FLASH: Dissent No Longer Highest Form Of Patriotism

With the People's Guardian refusing to report on unpersons - even MP ones - it looks like another whistleblower has had the boys round. Clearly, she has been exposing important state secrets, such as the fact our education system is comprehensively screwed.

Still, let's just think about what this says about the state of play. No one is claiming that Snuffy is factually wrong, so when her critics claim she's bringing the education system into disrepute, what they're really admitting is that any accurate portrayal of the British education system must, by definition, expose it to public opprobrium. That's quite an admission in the era of the 'best educated generation evah!'
