 1964, offending boys could be summoned to the Head Master or the Lower Master, as appropriate, to receive a birching on the bare posterior, in a semi-public ceremony held in the Library, where there was a special wooden birching block over which the offender was held. John Keate, Head Master from 1809 to 1834, took over at a time when discipline was poor. He restored order by vigorous and frequent use of the birch. He is supposed to have flogged 80 boys publicly on one day. Anthony Chenevix-Trench, Head Master from 1964 to 1970, abolished the birch and replaced it with caning, also applied to the bare posterior, which he administered privately in his office. Chenevix-Trench also abolished corporal punishment administered by senior boys. Previously, House Captains were permitted to cane miscreants over the seat of the trousers. This was a routine occurrence, carried out privately with the boy bending over with his head under the edge of a table. Less common but more severe were the canings administered by Pop (see Eton Society below) in the form of a “Pop-Tanning”, in which a large number of hard strokes were inflicted by the President of Pop in the presence of all Pop members. The culprit was summoned to appear in a pair of old trousers, as the caning would cut the cloth to shreds and leave the boy’s buttocks bleeding. This was the most severe form of physical punishment at Eton. Chenevix-Trench’s successor from 1970, Michael McCrum, retained private corporal punishment by masters, but ended the practice of requiring boys to take their trousers and underwear down when bending over to be caned by the Head Master.”
Eton boys when they are out on the rugby field traditionally playing with each other:
Eton had several “flogging blocks”, which were piece of furniture upon which the boys were birched. This piece of furniture consisted of a block of wood about 2ft high, in the shape of two steps, the lower one being about 10″ from the floor, and the upper one forming the top of the block. When a boy was to be birched, he had to completely remove his trousers and underpants, and mount the block. He did this by kneeling on the lower step, bending forward and resting his belly on the top of the block, and placing his hands flat on the floor on the far side of the block. Once in this position, younger boys would be strapped to hold them firmly in position, with two straps around his calves just below his knees, and another thicker strap around the small of his back, holding his belly firmly against the top of the block, to restrict movement of the boy’s bottom during flogging. The knee straps would normally be placed about 18″ apart, causing the knees to be spread apart. Older boys were expected to hold this position without being strapped.
The Wall Game – The nobility sit back and relax while the commoners do all the work! The holder of the ball is on his hands and knees with the ball between his knees in a submissive position. (The wall was erected in 1717)Extra points are awarded for knocking a boy off the wall with a wooden shoe known as a “brattling clog.”
Once in this position, the boy’s bottom was fully exposed, with the buttocks parted, fully exposing his anal cleft, perineal region and scrotum.
Then the flogging would begin. The birches used at Eton were really quite savage instruments. Five feet long (3 feet of handle and 2 feet of “bush”)The “bush” end being about12″ in diameter. They were well soaked in brine to make the twigs supple and strong before use. The strokes (of which up to five dozen could be given in a single flogging)were delivered with the master’s full strength.
Bullingdon Club Members
Old Etonian oath takers including Ian Fleming, Boris Johnson, David Cameron and George Osborne, and their Bullingdon Club associates, including the late King Edwards’ VII and VIII, would have grow up as pedophile victims or predators whose childhood oaths committed them to obey ‘Dearest Warmist Leaders’ in an ‘Age of Stupid‘.

Check out Ian Fleming’s M.O. for ‘T-Force‘ which allegedly included inserting DEADFOOT [DEADF007] saboteurs within a target organization such as HMG or, more recently, the EU, to neutralise its response to a T-Force attack by the Stupid Warmist pedophiles.
