Forget Party Affiliation - If This Doesn't Anger You, Why Not?

Check out the education tag on the sidebar for my personal experience of primary schooling in Greater London. I'll be diplomatic and say it's poor and that there is more than a certain amount of Guardianista massaging.

Nothing on a par with this though, courtesy of Rab. It may be 4 minutes long but click through and try to keep your jaw from making contact with the ground.

I dare anyone left of centre to defend this. Remember that Diane Abbott is still a serving MP.

Politicisation of 8 and 9 year old kids is wrong, and I would feel the same if it were a homage to a Lib Dem or Tory MP, or even a Libertarian one.

If this guy isn't drummed out of the education service sharpish, there is something very wrong with our country.




Quite staggering.

UPDATE: Someone didn't like their political handiwork being publicised - the film has been taken down

UPDATE 2: Resurrected

My 7 year old told me 'I was obese' (I have a beer gut I earned after many years of serving the Crown)

I asked him what does that mean?

He said 'You smoke too much Dad'

NuLabour... Commies to the core. But I don't fret. I learnt quite a lot fighting their wars.

DP,

I lasted 1min 5secs - and this is education? This is what we pay taxes for? This is what parents want for their children?

It really is all Balls!

And in typical Socialist fashion, comments are not allowed on the You Tube site.

Hey Abbott and the rest of you Labour fools watch this.

It's what may happen to you if you do not stop going down the totalitaren road.
It will always end this way for corrupt politicians.
It's a historical certainty.

The school's web site -

(Well, I'm pretty sure that it's the right school...)

Mrs Rigby said...

No, sorry, I watched the first 40 seconds and then stopped, I couldn't take any more.

This is disgusting indoctrination. The children don't know better, but their teachers should.

Dick Puddlecote said...

Ta, Rab. It looks like this guy, Tom Panagiotopoulos.

Dazed And Confused said...

This needs to be shown to the British public at large, before it's removed from you tube by Abbott herself.

It genuinely does take my breath away.

DP…thanks for this colostomy bag. Their Diane (I’m all bum-hole) Abbott rap crap was a fucking garbled mess…which is just as well.

I was surprised to see three white faces in there, perhaps that was a mistake, for which the teacher can apologise later – before this daft cunt gets stabbed in the school playground.

What did that big fat black kid say at the end…he was burbling something incoherent…not that I give a fuck anyway.

So, come on all you whiteys join in now…Diane Abbott Hackney MP…the first black woman in our historeee to…

Ring piece kissing for blacks – who needs real education eh?

I only managed 50 seconds...

My low opinion of education and lefties has reached a new low.

Loathsome bastards!

From the schools news on their site:

"15 January 2010
Maths Quiz Success!
A huge thank you to everyone who attended the maths quiz. We raised £40 for the Friends! A special mention to Lisa from Bikes and Buggies, Freddy from Crossbow, Bob Cooke from pie and mash shop, Umit Eseryel from Solche Cilicilan restaurant and La Bouche, for all the fantastic and generous donations for our quiz."

Now, it doesn't mention who "the Friends" are, but it would appear to give five businesses a "special mention". Presumably this is for providing goods and services, or simply time, to contribute towards this unknown cause.

But am I the only one thinking that if they'd each merely donated a tenner each to just fuck off then "the Friends" would have received an extra £10 and everyone, kids included, would have had more time to, I don't know, read a book..?

On economics perhaps..?

JJ, I think he may have been extolling the delights of three bags of Uncle Ben's microwaveable rice per meal but I can't be entirely sure..

(I know how bad that sounds, but please compare it to the Dianne Abbott rap and I think the context is reasonable)

JuliaM said...

It's reminiscent of something from North Korea.

Although, scratch that. The Norks educational system probably knocks ours into a cocked hat - their kids can read and write as well as praise the Dear Leader...

I am Stan said...

Dianne Abbott is a popular MP in her constituency..and she a minor celebrity..and thus her visit is celebrated.....

JuliaM said...

A minor celebrity? Have you seen the size of her?!

Cooking Lager said...

They let the kids be filmed by a parent? Are they not afraid of kiddie fiddlers?

Stop Press:

OH has managed to maintain a copy on his site. I've just downloaded a copy too...

Dick Puddlecote said...

Ta for the heads up, Mac I'd downloaded it in Real Player but that saves any further efforts. :)

RantinRab said...

OH nicked the new version from me. Dazed and Confused supplied me with it earlier today.
