Origins[ edit ] A university in the city of Canterbury was first considered in , when an anticipated growth in student numbers led several residents to seek the creation of a new university, including Kent. However, the plans never came to fruition. In the Education Committee of Kent County Council explored the creation of a new university,  formally accepting the proposal unanimously on 24 February The name adopted reflected the support of both the city and county authorities; as well as the existence of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, which officially opposed the use of a name too similar to its own.

Below – My TV debate with Cardiff Freemason Jim Bevan – – – – Freemasonry and Witchcraft initiation rites compared “The great strength of our Order lies in its concealment; let it never appear in any place in its own name, but always covered by another name, and another occupation. None is better than the three lower degrees of Free Masonry; the public is accustomed to it, expects little from it, and therefore takes little notice of it.
Next to this, the form of a learned or literary society is best suited to our purpose, and had Free Masonry not existed, this cover would have been employed; and it may be much more than a cover, it may be a powerful engine in our hands. By establishing reading societies, and subscription libraries, and taking these under our direction, and supplying them through our labours, we may turn the public mind which way we will.
NOTES AND EXTRACTS ON THE HISTORY OF THE LONDON & BIRMINGHAM RAILWAY CHAPTER 11 THE STATIONS INTRODUCTION “There is a great deal more difficulty than would at first be imagined in laying out a railway station; and, perhaps, in every one now in existence, if it had to be entirely built over again, some change would be desirable: there are so many things to be amalgamated, and such .
An index of the several hundred vintage vehicle photographs featured on the site. Master index of the vintage motoring gallery. The vintage transport photos in this section of the site are now spread over 18 pages. In an attempt to make some kind of sense of them all, I’ve listed them on this one page, in alphabetical order. Some pages feature several different photographs of a vehicle type, whereas in other instances, a variety of photos showing one particular type of car might appear in more than one page.
Hopefully this new index of vintage vehicle photos will help visitors to the site find pics of the cars, lorries, coaches or vans that most interest them. Genealogy research If you are researching your family tree or history, and have old photos that show motor-cars that need identification, by all means send them over and I’ll see if I can help out. If you have any photos like those featured here, and would be willing to share them, it’d be great to hear from you.
All types and ages of cars, vans, trucks and public service vehicles buses, coaches and taxis now feature here, but this is very much a ‘work in progress’ section of the site, and it’ll continue to be built up as I find more photographs to put on, and more get sent over to me. Thanks to everyone who has helped out by either sending their own photos over to include here, or who have helped identify some of the vehicles shown in the photos. Vehicles that I’ve not been able to identify usually end up on the Mystery Cars photo page, until they are identified.

The popular city centre venue is facing a licence review after security staff kicked out the year-old after she collapsed inside.
Separated from friends, she was lured into a van and driven to an industrial estate where she was raped and sexually assaulted. Rapist Zaheer Abbas, 30, was jailed for 11 years while taxi marshal Sajad Hussain, 35, was jailed for six years for sexual assault. The distress on the face of the jurors was all too evident and understandable. Both trials saw chilling CCTV of the pair outside the club during the early hours of February 20 last year.
She was then driven to an industrial estate in the Nechells area of the city where she was raped by Abbas and sexually assaulted by Hussain. The horrific ordeal lasted more than an hour before the twisted pair dropped the victim back at her student accommodation. The court heard the student, who had been a virgin, had since dropped out of her course at the University of Birmingham. But Judge Stacey said she did not accept either man had any remorse for what had happened.

It’s little wonder London is one of the world’s top tourist destinations, attracting upward of 15 million visitors each year. Britain’s capital city is a vibrant arts and entertainment center (its theaters are always busy), and 50 years after the Beatles, the country’s music scene still rocks.
Spare some change for the BNP? Let it not be said that here at Sump we’re afraid to tackle a little controversy. In fact, we love it, especially when it comes from the British National Party; the party that everyone loves to hate—or is that hates to love? To that end, we’ve just received a press release from BNP chairman Nick Griffin complete with an attached begging bowl seeking funds.
Fifty-two year old Griffin is already a Member of the European Parliament North West England and now he’s campaigning to seize control of the London Assembly; that august body of never-do-wells who run the political machinery underpinning one of the greatest cities on earth. Only, the way Nick’s carrying on at the moment, it looks more likely that he’s gonna find himself not in the mayors seat but in jail for stirring up some serious racial hatred at a time when tensions are higher than they’ve been in a generation.
Just check out the rhetoric: Think of the shame of the Establishment, who have ignored this systematic abuse of our innocent children and even tried to jail me for speaking out about it in two gruelling trials in Leeds Crown Court in Except that our recollection of those riots revealed an awful lot of white faces mixed up in the melee. And as for Muslim paedophile gangs, we’ve never seen the slightest evidence that Asians have demonstrated a greater propensity for illegal “grooming” than any other demographic.
But what’s it all got to do with British classic biking? Well, quite a lot actually. Most of us are into our Triumphs, Nortons, BSAs, Ajays and whatever not simply for the hardware, but also for the cosy illusion of a golden age of British biking that goes with it; the idea of rolling English countryside and quaint English country towns and the lilac-smelling freedom of the open road.

The Fallacy of the “Maker’s Mark” Before sending an item to be assayed and hallmarked at a British assay office a person must first register their details with the assay office they want to use. The reason for this is pretty obvious – the assay office needs to know who to charge for their services, where to return the items, and who to hold responsible and punish if an item is found to be sub-standard, which in earlier times included sentence to the pillory.
This person is called the “sponsor”, which in this context means the person who takes responsibility for the items submitted. The sponsor does not need to be someone directly involved in making the items that they submit for hallmarking. An item will not be hallmarked unless it carries a sponsor’s mark, this is a legal requirement. At one time the sponsor or maker of the item stamped the mark, but now the assay office will hold a punch on behalf of a sponsor and stamp the sponsor’s mark.
This is how my work is marked, my punch is held at the London Assay Office. A “hallnote” submitted with work to be marked includes a declaration of where the item was made and who is the sponsor, and the sponsor’s mark is struck accordingly. The details registered must include an address in Britain, and at least one punch mark. The punch is used to mark items that are submitted to the assay office with the sponsor’s mark so that the items they submit can be easily identified.
The punch mark must be unique, and usually consists of a person or company’s initials set within a shaped “shield”. If the initials are the same as someone already registered, details such as the shield shape will be made different so that the two marks can be distinguished. Cameo and Intaglio marks Punches were individually registered, by blackening them in a candle flame and pressing them onto paper or by striking them into a sheet of copper or lead.
