So, on Monday, my PGCE course begins. We have been told "representatives of the teaching unions will be there." Any thoughts which if any would be a good one to join? I am clearly very keen to ensure none of my money ends up with the Labour party, for sure, but I am not completely against joining a union.

Any union member can opt out of the union's political fund.

I can't believe my union is the only one that has a heated debate, every year, at national conference over Labour party affiliation. If you want your union disaffiliated, get active and get its policy changed. Unions are more democratic than almost any other UK institution.

A boring looking chart? Just look at the image URL - it's actually an auto-generated image from Google's chart API. It's awesome that I can use this to make simple charts in any web-application.
