What A Farce

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, English Schools, European Union, Gays, Human Rights, News with tags , , , , on 06/09/2017 by floroy1942

Britain is really going bonkers (and I put that politely). A Priory School in Lewes has gone so far as to ban skirts in order to introduce a more gender-neutral uniform.

The headmaster said, “Transgender students are only a small aspect of why we have made this decision, there are five or six trans-students currently at the school.” So the whole school has to wear a transgender uniform to satisfy these five or six queers?

I have a long time given up on Britain as a place to live, for the whole country is going mad. How long before other schools join the ‘transgender revolution’? It is sickening to me that such rules have to be passed to satisfy these people.

Several parents have criticised the move – especially since they weren’t consulted before the big change. One mother with a daughter at the school said that her daughter wasn’t happy with having her gender taken away. “My daughter said she has got a gender and it’s female so being gender neutral when she has got a gender is a big deal for her, as she’s proud to be a girl,” she commented.

“The hypocrisy is what gets me the most,” said another mum. “If girls dressing differently than boys is now to be considered sexist, then it is equally sexist to have female teachers wearing skirts and not wearing ties.” “If they want this, they must live the values they force on others and go fully gender free. The school is creating a hostile environment for girls by treating their views with contempt.”

Chief executive Susie Green said “adding gender neutral uniforms is one of many simple ways that schools can help any pupils struggling with their gender in any way. Schools need to take a clear line to accept and embrace all diversity, no matter how small the numbers affected.”

I find this most disturbing,  and wonder what the U.K. will be like in ten years time. It makes me wonder if Britain is going mad! What is our world going to look like in ten or twenty years time.

I Just Can’t Believe This – Boy’s In Skirts?

Posted in America, Britain, Children, English Schools, Gays, Homosexuals, Modern World, News, Parenting, Teens with tags , , , , on 15/05/2017 by floroy1942

Boys In Skirts?

Can you imagine boys going to school in skirts? It would appear that this is the latest new trend in North London’s Highgate Private School! Its all about being ‘gender neutral’, and the school authorities have initiated the idea of allowing boys to wear skirts to school if they so desire.

Girls can already wear a grey pleated skirt or trousers but the boys are restricted to wearing trousers and have to wait until they are sixteen before even adorning themselves with earrings.

Adam Pettitt, headmaster at the school said, “This generation is really questioning [if we are] being binary in the way we look at things. He said some former pupils had complained about the changes. “They write in and say if you left children to their own devices they would grow up differently and you are promoting the wrong ideas,”

Well, I certainly agree with that for allowing boys to wear skirts would ensure they grow up to be homosexuals.

The school already allows children to request that staff address them by a name of the opposite gender, which around half a dozen have done. One boy has also been allowed to wear a dress to school. Can you imagine a boy wearing a dress to school? It is too ridiculous for words!

Its about time this gender idea was knocked on the head, for in my time boys never got the idea that they were feminine. The LGBT crowd have been given far too much freedom these days and pretty soon the world will be filled with them. As you can imagine from this blog, I don’t like homosexuals and lesbians etc. I remember well when I was in Amsterdam seeing men strolling around holding hands and often kissing on the streets. It was disgusting.

I well remember when I went to a friend’s wedding in Biarritz in France. A gang of us went out after the wedding on the town, and late at night we ended up in a ‘gay’ bar. When we went inside we saw men kissing and fondling each other like crazy. It was disgusting to say the least. I kept my backside against the wall for the whole time we were in there.

There are many people these days who accept readily the idea of ‘gays’ but I am afraid I do not. Many people turn up at ‘gay parades’ to watch men dancing around practically naked, in fact some of them are naked.

I have to say that the world is going crazy these days and I am glad I am old, for I do not wish to live in a society that is flooded with these strange men and women.

The School Debate

Theresa May

Theresa May

It amazes me that so many people are up in arms about Theresa May wanting to reintroduce grammar schools. Why, what is wrong with these people? Years ago these schools were the backbone of higher education, excluding university’s of course, and they were there for the more gifted youngsters. They were a beacon for the more intelligent children who eventually got into our university’s.

Corbyn The Fool

Corbyn The Fool

From this system came our brightest scientists, industry entrepreneurs and politicians and many more. Since we no longer have proper grammar schools this has all but disappeared.

