A few days ago I gave you a fact about the first meeting of the British Shakespeare Association. While there David spoke to a reporter from TES magazine. TES stands for Teaching Every Student and they are the largest network of teachers in the world, you can check out their website here.

This little exchange is proof that David's political convictions have been with him a long time!

"Chatting to one of our reporters at the inaugural conference of the British Shakespeare Association about the sorry status of the bard in schools, Tennant wondered whose responsibility it was to turn things around.

"Who's the minister? Estelle Morris?"

On being informed Charles Clarke was now in charge in England, his face fell and, summoning the best eloquence he could muster from his native West Lothian, he exclaimed: "Oh well, we're fucked in that case." " - September 19, 2003
