    In the wake of Home Secretary Amber Rudd's 'falling on her sword'/'carrying the can' to cover the sins of her boss, Prime Minister Theresa May (the author of a very aggressive anti-immigration/repatriation policy when serving as Home Secretary), the successor to the job is Sajid Javid.

    Mr Javid has plenty to feel chuffed about. The son of a Pakistani immigrant who came to the UK with £1 in his pocket.

    A boy genius at economics, he was put in for the advanced paper and passed with one of the best marks in the country. A vice president of Chase Manhattan at 25. A Thatcherite, joined the conservatives and is now Home Secretary.

    On his promotion to the role of Home Secretary, he turned to his wife and said, "Laura, did you ever imagine, in your wildest dreams, that one day I would actually be a Member of Parliament?"

    To which she replied: "Darling, in my wildest dreams, you don’t feature at all."

    (I think I'm in love, and I've never even seen the woman!)

    I think it would be civil rights. Either way the justices come down, it will be a decision that affects an individual’s rights.

    Wouldn’t fall in with what my colleague has been discussing, but I think it might be useful in its own thread on LGBTQ and Society.

    Some teachers may find this amusing (it's kinda political, which is why I'm posting it here.)

    My late mother would've been a bit amused herself because she was on the receiving end of this (one of her uncles was a teacher, and he would correct her letters to him [she stopped sending him letters after a certain amount of "bleeding letters" iykwim].)
