How refreshing to hear the chief inspector standing up for the service that he was inspecting! To hear him say that lack of resources, underfunding and overcrowding were leading to a deteriorating service.

How sad for us all in the education service that we had to hear the chief inspector of prisons saying these things and not the chief inspector for schools. Any possibility of a job exchange, do you think?
