Is this Labour policy?

As most readers will know on a Thursday evening i sit down to watch BBC Question Time.

Each Thursday evening we are treated to the brightest and best political commentators and elected (and unelected) politicians to debate the subjects that are current affairs. Every now and then you get a insight into a certain parties thinking and policy direction.

This week step forward Labour spokeswoman Emily Thornberry who, while talking about the coalitions education policy she slipped this little gem out.

It seems that Labour policy is that children should not be taught the names of Kings and Queens of England.

One might also wonder other things they would like not be taught to children, namely always leaving office when they have run out of other peoples money maybe?

  1. People always tell me that the Labour party were a failure. I disagree. They've been incredibly successful in destroying our education system, brainwashing our children and ensuring any remnants of history are removed from the text books.

    No surprises here. None whatsoever.

  2. Very funny Billy.

    Straight out of 1984, the business of re-writing history to change perceptions. It's easy to forget where you come from if you don't know where you are.

    QT is a scary show often times!
