Positive discrimination is an oxymoron.
The Coalition’s policy of forcing top universities to lower their entrance requirements for students from “poor backgrounds” is another crazy example of social engineering.
Instead of patronising state school students in this way, the Government should address the root cause of the problem and look at ways of raising state school standards.
While they’re at it, they should look at the other problem – too many people going to university to obtain ever more worthless qualifications.
David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.
Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
