    Yes, but at least we don't get 'definitely' and 'defiantly' mixed up. Or is it that you just can't spell? Or there again, maybe you are an employee of Knowhere just trying to stimulate some discussion? I think we should be told.

    Some of the teachers at Deben in the 80s should have been strangled at birth - especially Tehan, who did for maths what the bubonic plague did for Europe in the middle ages.

    The various twats, charlatans and just plain dumbarses who headed Deben's classrooms in those dark days are more numerous even than the tapeworms in poor old Matthews' anaemic gullet.
