I was the one who was sent out of Assembly by Mr Matthews for laughing whilst he was haranguing us all for coughing in Assembly (thanks to Barry Brennan for wisecracking in the row in front!).
It was the infamous occasion when after a few coughs on his arrival to take assembly on a cold morning he arrived at the podium, pulled himself up to his full 5' 2" and said 'There will be no further coughing in my assembly' (or words to that effect). Needless to say the following morning his entrance was greeted by a complete cacophony (or should I say cacoughony). Hence the harangue, hence the amusement, hence the expulsion from assembly hence (my only) six of the best from 'Spike'
