Sir: What a novel idea suggested by Yvette Cooper ("Marx comes back - in an anorak", 23 October) - "All those Socialist Worker Party members who stand on street corners shouting in nasal tones should give up and become teachers instead".

Many of those members who spend their day off promoting social change are, in fact, teachers. Could this have any connection with their experiences at work where, for the last 17 years, they have witnessed the life-blood being sucked out of our state education system by lack of funding, status and morale?
