You missed the point

It’s a shame that Paul Mann has missed the point of the strike action taken by teachers on June 30.

All teachers are well aware of the bravery shown by men and women serving in Afghanistan.

It would benefit everybody if Paul Mann joined the campaign for decent public sector pensions for all those serving their country.

The cuts proposed by the government are unnecessary. According to You Gov (November 2010) 74% of the population support a one-off, 20% tax on the wealth of the richest 10%. This wealth tax would raise £800,000,000,000 (Dr Greg Philo, Glasgow Media Group.)

I’d also like to point out www.tda.gov.uk in case Paul is in interested in training to be a teacher.
