Philip May’s wife writes

st theresa.jpg Good afternoon again,

And may I take this opportunity to agree with Philip that there is no question of who wears the trousers (brown, leather) in this school. It’s me. All Philip does is take out the bins, which on this one occasion were full of suggestions for inter-departmental, cross-discipline, all-inclusive talks to try and solve the impasse in the staff room over our exit from the European Education Union. He was quite right to bin all of these suggestions before I had the chance to read them, because I would only have got very cross that so many people were persisting in having ideas that weren’t mine.

Anyway, it’s all academic now, after my enormous triumph at Debating Soc. Mr Brady came up with an excellent new motion, namely: “This house believes that the Headmistress’s plan to leave the EEU is the best possible plan, apart from the bits we don’t agree with, and that she should come up with an entirely different plan which we do agree with.”

This was a breakthrough moment in the history of the school, and I decided to support the motion and defeat my own plan. Which I did! Success at last! I’ve proved the doubters wrong and got everyone to agree, except those who didn’t, and even they agreed that my next plan couldn’t be worse…
