Is That @ToryEducation In Gove’s Pocket?


  1. 1
    Toxic Labour for spongers, parasites and losers says:

    No idea!

  2. 2
    A dose of rigour says:

    I like Hunt, he’s an ally of Gove as they take on the staff room whingers.

    But I fear Tristram will be forced to tow the Labour line and support Labour’s producer interests.

  3. 3
    BBC maybe says:

    And its Hunt the ….

    Shirley Williams says:

    The theory behind the comprehensive schooling system is that Jonny Swot will inspire Biffer Bacon to raise his academic standards.
    In practice though we seem to have produced more Biffers than Swots.

    Tristram Hunt(Prime Minister Designate) says:

    I will be Prime Minister after the 2015 General Erection

    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Ecoloons says:

    Had enough of the LibLabCon traitors and their mates in the Mainstream media?

    Are you a patriot and want your country back?

    1. Stop paying the telly tax.

    2. Stop buying the lying rags laughably calling themselves newspapers.

    3. Vote UKIP at every opportunity.

    Remember vote early,vote often,vote UKIP :-)

    Fishy says:

    Who was the plonker at PMQs who criticised the Tories for destroying the coal industry.

    Hasn’t anyone told him that Green Ed saw to it that the country doesn’t use coal anymore

  9. 9
    Fishy says:

    Give it a rest Nigel, where would you be if it wasn’t for your EU gravy train?

  10. 10
    Reader says:

    Crap post, Guido. An obscure, unclear photo and a vague, meaningless bit of text to go with it.

    Worthy of twitter maybe, not really worthy of this blog.

  11. 11
    The LibLabCon are an illegitimate political force says:

    You have a point. Perhaps a Larry the cat story next to lift the boredom ?

  12. 12
    No one is allowed to be loser BUT the truth is they ARE losers and always will be says:

    The reason is simple…they aim for the lowest common denominator and thereby standards fall as they have done for 40 years

  13. 13
    I d on't need no doctor says:

    Hunt is obsessed with himself, much like the rest of the labours front bench.

  14. 14
    The BBC imagine they are far more intelligent than 8 year old children says:

    How very, very witty and not entirely childishly predictable, the lefty loving BBC are.

  15. 15
    Prime Minister Mohammed Cameron says:

    This is the first time that the World Islamic Economic Forum has ever been held outside the Islamic world.

    Already London is the biggest centre for Islamic finance outside the Islamic world. But today our ambition is to go further still. I want London to stand alongside Dubai and Kuala Lumpur as one of the great capitals of Islamic finance anywhere in the world.

    My argument today is very simple: investing in London is good for you and opening London up to your investment is good for us.

    Ernst and Young now say Britain is the best place in the world for new entrepreneurs. Today the World Bank has recognised that we have improved access to credit, improved protection for investors, simplified the tax burden and made it easier and faster to register property.

    And we are already taking big steps to open up the City of London to more Islamic finance. Today we have more banks compliant with the principles of Islamic finance than any other Western country. We have over 25 law firms supplying services in Islamic finance and 16 universities or business schools offering MBAs or similar qualifications in Islamic finance, including the new programme for senior executives announced by Cambridge University last week. No-where else in the world offers the same depth and breadth of education and qualifications in Islamic finance. Just last week we made new commitments to open up new forms of student loans and business start-up loans for Islamic students and entrepreneurs.

    Don't go on strike when the country has stockpiles of coal at the power stations says:

    The myth is that Thatcher single-handedly destroyed the Coal Industry but the truth is of course that the NUM mishandled the strike and played into her hands

  17. 17
    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Ecoloons says:

    It’s all over for the ConDems, with skyrocketing energy bills tipping millions into fuel poverty and hordes of Romas flooding the country, driving down wages and driving up rents, they will be swept away in the great electoral storm of 7th May 2015.

    Tick tock, tick tock.

    Vote early,vote often,vote UKIP :-)

    Dandy says:

    What is so wrong with a few modern coal powered stations for the next 30/40 years?

    They are relatively cheap to build run and decommission and the Green People can go round perfecting their windmills and turbines in the interim.

    Reality Check says:

    In Miliband’s Labour Party the unions ultimately call the shots on policy…

  20. 20
    The 'progressive' solution: Failure says:

    The left were responsible for the policy of dispersing people from so called ‘sink estates’ into the wider community, in the hope that by being around people who worked for a living, would inspire them to imitate the socially responsible.

    All it did was provide the feckless and criminal from these estates, with far more burglary and mugging opportunities.

    No good boyo says:

    Would you say no to a hand job for £2.50?

  22. 22
    What a plonker. says:

    Vote UKIP and get Red Ed Miliband and Ed economic genius Balls.

  23. 23
    Explaining Labour's education policy, Ed Balls says:

    Schools must not produce winners.

  24. 24
    Ed Milhouse says:

    Ha ha ! I won..I was better at making up stuff than Dave.
    Did you see me on the telly, Len? I was good wasn’t I..Wasn’t I! I was..
    I was well good.

