        There’s a baby in the luggage rack. Do babies go to school? No.

          That’s not a baby. It is a sad and accurate depiction of the lack of parenting skills in 2011. It is actually a 5 year old, who has not been weaned off its dummy yet.

          The cartoon is a reflection on how this Thursday’s selfish, unrealistic and pointless strike is going to hurt millions of families and the choices they will have to make to decide whether to take their kids to work with them, or take a day off from work to look after them.

          Many others will simply leave them at home with strict instructions to not answer the door or the phone.

            Does the head of the NUT lose pay on strike day and what are his pension arrangements looking like?

          • Grumpy Old Man says:

            Of Course the Head of the NUT doesn’t lose pay! Causing major disruption to the struggling UK economy is what he is expected to do! Oh and refusing to accept that graduate teachers need to be numerate and literate.

            The General Secretary of the NUT is a woman you plonkers

    Impartial Observer says:

    I guess this cartoon is about the forthcoming teachers strike on 30/06/2011

    For my husband and I this means yet another full long day with the grandchildren!

    I asked my husband if we could “run away” but he said no, we have to do our duty. Whatever happened to retirement? There are more grandparents at the school gates these days than parents. It wasn’t like that when I was at school.
    I’m just too hot and grumpy today. Bugger it all!

      Like you I am retired, no dustbin lids though or their offspring, I bet that you are greatfull that you have retired your off spring might have to work till they are 70 or older, the bods in power be they Con, Liebore or LimpDem do not realise that things do not work in quite the same way when you pass 60/65, things seem to take longer to do, time passes much quicker ( it’s not time it’s the individual that is slower) and worst of all you seem to get aches and pains for not particular reason

        I am glad that I had my retirement years when I was younger. I was fit enough to enjoy them. Now I am working my way to an early grave having already paid back what I took from the state in benefits.

        I would have hated to work to 67 or 70 and dropped dead just before retirement. My family history of heart disease means I probably won’t see the official retirement age. So I stayed unemployed through my 20s. I did a college course and other odd-jobs to keep busy, but I had a nice retirement.

          Nemo says:

          Yup, if you look around a cemetry its suprising how many have popped off just before or just after 65.

          • misterned says:

            My wife’s Grandpa worked his whole life from the age of 14 right up to when he retired from British Rail at the age of 65 and was dead within a week of retirement. I was damned sure that such a thing would not happen to me. My own father died at the young age of 47 (when I was 21) from a heart attack. So I chose to have a state funded retirement early and then work till I drop dead.

        Impartial Observer says:

        Hi Nemo, I am glad to be retired actually and I do indeed feel very sorry for the next generation because it looks as if they are going to have to work until they drop!
        The point you made about many people dying at or around 65years of age is a good point. All that pension money the Government have saved because of that fact, surely must go some way in terms of being able to pay the “lucky ones” who have made it past 65 years of age.

    If Government wanted to cover up the problem and save money it could have promoted it as a State sponsored parenting day.

    BBC News, The Guardian, Polly Toynbee says:

    The govt has been thrown into a major scandal as it’s believed Chris Shale was murdered after he embarrassed the govt with an embarrassing leak which led to his murder at Glastonbury where he was definitely murdered by the murderous govt. This is in stark contrast to the law abiding Labour govt which went out of its way to protect the dishonest Dr K e lly who cowardly committed suicide, unlike the murdered Mr Shale who was murdered by this murdering Tory govt. Murder.

    In the pantheon of utterly shit and unfunny cartoons, this one takes the crown. It makes Billy Connolly look funny. And that twat is about as funny as Bobby Davro, who’s about as funny as Lenny Henry, who’s about as funny as Dawn French.

    Voice of Treason says:

    Why worry about the teachers’ strike. Just treat it as they so often do – teachers’ training day. These are almost always held just after the idle bastards have had a six week’s holiday, then on their return they decide to close the school for a teachers’ training day. Fucking parasites.

    • 66
      Selohesra says:

      I wonder why the teachers didnt chose to go on strike in August?

      • 80
        p*ssed-off parent says:

        They could have chosen to strike during their six week summer holiday, two weeks at Easter, two weeks at Christmas, or three weeks of half terms. A grand total of 13 weeks holidays a year.
        Private sector workers who saw their pension arrangements changed a couple of years ago, who work longer than 8.45- 3.30 every day and only benefit from 4-5 weeks holiday, are unlikely to feel any sympathy.

          You you sound just like the person Gove is looking for, trying to teach 35 oiks who seem to have lost the will to learn, it only takes 1 or 2 to make it impossible.

      Eamonn U Ensis says:

      Like most professions you can do a lot or the bare minimum…I know friends who are teachers who go into school several times during the holidays to prepare for the new intake in September and who stay at school until 6pm to prepare lesson plans or take out of school activities…equaly there are some lazy bastards who bugger off at 3pm and do the bare minimum and who regard teaching as merely a job or a means to gain positions of power with union and politics

        Nemo says:

        “who bugger off at 3pm and do the bare minimum and who regard teaching as merely a job ”
        Do you mean they are just there for the beer, just like some members of parliament.

    Actually I thought it was one of their better efforts – chosing to go for general people rather than some one in particular avoided all the problem of not recognising the subject

Francis Elliot reports on No. 10 strategy meetings:

“When discussion veers to subjects that Mr Crosby thinks of concern only to the political and journalistic classes, he treats the offender as a pub bore with a tart request to “pass the beer nuts, mate”.”



Alexrod says:
