Gordon Brown Is Calm, Poised, Experienced And Decisive…

Recommended Posts

From Gill Hornby’s column in yesterday’s Daily Telegraph

""A postscript to those observations about the value of exams: my son has just completed his government and politics AS level. It’s a good, useful academic course, giving sixth-formers a clear insight into the world around them and the necessary tools to make sound judgments on the issues of the day.

In the section entitled “The Executive†are the topics “Blair and Brown as Prime Ministersâ€. The “learning objectives†are to discuss “Tony Blair as Prime Minister†– easy enough – and “Gordon Brown as Prime Ministerâ€. You might think that’s still a work in progress, but the OCR textbook is quite clear: Gordon Brown, it says, is “calm, poised, experienced and decisiveâ€. And that, children, is apparently the right answer.""

Sadly, she missed out the question, which was...

Q 2 - A Labour Junior Minister is on question time. What form of words would you expect him to use to answer the following audience questions :

"Gordon Brown claimed he'd put an end to Boom and Bust. Did he lie, or is he merely useless?"

"Why is it that you're only now considering tabling electoral reform legislation? Does this have anything to do with your disasterous showing in the recent Euro and Council elections?"

"What is the capitol of Boliva?"

"I've just set fire to your merkin!"

(5 marks)

Ha! Ha! Uncle Stalin, eh?

I'm surprised that children haven't yet been invited to call Gordon "Our Dear Leader."

OCR is an examining Board - can't remember what it stands for, though.

"Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Examinations".

Or maybe, "Oi! Qynt! Revise!".

Not sure what RSA stands for, though! :P

Likewise, but if you say it quick enough it sounds like "arsey".

I hope this is a joke, but I fear it is not. :ph34r:

If anyone has documented proof, I suspect the Daily Mail will pay you for it.

Extremism arrived in British politics long before the BNPs European victory, and In the Britain of the future you will get the choice of being kick in the head by the lefts' or the rights' jackboots. finally one will take over and start a bloody war.

The left have the head start by indoctrinating a generation into polishing their footwear.

To be fair, I haven't seen the OCR text book in question and have only the columnist's description of how the question and answer are presented. I suspect that the answer is given as an example of a right answer as opposed to a definitively correct answer.

Nevertheless, it is pure propaganda to even propose that it could constitute a "right answer" and should not have been used even as an example (if, indeed, my suspicions are correct.)

It would have been better to explain that a "right answer" should refer to character traits rather than give such an obviously biassed, specific example of character traits which they must know many pupils will copy verbatim.

It is very easy to trace (and thus avoid) overt extremism such as embodied by the BNP, but it is far harder to get a handle on subtle extremism and the drift toward totalitarianism that is the hallmark of NuLab - especially indoctrination of our children.

If I were the mother of an infant in these times, I would avoid "Sure Start" like the plague. It sounds to me more like an indoctrination camp than a nursery school.

Of course, there is no need to convert adults if one takes the long view and brainwashes the children instead. As resistance dies out with the old'uns who have seen it all before and know not to fall for it again, hey presto! One compliant generation in the bag.

So, "one-eyed, Scottish git" would also score full marks? :lol:
