Have You Seen This Man?


  1. 1
    Bill says:

    Send the bugger back.

  2. 2
    nell says:

    Let’s face it the UK border agency couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag. I suspect mr arniegraf is being hosted in the luxury home of one lenmcclusky so is quite safe. They’ll never dare go looking for him there.

  3. 3

    Bet he gets a Free Bus Pass.

  4. 4
    Podiceps says:

    They’d really hate to find him. Think of the fuss it would cause.

  5. 5
    nell says:

    Not at all – I hope he stays and keeps spinning the labour poll lead ever lower until 2015. If at that point labour come to grief at the hands of the electorate the British People may wish to give him a hefty bonus as a thank you for saving us from a fate worse than death.

  6. 6
    Sunderland is a Labour ghetto thats why its shyte. says:

    Lets see if the Border Agency can find the hundreds of Syrian refugees due here shortly when their supposed temporary visa run out,by the way who is going to house,clothe and feed these people who hate the West oops its us the taxpayer.

  7. 7
    UK Boring Agency says:

    You’re nicked sunshine.

  8. 8
  9. 9
    nell says:

    Well you’re nearly right. The border agency nicking anyone is rarer than sunshine in the uk these days. Hens teeth come to mind.

  10. 10
    nell says:

    Think of the work it would cause them. Far too much trouble.

  11. 11
    Democrat in USA != Labour in the UK says:

    Arnies natural home in the UK would be UKIP.

    What on earth would he want with the multi-millionaires in the Labour party?

  12. 12
    Jack Ketch says:

    On the TV show flighted on Pick TV, the UKBA officers, wrapped in flak jackets and shod in enormous boots, bust their way into squalid sheds in Slough and Leicester using pneumatic battering rams and then warn the assembled Vietnamese, Kurds, Kashmiris, Central African Republicanese and Somalis to pop round to the nearest immigration office when they have time.
    Maybe this anti-British, subversive, ne’er-do-well could be given the same courtesy.

  13. 13
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    He’s changed his name to Grift, and was last seen hiding in Ed Miliband’s closet.

  14. 14

    I have this mental image of Len McCluskey having an outside toilet. Probably matches his Luddite approach.

    Silly me! Come to think of it, I know he has!

    It’s called Unite.

  15. 15
    Pass the dafty on the lefty side says:

    “Obama’s high school pot dealer who he thanked for the ‘good times’ was beaten to death with a hammer by his gay lover after fights over flatulence and drugs”

    Now that’s what I call a headline

  16. 16
    Vazoline says:

    I sincerely hope you’re not talking about me.

  17. 17
    Psyche the Dog says:

    No I have not seen him at all, ask Dave, he maybe in Londonistan, if you want to disappear Londonistan is the place to go, some borughs charge half their population every year so nobody knows anyone else, or wants to know.

  18. 18
    Tony Blair says:

    Greed. It is very disinhibiting.

  19. 19
    Psyche the Dog says:

    You could try Earl’s Court, little Aussie land

  20. 20
    My Wedgewood China cups and saucers .... one set to love says:

    Is he related to Steffi?

  21. 21
    Feel the enrichment says:

    And a sex change on the NHS

  22. 22
    Floodwater in Bedroom in Summerset says:

    ‘Sunshine’ you say. Tell me about it.

  23. 23
    UKBA is riddled with corruption says:

    Serves them right for not paying the usual bung

  24. 24
    f67 says:

    NO, his “natural” home would be the racist colony called “Israel”.

  25. 25
    Psyche the Dog says:

    It sounds a little like the coppers, “Now then sir could tell me who did it?” Why don’t they get Scotland Yard to ask one of their narks, he would be found within the day.

  26. 26
    RomaBob.... Buy Beeg Issue! says:

    How many health tourists do we have in the UK?

    How many foreigners languishing in prison? Just bear in mind they arrive here with a clean record…. ooman rights are paramount.

