BALD-FACED VOTE RIGGING AS HILLCREST HEAD NIXES POLL: ‘ANTI-UNIFORM PARENTS ARE REVOLTING’!

All is not well in the once boho suburb of Totterdown… Or rather, all is not well among the parents of the local Primary School, HILLCREST – one of the last schools in the city not trussing up young kids in nasty nylon uniforms for their own good.

As reported in The BRISTOLIAN #4.10, the promised referendum of parents has now taken place at the school on the vexed issue of introducing a uniform and, in a small victory for the area’s dwindling liberals over the gentrifying corporate hordes, 52% of parents said ‘thanks but no thanks’ and voted against. Alas, this wasn’t good enough for the school’s bosses, Headteacher Tim ‘Baldy’ Browse and chair of governors Julia ‘Thick’ Skinner. They immediately announced that they planned to INTRODUCE A UNIFORM ANYWAY!

Cue uproar, Facebook spats, playground rows and fuming complaints as Thick and Baldy were besieged by outraged parents.

Matters then took a turn for the worse when Thick Skinner published a post on her widely-read blog condemning complaining parents as “school bullies” whose complaints were “pointless” and full of “aggressive, intimidating vitriol”! When this predictably stirred up even more anger, she then pulled it down, perhaps not realising that nothing is every really deleted from the web… You’ll never pass your ICT exam with clangers like that!

Meanwhile, presumably not wishing to get left behind in the total nutjob stakes, Baldy Browse has started issuing DARK THREATS that he may be investigating parents comments about the school on Facebook. Oooerrr missus!

What kind of city do we live in when primary school managers with support from council bosses start compiling secret intelligence dossiers on parents who oppose school uniforms?

    Yeah, no to school uniforms, so Jeremy & Jemima in their designer gear, can lord it over John & Jane. We need kids who nag their parents to keep up with the Jones. The equality of uniforms ? Heavens forbid.

      I totally agree with you Bert. In fact you’re comment neatly sums up the middle-class elitist pretensions of people who believe uniforms to be ‘nasty nylon’

    Is democracy also an elitist pretension? Can we not have one school in the city that thinks differently to the rest, that is not prepared to conform to the Ofsted template. Only dead fish go with the flow.

      Yes Lionel, clearly only silly old bags who run Bristol Primary schools should be allowed to write gratuitously offensive stuff about Bristol parents on the internet. How dare the plebs do the same!

      Whatever next?

    Ah yes, “the equality of school uniform”.

    How come then inequality has been increasing for a generation now then?

    Clearly headteachers and their hangers-on plans to make us more equal are a dismal failure. Perhaps they need to come up with a new plan that, like, works?

    In this case I think it is Jeremy and Jemima that are desperate for uniforms and it is that pair of anarchists, John and Jane that won’t touch it with a barge pole.
