How to Get A Head - Governments of all shades seem to agree these days that schools are better run by the Head-teacher than by the County. On the basis that the County’s agenda may not be entirely devoted to the best education of our children, I would have to agree. However, sometimes the risks of placing too much power into the hands of one individual can be a disaster. A festering, often hidden disaster, which, like a boil waiting to burst, needs but one little prick.
This is a cautionary tale based upon one such Head-teacher; I shall call him Mr Michael, Mr Don Michael. He was a little man and power had gone to his head; it was swollen with the poison of self-importance, bordering on megalomania. I was nearer than most when the boil burst; in fact, I am content in the knowledge that some would say I was the prick that burst it...you can read the tale of How to Get a Head and other short stories at http://myBook.to/ShortFews2

When I say that he flew fixed-wing aircraft for this particular Police Authority, it would not take much research to work out where this story took place, but it is thirty years ago and Paul may be no more. The Authority’s name derived from three local rivers, the Ickle, the Test and the Itchen, but commonly it was known as The Itchen-Test-Ikle Force and had been asked by the Home Office to participate in the testing of an unusual British spotter aircraft. It was known as the Optica because its prominent cockpit was not unlike a bar’s optic unit. Apparently, it was a joy to fly, but it was tempting to fly near the stall and fall prey to making a slight turn without increasing power. Not unusually one wing would drop and immediate recovery procedures were needed. The problem was that as a police spotter aircraft it was often necessary to fly very low – perhaps as little as two hundred feet above a major road. When a wing dropped, there was no room to manoeuvre or time to recover and in she would go...you can read the tale of Pigs Might Fly and other short stories at http://myBook.to/ShortFews2