    Send the f*ckers back….. we Romas have all the rights……. as well and many 1000s of Syrians :)

  27. 27
    Anonymous says:

    No thank goodness

  28. 28
    Psyche the Dog says:

    A sex change at his age? Would have thought the need for that would not would not needed now.

    Another Pub Bore says:

    Ha ha ha, classic. Let me buy you a pint of Old Vicars Foreskin and you can tell us some more of your witty quips.

    cep says:

    Yanks are all in South Kensington…..

  31. 31
    Mornington Crescent says:

    Global Business Coalition for Education, the charity founded by Sarah Brown, is registered in ‘the Cayman Islands of North America':


    As one commentator perceptively writes: “Why if it is a charity would it need to be in a tax haven?”

  32. 32
    Psyche the Dog says:

    Fawkes might be hiding him so that he can get a scoop about Liebore, and a pat on the head from Rupe and promoted to political editor for the Sun.

  33. 33
    Ed Balls says:

    Plan B

  34. 34
    Psyche the Dog says:

    “How many health tourists do we have in the UK? ” probably quite a few from the USA

  35. 35


    When they cut away yours, they threw away the wrong bit.

  36. 36
    Niall Eastick-Tendencies says:

    To check this man’s identity, he’s got 666 tattooed on his head.

  37. 37
    Psyche the Dog says:

    And Grovesnor Square, didn’t see the US bit, sorry grovel,grovel

  38. 38
    Psyche the Dog says:

    Who’s she? I don’t know her

  39. 39
    JMF says:

    Who is a silly little boy f67

  40. 40
    Psyche the Dog says:

    I didn’t know that they circumcised cats!

  41. 41
    So much for Tories never being on the bbc says:

    Eric Pickles is on The One Show shortly.

  42. 42
    Michael Gove says:

    We would like our school kids to do a mandatory A-Level on EU integration and its benefits.

  43. 43
    nell says:

    Somerset floods all down to an incompetent leftwing environment agency more interested in chucking money at green agenda thingies like flodding land than saving peoples homes. Very labour!

  44. 44
  45. 45
    Labour and the unions says:

    Channel 4 News has a debate coming up between different ranks in the Labour party over unions. Labour denying that they’re owned by the unions is always amusing.

  46. 46
    Genghiz the kahn says:

    They might change their minds about being health tourists if they are sent to Staffordshire NHS Hospitals.

  47. 47
    nell says:

    Not Gove – that’s a very balls ‘every child educated to lowest denominator possible’ agenda!!!

  48. 48
    Indolence Watch says:

    Fatly, surely.

  49. 49
    nell says:

    There’s a labour political broadcast airing tonight. Anybody watching? No thought not.

  50. 50
    Mark Oaten says:

    Did someone mention racing things up colons?

  51. 51

    Flatulence to a gay lover must be about as useless as a PhD thesis entitled The Labour Party and Political Change in Scotland 1918–29 to a British prime minister.

  52. 52
    nell says:

    Labour = not owned by the working classes either.

    What seems to be clear is that they are mostly owned by primrose hill millionaires + the kinnochio millionaires of wales and chuckusyamoney whose millions are salted away abroad somewhere plus a fancy palace in spain.

  53. 53

    Will have you know that I have circumcised the world.

  54. 54
    Arnie says:

    Fuck you, asshole! I’ll be back.

  55. 55
    Ric Holden CCHQ says:

    BRIEFING: everything you need to know about the 50p tax rate http://classonline.org.uk/blog/item/briefing-the-50p-tax-rate

  56. 56
    Ed Balls says:

    How soon people forget. We gave up on trying to educate every child to any level – we left hundred of children without primary school places in East London because we’d invited the Poles to come in and pack out the schools.

  57. 57
    nell says:

    What’s really worrying about that SC is that that PM and his wife are now swanning about the world on their tax free charity status earning £100K’s each year pretending to know something about economic competence!

    They remind me very much of the snake oil conmen of wild west fame.

  58. 58
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    Guido as Pol Ed for the Sun ? That is a good idea, but after the next election.

