Daily Mail: “Let Our Teachers Be Heroes”

The Daily Mail’s not very nice.
Their front page calls for sacrifice
As the author of this piece implies
That they require a teacher dies.
(Like Sarah Baxter in the Times
Whose journalistic crimes
Set her apart from other writers
When she accused the firefighters
At Grenfell of not acting bravely
But being obsessed with health and safety.
Her reasoning, as supplied
Was that not a single one had died).
As for the Mail’s call to glory,
Economics drives this story
And not the benefits to children
Or the risks to those who teach them,
Many of whom, despite all this,
Have been at work throughout the crisis
As there’s no ruling that forbids
The schooling of key workers’ kids.
The lesson is, as ever, clear:
Teachers, hold your union dear
And be around to tell the tale
Of how you beat the Daily Mail.

  1. This article by the Mail is vile and disgusting!
    Schools are already open to key workers children and school staff, including low paid Teaching Assistants are working on rota basis going into school, risking their lives to look after other key worker’s children.
    Reopening to all pupils will spread the virus like wildfire as it is impossible to enforce social distancing in crowded schools.
    It is a disgrace the Mail is spouting this ignorant, horrible nonsense. Shame on you.

  2. Wouldn’t even use this paper to wipe my arse with. Surprised they didn’t try to remind us that Princess Diana has died too.
