with all the hype about this group of people in the uk press, and the amount of day-to-day bullshit these people have to face in their lives, would it be an odd thing to say…..erm, we all have quite a laugh a lot of the time?
obviously there are ups and downs on both side but basically i like my job.
the worst time was when the iraq war kicked off. many of my students are muslims. it was hard going in and facing them. there was so much pain around. it was hard to be strong and deal with it.
i bought a ub40 cd lately, believe it or not. one of the songs says what i felt and still do feel sometimes:
i’m a british subject, not proud of it, while i carry the burden of shame.
