I began a blog this morning, about Mary Metcalfe, Director General of Higher Education and Training, whose departure from her post was announced yesterday. Inadvertently, I posted it to the web whilst still unfinished and in draft form – some of you, who subscribe to this post, will have received it in error. I apologize.

I am writing about Mary, and what her departure means; but please bear with me for a few hours or so!
