David, I have some suggestions for you...

News comes to me that the former "Countdown" presenter Carol Vorderman is to lead an inquiry into the teaching of maths for the Conservative Party.

Talk about "route of least thinking" David - I know you are struggling to get to grips with the complexities of the world around you, but if you want to lead us try to show a bit more original thought please.

In keeping with today's announcement, and just for fun, I thought I would put forward some ideas for candidates to lead inquiries into other subject areas:
  • Steven Hawkins - English
  • Roy Chubby Brown - Modern Languages
  • John 'Two Jags' Prescott - Classical Studies
  • Gary McKinnon - Computing
  • Katie 'Jordan' Price - Biology
  • Nicky 'Nail Bomber' Reilly - Chemistry
  • Dara O'Brien - Physics
  • Banksy - Art & Design
  • Brian Blessed - Drama
  • Amy Winehouse - Music
  • Professor Colin 'Beagle 2' Pillinger - CDT
  • Dwain 'clean now' Chambers - PE
  • Frankie Boyle - Modern Studies
  • Sarah Palin - History
  • Jade Goody - Geography
  • Sir Fred 'RBS' Goodwin - Business Education
  • Alistair Darling - Home Economics
  • Richard Dawkins - Religious Education


  1. Russell Brand - Social Awareness

  2. LOL TS - although Sex Education might be his thing as well...

  3. Well said Clara. They can't rescind on it now though because I expect they've already paid the fee.

    Short term thinking, not good politics.

  4. Hey Subrosa,

    populist politics, like Sara Payne being appointed Victims Commissioner. Will make no difference, and allows politicians to neglect their responsibility to deal with 'thorny' subjects. Gone in 12 months... Bloody 'Tsars' - none have them have made any difference
