I liked Pinky because he was entertaining but no doubt his style was old-school, even back in the late '80s. He was tough as nails and could be cruel. But I truly think his heart was in the right place - even though he would deny he had one. If you made an effort, you were free to snicker at your classmates who he targeted. He worked hard and perhaps picked on some students. I'm not sure how my peers who were the targets feel about him now. That said, if you worked hard, you were safe.

everybody in my class thinks he is lame, but i think he is brill
he taught me geography for 3 years in the 90's (seems so long ago, and also, as if it was only yesterday!lol) i thought he was cool. if u worked hard and showed an interest, he helped you.funny jokes!
Pretty good teacher, even if he does support Leicester. But what's his obsession with pullovers?
