CALL me old-fashioned but I was stunned by the leaflet sent to National Union of Teachers members this week, promoting the Teacher's Provident Society as a savings scheme for teachers. It was accompanied by a supporting letter signed by Doug McAvoy and contained the folloing words.

"At the end of the 10-year savings period, the money is yours to spend as you wish. So you can start planning your child's education, for example."

Maybe this is "New NUT".
