Social workers stifle debate
Defensive lot the social work industry. A hackette scribbles a piece for the Guardian in which she vilifies the bloggers who attack the social work industry. No links are provided to any of the blogs and when the bloggers themselves arrive to defend their work the comments they leave are deleted. Needless to say, your friendly old Exile has enjoyed himself playing cat and mouse with the censors under several monickers, the most notable being one nicked from an old mate and commentator here, one Nick Urzdown. The silly sods haven't yet twigged that corny joke but never mind.
What is going on is quite straightforward. The social work industry and its allies do not want a debate about the future of the industry. It is the one debate that terrifies them because all we need to do is point to the fact that the average social worker is nothing but a semi-educated lump of lower middle class shit with a poly degree. David Cameron has already attacked the teaching trade for its low standards so the last thing that our social work friends want is for their lumpen educational standards to become a matter for public discourse.
So let's have this debate shall we? Why should public money be poured into the pockets of social work inbreds? Let them go and do something commensurate with their abilities, for instance asking simple questions such as:
"Do you want chips with that burger?"
Update, 25 March 2010, 11.45am:
The Guardian has closed comments for this piece after so many bloggers and their supporters charged in and basically took over the site. The social work vermin were being hit from all sides and the Guardian had to delete literally hundreds of comments, then close the comments down, just to allow those cockroaches to save face.