    If he would be interested in the role.

    He has certainly done enough leg work to be a rider, rather than runner.

  59. 59
    nell says:

    Dear Mr arniegraf Please don’t go – stay – the tory party needs you to keep spinning for labour

  60. 60
    nell says:

    I suspect circumcising cats , like inspecting folks fridges, will be one of labour’s main policies when militwit gets around to writing on that blank sheet of paper.

  61. 61
    Táxpáyér says:

    f67 sounds like a lib-dum.

  62. 62
    Village Idiot says:

    ………It was weak,weak,weak;pathetic,londonistan central,absolute shocker…I regret seeing it!….Disturbing,definately not a vote catcher!

  63. 63
    nell says:

    I think expecting labour to become vote catchers in this rather dire phase of their political career is like expecting francoise hollande to become an economic genius.

  64. 64
    Red Alert says:

    Labour are a rogue employer who break immigration and tax laws when it suits them.

  65. 65
    Sir Bernard Haagen-Daas says:

    He was on the Labour front row today disguised as Angela Eagle.

  66. 66

    Baroness Scotland says:

    I have no idea why you could think something like that

  68. 68
    Pschye the Dog says:

    You mean they don’t do work?

  69. 69
    Nick Clegg says:

    In case any other Lib Dems are revealed to be perverts, I’d just like to state right now that I didn’t know anything about the allegations until 4 weeks from now and that I took immediate action to suspend the person 2 years from now. Vote Lib Dem.

  70. 70
    Sir William Wayde says:

    Steffi Schwarzenegger?

  71. 71
    White rabbit says:

    Does anyone understand what the fuck Alex Salmond is talking about.

  72. 72

    THEN send the bugger back.

  73. 73
    Pschye the Dog says:

    Mind you, he seems to have a fuller head of head than Gideon

  74. 74
    White rabbit says:


  75. 75
    Castrated Man says:

    Oh yes – ‘circumcised’ – THAT’S the word I was groping for!

  76. 76
    Pschye the Dog says:

    Or Dave

  77. 77
    Pschye the Dog says:

    And run by the Cons?

    Muslims go fuck yourselves, you dirty fucking bearded, raghead, terrorist cunts says:

    I’m so sick of these fucking bearded muslim c-unts popping up every day to screech about the latest thing to offend him. We need a majority Tory government with a new leader who will finally sort out the muslim problem plaguing Britain. It’s Labour’s legacy and Cameron has done fuck all to fix it. These scum need to be put in their place, preferably in a seat on a one way flight to some shitty third world muzee shithole. Allahu shatbar.

  80. 80
    cep says:

    Is that with the head of Steffi and the body of Arnie or vice-versa..?

  81. 81
    McAdder says:

    No, and especially Alec Salmond.

  82. 82
    Pschye the Dog says:

    Surely you mean Mr Blobby, he carn’t get any bigger can he.

  83. 83
    Popcorn says:

    Studio debate in a moment on Channel 4 News about Labour and the unions.

  84. 84
    Ed the Eunuch says:

    He may be hanging out in an old folks home.

  85. 85

    Alex Salmond doesn’t understand what the fuck Alex Salmond’s talking about. The rest of us have no chance.

  86. 86
    i don't n eed no doctor says:

    I saw that bloke in the picture. I was listening in on a conversation he was having with two strange blokes. He told one that he would never become Prime Minister while he had an hole up his arse, and he told the other bloke he hadn’t got a clue about financial affairs. Both blokes were called Ed, strange that.

  87. 87
    cep says:

    Got to be better than Tom Newton-Dunn.

    Bring back Kavanagh.

    Sure that’s not just a staff meeting?

  89. 89
    Popcorn says:

    Fat Abbott is on debating with Alan Johnson. She opposes one member one vote and wants unions to keep their power. :-D

  90. 90
    bingo says:

    I have just watched the Labour party political broadcast

    my dog farted

    I turned over

    milliband is so piss boring he doesn’t even upset me

    At least i can shout wanker at the tv when balls is spouting shite

  91. 91
    i don't n eed no doctor says:

    Salmond and Ed Balls have a lot in common, they both deny what they have said.

