Thanks to 'Nick' for the PFI story. Basically there seems to be three rules of Private Finance Initiative (the modern clever way to build schools)
1) You don't get what you were promised.
2) It's made of cardboard.
3) Nobody takes the PFI company to task for not doing what they originally promised.
Anyway in Nick's school they've found bats nesting in the roof so no further work can take place as the building company risk a fine of up to £3000 for every bat death which can be shown to be down to their work. The Council have sent the 'Bat Lady' to compile a report. She stays overnight in the building and listens carefully for evidence of the little fellows and searches for bat droppings (I'd started laughing by now, too). My question is this:
If she does come across a bat poo or manage to record nocturnal bat noises, does she phone up the Council on the bat mobile?
Hope you have a nice Easter. No posts next week as I'm away.
