    Surely nobody actually read this bill? I didn't get past the third sentence.

    "5) If the parents have a BTEC qualification minus 20 points will be allocated."

    Thought I would pick on this one part to just show how ridiculous this entire bill is. Lots of people have BTECs, I have BTECs in PE and citizenship, the first one as I didn't take PE GCSE and we had to take PE till the end of year 11 and citizenship as it is what the school offered.

    Now I could go through the entire bill, but I feel that would be a waste of everyone's time

    This bill is aiming to destroy the values of acceptance and equality and it hopes to establish a class based world reminiscent of 1984 and the French Estates.

    Lol no. I could go through this bill and explain what is wrong with literally every single section, but I really can't be bothered.

    Lots of reasons, one of which is denying the Royal Family the ability to meet whom they like.

    I read a good three quarters of it at least, it was quite interesting, if worrying, to see just how far it goes

    Right enough I have a few BTECs too, for the reason only, I'd vote no.

    As I have said in the Skype chat, one good way of determining the quality of a school is by seeing whether there is gum underneath the desks and whether you see signs on vandalism. The behaviour of the students tells a lot. Also, if it is a school where you can see public displays of affection, it is probably a bad school.

    Every school in the UK has gum under seats.

    Not true, especially the ones that ban gum in classrooms.

    As TBM said I've never been to a school, no matter how posh or not, that hasn't had gum under their desks and chairs. As for public displays of affection, they are pretty rare in any school but where there are teenagers there will be pda, it's not an epidemic of the lower/working classes

    This is a sad reflection of the lack of discipline being taught in most state schools, and even many private schools are plagued with this problem!

    Our country's education system is in serious trouble. We don’t have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don’t have them. When was the last time anybody saw us beating, let’s say, China in the level of knowledge taught to students? They kill us.

    When did we beat Japan in PISA overall performance? They beat us all the time. They're laughing at us - at our incompetence.

    It's true. And students with such lack of discipline - they aren't the brightest and the finest. When you look at some of our students, you can immediately tell they aren't our best. We've got students that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems to other students. They're using drugs. They're committing crime. They're sexual deviants. And some, I assume, are good students.

    But I speak to parents, and they tell us what we're getting. And it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense.

    We need to improve our education system, ensure we get the best grades in the world, and make sure our students behave again! We used to have one of the best education systems in the world, and nobody taught discipline better than in Victorian times.

    Sadly, our education system is in terrible shape, thanks to our stupid politicians.

    But if I become Prime Minister, I will bring education back bigger and better and stronger than ever before, and we will make our schools great again!
