Alas, the only blank space on the wall was that reserved for Jacqui Lait, the first woman MP in the Conservative whips' office, whose response spent a full five weeks in the custody of Royal Mail. Could privatisation be a step closer?
Melvyn Haggarty, principal teacher of history and exhibition organiser, had expressed jowl-quivering disappointment at Lait's failure to reply and even considered a letter to the Prime Minister to report her discourtesy.
The posties got their act together just in time, but too late for the exhibition. This is rather a shame for Jotter. "Tory whipping embarrassment at Paisley Grammar" would have been a more memorable story.
