Tory Wars-i: Sayeeda Declares War on PM

The Speccie this evening reports that Dave laid into Gove at the weekend over his not unfair criticism of the PM’s old Etonian clique. Apparently “he was torn a new one and given a right royal bollocking”, and the PM told him he was “bang out of order”. Bit awkward then that Sayeeda Warsi is due on ITV’s The Agenda later tonight and has just done this:

“Michael was making an incredibly serious point that it can’t be right that the 7% of kids who go to independent school end up at the top tables, not just of politics, but banking, and law, and every other profession, and that what Michael wants to create is a first class, world class state system which means that in future years you will have more pupils from state schools, people like me, around the cabinet table, and in that I fully support Michael Gove.”

You gonna take that, Prime Minister?

      It was not like this in the seventies before (privately educated) Shirley Williams dismantled the state’s grammar school system. In those days most Oxbridge students weren’t public school.

        M, comprehensive schools were going in the 1950’s down south, up north we were still stuck with grammar school, tech. collages and secondary modern schools, and a few public schools for those mummies and daddys that wanted to pay, and the odd prep school so that boaderliners would get into grammar schools. If a comprehensive school is properly managed with good teachers who can teach ,which is not the same as a highly intelligent knowledgeable about their subject but cannot put across the subject to their pupils.

      Eton is one of the few schools to have a tradition of producing Prime Ministers, and to teach pupils to that role.
      The fact that so many members of the cabinet went to proper schools reflects on the failures of the state system and particularly on the demise of grammar schools.

    The BBC: Washington’s Mouthpiece

    http://tinyurl.com/ntlvzmc

    Once upon a time the BBC was a news organization, but that was before the organization sold out to Washington. Today the BBC is a liar for Washington. Indeed, the BBC is a despicable organization that believes that “exceptional, indispensable” Washington has the right to determine the fate of all peoples.

    The BBC says that the referendum in Crimera is disputed. But by whom? Not by the people voting. The dispute comes from the anti-democratic forces that are not voting–the Obama regime and its puppet UK government and puppet BBC ministry of propaganda.

    How far the BBC has fallen! Look as these BBC lies:

    Lie: “Many Crimeans loyal to Kiev boycotted the referendum, and the EU and US condemned it as illegal.”

          I tbhink you are correct. I have not met anyone who thinks that the Russians have done much wrong. Crimea always was a Russian province, since the time of Catherine the Great. If the people there are happy to go back to being part of Russia I see no real problem with that. Of course, Putin could have used other methods, but they would have dragged things out and risked much greater instability. Better for a quick decisive process.

            This is probably correct, Crimea was historically part of Russia, shoved into Ukraine by Kruschev, a Ukie by the way. If the vote was open to all entitled to vte and was properly conducted and the result genuine, then this method of reunification, seemingly heavy handed but probably preferable in the long run to a more lenghy and dangerous alternative is okay as far as it goes in the world of real power politics. As for the US, EUSSR and Britain, Putin has correctly weighed up their options. It may effect a small number of wealthy Russian gangsters and their families for a while (or maybe not) but not much else. Germany will do nothing as any serious action could leave them sitting in the cold eating raw sausage as they currently by 40% of their gas from Russia.

In the days of the Empire, this allowed people to govern vast tracts of Africa almost single-handed, their aura of Cakehood recognised by their subjects.

Not quite in the league of Brown but nonetheless totally fucking oblivious to how the most obvious of gaffes will be spotted and highlighted.

        I’ve not heard much (yet) from Labour about the Eton Manifesto. But it’s coming. Now, if Dave thinks his Eton chums really are the finest minds in the country then fine but even so he should still have roped in a few grammar school or state school Tories to stick on the author list. Even if he totally ignored every fucking word they said.

        I suppose the problem with the cabinet is that he had to give a bunch of the jobs to Lib Dems so there wasn’t many ‘spare’ positions to hand out to non-Cakeians. But he really still should have made more of an effort.

    As is so usual in the media, Michael Gove’s comments were completely misrepresented. He was saying it’s a crying shame that State education is so lousy it doesn’t throw up Cabinet Ministers, or high flyers in other disciplines. Sayeeda Warsi is entirely right in her interpretation of his comments. It is not an ATTACK on on Cameron or Old Etonians, it is a comment on the inadequacy of State education. If Cameron can’t see that and not take it personally, he’s even more stupid than I think he is.

    Just imagine if the state pension had been run, since its inception, as a proper pension fund with NI contributions being invested worldwide in property,bonds,stocks,shares etc. by the best fund managers the government could hire.

    We would now be able to afford to pay out a far more generous retirement pension to everyone at 65 and no need to increase the retirement age.

    Instead successive governments have just pissed the NI contributions up the wall on their pet projects and therefore we have the massive ponzi scheme we see today.
