Not performing, not science, not interested


David Davis

Apologies for absence. Gordon Brown ran out of everyone’s money and so one has to scrape around for things to do and stuff to sell. All very tedious. But today I spotted this. The reason primary school children in Britain are doing poorly at what is laughingly called “science” is that it’s not science as we know it, but AGW indoctrination coupled with something called “healthy eating” and “staying healthy”.

This pointless, green, self-regarding twaddle carries on until the end of Year 9 in secondary schools, by which time the interest in anything called “science” has dried up and gone. It doesn’t get much better at GCSE in year 10 and 11.

The only conclusion you can draw from this disaster is as follws:  that, since it is so huge, has been going on for some years, and runs in all state schools and even some others, and nothing has been done to stop it, is that it’s deliberate.

Here’s one for you to try:-

One response to “Not performing, not science, not interested

  1. A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

    The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

    “She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be an Obama Democrat.”

    “I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

    “Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”

    The man smiled and responded, “You must be a Republican.”

    “I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”

    “Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”