Eleven-plus Exam

Eleven-plus Exam

Britain still has 166 grammar schools but they are nothing like they used to be. We need more throughout Britain to give our children a choice in education, and an opportunity to increase their knowledge above that which is taught in secondary modern schools.

I have to say that our education system is currently a total failure, with poor teachers, classroom sizes far too big, and a total lack of discipline, all creating a generation of idiots for the most part. Naturally I do not include all children or teachers in this category. Compared to years ago, few of our children are bright enough to get to university. If we ever stopped foreign students from entering them most would close down for lack of pupils.

In Days Gone By

In Days Gone By

When I compare today’s education system with what it was like when I was a child I have to say that the entire system is a shambles. Teachers of my day knew their subject back to front and inside out. You asked a question and you got an immediate answer, whereas today many teachers must refer to the lesson material before giving an answer.

Street Thugs

Street Thugs

Discipline has gone out the window because the teacher is not allowed to take any action against an unruly pupil, except perhaps to send them out of the class. Long gone are the most effective methods of teaching a child discipline in class, and today, if any action is taken the parents will be hammering on the headmaster’s door complaining like hell. No, I’m afraid child discipline is a thing of the past, which is evident in the child and teenage thugs, thieves and killers we have in our society today. I do not blame the schools entirely for this because many parents do little to bring up their child properly.

We make no difference today between a gifted child and a fool with the current system and that is a shame. Gifted children should be given a good education to make the most of their talents in grammar schools, but they can’t currently have that when sharing a class with dunces, to use an old word.

Grammar Schools In England

Grammar Schools In England

Ever since Tony Blair had exams made easier so that he could show high pass rates  for kids the whole system has gone down the drain. Many teachers are no longer trained properly, have scant knowledge of their chosen subject and in my view are practically worthless.

If teachers were trained properly they would know their chosen subject inside out, and be able to answer any question from pupils without referring to their books. It worked years ago why not now? The answer to that is because the teachers are not trained properly, and often enter schools before they are fully qualified because of a shortage.

Could We See Another Albert Einstein?

Could We See Another Albert Einstein?

If Britain is to move forward in the current high-tech world, we have to start training our children to behave properly, learn properly and be a credit to society, not some lout always looking for a fight.

If the grammar school idea is put into practice, we have to ensure that teachers are properly qualified, and the most gifted children are allowed to attend. The 11-plus exam certainly separates the wheat from the chaff, and this is precisely what we need if this country is to move forward. We need to nurture our more brighter pupils into becoming our future leaders in science, industry and politics.

A Swiss Dilemma And A Warning To Europe

A Normal Showing Of Respect In All Swiss Schools

A Normal Showing Of Respect In All Swiss Schools

A row has broken out in Switzerland about the shaking of hands, and you can guess who is causing this controversy – the Muslims! The following article was sent to me by a friend and I thought it interesting enough to post here.

It certainly gives you an idea of the great divide that separates us westerners from our Muslim immigrants, and adds fuel to the belief that they will never fully integrate into our society even though we offer them a home free from strife and war.

“In Switzerland it has long been customary for students to shake the hands of their teachers at the beginning and end of the school day. It’s a sign of solidarity and mutual respect between teacher and pupil, one that is thought to encourage the right classroom atmosphere. Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga recently felt compelled to further explain that shaking hands was part of Swiss culture and daily life.

And the reason she felt compelled to speak out about the handshake is that two Muslim brothers, aged 14 and 15, who have lived in Switzerland for several years (and thus are familiar with its mores), in the town of Therwil, near Basel, refused to shake the hands of their teacher, a woman, because, they claimed, this would violate Muslim teachings that contact with the opposite sex is allowed only with family members. At first the school authorities decided to avoid trouble, and initially granted the boys an exemption from having to shake the hand of any female teacher. But an uproar followed, as Mayor Reto Wolf explained to the BBC: “the community was unhappy with the decision taken by the school. In our culture and in our way of communication a handshake is normal and sends out respect for the other person, and this has to be brought home to the children in school.”

