Wilshaw would have approved most wholeheartedly.
A lot of argung has been caused not by simply differing opinions but rather opinions (and suggestions) misre/presented as facts.
For example 50 million a day lets fund our NHS instead.
and, of course, 'unelectable' to describe an MP who has been repeatedly elected and reelected since 1983.
[QUOTE="Doitforfree, I nicely say that perhaps X part were singing a wrong note in a certain bar. /QUOTE]
When I tried that with the altos in my chamber choir the chief culprit (now long gone) informed me loftily that SHE did not make mistakes. These days we trust each other and I'm more likely to say 'You sang a bum note there, Paddy'.
I am always wrong. Even when I'm right, I'm wrong. I was right once but that was in school and I was the teacher.
Good colonial overlord attitude there.
I'd be eager to hear any choir conducted by a committee.
It was the 'Paddy' singing the bum note, not a Hugo or a Fotheringale (depending on school).
Paddy is Patricia and if she has an Irish connection I know nowt about it. I wouldn't like to enquire as to her age but I know she left school slightly early than I did. We often swap musical quotations, one of her faves being 'Never sing louder than lovely'. Labels can be misleading. Two of my former pupils, Piers and Lavinia Cholmondeley-Featherstonhaugh, were Central American.
I looked up the origin of the Paddy quote and it appears that it was by one P. Sellers extracting the ethnic Michael. Any complaints may be addressed to Golders Green Crematorium. However I wish to apologise unreservedly for his levity and mine.
