- Brilliant! RT @TESScotland: Government plans to get overweight teachers on the run. Love the idea of taking away their parking space.


- Are they expanding scheme to include tubby lecturers too? When my old school went health-promoting it was announced all choc bars were to be sold off, "Any 5 for pound;1". Couldn't make it up!


- I ain't running for no one. Brisk walk? EIS can't call this political correctness gone mad - Government are calling me a fatty! Next Govt will say I can't teach cos I've got a face that would turn a funeral down a side street.


- Loved @TESScotland April Fool. Would have loved to have been in staffroom when teachers were reading.
