No. The Prof is correct.

Not Hilary Benn - it's Richard Stanton (4th row first column)

(3rd row second column - next to Jezza) - Ken Livingstone

Pat Wall - (2nd row third column)

I knew RIchard Stanton - a good Brighton comrade. Kicked out a long time ago IIRC.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.
