Out Of The Mouths Of Babes…

When the kids have rumbled the flaw in your grand plan, you know you’ve lost…

Pupil Jake Phillips, 15, said that “speakeasies” are starting up selling the prohibited drinks. “There is business potential now there’s a gap in the market,” he said.“Gangsters sold alcohol in America when that was banned. Prohibition always leads to supply and demand. That means anyone who sneaks it in can make a lot of money.”

I guess Prohibition wasn’t covered in the schools where headmistress Armitage was educated?

Headteacher Jo Armitage said: “Schools are responsible for showing young people that their own behaviour impacts on their health. We are extremely proud to be Camden’s first water-only school.”

Well, I’m sure you are oh-so-proud of the glowing OFSTED reports you get for ‘citizenship’ but your pupils have taught YOU a valuable lesson, haven’t they?

    “Never drink water, fish fuck in it!”

    One of the funniest things I’ve heard for a long time.
    How can someone supposedly educated be so stupid, unless they were an ex-“games” teacher is beyond me.

      Having watched some documentaries on the Eden Channel to mark ‘Australia Day’ yesterday, it’s not the fish you need to worry about – it’s the coral reefs!

    Hell, we could quote a lot of WC Fields here too.

    Sam Blundell, also 15, said: “What’s the point of banning sugary drinks, but not sugary or fatty foods?

    To quote DP quoting Crampton:

    “It’s like a bunch of folks on the scaffolds complaining that the other guy’s noose isn’t quite tight enough. Y’all might instead direct your attention to the hangman sometime and try helping each other cut those ropes.”

    Once you push the kids to the point where they start bringing in contraband who knows what will be brought in to the school? Drop of Vodka or Gin in that glass mate?

    The head teacher is clearly a cretin who likes her own power too much.

      I think that must be a key competency on the job spec…