  92. 92
    McAdder says:

    Laura K ( I can’t spell Kuenssberg) to get £200k salary for being chief correspondent on news night. No doubt she will be giving the Tories a hard time on tax cuts for millionaires.

  93. 93
    i don't n eed no doctor says:

    Both dumbheads.

  94. 94
    Popcorn says:

    That really did make me LOL.

  95. 95
    Popcorn says:

    Even though I don’t like Alan Johnson, it was rather enjoyable watching him shout and ridicule Fat Abbott.

  96. 96

    Indeed, they seemed rather quaint and gentlemanly by comparison.

    This man confiscated the nation’s savings and pensions, flogged off the gold at the lowest price possible and then ran up a debt that a drunkard at Monte Carlo Casino could only dream of, not in his name of course but in ours.

    All the while he had the temerity to call it investment. The abolition of boom and bust. Prudence.

    The biggest heist in history. And what for? So he can earn a (comparatively) miserable million or so a year. If we had all clubbed in, we could have each paid 50p a year and told him to f*** off!

  97. 97
    I'm not making this up says:

    This weekend is the BAM festival: Being A Man. Speakers will be discussing what it means to be a man in the modern age. The speakers over the weekend include, I shit you not, Billy Bragg and Alastair Campbell. Surely it should therefore be called Being A Crappy Singer and Hypocrite Who Lives in a Rich Upper Class Area and Being A Bullying, Evil War Criminal C-unt.

    If Cameron wants to reduce to 40% then he had better be quick about it!!
    After losing the next election Dave will be cast into the dustbin of history.He will not even be asked to appear on You’ve Been Framed. Unless that is as a character witness For Andy Coulson or Rebekah Brookes.

    You rate Campbell too highly.

  102. 102
    The British media are cunts says:

    You have to admire the Balls of the SNP, they want independence but also want the English to underwrite it.

    The Scots tell us that we English should underwrite their spending because we need free access to their market. Well not that Scotland is worth much but we get that by the jocks being part of the E which Salmond wants to maintain.

    What I find amusing is how the English media continue to hand out verbal blow jobs to Salmond.

  103. 103
    Mornington Crescent says:

    A UKIP/BeeEnPee coalition should do the trick :-)

    Saw him recently on the box and he was looking very frayed around the edges.
    Don’t know how old he is..50ish… but I reckon time is catching up with him.

  110. 110
    We are the losers says:

    Cyprus and Malta were once part of the sterling area so why not Scotland as a separate country after all they have half of our debt to pay back, besides I’d rather Scotland go on their own and help destroy Liebour and the UK membership of the EU, two hits for a bit of printed money lets go for it.

  111. 111
    Miss Fanny Batter, aged 89 from East Horsley in Surrey says:

    It’s staggering that the government (the real one in London, not the pretend one in Jockland) agreed to underwrite Jockland’s loans.

    And how did a stupid fat c*nt like Salmond get to become pretend PM of the pretend country of Jockland anway? Seriously, you wouldn’t by a used car from the sad fat old c*nt, would you? No, you wouldn’t. Because he’s obviously a mendacious c*nt. So why put him in charge of your pretend parliament?

    And another thing (continues for 10 minute rant)

  112. 112
    i don't n eed no doctor says:

    There are two things I wish for, apart from winning the National Lottery, firstly that the economy gets even better before the 2015 election, and secondly that Ed Balls loses his seat at that election.

  113. 113
    i don't n eed no doctor says:

    In regard to Hollande destroying France and suppressing its people history again repeats

    The battle for France is now over…. The battle for Britain is about to begin.

    Damn..that’s why then.

  118. 118
    Miss Fanny Batter, aged 89 from East Horsley in Surrey says:

    Good. That lying bastard killed hundreds of thousands. I hope he wakes each night hearing their screams.

