There is uproar over this headline on quite a lot of other sites I go on, football boards, music boards etc. One of the football boards has a link to the PCC which loads of fans have emailed. This is going to be a real shitstorm for the mail. They can try and change the headline, but a picture of the initial headline is going round the net. This is bad, bad publicity.

Swap out the word "Teacher" for "Jew" and you might get some real perspective on how the right-wing press truly operates. Am I being extreme? Try it with every single scapegoating story and haul me off to Gleis 13 if you disagree.

I posted the link on facebook earlier. Unfortunately, one of my friends agrees with the jist of the article, and thinks the teachers should feel bad about it because it's their job to look after kids, and that should come before worrying about their pensions.
Fact of the matter is, teachers are responsible for your kids when they're in school. When not in school, for whatever reason, the responsibility lies with the parents. Are the DM going to blame the parents? Of course not. Because it was an ACCIDENT.

This is the greatest thing I've read in a good long while. Sincerely.

Or insert the name Harvey Price ... and imagine the fallout.

Evolution of the headline.
Girl, 13, crushed to death by a branch as she sat on a park bench after teachers went out on strike

But of course complaining about dangerous trees is "elf an safety gorn mad".

I did like this comment on the "Commie teachers murder your children with trees" story from the comments on Political Scrapbook

"There is no moral "u bend" this truly despicable paper will shy away from exploring un-gloved, then go on to make dinner without washing its hands. Nasty, nasty little mob orator."

More confusion for DM readers... :twisted:

How has the DM the GALL to print this when only last week it was condemning teachers for striking and the comments on here were spiteful and full of vitriol? Make your mind up DM and readers.

There's a depressing number of comments calling for the restoration of corporal punishment.

Then there's this cunt and the ten child abusers that agree with him.

makes u want to become a teacher so u can give them all the little toads a good kicking

But it did cheer me up a little to see that our old friend is the worst rated for this gem
Typical moaning from teachers again, they want to try doing REAL WORK for a change. Teachers pay should be cut to encourage them to instill discipline.
