Friday Caption Contest (on a Sunday) - Greedy & Stupid Teachers Edition

Tom Winnifrith
Sunday 19 May 2013

So much news to choose from but what to pick. Naturally if this was Fleet Street I would focus on the two events of the week of global importance: Denmark winning Eurovision and Bonnie Tyler bombing or the retirement of Mr David Beckham, national icon and member of the alternative Royal Family - the posh one.

However I go with news that the Teachers Union has passed a motion of no confidence in Michael Gove. Teacher's salaries have skyrocketed in the past decade (heck the State does own a money tree after all). Grade inflation masks the fact that School Leavers today have RRR skills that are not a patch on those of 20, let alone 50 years ago. This is a wholesale reward for failure.

Mr Gove wants to make changes. The Teachers want no changes and are also planning strikes over pay. They are greedy and immoral bastards. As such I am rather warming to Mr Gove. And so while all must have prizes in today's schools I will merely award five nominal A*s for the best entry to the caption below.

For what it is worth my entry is:

Your essay title today is "Bankers should not be rewarded for failure but despite the appalling decline in Education standards teachers need even more money" Bonus marks will be awarded for explaining why Michael Gove is a wicked Tory who has got it all wrong.

Post you entries iun the comments section below.

Last week I asked for captions for this picture in our US Oil & Gas (USOP)  Special:

The winning caption again comes from Donalgarth for

<i>Brian's Family Cookbook.( Simple recipes for untold wealth) Recipe 1 ( The Golden Pot)   Ingredients

1  A new Company listed on AIM ( oil or mining preferred)
2  PR Company  ( the more twisted the better) 
3  Bulletin Board Morons ( freely available on line) Method. 

Mix newco RNS lies with PR Company half truths, sprinkle liberally with morons, and just sit back and watch the golden pot fill up. Repeat as and when you need the gold.

PS.  Do not give this recipe to that bastard Winnifrith.</i>

Well done for that, the deadline for entries this week is 9 AM Friday. Post away.
