The indoctrination of your children


I know a few things about kids. I've got six. As we sit at our dinner table (yes, we are one of the few families who still own one) and table manners are corrected, days reviewed, opinions offered and sought, collective plans made for the summer, problems discussed and addressed, I can spot exactly where the evil little tentacles of Political Officers in schools have been rummaging.

A quick look at an exam paper will tell you that your children are not being taught to process information accurately, not to evaluate, not to question. they are being taught not to think. And then pass exams in not thinking.

The dumbing down of our children is an old Political trick. Under the 13 years of the current Politburo, we have seen a massive increase in the Politicization of our children. Their behaviour is monitored and recorded for "future crimes", the punishments for thinking as an individual are

From 2011, lessons in "gender equality" will become compulsory. Lessons about photosynthesis and the conservation of mass have been replaced with content to promote healthy eating and regular exercise.

We need to reclaim our children's education from the worst possible educator. The State. Fast. It does not have their best interests at heart. At all.

We have become East Germany

PS just for fun, here is GCSE Biology question.

and here is my contribution to the education argument for today:






1. Shuggie has bought half a kilo of cocaine for large. He wants to make 300% on the deal and still pay Mad Malky his 10% protection money. How much must he charge for a gram?

2. Wee Davie reckons he’ll get £42.50 extra Marriage Allowance a week if he ties the knot with Fat Alice. Even if he steals the ring, the wedding will cost him £587. And he’ll have to start buying two fish suppers every night instead of one. How long will it be before Davie wishes he’d stayed single?

3. When Rangers play Celtic, their fans sing The Sash every 10 minutes when they’re winning and every 15 minutes when they’re losing. How many times did they sing it at last season’s Cup Final?

4. Joey and Davie stole a 1999 green Toyota 1600GL with 35,000 on the clock – and got a grand for it. How much more would they have got if it had been metallic silver, done 29,000 miles and had low profile tyres?

5. Jake the Flake and Fingers got grassed up for dealing speed. The Flake got 18 months but Fingers got 3 years. How many more previous convictions did Fingers have?
EXTRA CREDIT: Who was Fingers’ Brief?


Rugby Club…………………………….
Daddy’s Company…………………….

1. Gavin has a spare ticket for Julian Clary at The Festival Fringe. But Benji and Adrian BOTH want to go with him. How long does he cry before giving them the tickets?

2. Half of Peter’s friends say that they went to school with Ewan McGregor. Another third say they were Gordon Brown’s flat mate at University. A sixth say that their dad played rugby with Tony Blair’s dad and the rest say Sean Connery was their milkman. Only one is telling the truth, so how many friends does Peter have?

3. Todd wants to be a lawyer, but is as thick as Edinburgh Castle. His daddy is a Freemason and a QC. How long before Todd becomes the Lord Advocate?

4. Tamsin’s Personal Trainer charges £250 a week, but has sex with her whenever she wants it. Jasmin’s Life Coach charges £50 a week but has refused all sexual advances. Which one of the women weighs 19 stone?

5. Princes Street is 2467 yards long. On average, there is someone begging for money every 195 yards. You walk at 3.1 miles an hour. How long will it take if you tell them all to sod off and work for a living?



1. After Hector’s death, Archie has to pay Death Duty on Glenbogle. With 25,000 acres, Archie must pay £1.76 for the first 15,000 acres and 90p per acre for the remainder, including VAT. How many people actually give a toss?

2. An Afro-American called Zachary Obisanjo Kokobobo asks a Tartan Shop in Inverness if he has any Scottish geneaology. How long does it take to flog him full Highland dress and matching kilts for his wife and 10 kids?

3. If an Aberdeen supporter laid every sheep in Grampian Region end to end, how many people would be surprised?

4. If you caught a Loch Ness Monster 115 feet long and each foot weighed 27lbs, how much money would you make by selling your exclusive story and pictures?

5. Sorry, question 5 has been delayed by heavy snowfall and will be here as soon as the Cockbridge – Tomintoul road re-opens in the spring!