Therwil’s Educational Department reversed the school’s decision, explaining in a statement on May 25 that the school’s exemption was lifted because “the public interest respect to equality between men and women and the integration of foreigners significantly outweighs the freedom of religion.” It added that a teacher has the right to demand a handshake. Furthermore, if the students refused to shake hands again “the sanctions called for by law will be applied,” which included a possible fine of up to 5,000 dollars

This uproar in Switzerland, where many people were enraged at the original exemption granted to the Muslim boys, did not end after that exemption was itself overturned by the local Educational Department. The Swiss understood quite clearly that this was more than a little quarrel over handshakes; it was a fight over whether the Swiss would be masters in their own house, or whether they would be forced to yield, by the granting of special treatment, to the Islamic view of the proper relations between the sexes. It is one battle – small but to the Swiss significant – between overweening Muslim immigrants and the indigenous Swiss.

Naturally, once the exemption was withdrawn, all hell broke loose among Muslims in Switzerland. The Islamic Central Council of Switzerland, instead of yielding quietly to the Swiss decision to uphold the handshaking custom, criticized the ruling in hysterical terms, claiming that the enforcement of the handshaking is “totalitarian” (!) because its intent is to “forbid religious people from meeting their obligations to God.” That, of course, was never the “intent” of the long-standing handshaking custom, which was a nearly universal custom in Switzerland, and in schools had to do only with encouraging the right classroom atmosphere of mutual respect between instructor and pupil, of which the handshake was one aspect.

The Swiss formulation of the problem – weighing competing claims — will be familiar to Europeans and Americans versed in Constitutional adjudication. In this case “the public interest with respect to equality” of the sexes and the “integration of foreigners” (who are expected to adopt Swiss ways, not force the Swiss to exempt them from some of those ways) were weighed against the “religious obligations to God” of Muslims, and the former interests found to outweigh the latter.

What this case shows is that even at the smallest and seemingly inconsequential level, Muslims are challenging the laws and customs of the Infidels among whom they have been allowed to settle [i.e., stealth jihad toward sharia dominance]. Each little victory, or defeat, will determine whether Muslims will truly integrate into a Western society or, instead, refashion that society to meet Muslim requirements.

The handshake has been upheld and, what’s more, a stiff fine now will be imposed on those who continue to refuse to shake hands with a female teacher. This is a heartening sign of non-surrender by the Swiss. But the challenges of the Muslims within Europe to the laws and customs of the indigenes have no logical end and will not stop. And the greater the number of Muslims allowed to settle in Europe, the stronger and more frequent their challenges will be. They are attempting not to integrate, but rather to create, for now, a second, parallel society, and eventually, through sheer force of numbers from both migration and by out-breeding the Infidels, to fashion not a parallel society but one society — now dominated by Muslim sharia.

The Swiss handshaking dispute has received some, but not enough, press attention. Presumably, it’s deemed too inconsequential a matter to bother with. But the Swiss know better. And so should we.

There’s an old Scottish saying that in one variant reads: “Many a little makes a mickle.” That is, the accumulation of many little things leads to one big thing. That’s what’s happening in Europe today This was one victory for the side of sanity. There will need to be a great many more.”  

When a foreign country takes you in because your own is at war you would expect those who have been saved from war and death to be grateful, and assimilate into your society, respecting your laws and customs. In the modern world this is not happening, at least not with the Muslims. Their initial gratitude is short-lived and then they begin to assert their way of life on Europe.

Many will think that this another anti-Muslim rant reading this, but that just is not true. I am perfectly willing to live alongside these people if they respect us, our laws, and way of life. Sadly, they do not.

While all other religions have adapted to modern life and have kept up with the times, sad to say this is not true of the Islamic religion. With their rules and customs they are still living in an era of 2,000 years ago.

Muslims are literally brainwashed into their religion, for they are taught the Qur’an as soon as they are old enough to read, and they have no other choice. Try to leave the Muslim faith and you will be put to death.

The article states:  “They are attempting not to integrate, but rather to create, for now, a second, parallel society.I should think by now that most people in Europe, at least those with active brains, will see that the quoted sentence is justified.

In places all over Europe they have taken over districts of cities and towns and turned them into something resembling their own country, complete with Sharia Law. With their birthrate six or seven times that of ethnic Europeans they will outnumber us in say twenty or thirty years time, and then the troubles will really start. For there can be little doubt that from that time on they will try to take over the whole of Europe and to make it Muslim.

The people of Europe will not stand for this, so you can be sure there will be fighting between them and us. If they outnumber us who is to say who will win.

