    Regardless, looking at your profile you got great grades and I'm pretty sure that I, yourself and many others would consider you a success of the education system. I just find it pathetic that obviously privileged, silver spoon middle class kids on this forum are mocking people who are uneducated and didn't have the opportunities in life that they had.

    If some poor kid, by the age of 10, can't do simple mathematics, it's not something to mock, it's an issue that needs to be addressed. It's not funny, and even if he is obviously wrong, mocking/judging the kid isn't the right path. I see that in the same light as people like the guy in the video posted.
    If I've got good grades then it goes to show that people from the working class can still excel at education. And although this forum (as I've noticed) does consist of a lot of students from good backgrounds or students who excel at education, this forum is not the only place where the EDL is judged.

    When I think EDL or BNP I don't think uneducated, although I do think ignorant, and I don't think poor. I see them as racist and violent groups of people, I don't think you can excuse that by saying "they're uneducated". A murderer in court wouldn't be let off because he flunked his A-levels.

    This is hillarious. Saying that, Press TV is basically the mouthpiece for the Iranian regime so although he was probably unaware of it he might have been making a point.

    I'm siding with nobody on this issue - IMO you're probably a bunch of Tory-voting middle class kids on an internet forum judging clearly uneducated working class people. I really wonder who the trash are.
    I am quite sure there are middle class idiots in the EDL along with work cless idiots in the EDL, oh and I have never voted for the conservatives.
