Ed’s speech wasn’t an epoch defining moment. It was more like ‘We need to pull our socks up. We really do, don’t you see.’
EARLIER . Head Ed was speaking to another class on the subject of renewable energy. He had this to say ‘It is socially unacceptable to be against wind turbines in your area’. As the man says, ”come on, class. now pull your socks up.”
One of the teachers who is refusing to accept a telling off from the new headteacher is his brother David, former head of foreign languages.

Be that as it may, David Miliband’s walked out of the staff conference and has not signed an application to be reappointed to office. Here is the break with the past that’s been coming for days.
Blair will be remembered for his Clause 4 repudiation, and his ill advised invasion of Iraq. Ed the new Head will be remembered for saying the Iraq invasion was wrong, but not much else apparently.
Another PB commenter mentioned that Ed was just like a Head Boy at a school making a speech. It seems like the school environment is where he’s at. All we disagree over is whether he’s the Head Master or the Head Boy.
