Busy Beadle  

Ink Pellet’s friend Phil Beadle has been a busy bee. Watch out for a follow-up to his How To Teach and – hopefully in time for Christmas – a collection of his columns from The Guardian, with as he says ‘all the rude bits in’.

As I write, I’m watching John Humphreys’ magnificent yet predictably depressing ‘Unequal Opportunities’. Maybe Mr Beadle, your next tome should be It’s Your Job Too, Parents!
