Gerry Wilson, the perfect civil servant who did not get where he is today by being anything else, took the opportunity of the TESS Higher Still conference this week (pages 4-5) to denounce the recent IT survey of school computing by the Scottish Parent Teacher Council.
"That's the most controversial series of remarks I've made since 1964, " said the head of the Scottish Office Education and Industry Department. Chronological note: in 1964, Wilson was a lad of 25. He was shortly promoted to head the private office of the minister of state in Labour's Scottish Office team. Perhaps further greatness awaits.
