I would have thought this unbelievable if it hadn't been on the BBC.

What really bothers me is that this woman is teaching children.

Sorry James, it is kosher. This is from the Western Mail. You will need to scroll to the top after opening the file to read the whole story, which is actually even more bizarre than the piece the BBC carried.

The silver lining? She is a former teacher in a private school. Had she been a public school teacher, with "tenure".....?

They should give lessons on scamming in the classroom. The teachers might learn a thing or two.

I'm searching for a suitable analogy. The Ring Cycle is not quite it.
