Are our children safe?

The Daily Mail reports with characteristic relish that a group of primary school teachers “disgraced themselves” by enjoying a night out and posting the pictures on Facebook. Now, as far as I can see, they did nothing worse than any typical group of young women would, and their chief transgression was not setting their profiles to “private”. Amongst the deadly sins they committed were “smoking” and “drinking cocktails”. How can anyone be happy to entrust their children to the care of such a bunch of debauched trollops? Perhaps next time they should consider having themselves pictured at a knitting circle or a feminist book reading group.

    Very well put, but you might give TPTB ideas.

  2. Denormalisation in action. This was absolutely none of the parents' business.

  3. There's also this one from Stockport, that well-known haunt of depravity, where the events complained about took place before the woman even became a teacher.

  4. You found the link we were talking about last night over a pint, then? Excellent.

    The principle is the same, but it's a different one to the teacher I referred to. This is the fragrant Tasha.

  5. Pub Curmudgeon. I agree with the sentiment you express on this one.

    However, i'd question your assumption that the way to get into the Daily Mail's good books, would be to engage in a Feminist book group.

  6. No, the knitting circle for the Daily Mail and the feminist book group for the Guardian. But neither would approve of the smoking, drinking and knicker-flashing.
