After 10 years teaching in secondary and further education, I have 'come up for air'. I have observed and experienced some 'questionable' management practices which, in my opinion, are morally unacceptable. These go far beyond the rough-and-tumble of difficult times and into much darker areas of political prejudice and underhand methods.
To quote Mario Savio:
'There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part; you can't even passively take part’.

I’m currently writing a first draft for a musical. It's called Marty Gull (Marty[r] Gull[ible]). It’s a surreal, satirical, tragicomic piece of musical political theatre. For further details, please see the following:
