“About three weeks into it all I went up to the headteacher and said, ‘sir, you know what’s going to happen and the time has come, we’re going to have to leave on March 4. Unfortunately because everything’s up in the air the kids are going to be gone about three weeks’.
“He said, ‘wow, you can’t get three weeks off, I won’t confirm it’.
“I said there’s nothing you can do about it, I have got to take the kids. We have never been apart.
“We went, we came back and I received a notice from the council that we were fined.”Well, you can't say you weren't warned...
Craig, who is disabled because of a spinal injury, said it was important he travelled with his family because his wife, Nicola, 33, is his carer.Bet he 'can't work'. But can go lay down the law to the head & travel...
He added: “The headteacher said the kids should have just gone to Jamaica for one week and your wife should have come back with the kids and left me there.
“I said how can I come back home? I’m vulnerable.”Really?
“I paid the fine but I just think it’s not fair because it’s not humane, it can’t be human to think like that, to think that somebody’s family does not matter.”Like your kids' education & the rules everyone else has to follow don't matter, you mean?
