    Coupled with that is that the bottom has fallen out of adult Ed. As a kid, I remember lots of the parents doing all sorts at night school, in the actual school when the kids had gone home. It was rich. This was killed deliberately by government and then they moan that people can’t cook, that we are a throw away society etc. Start night school again and teach these people proper skills, help people to be self sufficient. It’s not rocket science.
  3. Luckily, she didn’t decapitate one of her pupils. Mind, it’s an accident murder waiting to happen.

    Deliberately so I think. It all started off when they did away with proper vocational qualifications and brought in NVQs, which apparently stands for Not Very Qualified.

    And, even if you could find a course, it would be eye wateringly expensive. Long gone are the days of night school where you could learn something really useful for peanuts. Imho, it’s deliberate as a way of dumbing down the population.

    That’s not a yacht, that’s tindeavour.
  9. My neighbour, the sea captain (retired) is the chairman of the seaman’s cottages, a charity thing that has been there for centuries providing cheap housing for retired seamen. The stories he tells are something else. Things happening on a daily, or nightly, basis.

    I will rise above the insult. re Gove, clearly something happened to him at school and he revisited it the education establishment in his time as education secretary.
  11. Following on from this (I thought it had its own thread but couldn’t find it) https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7147539/More-30-000-live-flats-timber-cladding-removed.html Over 30,000 people are living in flats with timber cladding which may have to be removed following a fire in Barking. As many as 12,600 flats in 220 different developments featuring the cladding have been given the go-ahead by planners across the UK in recent years. Both developers and councils are now working to conduct investigations after safety concerns over the material.

    He is kind of on the inside as his dad was a bishop, so not exactly a pleb. Heaven forbid that they actually allow one of the great unwashed into their inner circle.

    I see the esteemed journalist, Jon snow is not on that list. Alas he didn’t make the cut because he failed his A levels at scabby tech.
