Dear The Two Ronnies - sorry, Michaels Wilshaw and Gove - please stop competing over who can say the most inflammatory thing. In reply to your latest ill-conceived comments, Sir Michael Wilshaw: outside of my contracted hours I plan lessons, mark work, build my NQT portfolio, run a club and offer lunchtime tutorials, just like the majority of teachers. The Two Ronnies also used to make me cry. That, however, was with laughter.

Mal H, Science NQT.
