From Mr Matt Foot

Sir: Judith Judd ("Low marks for teachers' Easter farce", 18 April) praises the NUT leadership for supporting "campaigns ... founded on a broad-based alliance of parents, governors and teachers". How strange it is, then, that this leadership refused to sponsor the recent Fight Against Cuts in Education demonstration of 20,000 in London on 25 March - a demonstration that was actively supported by the "fantasy world" militants in the Socialist Workers Party.

Yours sincerely,


London, NW6
