The British educational system

Dalrymple describes it as

a conspiracy by the Department for Education.

This arm of the British bureaucracy, he explains,

acts as a sub-committee on behalf of the bourgeoisie, to protect the bourgeoisie from any competition from the lower orders by keeping them in a state of preternatural ignorance and uncouthness.

The British educational marvel

Dalrymple asks: 'How is it possible for so many children, not of defective intelligence, to emerge from an education costing approximately £60,000 per child, still unable to perform the simplest arithmetical operations and almost totally ignorant of history, geography and many other subjects? How is this miracle of inefficiency performed?

How is it possible for so many children, not of defective intelligence, to emerge from an education costing approximately £60,000 per child, still unable to perform the simplest arithmetical operations and almost totally ignorant of history, geography and many other subjects?

Dalrymple interviews a student at a university, studying a vocational subject in which arithmetical calculations are often necessary, who cannot multiply six by seven, except by counting it out laboriously on his fingers. Dalrymple comments:

Only the British State could perform this miracle.

And Dalrymple reports that approximately half of the people aged between 16 and 25 whom he encounters in his work as a doctor in a ‘deprived area’ reply to the question,

Are you good at arithmetic?

with a question of their own:

What is arithmetic?

United in decadence

very similar in their inability to tackle the problems that confront them. Both countries are sleepwalking to insignificance and international oblivion.

The French

Everyone in France is ready to struggle, even violently, for the preservation of his own little privileges and protections (while pretending to do so for the good of humanity – the French are just as hypocritical as the British). France’s social model produces fonctionnaires like the savannah produces termites, and allows certain categories of workers to retire on a very high percentage of their salary almost as soon as they have begun to work.

cannot tackle their abysmally low educational and cultural standards, which are obvious even on landing at a British airport, because no politician has the guts to do it — politicians prefer the tried and trusted policy of après moi, le déluge. Successive British governments have comprehensively destroyed the British educational system: a high percentage of British children leave school less literate than Tanzanian peasants [and this is reflected in low productivity and generalised gormlessness].