You're not the only one who still sits down to dinner with the kids in the evening. Neither are you the only one who can see what they're doing to kids minds. I'm afraid I've been marked as a 'non compliant' parent. What horrible crime did I commit? Despite filling out on THEIR form that my kids would have packed lunches, I was sent a school dinner list every week and expected to fill it in and return it. Having much better things to do with my time, I politely pointed out the waste of time and resources this exercise was. A couple of days later, I got a call from the HM who first tried to get me to comply and then informed me I was to be marked 'non compliant'. The days PC bullshit the kids get fed is debunked at the tea table - my kids are encouraged to think, to not accept things on face value and to, at all times, ask questions. It's marvellous - the teachers really aren't sure how to handle it, since they've also been taught the benefits of being polite!

mister_choos said...

With reference to the biology question,I think alot of kids these days would struggle to pick between arse and elbow pictures.

Six kids eh? Was it Mrs OH that started making you wear the mask then?

Anonymous said...

Was that a REAL question OH or is it a pisstake?

Dark Lochnagar said...

Six Kids. you are a horny old Holborn! For God's sake man get a vasectomy. The country can't afford your child support.

Obnoxio The Clown said...

And there's me worrying about dumbing down of education.

Nick2 said...

That GCSE Biology question is shocking - wonder how many marks were assigned to it?

I agree with you about dumbing down of UK ejukation - but it was ever thus. My father took school certificates (i.e. a set of exams issued by his school rather than O levels written by an examination board) - during my school days he'd continually say how narrow & shallow my (Oxford & Cambridge Exam Board) O levels were by comparison.

Yeh OH, I bet you get one big monthly chq into your missus account for thewm six kids. Plus an extras. No wonder you want to be an MP. You can then employ all of them as researchers. Plus your missus as secreatry.

When will it all end!

Fuck Voting for anyone...

So your kids haven't yet been brainwashed that Manmade Global Warming is a "fact"?

microdave said...

Never mind whether the biology question was a piss-take or not. How could it depict a MAN'S head and still comply with gender equality laws???

Old Holborn said...

It wasn't a man. It was a mixed race gender reassigned Lesbian.

Carry on

My nose contains receptors sensitive to bullshit.

'non compliant' = unmutual.

denverthen said...

Very fecund. And there was me wondering where all those Brownie tax credits were going.

Road_Hog said...

"Politicization"? It seems that OH is a product of NuLabour education. Your end of year reports says, "Must try harder". One hundred lines please, of 'It is spelt Politicisation, I am not an American".

Angry Exile said...

Lessons in healthy eating and exercise? Very strength through joy!

RantinRab said...

The state doesn't want clever people. They just want compliant drones.

My eight year old brother in law can barely read or write but it's not a problem according to the 'teachers' but he is very good at being 'kind to others'.

Our children are being groomed by the state: fingerprinting for the canteen and the library, for instance; our children will put up with invasion of privacy as the norm.

Anonymous said...

My kids are under strict instructions to refer anyone wanting samples of hair, fingerprints, or anything else to me. Without giving said samples. And yes, it is a form of grooming, and they're not bloody well doing it to my kids.

Rab, my third child (there's 5 in total) has a learning and behavioural problem. When we lived in Leicester they refused to even acknowledge that she has a problem, let alone do something about it. It's only since we moved a rural area with a much smaller school that she's had the help she needs to get sorted out learning wise. She's up to date now, from being 2yrs behind when we got here. Make a HUGE fuss about it. Complain to the papers, OFSTED, your MP (yes, I know), and the parent/governers board. If you don't make a fuss, it won't happen for the poor lad.

Gendeau said...

Can we see the 5, 6, 7 or 8 questions required to get a pass?

I'd love to be able to show Tarquin/Chardonney/Spudulika's proud parents what (s)he's been 'learnt' by nulabas schools, that we'll be paying for for the next 20-30 years

Zaphod Camden said...

Road Hog - you need to get a more up to date dictionary I'm afraid. The Oxford English Dictionary states that both -ise AND -ize are allowable in British English. As long as you exclusively use one or the other, they are both valid.

Oxford prefers -ize, but Cambridge prefers -ise. So are you a dark blue or a light blue? :)

My eight year got full marks on the question. I suppose that means the rest of his school days will be spent being brain washed now he has the basics mastered.

Antipholus Papps said...

