Toby Young.  The best thing that happened to education of an odious, think, privileged and entitled twat?

discuss 

Unlike the lefty alternatives he does at least care about the quality of education on offer. Twat or not, that makes his appointment a good thing.

I think its good.

Anyine outside of the educational establishment or left wing, to give some perdoective.

Im a govenor. Partner is a teacher, althought not British, which does help.

I have meetings and social events where 90% of the teaching staff just parrot the same stuff, with no thought. Again. And again. And again. 

The actual level of most teachers education is shocking - scraped uni pass, limited maths. It woild better insusting that under 16 teachers just have a levels passes in english, science and maths rather than a pointless degree, which, for 80%, seem to be no indication or proof/level of education.

Rubicon.

Young seems to have triggered a lot of the lefties, judging by my twitter feed.

There is something smug and unlikable about him. Most of it is, I really don't like to see the private sector getting enmeshed into public services. We have seen time and again what that means for both quality and cost.

The only thing I know him for is when he went to work in NY for a year, he wrote some interesting stuff... such as New York women are not crying out for a short, bald Brit just because he has a limey accent.

Something about him liking tits seems to be upsetting people.

Never head of the fella, so I've not bothered looking into it.

bald bloke, used to write for the Evening Standard. Wrote this

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_to_Lose_Friends_%26_Alienate_People_(memoir)

which is quite good (insofar as Young probably gives you a candid picture of himself). More than that I don't know.

Having not known much about the guy and now having read that I've decided I like him.

The Guardian are still whinging about this story 5 years on, like a dog with a bone.

He is an aristocrat and almost certainly will always be an aristocrat. He would have to sodomise Prince George or murder the Queen to fuck that gig up. And he knows it.

      These are just some of the headlines today. I wondered what was going on and then I realised that Paul Dacre had retired and been replaced with Geordie Grieg, arch Remoaner formerly editor of Mail On Sunday. I stopped reading MoS because of the overly negative whingefest it became, now I need to find another source of my news. Anyone got any decent suggestions for right-of-centre news that isn't heavily filtered, aside from Breitbart?

      What is there to say about Ed Sheeran that hasn't already been said?
      Well how about when he is doing that thing with his guitar he is really wanking off his cock through a hole cut in back of the guitar.
      Quite a disturbing thought, as I'm sure you will all agree. As in a Japanese horror film I now have to pass it on to be rid of it
