British Liberals Are Crazy!

I read an interesting article today about our university’s saying that a bunch of Liberals think that we should send even idiots to these places, and massage their exam results to make sure they pass all their exams.

A student who complained about her poor marks for an essay said she had a statement of Special Educational Needs. The teacher was hauled before the university authorities to explain why he had marked her so low. ‘Because it was awful work, the work of a cretin,’ he replied. The teacher was chastised for not taking into account that the student had ‘special educational needs’.

So what this comes down to is that if we have someone with say, dyslexia or ADHD, which is ‘Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder’, then the teachers should make allowances for this condition and artificially boost the marks. If you fail an exam all you have to do is tell the teacher that you have either of these two conditions and he will bump up your marks so that you pass.

University’s are supposed to be for our brightest and most intelligent youth who will then go on the be leaders in various areas of industry, politics and science. It leads me to believe that these Liberals are stark raving mad, and if this continues then a university education will count for absolutely nothing.

It is easy to get one of these certificates from the Education Health and Care plan for a whole host of real or fictional disabilities, so you are assured of passing all your exams. From the information available, it seems middle-class parents have been desperately trying to get certificates proving that their brats are ‘dyslexic’ rather than stupid. Plenty of scientific evidence suggests that both dyslexia and its counterpart ADHD are now so over-diagnosed as to make both terms almost meaningless.

The Dunce Cap

The Dunce Cap

The liberals complain that kids who have an aptitude for examinations, intellectual thought or academic investigation should be sent to schools where these qualities are prized and nourished, and this includes university’s. Others, who have no such aptitude, should not be condemned to attend schools where there are rather fewer academic expectations.

Only our brightest students should have the right to attend university, but what they are doing now is opening the gates to even the dumb and thick who have no right to such an education with a medical excuse that will make sure they graduate. This will surely bring down the level of education for all.

These educational centres are supposed to be for the brightest of our youth and give them a chance to enter industry or science etc. and help the world progress, but these Liberals are undermining the future of our country. No longer will these areas be staffed by the brightest and best of our youth, but be dragged down until it all becomes meaningless.

All of this is an attempt to make everybody equal, but the effect will be to bring the whole country down until we become a nation of dunces. If a teacher has to spend a lot of time explaining certain things to those who are too thick to understand, then the more intelligent ones will be twiddling their thumbs for a while before the lesson can continue.

Exam Time

Exam Time

I cannot imagine what would happen to our country if all our scientists, entrepreneurs, politicians and future teachers are so dumb they cannot even add two and two. But if this plan goes ahead this is what we will become.

Gone will be the advances in computer technology, science and a hundred other areas where we are striving to make our world better. It will become normal for a university degree to be absolutely worthless, and many will suffer because of it.

Will The Current Defence Review Cost Britain the Falklands?

Posted in Atlantic, Britain, Budget Cuts, England, Government, Government Spending, Insanity, MP's, Oceans, Parliament, Royal Navy, UK with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on 27/01/2011 by floroy1942

As always, defence spending is the first thing to be cut when money is seen to be tight. And as usual, the politicians make the same stupid, short-sighted decisions. It seems the present Coalition is no different.

HMS Ark Royal

Currently, the Royal Navy is to be hit hard in that its aircraft carrier fleet is to be scrapped. True, two new carriers are supposed to be built to replace those we have now, but apart from the fact they will not be ready until somewhere around 2017, their future is now in doubt even though construction has begun, and in which £1 billion has already been invested.

Hopefully, One of The Royal Navy's New Carriers

All branches of the armed forces will be hit, but by far the most significant is the proposed phasing out of all three aircraft carriers by 2015. Ark Royal has already been decommissioned, and Invincible and Illustrious are soon to follow. This will leave Britain without a single carrier until around 2017 when, hopefully, maybe, the navy will receive their two replacements at a cost. This cost is a significant reduction in their surface ships to help pay for the new carriers.

It’s like the Falklands war of 1982 never happened!

Without her aircraft carriers, Britain would have stood helplessly by while Argentina took over the islands at their leisure after the invasion, with no amount of harsh words from Margaret Thatcher making any difference.

A Harrier Lands on Deck

As it was, our carrier force with their Harrier VTOL aircraft, was the only thing Britain had in its military arsenal that could effectively strike back at the invaders. As we all know, the entire operation was a resounding success.

But what of today and the near future?

It would seem the current government has forgotten the lessons of the past, and are ready and willing to make the same mistakes when the scrapping of the CVA01 carriers almost cost us the Falklands.

The Argentine government must be rubbing their hands in glee at the prospect of a neutered Royal Navy who will be helpless should they try again in three or four years time. I’ll bet their generals have already started making plans for a new invasion of the islands, knowing full well the British will have no choice but to stand impotent on the sidelines.

The Mighty Vulcan Bomber

Since that conflict in 1982 the RAF has also suffered significant cuts to its budget and aircraft. During the previous conflict, the Vulcan and Victor cold-war bombers played a key role with their huge range of action, bombing targets like the runway at Stanley airfield and attacking the radar installations on the island. They too are long gone! Now Britain has no bombers at all with the range to strike at the Falklands.

The Harrier fleet, which proved so effective against the Argentinean air force has been decommissioned also, but that doesn’t seem to stop the politicians from a proposal which will see a scaling down of the number of Joint-Strike fighters to be ordered.

The Falklands

As I see it, this defence review will prove to be a catastrophe for the Falkland islanders, who in my view had better start learning Argentinean, for in about four years time they will need it.
