Teacher’s Union leader Kevin Courtney joins Beard of Spring poll

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that with the National Union of Teachers conference due to open in Cardiff on Friday, General Secretary Kevin Courtney has been added to the Beard of Spring poll.

Mr Courtney was recently central to recent merger discussions with the ATL union which will see the formation of the NEU, National Education Union.

The on-line poll is now open and the winner will be revealed on Easter Sunday.

The campaigners say the Beard of Spring is not about beard style or length but about the impact the beard wearer has made in the public eye.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, there is no question that Kevin Courtney has considerable beard power and the impact in the discussions to former the NEU has clearly been considerable.
