Poor response

I HAD the misfortune to listen and watch the debate in the Assembly on the latest appalling Pisa education results for Wales.

First Minister Carwyn Jones’ responses to questions from leaders of the opposition parties relating to the latest failings of his Labour Government in Cardiff and the education of our children, were asan insult to the people of Wales.

The one-word response he gave (“No”) to a question from the leader of the Lib Dems and others showed total and utter disrespect for the democratic process and accountability of himself and his party’s string of Education Ministers over the past 15 fifteen years.

It also showed total disrespect for any kind of scrutiny of himself as the First Minister by treating these very serious questions with such flippancy. His posturing and attitude would not have gone amiss in the Kremlin or the chamber of the People’s Republic of China.

His only response was to point the finger at all of the opposition parties to ask what they would do.

It appears that this First Minister is quite prepared to accept the high office and all that goes with it, but will not take the responsibility that goes with the job.

This Welsh government with Labour in charge is a 5 year car crash. Under Labour, Wales is a country of dragons governed by sheep.

Vox Dei says... that is what the British government said when they gave independance from the british empire to many of the countries. But nothing was said against the break up of the USSR.

These meeting tend to be just point scoring excerises you never actually learn anything about what went wrong and how they intend to fix it. It is more like a school playground

China, South Korea, Japan, top in World Education for their People, the West is trying to use some of their Educational ways here, China, South Korea, and Japan are last place for allowing foreigners to become Nationals.

Unlike the UK, we get one of the first places to make anyone from anywhere a British National, we are also one of the Lowest in the World for Educating our Kids, until Government policies are changed nothing will change, all will happen is they'll keep milking down exams to make their policies look like there working.

With low Education for our kids, more foreigners will be needed to do the jobs our kids are not educated to do, at the same time the PC brigade are accusing our kids of being LAZY, China, South Korea and Japan don't have over crowding in their Schools or Translator fees to pay or disruptive kids on the UK scale.

This country buys MOST of our Electrical goods, Motor cars, clothes bedding etc from these Countries, we need to produce our own, like old times....Made In Great Britain
