I know PC Tedder can seem a little on the stupid side, but such stereotypes exist because there are a lot of examples of them in life! It suited AR to have such a copper, and it wasnt unrealistic to have an authority figure who failed to listen to children.

I love Mile's comment that, "You just want to shake him," as this reveals the mark of a great author: creating a character that can invoke such a strong emotion. I believe that when I experience a strong hatred for a book character, the author must have created something very believable.

(If you read Harry Potter you may notice this in the feelings you - or a child - have for Umbridge versus Voldemort!)
