THE BONE BLOG WILL RETURN IN JANUARY 2015
Negotiations are continuing between CLASS WAR and TAYLOR McWILIAMS the owner of NO.1 Commercial Street over the POOR DOORS. Williams confirmed this:
‘He has been in touch with residents, office staff ect. at 1 Commercial Street they have ALL said they are very unhappy with the poor door alley and no one feels comfortable with it.’
I’ve never heard a developer admit this before and it should be publicised far and wide – segregated entrances don’t make anyone happy – IT’S A FUCKING BIG CONTRICK.
Poor Doors – report back any minute on outcome of Class War’s negotiations with Taylor McWiliams owner of No.1 Commercial Street. Our chief negotiator is on the case…………….

Dear Mr. Bone,
Re: Invitation to speak at the Oxford Union.
I am writing to invite you to speak at the Oxford Union. It would be a great privilege to host you as a guest, and I sincerely hope you will be able to accept this invitation.
As I am sure you are already aware, the Oxford Union has a rich history. Founded in 1823 to protect and uphold the principles of free speech and debate in England at a time when they were under threat, it has grown to become the most prestigious student society in the world. The Union has hosted world leaders in virtually every field, including former US Presidents Reagan, Nixon and Carter, Malcolm X, Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama, to name but a few. It would be an honour for us if you were to help continue this fine tradition.
We would be delighted if you would therefore speak on the motion:
‘This House Would Not Blame Oxbridge for its Rate of State School Admissions
The issue of Oxbridge’s rate of state school admissions remains a much-debated issue in British education. Despite Oxbridge’s expansive access efforts, more than 40% of places continue to go to the estimated 7% of the population who are privately educated., We hope this debate will explore whether these statistics represent a problem in themselves and whether Oxbridge should be considered directly responsible for their comparatively low state school intake.
As we are just beginning our preparations for the term we are also extremely flexible in terms of the date of the event. Our debates invariably take place on Thursday evenings and with this in mind, we hope to hold the discussion on one of the following days: 29nd of January 5th, 19th and 26th of February or 5th March. We do anticipate that many of these slots will be taken up quite quickly so if there is a particular date that works best for you I would be happy to pencil in the debate at your earliest convenience.
Our student members always constitute an engaged and enthusiastic audience and our events last year attracted coverage from the BBC, CNN, all major British national newspapers and international publications including the New York Times and the Economist. Furthermore, all our debates will be professionally filmed for our YouTube channel, which has had over 10 million views since its launch last year.
I do hope that you will be able to honour our world-renowned society by speaking in this debate. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you should have any further questions.