    How does he get to appear on TV? Who in their right f*cking mind thinks, “hey, let’s get the lying mass-murderer Aly Campbell on our show!”

    “Let’s see if we can go 20 minutes without mentioning he’s a liar and his lies killed hundreds of thousands of men, women and children. Yeah, that’s great TV!”

    No. It. F*cking. Isn’t. He’s a war criminal. He’s one of the most despicable people ever to have walked this Earth. Josef Mengele didn’t kill and maim a tenth as many people as Aly Campbell killed and maimed.

    And he’s advising Milimong now, isn’t he? FFS!

    One Nation Socialism. Sieg fucking Heil.

  119. 119
    England says:

    Because we just don’t want them.

    When is it going to get through to Alex Salmond’s thick skull that he is not needed by anyone South of the Border?

    He either wins the referendum and finds himself with a properly independent country to run or he fucks off and goes and live with the rest of the Scottish ueber-patriots in some Caribbean tax haven with whatever dosh he has managed to salt away in his dodgy little career. There is no devo-max on offer.

    just trying to help says:

    When Scotland is independent it would be naive to expect the first 5/10 years to be problem free.

    However over a generation or two with a truly independent Banking system Scotland would prosper exponentially and any trade deficits would be dealt with by currency exchange rates.

    The future is more exciting and challenging if Scots go it alone.

    if Scotland succeeds the English won’t get any of it.

  124. 124
    Ed Balls says:

    Agreed. And let me fire the opening salvo in the new Battle of Britain!

    I am proud of the last Labour government’s spending. But, if there was one mistake, we did not spend enough. Next time, we will spend more. If you think the last Labour government was shit beyond belief, if you couldn’t believe how much damage we did, just grab hold of your seats, folks, because next time it will be worse. That is my promise. I’m going to screw all of you. Each and every one. Damn you all. Damn you all to Hell!

    Vote Labour.

    Right, Righties, match that!

    The Public says:

    Johnson is marxist. The former Secretary of State for Productivity, Energy and Industry is a complete tool.

    When health Secretary he preferred people to die rather than undermine the sacred cow of the NHS. He criticised breast cancer patient Debbie Hirst because she attempted to buy the cancer drug Avastin, which the NHS had denied her. Johnson told Parliament, patients “cannot, in one episode of treatment, be treated on the NHS and then allowed, as part of the same episode and the same treatment, to pay money for more drugs. That way lies the end of the founding principles of the NHS.” Twat.

    Bilda Berger says:


    “A scrounger…almost died after cutting his own foot off so he could stay on jobless benefits… Long term unemployed Hans Url, 56, had just been told his hand-outs would stop if he did not accept work found for him by job centre staff. And when his claims that he was too sick and did not like the work were challenged with the offer of a medical, he took drastic measures. …Url, of Mitterlabill, southern Austria, rigged up a mitre saw and sliced off his foot – then put it in the oven for good measure to ensure no surgeon could reattach it.”

    McAdder says:

    That wouldn’t get rid of Balls. Either some old-timer would step aside for him in a safe seat, or he would head some think tank as an expert (sic), or he would be made Lard Balls.

    It's all Fachaz fault! says:

    Highlight of today’s PMQs was Lisa Nandos demanding an apology from Mrs Thatcher. That’s basically what her question amounted to. It’s a running gag that Labour supporters still like to blame Mrs Thatcher for everything, but she actually put that into action with her question today. Is she aware of how ridiculous she looked? The huge groan from government benches underlined how absurd it was for her in 2014 to demand an apology for what she alleges Mrs Thatcher did 30 years ago.

    M. Salmond's alter ego. says:

    “If Scotland succeeds” and “”Scotland would prosper exponentially”.

    Ok, here are some facts:-

    1] The really bright Scots pissed off to London to make real money years ago. The only people that stayed behind were the kind of morons that believed in Scottish independence.

