"It's new technology... There's no argument whether the tennis ball's in or out. Should have had it years ago." "When Benson-Pope was still a teacher?" 29 March, 2006.
Reference Number: DCDL-0001205
The scene is a tennis match. The umpire from his tall chair explains to a fan that the new technology means that there is no argument about whether the ball is in or out. The fan comments that it would have been useful for Benson-Pope. David Benson-Pope, Minister for the Environment, has been in trouble in recent months over an allegation that he stuffed a tennis ball into the mouth of a student when he was a teacher. The controversy has gone on for months but is now blessedly almost over with and David Benson-Pope retains his seat and can get on with his job.
