Normally, I don't get really riled. Doesn't matter what I get dealt, I get somewhere between mildly frustrated and furious. But I just read something which made my hands shake and the veins in my neck stick out.
I guess it's to do with everything getting slowly but surely more stupid, so I'm not really surprised any more.
I just gandered Old Holborn's piece about Poverty, and I had to agree that he speaks the truth. You might as well not do anything, and let the state provide. So some think.
But this really did it for me. The Mail did it better but I wanted to avoid the Mail link, because people shout "racist" every time I quote the Mail.
Kids can only go on these trips if they're disadvantaged, that being measured by whether their parents are on benefits such that the kids get school meals.
And, unsurprisingly, the Department for Children, Schools, Families, Propaganda and Control declined to comment.
That's because the only comment they could possibly make is "yes, I'm afraid we're just a band of cunts."
Anyone up for arranging some trips for kids whose parents choose to get of their arses?
