How Nu-Labour continues to alienate people
When I first read the story of a taxi driver who failed to renew his license because he failed the English grammar section of a test I thought that it was yet another Daily Mail special. However, the more I think about it, the more convinced I am that the tale just happens to be true - and this is another reason why Nu-Labour is heading for the scrapheap.
Basically what happened was that Lawrence Kirk (50) failed a test which aimed, according to a council pen-pusher to "assess the candidate's abilities and understanding to enable us to offer the right support in order to fulfil the further requirements in gaining their licence. These include a local knowledge test as well as the BTEC required by the council."
Translated into simple English, this is about providing jobs for lower middle class thickoes with their poly degrees. Get 'em through a teaching certificate and then turn 'em loose to make everyone else's life a misery.
As I have said before, the Tories, if they have any sense, will jump on bandwagons like this and promise to repeal all the legislation that only exists to allow poly wallahs to feel important.
