State-Funded Leftists

Are there any other kinds ? Cobbett takes a look at one of my pet themes, the way that a large chunk of left political activity is effectively taxpayer-funded.

He checks out some of the people involved in the British educational disaster.

I think it's fair to say that a lecturer in media studies who claimed - and taught - that the British media was in hock to International Jewry would (rightly IMHO) find his position difficult. Yet apparently it's perfectly OK to run a course premised on the 'fact' that UK education is:

'under the influence of international capitalist organisations and protocols such as the IMF,WTO, World Bank and the GATS (General Agreement in Trade and Services).'


If the performance of British state schools is any guide I think it more likely that it's under the influence of the Economics ministries of China and India.




PS - I don't think it's this Dave Hill. Nor this one. Hat-tip - Guardian Apostate.

I don't agree. The Economic Ministries of China and India are doing a bang up job of heaving their countries forward.

The British educational establishment is in the thrall of long out-dated, musty old communism that the rest of the world jettisoned years ago.

Verity old girl, I think LT was being ironic. ie China & India are running our education system to screw up our economies.
