But one old curmudgeon, watching proceedings on television, was unimpressed. NASUWT chief Nigel de Gruchy grumled that Blair did not even try to make his appeal for votes relevant to his non-voting audience, talking straight over the pupils' heads to the television cameras. All in all, he would have got low marks from inspectors for using inappropriate material and failing to tailor it to his class. As for taking his jacket off as he took the stage (prompting screams from the girls), what a bad example for the pupils! "It wouldn't have happened in my school," Nigel harrumphed.
