Mustn't stay too long as I have to prepare a lesson; however, well done on setting up this blog.

I had a run in with the British Council last year (in Prague). There I was, happily going about my business in a company setting- teaching fairly high level people- when in waltzed the British Council and nabbed most of the business. I have nothing against competition, and I should have been better informed by people who dealt with contracts, but the British Council is not a fair player because it's subsidised so heavily and can project a completely trustworthy image without the need for any justification.

I was as well qualified as anyone to do that job. I didn't in fact lose my job or that contract, but I suffered a loss.

Anyway, it's high time the public/private charade was exposed, so good luck.