    2] Alex Salmond keeps saying that Scotland will be better off but exactly how. What clever plans does he have up his sleeve for an independent Scotland? So far his one “clever plan” is getting his hands on North Sea oil whilst quietly forgetting Scotland’s share of a £trillion pound in debt run up by Scottish banks and a Scottish former PM.

    3] Is making Scotland independent going to change the fact that it is a shitty, rainy, mountainous, drug infested, overweight shit-hole perched on the very edge of the European map?

    4] Has it not occured to Salmondo that Scotland is no worse off than the rest of the UK outside London, and the reason it is worse off relative to London is because all the profits of the UKs big companies end up being creamed off in London, where they are never seen again? This is not going to change just because Scotland has pulled out of this arrangement at a political level. It would be far better for Scotland to join with the rest of the UK to have some of those HQs moved to other parts of the UK so the profits of private capital are more evenly spread, and maybe move Parliament somewhere more central.

    Salmondo is a twat, but he knows the people most likely to vote for….. nothing in particular it seems…. are stupid people easily bought by promises of free childcare and more bennies.

    If you constrain yourself to philosophers Kant and before Kant then you won’t find many atheists in that bunch and from Voltaire to Kant himself they are obsessed with defining god and absolute morality, so having a topic focussed on that particular aspect of philosophy is only natural and comes about from avoiding those atheist philosophers that come after Kant, the obvious one being Marx and dialectical materialism.

    As for you criticism of “state” education, bear in mind that so-called independent schools follow the same curriculum with the same exams and draw from the same pool of teachers. Your prejudice is misplaced. They are “all as bad (or good) as each other”. If you find a public school that advertises itself as being an institute of supreme learning with results to back it up let me know – most seem to pride themselves on sports facilities and music lessons (whilst telling the prospective parents they can pull strings for Oxbridge).

    Am ex-Oxbridge myself (that is not a sneer… ;-) ), and judge the UK system against the better parts of North America and elsewhere. (S’ingapore / H’ong K’ong are very good examples)

    The system in the UK has been weakened mainly in a bid to bring it in to line with the systems in Europe. However, without the depth or useful broadness that is found in places like Sw!tzerland / Germany.

    The corruption you mention generally applies to a fairly small minority, but it is a fact that there is a hard economic line separating access to education in the UK. I recall two incidents I was witness to which do fall into that category: One guy was sent down after a year for failing exams repeatedly (went on to make good money in the city mind), the other case involved a degree demotion and big black mark on academic record for a guy who had been plagiarising project work (engineering) throughout his course of study. Recall that a proctor left a note for him on his desk at the end of his last exam, I guess as he thought he had just got away with it.

    Where this becomes problematic is where the indoctrination aspect is allowed to trump imparting enough skills and knowledge to produce people who can compete in the broader global economy properly.

    Again, not so much of a problem for the small minority who go to Oxbridge, but it becomes a problem when the tipping point is past and there simply are to many functionally illiterate and unmotivated folk about. It is not their fault they were made that way (they were unaware of what was going on), but they are persecuted none the less by the people who made them that way.

    Am not a fan at all of the UK state system any more. The philosophy behind its means of education is flawed and unhelpful.

    Apart from the fact that this is a fantastically inept comparison, there is a point about Harold Wilson’s pipe. He only smoked it for public display: it was part of his phoney avuncular act. In private he smoked small cigars.

    By the way, the pipe in old photographs of Wilson, a straight briar, looks very English in style, and I would bet on its having been made here.

    another fucking non story. A bloke who isn’t very good at political spin flew from US to spin for Labour and didn’t have the right papers. We’re letting 500,000 Bulgarians and Rumanians in without a need for visas and this is newsworthy?

    That is a different problem which needs to be fixed.

    The US take these matters very seriously. Graf should be under no illusions about what is coming.

    At least in the UK we don’t torture illegal workers in jail cells with pepper spray before throwing them out, like they do in the US, but perhaps that is a new skill which G4S should start looking into.

