Goodbye Tony Benn, and thanks for your inspiration

“I think there are two ways in which people controlled. First of all frighten them, and secondly, demoralised.” Tony Benn

When I heard him say that, I actually started to cry.

This is exactly what is being done to our teachers (and others) and it breaks my heart.

The constant barrage of negative comments from Ministers, the changes to the education system, put there to erode decent working conditions and even our love for the job.  Novopay – keeping enough teachers fearful of not being paid on time or at all that it demoralised whole rafts of them. Bring in untrained teachers – scare the trained ones into putting up with anything in the hope they keep their jobs when it all goes to pot later down the line.

It’s all control.

Goodbye and bless your heart, Tony Benn, for your inspiration and your integrity.
