"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Ken Baker: Get Britain Working

In the 'Get Britain Working' session this afternoon Ken Baker (former Education Secretary under Thatcher & now Lord Baker of Dorking) announced the creation of university-sponsored Technical Colleges.  Each college will cater for around 600 x 14-18yr olds half of whom will be apprentices chosen 'on the basis of aptitude and commitment' and half will be students who will be able to  'select themselves'.  As well as practical work,  maths, science, English and IT will be taught.  About time too.
"As Shakespeare said, the fire in the flint shows not til it be struck.   The purpose of these colleges is to find that flint and strike a spark.  We will have them and we must have them."
Here you go you bigoted, country-destablising Labour government of lickspittles:
