Refugee Week – Poets, Teachers, Students, Basil and the Bard.

Refugee Week runs from June 20th to June 26th. You can find links and lesson plans on www.irespect.net (for lesson plans on that site, go to, unsurprisingly, “lesson plans” and then click on “Untold Stories”). We also hope some poets might contribute some new material on this theme; we have some from previous years – I suspect that entering the words “refugee” or “asylum seeker” in the search box will let you know the type of material we have so far.
As regards your thoughtful question, Casey, as to the teams supported by Basil and the Bard, I am sure you have read “Diary of a Nobody” and also listened to the Small Faces’ “All or Nothing”. This vaguely reflects their position – but when push comes to shove, I know that both look for Swindon’s score first and Forest Green’s second. All the best and thanks for all your contributions, Stuart.
