    Oh I know that to be the case. One instance is when a teacher turns 40 and deemed too expensive.

    The NHS isn't really an aspect of socialism. We have very few nationalised industries in this country (thank heavens). NHS just happens to be a social service provided by the taxpayers, like education, district services, etc and a necessary one at that.

    But I wouldn't want to bet my last pound that that there are many good headteachers in this country.

    Umm, I don't think it started under Gove. The corrupt academy saga actually started under Major, then went into full force under Labour.

    Corrupted Tory thinking. The NHS is an epitome of socialism.
