Nicky 'no reverse gear' Morgan stuck in a cul-de-sac

    By declaring there is no going back on the academisation of schools Nicky Morgan has closed down her options of a tactical retreat. This government has done enough U-turns from Gove's abandoning of EBCs, Osbo's well publicised budget reversals and so the list goes on. As any motorist knows, a reverse gear is very handy.

    I'm not sure Mor-gove-an is actually at the steering wheel. Gideon is pushing things along, I'm sure with much some sweet words from lobbyists...

    Morgan is just cheerleading things along... the public face of government policy.

    I agree but it will be her neck on the block when things go t#ts up. As I've said on other threads, she's positioning herself for a move in the post referendum reshuffle so whether she'll be there to carry the can is debatable.

    Oh entirely but I suspect by the time the country wakes up to the disaster she'll have moved on.

    Perhaps she wants a fight?

    Provoke us, beat us, then become Prime Minister.

    Even the Tories are not that silly?

    A female Tory education secretary who becomes Prime Minister?

    Never heard of such a thing.

    When Maggie stopped free school milk schoolkids chanted ' Margaret Thatcher milk snatcher'. Perhaps teachers could chant 'Nicky Morgan Tory Gorgon'.

    I know this is pathetic but you try and find something that rhymes with Morgan!

    Well the classical allusions might raise educational standards...

    Which is more than The Gorgon has achieved.

    Wonder if there is anything which rhymes easily with 'academisation'.

    Hey Nicky, you're so blind,
    You're so blind you blow my mind,
    Hey Nicky!

    I remember the original song!
  16. Shedman

    Shedman Star commenter

    OK here goes:

    'Nicky Morgan inadequate thinking organ'

    Probably worse than the original!

    That's an easy one:

    'Academisation privatisation'
