Why a Conservative Government in the UK sucks donkey bollocks

  1. My sister isn't as clever as most
  2. She is mildly dyslexic, but was also led astray by friendship circles in school. And she was also pretty lazy
  3. She left school with a D in both English and Maths in GCSE (End of high school grade)
  4. This isn't great because most jobs require A*-C grades to even consider you for the application process
  5. So, to her credit, she rolled up her socks and went to college to re do her GCSE Maths and English
  6. Whilst enrolling she decided she found a love for photography, so she staretd a multimedia course as well.
  7. Results day came, and she nearly got a distinction (highest grade for her course) in multimedia.
  8. Unfortunately she got two D's again at GCSE
  9. This shouldn't have mattered because it meant whilst she was completing her Level 2 Multimedia course (First year was level 1, she passed so could move on to level 2) she could resit her GCSEs again, and aim for that C!
  10. THIS IS WHERE I GET ENRAGED.
  11. The college she went to had their funding slashed because the current Conservative government isn't funding local authorities.
  12. Local authorities run and fund state managed schools. Because they have no money and have to make extreme cuts (£16bn in 4 years in my local authority) education lucks out
  13. This meant that they had to make around 80 lecturers redundant
  14. This meant fewer classes
  15. DID I MENTION, that because of the lack of funds available Local authorities now offer money based on performance
  16. So with fewer classes, and with colleges only taking on the smartest students in order to perform better in order to secure higher funding, my sister now has no college place
  17. And it all comes back to the fucking Conservative government we have in the UK
  18. They slash funding for local authorities because they don't want the state to provide anything for anyone
  19. They want private companies to provide our services
  20. This includes things like the fantastic Free Healthcare we receive through the NHS, local authority services as well, such as; garbage removal, road maintenance, local libraries, and most importantly schooling
  21. An intentional by product of all this privatisation, is to widen the wealth gap
  22. And a perfect example of this intentional wealth gap is our education system
  23. They want education to be exclusive to the rich, powerful and upper classes
  24. They want to ensure that those of a working class background can't scrape their way up the elitist wall and land a place at a good university
  25. They want to take us back to the 1920's where the rich stayed rich and the servants lived in the attics
  26. Fuck yourself David Cameron
  27. Fuck yourself George Osbourne
  28. Fuck yourself Michael Gove
  29. I'm all for political disagreement. Everyones never going to fully agree on a political base. I myself am probably closer to the centre than the left. But, some things need to be challenged
  30. I'm done