    Or a lefty. It’s part of the socialist doctrine these days to hate Israel now that South Africa is post colonial. Most don’t know why or have an inkling of the history of the region. It is enough for them that somehow the US is involved and the herd dictates that Israel is a bad thing. Many of the brethren can’t even distinguish between Zio­nism and antise­mitism and we now see soc­ialists acting as fas­cists. But this the fate of all socialist systems: to morph into fascism.

    Antisem­itism used to be the only way you could tell the difference except that soc­ialists had bread queues and fa­scists had better uniforms. Now that distinction is completely blurred.

    The Times says:

    Labour has quietly drawn up spending plans that would allow it to borrow £25 billion more than the Tories after the next election, despite promising to match George Osborne’s pledge of clearing the deficit.
    A “sleight of hand” by Ed Balls means he would be able to slow the pace of public cuts proposed by the Tories, opening up a further ideological divide between the two parties.
    The Shadow Chancellor claims his new spending plans show that Labour “cannot and will not duck the hard choices ahead”.
    However, the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), the country’s most respected economic think-tank, has confirmed that by committing to clear the “current deficit” rather than the overall deficit, Labour will be able to borrow and spend more.

Otherwise they’ll sit in their offices sending emails to each other. Proactive? Not a chance, they don’t know what’s going on out there until it is too late.

    You are right about not many philosophers being atheist pre-Kant although David Hume must be a strong contender, based on how he writes rather than the mountains of waffle from others. OK, only beats Kant by a whisker, so let us look at a broader field.

    The whole rise of science was seen as a challenge to religion, which had been responsible for the whole broader field of philosophy, including physics, chemistry, biology, logic and astronomy amongst many others since the 13th century Dominicans and The Doctor Angelicus. So what you observe is no more than historical reality, if I have not misunderstood your point.

    Now look at the educational establishment a prisoner of the state for decades. No religion here? Well yes actually, Marxisim, as you say, but also positivism, bad science, Common Purpose, bombastic contempt for doubt or any form of alternative to their own held prejudice, the list goes on… Oh and consequentialism!

    The mere absence of a deity, made in man’s own image, is the only differentiating factor from more conventional religions, apart from burning incense, all the rest is there with the bells and whistles.

    It is in that context that I see CO6 @10:33 being entirely correct in his third paragraph and on an interesting path in his second (he did caveat with resembles)

    To the first paragraph, I cannot judge as I have not been inside the DfE since the 1990s but it would not be out of character that a department rows in its own way, independent of its minister, a fortiori one like Gove.

    To yours @11:20, the independent schools are independent practically only to a degree as most of the parameters are set by the state, i.e. the DfE.

    The difference is that the independents inculcate different attitudes into their pupils, “act subversively” if you like, judging it whilst wearing a Marxist hat!


    Your remarks regarding functionally illiteracy are confirmed by so many of my academic friends, teaching at universities, who have to spend most of the first semester on remedial work before they can progress onto their own syllabus. One cannot help being struck by the fact that some of these who complain are themselves Marxists who have failed to spot the most elementary connection! My earlier comments regarding religion refer…

    Casual Observer 6 says:

    There was one major piece of teaching dropped from comprehensive vs. private education syllabus’ which is of note: Geometry.

    For people wishing to progress in field of Mathematics / Sciences / much of engineering, the lack of basic skills in that area is a very serious impediment. It is one of those branches of the discipline that cannot be covered over by issuing a calculator or machine also.

    Mechanics also is not taught properly either. This is connected with the absence of geometry. So, with what is taught a prospective student will know how to break down a quadratic, and may have been introduced to conic sections, but if they are faced with a problem which involves an ellipse or requires use of vectors, they are stuffed. Many Universities now have to spend their first year teaching their students these basics which previously would have been covered at O-Level and A-Level.

    In Physics / Chemistry and Engineering this gap is a very serious problem. Not having such insight is a problem in other fields as well – particularly those which are practical.

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.”
