Letters to the Editor – Education

Sir

Anyone who thinks that education in the UK has not declined over the last three or four decades need only to read social media posts for a few minutes to see the lack of literacy on display.

Of course the flaw in my argument is that they will either be unable to read such posts, or not be able to understand the appalling display of spelling and grammatical errors.

Yours

Letters to the Editor – the class war

Dear Sir

The class war is really a middle class thing, hence the fact that we have an upper class, a lower class and a plethora of middle classes; upper, lower, not quite upper middle etc. However, that is to keep the pretentious people out of the peasantry where they do not want to be, nor do we peasants want them amongst us for that matter. The upper class certainly don’t want them, so for the middle class the class system is an essential.

It is in the lower orders that resentment flares up, mainly through the politics of envy these day and every day I see in the mire of social media evidence that my Leftie friends are winning this battle. Indeed almost every social media platform shows that the Left in this country has no class whatsoever.

Yours etc

more thoughts on #Facebook

I was muttering here about Faceache the other week, saying how I was using it less and less. Feedback from friends on that post and a subsequent Tweet got me thinking that I should try and give it more attention, but the results have been patchy. Continue reading

just realised how long it is since I used faceache #facebook

It must be at least 2 months since I looked at Facebook. Over that time I have been very busy with work, staying away from home for some of the time, but, whilst I have been Tweeting under my various guises, blogging across 5 of my 7 blogs and in and out of LinkedIn, Faceache has not excited me enough to bother with it despite the random email reminders it sends me.

Will I keep the account? Maybe. Perhaps I might consult one of my more Facebook savvy friends about making better use of it, but even writing this little blog in its honour hasn’t inspired me to try and remember my log in details and fire it up.

letters to the editor #31 – more fun with words

Sir

When I was younger, if asked to make a decision, people would say it was up to me. Now they would say it is down to me.

At what point did we get this inversion? I think that we should be told.

Yours faithfully

Are your best friends your PC and your mobile phone?

In these days of texting, mobile phones and social networking is virtual commuication becoming too dominant? Yes it is (fairly) instant and keeps people in touch, but what effect is it having on the art of conversation and social skills?

I use business networking groups as a way of keeping human contact up – what about you?
