Smell The Glove

An hour or so ago, I heard someone on the radio suggest, "moving the top mark up to 10." This is Spinal Tap.

You do not seem to grasp the concept of inflation. Despite having banged on about "grade inflation" every year that I can remember.

And of course the commercial schools did far better. This year, anyone could have given all of their pupils top marks, with no questions asked. But only the people with born to rule entitlement took the opportunity.


  1. Spot on, especially about private schools.

    1. Thank you. That obvious point is not being made by the paid commentariat. Guess why not.
