Gollum, where are you my precious ...

There is a character in the national educational world one can best describe as Gollum, but without the charm or intellect. This Gollum is a tricky little beast, but has no particular substance, backbone or personality to speak of. In fact I know of more than one soul who has resisted the urge to give Gollum a very hard slap at some time or other.

Unfortunately Gollum is in a position to make a difference, but rather than own or lead, our friend instead wriggles behind whoever has more balls (man or woman alike). So far, what has been accomplished has been in spite of Gollums best efforts (or shall we say the lack of), but then Gollum does sometimes cling onto things that are better left alone.

The really amusing part is, whenever I meet or communicate with this soul, I cannot help but hear the voice of Andy Serkis in my mind.
