The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

I read with disbelieve an article in the Daily Mail which suggested that a secondary school is allowing, yes that's correct, allowing pupinl sto swear at teachers.

Apparently they believe that by allowing a pupil to use teh F word up to five times, it will improve the behaviour of the children.

Now what planet are these people on. They say that the plan means teachers will tolerate but not condone. What on earth does that mean. Teachers are in a position of authority - and by allowing children to swear their inaction is obviously condoning such activity.

Headmaster Alan Large who apparently commented "The reality is that the f word is part of these yyoung adults' everday language" really needs a reality check. If he instructs his teachers to tolerate this language - he is also giving the message to pupils that they can speak this way to anyone - the pensioner on the bus; the checkout girl at the supermarket; the policeman and so on.

Yet again another example of political correctness gone mad.
