Out and about in and around Honiton today, loads of Lib Dem placards and not a single solitary COnservayive one to behold.
It means nothing of course but it cheered me up (how sad is that?)
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Cranfield University has two campuses: the main campus is at Cranfield, Bedfordshire, and the second is at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom at Shrivenham, southwest Oxfordshire. The main campus is unique in the United Kingdom (and Europe) for having its own airport – Cranfield Airport – and its own aircraft, used for teaching and research

It rings a bell - I think Douglas Bader trained there ( and lots of other RAF pilots)


Edit - no, he was trained at Cranwell. An easy confusion!
