Does it matter who´s at the helm...... The Tories are in for the foreseeable future.....Labour don`t stand a chance of ever getting back in.....And the UK is definately coming out of the EU.

So suck it up.........Suckers. :lol: :lol:

You've constantly been blaming Jimbo for that , haven't you.

But the truth is , that neither Jimbo and I have made so many political posts of pure garbage , like you have Mrs Nelson.
The same old , same old ....it's been going on for years .
Most members reading your "contributions" have probably lost the "will to live" ! :lol:

Don`t waste your breath Duncan.

If you have a differing view to Nasty Nelly, or support a different political party, he implies that you`re incompetent... and just trawl back through his rubbish and you`ll see that he`s called people much worse. That says a lot about him as well.

Nasty by name, nasty by nature.

Yes ! That's true . Mrs Nelson has never had much support regarding her "ramblings", so , i guess not many members consider the chaos in the late 1970's - as the "good old day's ", like she does ! :D

Pete , you ( like the rest of us ) have to make allowances for Mrs Nelson .
She constantly talks in riddles , and most of the time , we haven't a clue as to what she's on about !
The only conselation is ...Mrs Nelson hasn't a clue what she's on about either . :lol: :lol: :lol:

Mrs Nelson, you may not be aware of this, but budget shortages in schools have been going on for decades. One of my daughters in law, after graduating with her teaching degree over twenty years ago, got he first job as a primary school teacher in a primary school in Hertfordshire.

She was asked to attend a day's briefing prior to the beginning of the new school year, at which she was informed that due to budget constraints that she would be expected to provide pens, paper and other student requirements at her own expense; she was never reimbursed for any of her outlays in the year that she stayed there. The following September she was recruited to teach at a private school, where she was not only paid nearly double the salary, but she was also not required to fund the purchase of materials for the pupils.

But to be fair, a lot of these budgetary problems are the responsibility of the school heads. She is now a teacher in a state school up north, and the head teacher manages the budget responsibly meaning that all basic requirements are met. It's a good, well run school from where my granddaughter (and now my grandson) went on to the local grammar school, and she achieved 10 very good passes at GCSE, and is now studying for her A levels.

Rape and murder have been going on for ages old boy, however that does not make it acceptable does it.


I don't claim that it is acceptable. My point was that this is not something new, and maybe it is the particular school/s that need to be closely examined to see that it/they are being managed well.

Another point that needs to be made, as well. Head teachers have, for donkeys' years, been asking for more autonomy and less centralised control (via the County Councils). This has been in place for a few years now having been introduced during the coalition government's time in office, and it is therefore the responsibility of the heads to ensure that the students' needs are met from the budget that is set.

At the moment, it is evident that certain schools within a budgetary control area are struggling whilst their opposite numbers in the same area are managing well on the same budgetary terms. In essence, it all comes down to the management skills of the different school head teachers. And they are paid pretty well for the task, too. Most of them are on six figure salaries, with some of them getting paid more than the PM.

There you have it Duncan. .... You're a penniless Tory pensioner. :D

Perhaps you should also own two properties and rent one of them out, but that would make you a Socialist and a Capitalist at the same time.

That would also make you a leftie hypocrite.

' For the working class the question is usually to find somewhere to rent or to buy on mortgage. In both cases money in the form of rent or interest goes to the owners of capital.'

I rather think I know what you'd rather be. :D :D

At least you'd be honest with yourself and what you believe in, unlike others on here.
