And here is some more BS - children being brainwashed and told Christian scary stories as fact, thanks to Stephen Yarde for the link.

ANGER LEVELS AT AN UNCONTOLABLE LEVEL. TOTAL BRAIN MELTDOWN. This is possible the most depressing thing I have ever seen.

One day, some of these poor children are going to realise what has been done to them and when they do I hope they confront an aged Tony Blair and make it quite clear that it was him that made this abuse possible. One would like to think that it we weigh on him, like chains around the neck of Jacob Marley, but on past record that seems unlikely. And as for Ofsted inspectors, remind me, what is it that they are for exactly?

Maybe they can get together and successfully arrest blair and get him on trial for war crimes as he should be, instead of counting his estimated £40m net worth like the good socialist he isn't. He is of course still doing more damage on a daily basis with his poking his nose into religion worldwide.

Ofsted inspectors, like almost all public sector appointments/jobs, are to lower unemployment and gerrymander votes.

Daniel's response is what I would have thought every sane and caring person would have. But obviously politicians don't have that response so we need to find a way of getting under their skin somehow. Let's see what Jonny Scramange comes back to us with - it's something we need to jump all over and must be one of the main focusses for LAAG.

Just done a further 3ff training for visiting primary schools in order to try to spread a little rationality. Catch 'em young1

And our State validates and even funds this. Here is something our friend Jonny Scaramanga posted on his blog today "I am officially heartbroken" ( Chris, not sure you have heard of him but he is an activist against these schools, having suffered a breakdown himself during his time at one, and now runs a support group too. He came and talked to us before you had joined LAAG)

"I am officially heartbroken. I was walking around the neighborhood with my special needs kid. Trying to come up with a way to spend more quality time together, I said, “Let’s do a song on Garage Band or something.” The kid went tense.

Me: “What’s wrong?”

Kid: [Sullen] “I don’t know.”

Me: “Rephrasing: you went tense when I said ‘lets do a song.’ What made you tense about that?”

Kid: “I’m afraid to be creative, ok?”

Me: “Why? You’re so smart and inventive and fascile.”

Kid: [Tense and sullen] “I don’t know.”

Me: “We’ll try it again: At what point did you STOP liking being creative?”

Kid: “It was ACE.”

Me: [Flustered] “Why? How? How is that possible?”

Kid: “It’s true.”

Me: “Of course it is. We’re talking about feelings. If you feel something, it’s real to you. I believe you. You just loved to create, and now…I’m just shocked.”

Kid: “There were a lot of rules, and if you deviate from them you’re going to hell.”

Me: “Did they actually tell you that?”

Kid: “No. It just seemed like that from the PACEs.”

Me: “And that made you feel frightened of your own creativity?”

Kid: “Yeah.”

Me: [Long pause]

Kid: “Are you ok, dad?”

Me: “Dammit. Sorry to curse, but dammit, dammit, dammit, dammit.”

Kid: “I’m sorry.”

Me: “It’s not your fault. I knew the school was for suck educationally. Well, that’s not true. I didn’t know HOW sub par it was, but I figured it was below average. I just wanted you to get some socialization, be around kids your own age, have some damn friends other than just your mom and grandmom and me, and, you know, get used to being around other people. I just wanted you to have…”

Kid: “I know.”

Me: “I never in a million years figured they could take that away from a person.”

Kid: “I feel it’ll get better. It will come back. Distance.”

Me: “Still….dammit to hell.”

Kid: “You didn’t know. It’s ok.”

Me: [Long pause] “Ok, so let’s start slow. Let’s just go back to the house and start playing with some little musical bits and stick things together and see if they sound good. Doesn’t have to be a song. Doesn’t have to evolve into a song. Just playing.”

Kid: [Says nothing]

Me: “Or we could just sing along with the radio? No pressure, work our way up from there?”

Kid: [Nods]

So: I am officially heartbroken."

FFFFFS. This hideous bullshit in the UK, endorsed by the government. Evolution false because yes. Earth is 6000 years old. In Darwin's home country. I bet they teach Abraham had tea with dinosaurs.

Anger level over 9000!

I know. It's an absolute disgrace that these schools are not only permitted but seem to be positively encouraged by the previous Blair government and this present one.

Here is something our friend Jonny Scaramanga posted on his blog today "I am officially heartbroken" ( Chris, not sure you have heard of him but he is an activist against these schools, having suffered a breakdown himself during his time at one, and now runs a support group too.

No, I haven't heard of him but he sounds very interesting. I wish I could have heard his talk at LAAG.
