Sixties revisited

THE TIMES. Beware the return of leftie teachers

THE desire to make this (New Year's Eve) an event of lasting personal significance, the race to conceive the first child of the millennium and rather more informal liaisons this evening (will lead) to a baby boom that makes the 190s look like a nuns' tea party. So by 2010 there will again be panic at the Department for Education and Employment, resulting in another legion of pig-ignorant adolescent lefties being funnelled into the sausage machine of teacher training.
