How Not to Teach
If you thought reading Gervaise Phinn was like drinking a warm cup of tea this book will knock you over with the force of a vodka slammer. Mr Read survives the nightmare of planning, Ofsted and his headteacher... he also takes the class to Ireland, the House of Commons and wins a film award. We guarantee Christmas Lights, The School Trip and Stressbusters will make you laugh out loud. A searing assault on our joyless, exam ridden primary curriculum... 'it will take a bare knuckle fight to save its soul.'

Bosses of climate change research centre travel by private jet

18-10-2006 12:48

I thought you might find the news below of interest and like to share it with your colleagues and supporters. The bosses of the National Oceanographic Centre in Southampton, which undertakes important climate change research, recently flew to a meeting in the US in a private jet. Staff that I know who work on climate change at the Centre are disgusted by this, but there is little they can do from the inside. So we would really appreciate it if you could spread the word and anyone who feels strongly might like to write a letter or email as suggested.

The Right manipulates the Left...again

18-10-2006 11:59

The Armenian genocide of WWI has been talked about in left circles quite a bit lately, much to the delight of reactionary lawmakers trying to whip up anti-Islam sentiment. Robert Fisk, a professional radical journalist, is just one example of the left doing the work of the right by reporting this story has a progressive triumph, since it addresses the issue of holocaust denial – the bigger picture is missed entirely, either because of naivety or underhandedness.

Criminal Paradise is Government

18-10-2006 03:37

The answer is blowing the Constitution and Bill of Rights out the window – the Triads, Mafia, Latino, Cuban groups and various South American drug cartels all have something to learn from Cheney and Bush; in fact, they look positively tame in comparison. When confronted with accusations (and proof) of murder, torture, theft/plunder, illegal surveillance, etc, on levels traditional organised crime could only dream of, what is the recourse of neo-cons? Legislate and change the Law (it’s an ass anyway). Simply legalise activities that were once considered crimes and criminalise those who oppose or disagree! There’s nothing that compares to stealing government – computerised voting, subterfuge, lies, fabricated terrorist threats and THE POWER TO LEGISLATE – it’s just too damn easy!
