Saturday

1. These sorts of things are doing the rounds:

2. Teachers bouncing kids in chippies:

Pupils at Cotham school in Bristol have been told they are not allowed to go into several shops. He said he has seen a significant drop in business after teachers, dressed in high-viz jackets, blocked the entrances and gave children detentions. Neil D’Souza, owner of Chilli Bellies, said: ‘They came in the shop and started telling off the children who were in there, handing out detentions, demanding that they leave. ‘I’d taken the children’s money, their food was almost ready. I said I’d had enough and asked this teacher to leave, to get out of my business, get off my property.

Mixed feelings.

3. Computers wrote election night stories?

    Teachers have no business telling kids where they can shop after school, or what they can eat at that time.

    I can just about accept that antisocial behaviour while in school uniform out of school can be controlled, but chosen what you can eat?

      Anyway, if they have fish and mushy peas with the chips, where’s the problem?

        Or, were it in Scotland, bloody puddy, chips, and pickled onions. Superfood.

        It’s a pity that the chip shop man won’t have the time, or perhaps the disposable income, to take the food fascists to court.
