Space prevented us giving the full flavour of the College Lecturers' Association annual conference last week. Readers may wonder why there was no reference to any motions from the fiery delegates. The reason is simple: there were no motions. For the 72-delegate conference was three people short of a quorum - a few sandwiches short of a picnic, one might say.
Hence the wide-ranging discussion on Clydebank College, redundancies and the villainous behaviour of the EIS leadership, which we reported last week. This allowed steam to rise from chests but had nothing so meaningful as a conference motion to stir things up.
However, as one old hand observed, "the CLA don't need a quorum to have a rammy".