I am glad I old and will not be around to see it, but I pity my children and grandchildren who will have to live through this. There can be little doubt that European governments need to wake up to this hidden menace and take steps to stop it, for if they don’t, then all hell with break loose.

The Upside-Down World Of Today!

Richard Cairns - Headmaster

Richard Cairns – Headmaster

Until now schoolgirls wear a skirt and schoolboys wear trousers along with a blazer as part of the school uniform at all schools in England, but a private boarding college in Brighton has changed this tradition. The headmaster Richard Cairns has now removed that rule and the school pupils can wear trousers or skirt as they see fit. This is yet another step in the mad craze of making life gender neutral.

So from now we could see young boys turning up at school wearing a skirt if they are that way inclined, and young girls wearing trousers. According to the headmaster the rule is designed to make trans students or students experiencing gender dysphoria feel more comfortable. On the subject he remarked, “If some boys and girls are happier identifying with a different gender from that in which they were born, then my job is to make sure that we accommodate that.”

Teaching Children About Devious Sexual Practices Is Wrong.

Teaching Children About Devious Sexual Practices Is Wrong.

Cairns believes that students should be able to express their identity both in and out of school, and he believes that being able to choose what they wear is part of that. It would seem to me that he is overstepping his bounds as an educator, for his sole job is to educate these youngsters, not make statements or change the rules to accommodate those who are neither the one nor the other.

It’s almost as bad as the UK universities of Lancaster and Northampton that introduced gender neutral toilets.

You may not hear much these days about those who are confused about what they are, i.e. male or female (and I put that nicely), but these perverts are still hard at work getting their devious message across, especially to the younger generation.

It seems that very many people today want to make these perverts feel at home and give them all the freedom they want to go after whomsoever they please. Sorry! But it does not impress me. I guess we’ll just have to wait until the Muslims take over the country in twenty or so years time, for then all the deviants will be heading for the nearest port or airfield and life can finally return to normal.

A Canadian Local Mayor Refuses To Remove Pork From A School Canteen Menu

Posted in Britain, Canada, Christianity, David Cameron, Immigration, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, News, Religion, UK with tags , , , , on 10/08/2015 by floroy1942

I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of all the Muslim immigrants making demands of schools, local councils, and the government that we should change our ways to suit them.

The Future

The Future

For example, it makes me angry every time I hear Muslims demanding that all pork be removed from school meals because pork offends them. Ok! So it offends them, but they don’t have to eat it, and our children have the right to do so if they choose. At least you would think so would you not?

Muslim-Schools-Ban-Our-CultureBut what happens? Here all the schools immediately drop pork from the menu to satisfy these people! It is not right, but we have too many appeasers in our society who are doing everything they can to please the Muslims  and are damaging the country and the British way of life.

I was therefore very proud to read of the Canadian Mayor of Dorval who sent the following letter to all Muslim families who attended school.

Muslim parents have demanded the abolition of pork in all the school canteens of a Montreal suburb. It seems it is offensive to the Muslim families and shows much disrespect.
The mayor of the Montreal suburb of Dorval, has refused, and the town clerk sent a note to all parents in the municipality to explain why.

The following is what the note stated:
“Muslims must understand that they have to adapt to Canada and Quebec, its customs, its traditions, its way of life, because that is where they chose to immigrate. They must understand that they have to integrate and learn to live in Quebec. They must understand that it is for them to change their lifestyle, not the Canadians who so generously welcomed them.
They must understand that Canadians are neither racist nor xenophobic, they accepted many immigrants before Muslims (Whereas the reverse is not true, in that ALL Muslim states do not accept non-Muslim immigrants.).
They must also understand that, no more than other nations, Canadians are not willing to give up their identity nor their culture. And if Canada is a land of welcome, it is not just the Mayor of Dorval who welcomes foreigners, but the Canadian-Quebecois people as a whole.
Finally, they must understand that in Canada (Quebec) with its Judeo-Christian roots, Christmas trees, churches and religious festivals, religion must remain in the private domain. Therefore, the municipality of Dorval was right to refuse any concessions to Islam and Sharia.
“For Muslims who disagree with secularism and do not feel comfortable in Canada, there are 57 beautiful Muslim countries in the world, most of them under-populated and ready to receive them with open halal arms in accordance with Shariah law. If you left your country for Canada, and not for other Muslim countries, it is because you have considered that life is better in Canada than elsewhere. So, ask yourself the question, just once, Why is it better here in Canada than where you come from? A canteen with pork is part of the answer.”

