Boo to baboon

13th October 1995 at 01:00
It is hardly helpful when Michael Austin tells his governors that the only compensation for their commitment is "regular and ritual slagging off from NATFHE officers" (FE Focus, TES September 22) .

Governors are not going to have a very open mind when lecturers' attempts at opening a dialogue are described thus. Instead of the year of the baboon, might I suggest "the year of the blinkered horse" or "the year of the bull in a china shop"?
