Great Quotes of Our Time: No 94
On my way to play golf-classic radio phone in moment from an ex teacher. She said: "I joined the police when I realised I would rather arrest children than trach them." From Iain Dale's Blackberry
"I have not benefited from politics" (last time he stood in at PMQs, to David Cameron)
"There is no such nationality as English" (the 2001 census response as to why you could be Scottish or British, but not English)
Both by that Dirty Old Man of Hull.
A Swiss teacher once told me that in Switzerland teachers are paid well, so they know whose side they're on, but they pay policemen badly, to keep them in a bad mood.
Perhaps we should try that.