When people emigrate to our country it is not for us to make concessions to satisfy their beliefs, it is for them to adapt to our way of life – or leave.

The Muslim Message For Britain

The Muslim Message For Britain

Ever since the traitor Tony Blair raised the gates and let everyone from the whole world in we have had this problem with the Muslims. They refuse to adapt to our way of life but insist that we change ours to accommodate them. Sadly, there are those wimps in the British population who think we should. These idiots turned on their own people to satisfy a bunch of foreigners who are intent on changing our way of life to their own. If I had my way they would all be locked up as traitors.

I must admit I did like the “Canadians are not willing to give up their identity nor their culture”, for that is exactly what we are doing in Britain today. Bit by bit we are bending over backwards to appease these people by giving them everything they want. Pretty soon the country will not be recognized as a Christian country anymore.

Wrong Approach David!

Wrong Approach David!

We are playing into the hands of the Muslims bit by bit, and as their numbers grow, at some time in the future the whole country will become Islamic. The reason for this is that no-one, not local councils, and certainly not the government, is willing to stand up to these people and tell them the truth – like the mayor of Dorval!

Time For A Major Overhaul Of Britain’s Education System!

Posted in Britain, Child Abuse, Children, David Cameron, English Schools, Government, Immigrants, News, Primary Education, Teens with tags , , , , on 17/05/2015 by floroy1942

Once again we are shown how the education system in Britain is failing our youth. It’s no wonder we have so many unemployed young people when many school-leavers cannot read or write properly, as is so often reported. News out today indicates that in a grand survey of the education systems of 76 countries, Britain comes twentieth!

The Top Ten - The Far East Leads The Way.

The Top Ten – The Far East Leads The Way.

When the system in countries like Estonia (7), Poland (11), Vietnam (12) and Slovenia (18) are far better than our own its time to start making some major changes. It should not come as a surprise that countries in the Far East have the best records for education. The top European nation is Finland that comes sixth.

Up to the 1950’s we had one of the best education systems in the entire world. In that time we produced world leading scientists, doctors, theoretician’s and inventors etc. but compare that to today and you get zilch! Remember also that it was without all the fancy computers they have today!

What happened? Education system changes by various governments have brought down the levels to such an extent that anyone leaving school today hasn’t got a cat in hell’s chance of finding meaningful employment.

I Just Hope He Knows His Stuff!

I Just Hope He Knows His Stuff!

A large majority of the teaching staff cannot answer a pupils question without referring to the lesson book because they do not know their subject properly. I hope the exceptions will forgive me!

On top of that, exams have become ridiculously easy thanks to Tony Blair and his government dumbing down the pass rates, and to top it all off, the English education system is bending over backwards to accommodate immigrants. For crying out loud, what is our government doing?

Muslims In British Schools - English! English! English!

Muslims In British Schools – English! English! English!

There should be one single curriculum for every school in the country as in the old days, and if an immigrant can’t speak English then he/she should be told to learn, not given classes in his/her language! There was a report some months ago about a school introducing translation computers that would translate what the teacher said, and questions from immigrants who did not speak the language. How ridiculous is that!

Wrong David! Very Wrong!

Wrong David! Very Wrong!

We should do away with all these silly ‘Free Schools’ begun by Cameron and his government, we should do away with all the Islamic schools and tell these people that if they want their children to learn things in Arabic they do it on their own time! This is Britain, and you either conform or get the hell out!

The 1950's - You Can Bet Your Last Dollar This Man Knew His Subject Inside Out.

The 1950’s – You Can Bet Your Last Dollar This Man Knew His Subject Inside Out.

There should be one curriculum based on the 1950’s model for everybody, and one special school like the old grammar schools for those who pass the entrance exam (11 Plus) on their way to university. The government needs to get rid of all the computers in schools until the final year so that children learn to develop and use their minds, not just which button to push.

It is very sad for people of my generation to see the desperate decline of British values in today’s world. I am just glad that I have seen the Best of Britain and am not having to cope with the demoralized system we have today. If things keep going the way they are, in the future our once proud nation will become no better than a third world country in today’s fast-moving society.
