Rob Flello arranged a debate in Westminster today on the plans for “bulldozing schools for the future” in Stoke-on-Trent – Rob’s quote, so accurate.
See the 3 parts, 10 minutes each. They get better as you go though and Rob Flello's glare gets angrier!
Rob Flello was great! He presented the issues both with the educational logic and the anger that were warranted. Well done to Rob! Mark Fisher was also great.
Rob highlighted in particular how badly the pupils, staff and families are being treated at Trentham High and Longton High.
Jim [ ] Knight on the other hand was a complete and utter [ ] who talked a load of [ ]! Apparently by his twisted evil logic it is necessary to sacrifice the pupils at Trentham and Longton because he believes (not that this is correct) that this somehow benefits the rest of the city. That’s a pile of [ ] if ever there was one! Whatever happened to “every child matters”, well apparently every child except those in Trentham or Longton!
Then he had the cheek to say that he wanted parents to get behind the flawed proposals – flawed – my quote, so accurate. Well like NO WAY is that about to happen. No, the fight now steps up a gear. This is the right time to get angry, VERY ANGRY. This is appropriate now. The Trentham action group will now drag the council and the government through the courts, as that is what is required. We are right, they are [ ] wrong. The council could make very minor changes to the plans to solve this issue, but won’t. Their mistake. We will not be treated in this shameful way!
JIM KNIGHT – WE WILL FIGHT!
