Institutional Bullying In The Olden Days


Even the raven could see that, with his deformity, there was no possible way that young Hardbottom could wear the school boater. Being sent once more to the Principle's office was tantamount to bullying and most unfair. The house master should know better!  It did however, turn out to be a blessing in disguise as, perhaps ironically, it was this injustice that led Jack to study law at Oxford and eventually to lock horns with some of the most accomplished legal minds in the British Isles. Horny Hardbottom of the Old Baily was a force to be reckoned with, and a master of jurisprudence, until fate intervened in the form of a mating ritual with an up and coming young stag that went tragically wrong in 1926.
