Apologies

    Nick Gibb, the Schools Minister:

    "We apologise to nobody for finding solutions – even at the eleventh hour – to stop any student being disadvantaged by this system."

    Considering the chaos and carnage of the system's meltdown all around him, I wondered for what, exactly, Mr Gibb might one day apologise.

    Gavin Williamson, the Education Secretary:

    "... I apologise to every single child right across the country for the disruption that they've had to suffer."

    Will Mr Gibb now apologise for not apologising?

    It would be a farce if it wasn't so sad.

    Slap ‘em all on capability, that’s what I say....MASSIVE BUNCH OF DROOLING BUFFOONS! Look at then all. Gibb. Gav. Great-Uncle Damien. I wouldn’t gjve them a half day night shift job in the Sports Direct stock room. Which is, I fear, where they think they are working. Blundering twits.

    It is tragically sad and remains simultaneously farcical. Awful.

    Nick "We apologise to nobody" Gibb now in charge of Gold Command, whatever that might be.

    A little like Vlad the Impaler being put in charge of the blood transfusion service.

    Now Nick "We apologise to nobody" Gibb is in charge of the old Command, whatever that might be.

    A little like Vlad the Impaler being in charge of the blood transfusion service?

    In the words of Maurice Chevalier, "I'm glad I'm not young anymore".

    ROFL! So true! Are there any game websites as was the case with Gove? That was the only thing I liked about him being education secretary. :) The website in question was brilliant for catharsis! :)

    If you happen to have any spare cash, perhaps a wager on Jeremy Hunt as the next Education Secretary might be worthwhile.
