Something else I mean’t to blog about for a while, and only just not gotten around to it:
If you want to improve A-Levels + education in general, why do you want them being taught about an idiot with a beard who’s mostly famous for shagging American pop star Katy Perry + sending funny phone calls to Manuel from Fawlty Towers, as well as writing books described as being full of complete crap?
I have a much better idea – teach them about Jeremy Clarkson instead. He may often get slagged off as being an idiot, but just like Boris Johnson is actually way cleverer than many people give him credit for as you may have observed when he’s gone moonlighting from Top Gear and made documentaries on The Victoria Cross, the raid on St. Nazaire, the PQ17 Arctic Convoy + on Isambard Kingdom Brunel. His writings are equally as good, and I should know because I’ve been reading them since I was about 11 years old (and I’m now weeks away from my 36th Birthday), and much of it beats the crap out of reading Shakespeare as he goes on about all kinds of stuff from Wine to Socks to Music to what goes on on Britain’s roads, before he eventually gets around to writing about the car he was supposed to be reviewing…. previews of hisbooks are available via Amazon’s KINDLE service if you want to find out for yourselves.
In addition to the writings of the Clarkson, I believe they should also make the writings of Breitbart London gaffer James Delingpole (also a Clarkson fan from what I can tell) part of the curriculum with his blog posts + books “Watermelons” + “The Little Green Book of Eco-Fascism” top reads.
Thirdly they should include the writings of Daniel Hannan, the Conservative MEP who’s written books including “How We Invented Freedom & Why it Matters” as well while they’re at it.
Maybe then kids might actually learn something, and it’d maybe also save the Police a bloody fortune in riot control equipment.
And instead of teaching them about Dizzee Rascal (who?), I’m developping a hunch it may actually be a better idea to teach them about American country/pop star Taylor Swift instead, as the 25-yr old creator of songs including Love Story, Never Grow Up, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, Shake it Off + many others (including 100’s more she hasn’t even published) as she’d be a way better influence + is also more up to date in terms of popularity with the kids (and I’ve also noticed it looks like Madonna + other stars young & old are becoming big fans too).
