Red Prince Stephen Kinnock’s Safe Seat Set-Back
Daughter’s Expensive Private Education Costs Support


When he was leader of the Labour Party Neil Kinnock once famously asked “Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university?” A memorable line…

Kinnock’s son Stephen’s hopes of securing the safe seat of Aberavon in Wales may be dashed by the news reaching the valleys that his daughter, Neil’s granddaughter, is the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be privately educated. This has not gone down well despite Stephen Kinnock bringing his glamorous wife – who just happens to be Helle Thorning-Schmidt, the Prime Minister of Denmark who poses for selfies with President Obama – to a Welsh Labour Party fundraiser. Insiders say the daughter’s expensive education at one of Copenhagen’s most sought after private schools will cost this “Red Prince” the solidly socialist seat. Excuses won’t wash boyo…

    In Denmark there are some schools that provide specialist teaching for high ability children, and in order to enable them to provide that they make a nominal charge of about £100 per month. Otherwise they are 99% funded by the state, and are to all intents and purposes maintained schools.

    Steve Kinnock’s eldest daughter went to such a school from 14 to 16, before going to sixth form college. His other daughter has stayed in the local community comprehensive. It is not, therefore, true to say that his children have used private schools.

    Comparisons between the divided British system and the Danish system are misleading. There are a few British-type private schools in Denmark, but neither of Steve’s girls went to such schools, at any time.

    Here's another idea says:

    Your defence of the twats fails on a simple numerical error. You claim that a ‘nominal’ £100 per month is payable for a child to be taught in a high-ability school, ‘otherwise’ that place is 99% funded by the state. That would mean that each place in this state school costs £10,000 per month, or £120,000 per year per pupil. Taxes may be high in Denmark, Miss Jill, but they are not that fucking high.

    Both she and her husband, who have two daughters, have also been beset by controversy over their financial affairs following a scandal last year in which Mr Kinnock was accused of avoiding paying Denmark’s high taxes.
    Mr Kinnock, the director of Europe and Central Asia for the World Economic Forum, pays income tax on his £110,000 salary in Switzerland, where rates are around four times lower, and told authorities he spent no more than 33 weekends, from Friday to Monday, in Denmark each year. His non-resident status allowed Miss Thorning-Schmidt to deduct about £40,000 in tax from mortgage repayments on their £500,000 home in Copenhagen. But in an application to make him co-owner of the family home last year, she claimed he was there “every weekend of the year”. She was subsequently forced to admit she made “sloppy mistakes” in filling out her tax returns. – Daily Telegraph 2011

Today’s obese, slack-jawed, numbingly obtuse youth may have been OK for cannon fodder at Badajoz, but they wouldn’t have made it at Majuba or the Somme let alone in a modern Army that requires an outrageous level of fitness and literacy and numeracy in even the lowliest squaddie.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
