Corporal punishment was banned in schools in 1986 under the very left wing government of Margaret Thatcher lol.Norm wrote: ↑Sun May 20, 2018 12:27 amActually, it is someone else's fault. Parents are near banned from proper spanking and schools can't cane the kids at the same time. All sanctions have been removed by left wing 'children don't lie' idiots and kids nowadays are just as venal as ever. The problem is, they can't be punished now.
Now, did the parents do that? - no!
Did the schools do that? - no!
So who did that? - the left wing, in the name of "The children must express themselves" and "they shouldn't be abused" by corporal punishment. It wasn't ever abuse, it was simple discipline, and it's gone. We are witnessing the consequences.
Actually, I'm all for blaming Thatcher for a lot of what's wrong with the country. You can trace quite a lot back directly to her, but stopping kids being beaten in schools was probably one of her better decisions.
