... how they do run for cover, like a lot of wee timorous conies.
The head of Clifton College, anxious to distance his establishment from a member of his CR who retired in 2001 and is now suspected of an offence, said that very few of the (present) teaching staff would ever have met him.
Really? Has there been a near-complete turnover at Clifton in only ten years?
It must be a pretty dodgy school if nobody wants to stay there teaching, or if masters have to be sacked for incompetence with such frequency that there is almost nobody there now who taught there before 2001.
How very droll, head master.
Pull the other one, head master.