    Say I was really good, Len..please.

    Not now vicar

    Tory Party RIP - killed by Camoron says:

    Vote for Dave’s Conservative Party and get record levels of immigration, record levels of national debt, record sums of money frittered away on foreign aid to countries with space programmes and nuclear arsenals, record sums of money donated to the utterly corrupt EU, and press censorship.

    And a £50bn railway line that no-one wants.

  27. 27
    The 'progressive' solution: Failure says:

    Aww bless, Fishy getting twitchy? Roll on the EUro elections, you’ll find out how much wuv the people feel towards Dave’s socialist torwee party then.

  28. 28
    Tony Benn says:

    I closed far more coal mines than Maggie. But luckily, I’m a socialsist, so nobody brings that up.

    Narcissism from a posh leftie?

    Quelle surprise!

    Tory Party RIP - killed by Camoron says:

    “This is the first time that the World Islamic Economic Forum has ever been held outside the Islamic world.”

    I think you got that slightly wrong – Londonistan is part of the Islamic world. It even has Saudi-style religious police roaming the streets, ‘disciplining’ anyone who isn’t abiding by Sharia’s diktats on appearance and consumption of booze.

    Camoron, of course, said he’d do something about all this. That was 7 years ago. Thus far, do-nothing Dave’s done.. nothing, other than trying to turn Londonistan into a global hub for Islamic banking.

    Taxpayer says:

    As long as he abolishes them in their entirety.

  33. 33
    Dave Cameron says:

    I didn’t want to introduce lots of green taxes. Nasty big-boy Liberal Democrats made me do it.

    A flock of pigs flying across the sky says:

    It’ll be a cold day in Hell when that happens.

    I Remember You Hoo says:

    Nothing at all wrong with coal power, it’s cheap plentiful and reliable.

    India and China are building 1,200 new coal fired power stations between them over the next 10 years.

    As for the windmills and solar panels, they are expensive, unreliable, dead end technologies.

  37. 37
    scargill's mate says:

    you certainly did

  38. 38
    Sympathy vote says:

    Can we persuade some of these Indian immigs to build a few for us? Otherwise they will just sit around shivering and collecting their bennies.

    A Maimed Badger says:

    Under Labour oppression, teachers were merely robots reading from an Instruction book where they had the answers printed & the students did not.The truth is many dedicated Teachers have left the Profession because of simply becoming a number & ceasing to be an individual.
    I have met few who were or are in it for the money and most see it as a Vocation, considering the challenges facing Schooling in Modern Britain, they as a group have been let down by Government, there has been no Legislation on the Children of Immigrants having to learn English before starting School, if our Language is not spoken at home, then these children live in isolation and Teachers are expected to pick up the Pieces and cope… this very obvious fact is affecting Britain and our World Standings in the Education League, other Countries do not have this hindrance on such a scale, it needs to be addressed with legislation.
    In the past Immigrants have been absorbed into the system and although maintaining their Identity, have merged into Main Stream Britain, Religion and Religious Values has changed that with the sheer volume of diverse interests and cultures overwhelming Schools without any consideration of a System never designed to cope with such an Influx, being uprated or modernized with these factors being taken into account..

    Sympathy vote says:

    Another BCCI in the offing? that should be fun what with the Scotch idiot’s light regulation.

  41. 41
    I Remember You Hoo says:

    Correct, the green tarriff and subsidies are all part of EU energy directives and emmissions targets. Cameron can do nothing about them as long as we remain in the EU.

    If you imagine Cameron would ever leave the EU, you need your head testing.

  42. 42
    2 + 2 = 6 says:

    Well, now they can all apply for jobs at the free schools then can’t they?

  43. 43
    Head Tester says:

    So many heads so little time.

  44. 44
    Anonymous says:

    So how long before we have Sharia Law imposed on us?

  45. 45
    I Remember You Hoo says:

    Dave you have a memory block, let me help you out here.

    Labour, the Lib-Dem’s and your ‘conservative’ party, including you, all voted FOR Marxist Miliband’s, Climate Change Act.

    Which either makes you a fool, or a fellow traveller.

  46. 46
    Ichabod says:

    And dont forget the sharia friendly bond initiative…

    Or both.

    If you live in Tower Hamlets it’s there already.

    Calidius Eroticus says:

    Are you suggesting that Nigel Farage isn’t actually keen on us leaving the EU?

  52. 52
    Calidius Eroticus says:

    The left hate free schools because they cannot control what the kids get taught. If they cannot control them, they cannot indoctrinate them with their agenda. One example being my stepdaughter who came home from school and declared that the world was going to boil because of global warming. She knew it must be true because they taught it at school!

    Therefore I would think there will be many teachers leaving to teach at free schools, they just won’t be so free anymore, they will again be lefty run Labour approved schools, just with a veneer of freedom.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
