I knew he was called Edmund but I didn't know his surname.

I don't know who Jools is though, but what the hell.

Yeah it's a rejigged version of 'Is it 'cos one is Black, Sir?' using the latest stats. Hopefully should be doing more articles for Guardian Education in the next few months...
Well the article made a good piece of reading, how long does it actually take you to write such a piece? Oh, on a sidenote, what happened to your stalker '*MJG*' ?

I didn't for that one as it's a one-off. I only get expenses for BBC work too... not too bothered, not really in it for the money.

Journalism pay isn't great, it's 10-20p per word, and you're far from guaranteed daily publications unless you're bigtime.

Hmmmm, thats like about £30 (?) per article. How much expenses can you "rip" off the old BBC?
