    If this is "true" and not "fake news"...

    I suppose once upon a time some might be held accountable...

    Thing this, the market is always right.. anyone who dares to question the will of the people is a traitor.

    He’s a MAT CEO fgs, you wouldn't expect him to be anywhere near actual children in or out of term time.

    Ofsted reports and ratings for schools are now in the same category as the support programmes or capability proceedings many teachers are forced to go through. No one in the front line of education takes either seriously or considers them to have any links to reality anymore.

    Not true judging by the way new policies are being pushed through every CPD and inset day!
    they make sarcastic comments and roll their eyes pretending to be one with workforce.......whilst still pushing the agenda and increasing workload.....

    Very true. GoneOFSTED would describe the Tory party as ‘good, with many areas of administrative excellence.’ It is all such bull. Let me provide a metaphorical analogy. Imagine a person who happens to be a bit overweight. A tad lardy. Who cares? Not me. But then some twit, probably from the Baltic lands, fat shames them on Twitter, attacking away, slice slice slice. I would admire the overweight person for a comeback which was open and honest, like “Ok, am a bit lardy, so what, i can shed fat but social media bullies are stuck that way”, but no. Instead they say things like : “ I accept that I might be considered by some to be nudging towards a higher BMI ratio than is perhaps the national target, but I am committed to healthy eating and living and my government will do all it can to support and encourage others who are committed to patterns of eating and living.” Er...what? What does this flannel mean? You hear it all the time now on the radio and tv. Empty, meaningless, oblique flannelling. When all the public want to hear is the political equivalent of “Yeah I’m fat, it’s a pain, there’s worse things to be, deal with it.”
    I am now replacing ‘bell’ with ‘flannel’ as my new insult term of choice!
