It looks like a good buy. I can't wait to try it...
Oh, hang on. Excuse me a minute. I think that was a knock at the door.
Helen Huntley, headteacher of Haybrook College, which Millside is linked to, said: 'We apologise if the boy’s mother is upset.''If'..? 'If'?!?
'But we have a duty of care and, although there was no weapon, if we hadn't taken action and there had been, the consequences could have been devastating.'I very much doubt it, for you. It never seems to happen to public sector workers, no matter how badly they screw up, does it?
So just so we're clear, real, genuine Muslims actually preying on young white girls = 'nothing to see hear, can't jump to conclusions'. Little Johnny discussing his XBox games = ''ellom, 'ello, 'ello, what do we 'ave 'ere then?'
Is that about how it goes now?
which specialises in teaching children with behavioural problems
There is a euphemism here. All of the children will have had various difficulties. Some of them will have solved those difficulties in ways which are not wholly within the law and may reflect circumstances in their family backgrounds.
The missing piece of the jigsaw is why exactly the teacher was so panicked, such that the police went to the trouble of obtaining warrants and setting up response parties.
I bet there are relevant facts missing from the story.
I defer to your considerable wisdom Ms Raft but I am reminded of that ruined performance at the Globe, when two plod gatecrashers jumped on stage to handcuff Macbeth during Act 2.
I'm so tempted to walk past a few schools, police stations and such like with a papier-mâché Atom Bomb. You know, a balloon sized and shaped object*, painted black, with the words A-Bomb written on the side. Just to see what happens?
* Oooops. Did I just reveal the designs of the UK nuclear weapon to Iran?
Ms Raft, Here's a little tale for you, my young un went to a "Special school", and one day he and his friend were talking and out bullshitting each other.
Now baring in mind my attitude to alcohol and children, it's they can have a wine spritzer with the Sunday dinner or the occasional half a bitter on an evening. Now by "children", the young un was in his early to mid teens at the time, and not an infant.
The story went with my young un telling his mate his dad (me) allowed him half a bitter the night before, his mate trumped him with he was allowed a pint. This went on until by the time they'd finished, we had wild drinking parties, and he'd downed a bottle and half of vodka the previous weekend.
Teacher overhearing this felt the need to inform social services on me, as they had "concerns".
Now I could understand if the lads were regularly attending school hung over and stinking like a tap room, but that had never happened.
Cue the visit from some chippy social worker straight out of college, who'd never had kids, but was an expert in how to raise them, making threats that they'll be monitoring them, and anymore reports like this and they'll be taken off us.
After listening to this, it was my turn. Cue the "This conversation has been taped, I want to speak to your supervisor, and best you fuck off right now before I put my foot up your arse".
Her jaw just dropped, she picked up her crap and left. I received a letter a few weeks later, telling me no further action would be taken, but with the veiled threat of "But if we receive anymore reports of concern..."
After she left, I rang the school wanting to speak to the headmaster, the receptionist said "What's it about?" like she didn't know. From then on, the head was never available, and had to make do with the deputy/year head. Not a problem really, as they were always sound, unlike the tosser of a head.
Can't help thinking that the 'Muslims actually preying on young white girls' was about to upset the last Govt's multicultural apple-cart and that the order to sweep it under the carpet as far as that was possible, came from the top..
"There is a euphemism here."
I did rather wonder..
"You know, a balloon sized and shaped object*, painted black, with the words A-Bomb written on the side. "
Is this the sort of thing you mean? ;)
"Her jaw just dropped, she picked up her crap and left. I received a letter a few weeks later, telling me no further action would be taken..."
With the rise of smartphones, I wonder that more don't tape these people. I know it'd be my first thought in any official State encounter.
"...and that the order to sweep it under the carpet as far as that was possible, came from the top.."
Could be. But never subscribe to organised conspiracy when independent mutual interest will do the trick..
Is this the sort of thing you mean? ;)
Hahahhahahahha. That made me laugh. But yeah :-D
Who knew Fisher Price were making IEDs now? How modern of them.
