Taunton Academy @TauntonAcademy

As part of their preparation for English Language GCSE, Year 10 has been studying Derek Bentley, who was hanged for murder in 1953. They produced creative reactions to Elvis Costello’s song about the case, "Let Him Have It". This is Paige's beautifully illustrated analysis.

Haven't heard "Let HIm Have It" - is it a song dedicated to Liverpool's Karius and his generous donation of the European Champions League football to Benzema ? :wink:

Too much of a coincidence if he isn’t!


In further novels he has used 'tears before bedtime', 'less than zero' and stretching it a bit 'accidents happen' and 'punching his own clock'.

These things happen. Given that Joel runs this from his house I don't think we need to be seeking apologies.

I'm grateful for everything he does to keep us up and running.

Too right - as a collective, we owe him enormous respect and gratitude !
