A 'likely' story

2nd July 2010 at 01:00

Big thumbs up for comedic use of the word "likely" in your caption: "We're coming in: but Ofqual is likely to have a lighter touch than police" (with a picture of riot police to accompany the story, "Watchdog plans surprise raids on exam boards", June 11). Another organisation "likely" not to employ police in riot gear to batter down doors is Ofsted, even if schools continue to turn them away when inspectors forget their ID.
