ABSTRACT
IN trying to get Scotland's teachers to accept changes to their pensions, SNP Education Secretary Mike Russell is playing with fire. It's not striking teachers that bother him, it's fear of the wife. 'I declare an interest,' he told the parliament's education committee. 'Although she will not thank me for saying so, my wife is a prospective pensioner with the Scottish Public Pensions Agency, and she is a head teacher.' Still, if he makes her work until 68, he'll at least have the house to himself.
