And are markers allowed to have a bit of a moan or grumble? - Yes. Just like any other person. Just because someone has a moan about a system doesn't mean they don't want to do it. Perhaps class teachers who don't like book scrutinies should also not apply because they don't like aspects of the job - this is your argument. Are you also posting on other threads of people moaning telling them not to do the job because they applied for it - it's self inflicted? You make me laugh.
