TapA Disgrace to Parliament

It is looking likely that at the next general election, whenever it is called but certainly before next June, that the current government will be deposed and Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition will take over. It is therefore with dismay that I heard this offensive speech from a member who is likely to become a minister under that administration. I refer to a passage in which Michael Grove, Shadow Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, managed in one short paragraph (last paragraph) to offend a member of the public not associated with the debate and also to indulge in a form of humour which may be mildly amusing in a playground. Perhaps that is why his brief is for schools. Of course we knew what to expect when here he made a “joke” on the Secretary of State’s name—the lowest form of wit by any standards.
