All UKIP supporters stand and holler. The Muslims schools are getting theirs. Bloody right. The head honcho at the school inspectorate stated that these schools failed because the “active promotion of a narrow set of values and beliefs is making children vulnerable to segregation and emotional dislocation from wider society”
I blushed into my cornflakes. For I went to a school
Where we were not so much segregated from the other sex but not allowed anywhere near them.
Where we were implicitly and explicitly made feel superior to the vast majority of the British/world population. Racism was if not encouraged winked at.
Where we were rendered completely incapable of sympathising or understanding anyone who was not from our narrow class.
Where nearly all were confirmed in to the CofE and understood Catholics to be barmies or left footers, Jews to be Yids, Buddhism was for girls, Muslims a joke and Hindus so feeble that a couple of boys from our school could rule them for 300 years.
Where our education made us petrified of women and therefore liable to only the most hopeless of unequal relationships and disastrous parenthood.
Where despite/because of the above we were made to believe that were patently better and born to rule .
Nevertheless for most this education failed and they went onto have normal lives, become family men and more or less coexist with the human race. For others it has not been so easy. I will be visiting my wife in the cellar later this morning and my children have promised to phone at Christmas/Diwali.
