And if that wasn't bad enough...

The Children's Society (who's full name is "CHURCH OF ENGLAND CHILDREN'S SOCIETY", very telling) have produced a report claiming that
Selfish adults 'damage childhood'

All well and good so far, but take a look at their recommendations:
abolishing SATs tests and league tables in English schools

Mustn't let kids ever experience failure then. Cover up failings, that way, they don't exist, do they?
A ban on all advertising aimed at the under 12s and no TV commercials for alcohol or unhealthy food before the 9pm watershed

Fuck sake.
A civil birth ceremony conducted by a registrar in which parents publicly accept the responsibilities of parenthood

I fully agree people should accept the responsibilities of parenthood, especially the chav scum who are breeding and creating today's feral underclass. But a "ceremony"? Sounds very EUSSR.

In fact, the whole thing sounds very governmental. It's full of hand-wringing Nu-Labour feral-apologist shit and sounds like just the kind of thing the government might produce in order to further fuck things up.

Now why might that be?

Could it be that the Children's Society recieved almost £650,000 from government departments last year?

Now the child spies have to pledge their allegence to the 'party' at birth.

Dave - all schools had internal exams at appropriate times, long before SATS and league tables. The latter are simply to let New Labour proclaim the great glory of their work on the education system.

Which - as we all know - is a completer fucking disaster, with University entrants often having have literacy and numeracy teaching.

The disaster that NL have set loos on schools will ensure we slided down the economic tables for years to come. In short - we are fucked, regardless.

Presumably, Elby passed his GCSE English with flying colours...

P.S. BD, you will be submitting your findings to as soon as it gets off the ground, won't you?

it's either banned or compulsory said...

The Church Of Englands Childrens society used to be a proper charity with residential homes and an adoption agency.
I didn't notice quite when it turned into a fake one but its website says it all ( actually it says very little about what it is now for ).