Strictly speaking, if a word has Greek origins the suffix is -ize, if Latin, -ise.

418 said...

Flippin' 'eck, Antipholus Papps: some words have both Latin and Greek origins!

Awkward Bastard non compliant parent said...

We have a dinner table and use it for all meals.Meals with the kids are an important time because you can find out what shit has been taught during the day.It then gives you a chance to rectify the balance somewhat in favour of the "non compliant parents".
I am sure I have got a big file at the school/education department marked "awkward bastard"but I dont give a fuck.My aim is to upset at least one right on marxist man hating lesbo a day and I like to feel I do it with style.

Antipholus Papps said...


Then use whichever one floats your boat! If in doubt, make up a new word - it's what Samuel Johnson would have done.

A warning from Scotland. Beware of our Curriculum for Excellence.

Scotland seems to be the testing ground for a lot of things these days:

Anonymous said...

First of all, the offspring of human beings are called CHILDREN. Goats have kids.

Home Educators are WAY ahead of all of you.

We eat breakfast lunch and dinner together. Our children can cook.

Our children do not suffer from the appalling brainwashing that goes on in schools.

Our children do better at exams than schooled children, and we do not take the dumbed down GCSE exams, we take the IGCSE which is closer to the O Level as it used to be.

Our children are better socialized, better behaved and have better jobs. Our children are first in the queue for places at university. Our children work harder and better.

We do not receive tick box forms from schools to complete regarding what prison food (Sodhexho we want our children to be poisoned with.

Our children are natural, smart, curious, clear thinking, free minded and vastly superior to children who go to school.

We learn actual science, maths, English history, logic and foreign languages. We do not follow the state curriculum. Our children are innocent.

That is why the state wants to outlaw Home Education; it produces, by default, enemies of the state.

That is why the state wants all Home Educators registered, following the state curriculum, monitored and controlled.

We are having none of it.

What is Old Holborn's platform position on Home Education?

When you get into the house, will you vote against any bill that contains measures that destroy our right to educate our children as we see fit?

I was trying to find out more information about my son's Maths GCSE curriculum. I found the website of the examining board and was shocked to see the following in their Maths GCSE Specification:

"Spiritual, moral, ethical, social, cultural and environmental issues, health and safety considerations and the European dimension"

What have sociological, ethical and ... EUROPEAN! considerations got to do with teaching our children how to count?!

I then started looking at other exam boards and all of them had very similar "ideological" clauses in their specs, see the list of the specs from the different exam boards below.

Maths is probably the purest form of abstract study. Teaching Maths should have NO relation to political ideology!!

It reminds you of George Orwell's 1984 where the state coerces a character to convince himself that "2+2=5".

So, how soon before we have a new clause in our Maths GCSE specifications saying:

"If big brother Gordon is making his income forcasts then 2+2=5"

"If big brother Gordon is making his debt forcasts then 2+2=3"

And it isn't just Maths, I searched the Physics specs and they contain these clauses as well.

List of Maths GCSE Specifications

Search for the word "europe":

AQA - Mathematics 4306 - Specification A - 2010

AQA - Mathematics 4307 - Specification B (Modular) - 2010

Edexcel Maths GCSE (Modular 2381)

Edexcel Maths GCSE (Linear 1380)

OCR - GCSE - Mathematics A - J562

OCR - GCSE - Mathematics B - J567

Updated warning from Scotland:

"For the first time since Margaret Thatcher’s assault on the comprehensive system in the early 1980s, it would appear that the two countries have a similar vision of the curriculum.

Quote: A visit to the national curriculum website ( indicates that not only has the new framework in England incorporated many of the aims and principles of CfE, but, with the benefit of having looked at our documents, it has come up with some of the elements which are implicit in ours."

I posted this on the 29th:

To put a Scottish spin on this...and horribly oversimplify:

Our new Curriculum for Excellence is an intrinsic component of Getting it right for every child(Girfec)

AKA Gathering information for every citizen (Girfec).


is only the start of the "single view of the citizen" that that eCare framework will store

Think frame 17 puts us firmly in our place...

Anyway, back to "education" and the CfE if anyone is still awake

PS Scotland seems to be the testing ground for all manner of things these days
