Are You Serious?

September 12, 2011

‘Our cities have been set ablaze and our dignity trampled upon by the worst attack on Britain since the Second World War. But these were not outsiders who declared war on us.’

Which subject did Katherine Birbalsingh teach?  It wasn’t history, that’s for sure.

Ms Birbalsingh is a passionate advocate of the English Baccalaureate (EBac.). We used to have a perfectly adequate set of exams for secondary school leavers. They were called O’levels. Now, which party was in power when they were abolished? Answers on a post card please.

I was wondering when they would get around to this:

Worth the license fee ten times over and almost makes up for the Jonathan Ross debacle.

This is what Our Esteemed Leader has to say: ”We all do stupid things when we are young’.

Indeed. I couldn’t agree more. One thing I didn’t do though was regard smashing up expensive restaurants as a rite of passage.

I’ve no doubt we’ll soon get a missive from The Greatest Doctor In The Entire Universe explaining why there is no moral equivalence between lower class feral brats rioting and upper class feral brats rioting.

Addendum: Criminal damage is criminal damage. And it’s against the law. Could members of the Bullingdon Club still be prosecuted for their actions?

Now that would be interesting.

We have an ageing population. This means that it has become fashionable to hate the young.
