Tim Loughton V Tory Education: Round 42

Big allegations.

UPDATE: Labour’s Ian Mearns has waded in:

“This extraordinary attack is another example of derogatory language by the Toryeducation twitter feed. Michael Gove needs to investigate if this feed is run by his advisers – if so that would be very serious. There is no place for these kind of personal attacks in public life. The Education Secretary needs to take action.”

      If we want to cut waste and improve education we have to make parents pay for education.

      This will

      1) Stop time wasters coming to schools as parents will see no point in wasting money.

      2) Parents and kids will demand good quality education as they are paying for it.

        But parents already do pay, it’s just that, by the time the overstuffed councils, pilgrims etc have deducted their expenses/costs, it’s a baldemort moment.

        What should happen is for parents to pay directly, then you get what you pay for as you suggest.

      The thing to remember is they’re all immigrants. Everyone is an immigrant, even if you think you come from England and are English, really you’re not because sometime maybe thousands of years ago your ancestor was brought to England. So you’re no different from someone who arrived from Bulgaria this morning. If you disagree you’re racist and I’ll set the wookie on you.

      Excellent, OJ. Didn’t think your sense of humour went beyond your jokey support for a long discredited political dogma.

      So what do I know, hey!

    Staggered that nobody on the TSC has asked about Osbo’s book-cooking £11bn “underspend” yet. Biggest flaw in the Budget.

    With opinion polls showing immigration – rightly or wrongly – the number one concern of voters, and with UKIP snapping at the heels of David Cameron, you can only imagine how damaging it would be if the fact were ever to come out that the prime minister has secretly agreed to a flood of cheap labour from India into the UK.
    Well, the fact is, he has.
    And that’s probably why he and his media friends have been keeping really really quiet about it.
    Here’s a question for you. What was the purpose of David Cameron’s recent trip to India?
    Bilateral trade you might well say. After all, that was how it was spun in the UK media.
    In India however, the truth is somewhat easier to find.
    The main purpose of the trip was actually to boost completion of the EU/India Free Trade Agreement.
    India’s sole demand in this agreement is that the EU allows Indian companies to supply cheap temporary labour into the EU – approximately 85% of which would be to the UK.
    The Coalition will argue in its defence that the UK now has an ‘immigration cap’.
    However, the government has excluded temporary workers from the cap and the trade agreement with India allows specifically for temporary workers to come to the UK.
    Temporary? How temporary? Well, the UK government has stipulated that ‘temporary’ can be as long as 9-10 years.
    Cameron may well also argue that the agreement only allows for ‘graduates’ or ‘students’ to work in the UK.
    But what he won’t tell you is that the ‘graduates’ and ‘students’ only need to be classed as that status in India. In the UK they could take any jobs from factory workers and care assistants to doctors, teachers and accountants.
    And finally the government will argue that there are restrictions on the numbers of certain kinds of workers who will be allowed into the UK.
    What they won’t tell you is that there are no restrictions on the overall number of Indian workers who will be allowed into the UK

    “There is no place for these kind of personal attacks in public life.”

    That, coming from the Labour of McBride and Watson, is laughable. Smearing and attacking their opponents is the very oxygen that Labour breathes. It is the one consistent policy they can be relied upon to deliver whether in government or in opposition. They are a party of smear and attack with the supporting logistics a long wagon train of lies, misrepresentations and dodgy data.

    “There is no place for these kind of personal attacks in public life”

    Unless they’re coming from a Leftie. We’re allowed to do it, because WE THINK CORRECTLY. You on the Right simply don’t, and you’re not allowed to criticise us.

    Rt. Hon. Michael Gove MP says:

    Well I’ve asked the chaps before and they say it’s not them. That’s good enough for me. If it makes you happy I’ll ask them again when they get back next month from their respective grandmothers’ funerals.
