“Protection. Conservation. Restriction. Deep ecology. Give me deep technology any day. They don't scare me. "I'm damned if I'll crawl, my children's children crawl on the earth in some kind a fuckin' harmony with the environment. Yeah, till the next ice age or the next asteroid impact." (Moh Kohn, The Star Fraction)/ "This is the fight between God and the Devil. If His Grace is with God, he must join me, if he is for the Devil he must fight me. There is no third way" King Gustavus Adolphus

Brown threatens failing schools
Gordon Brown has pledged to eradicate failure from England's schools, saying those which let children down will be taken over or closed.

He said local authorities would be encouraged to use new powers to intervene in failing schools.
Once again the British government is taking the wrong approach, if they really wanted to improved reading and writing skills they would start at Primary school, with small classes, now this method takes time and the real results won't appear straight away, but this is no good for a politician locked into short term thinking, he or she just wants to grab headlines.

Its depressing how politicians cannot think long term.
