Perhaps somebody is touting for business among the 200,000 teachers who put infor the threshold and now, thanks to David Blunkett's little High Court difficulty, could have a year to wait for the cash.

Sadly, however, the fax continues: "We do not break the law." How disappointing that the heavies won't be turning up at Sanctuary Buildings for "a word".
