When I was at SGS we had a useless French teacher (ie. a teacher of French. He was actually a Manc).
He would do anything other than teach us the subject. On the day after the 1968 European Cup Final he spent the whole lesson discussing Man Utd’s triumph. I also remember another session spent talking about the violence in films like the Warren Beatty/Fay Dunaway Bonnie & Clyde.
At the end of the lesson he would still give us homework, then bollock us for not doing it properly!
He would have made a great Tory minister as that’s basically what they do. Tell us how great they are. What we’re doing wrong and what they’re going to do to put it right (whether we want it or not) and then scold us all for protesting.
Whilst all the time they dodge the real issues. But hey-ho! As long as we can say “Aw, look at the Queen. Isn’t the old girl lovely?” Or display a rectangle of fabric dedicated to three Christian martyrs in a country where only 37% of the population believe in a “God” everything will be okay.
