Taxis and Truants

The cab driver who turned up to to take me to the BBC Radio 5 Live Studio tonight  opened the car door for me, helped me diddle with the seat  belt and  called me a very pretty lady.  He undid all his good work in a stroke by saying I reminded him very much of his mum.  He’s 62 and she’s 88.

I did an interview with Tony Livesey about taking children out of school for holidays in term time and suggested that as per the Queens Speech parents who want their children to sunbathe or ski  instead of study should band together and start their very own ‘Do Whatever I Want Whenever I Want’ Academy. They can take 52 weeks a year holiday instead of just 13 and teach their children that education doesn’t matter and neither does the rest of the class or the teacher.
