It does rather seem that this thread should be re-titled to 'Milliners don't know what stress is'


Well given their gold-plated pensions I think it could still be about teachers but be more accurately entitled "Millionaires don't know what stress is"...

:0)

If you stir it too much it starts to curdle...

That's quite amusing.

Ooh. Refuting current figures with ones from almost a year ago? Good move!

Read the article it quotes the same figures used in the Telegraph. Besides I think I'd probably believe a bone chucker more than I would the Telegraph. Besides I couldn't give a rat's arse, I don't have a teaching pension in the UK but I do feel they are being unfairly targeted and misrepresented.

I knew a dedicated teacher. She was full of enthusiasm for her job and loved the kids who shared her views. Unfortunately she was under-minded at every turn by the curriculum/OFSTED and her head teacher and a class comprised of 60% special needs kids. I met her one day, walking in the rain in the middle of the afternoon. I thought it was odd that she was out and about and she signed off sick with stress shortly afterwards.

Teachers have real passion for their profession and sometimes everything conspires against them. Fast forward three years and a change of head and everything changed. It is now one of the few "outstanding" schools in our county. A great teacher is an artist. They need to be nurtured and appreciated. It's more like being a an actor on stage then a pen pusher. I think the profession would be better if people realised that.

Presumably a typo, but somehow very apt

I see the telegraph is now castigating the civil service for having "flexitime", an unusual employment term only offered to around 50% of the working population (based on a limited sampling - every job I've had in the last 30 years offered it, and well over 50% of the people I know who are employed also have it). This is apparently some special bit of "gold plating" which someone has to resign over - which just goes to show why all newspaper journalists are far to thick to be tolerated in our society and should be recycled into cattlefeed.

In the same article (front page, above the fold) it claims to be horrified that some civil servants will be able to work from home during the olympics if their normal office is somewhere that would make travel difficult during this period. Surely this is just a sensible accomodation? What's the problem?

Quite a lot of civil servants already work from home as a matter of course. This is to cut the cost of office accommodation. Lest anyone think that it's a cushy option, there are quite stringent checks in place to make sure that, if you spend an afternoon on the golf course, you do it in your own time - ie, you take leave to do it.

The problem is the TfL workers who are getting paid extra for working during the Olympics. Clearly the Telegraph thinks that, if we're paying them more money, we should make absolutely sure that they're overworked enough to deserve the extra money.

Torygraph is transforming itself into Rantograph.
