Damien Day: Alive and Well

Mog's feeling a bit used at the minute. That'll teach her to talk to journalists.

In case you didn't know, Mog currently teaches in an inner-city community college with a fearsome reputation. Today, the A-level politics set had invited local candidates in for a debate. BBC London were there to cover it, having told the school that it would be a feature on their event.

Mog turned on excitedly to find that the content was indeed political. It contrasted her school with a local city academy they described as "state of the art", followed by her school as in "a state of decay". All that was missing was the number of a donations hotline.

Never trust the BBC, is all I can say. Maybe Alistair Campbell was right after all. It'll definitely teach her students something about politics though.
