Cameron is ‘terrified’ by lack of decent secondary schools

Oh dear, oh dear. Our Prime Minister confessed to the News of the World that he is ‘terrified’ about finding a good state school for his kids.

Cameron told the newspaper he fears he will struggle to give them a decent education because there are so few good comprehensives close to No10.

It doesn’t take a genius to work out that Cameron is obviously sticking the knife into Labour’s school legacy, but surely the PM should be very PR savvy by now?

Slating the standard of schools in London to a paper that thrives on scoops and scandals in like giving me £1000 cash in Miu Miu. Pure carnage is the best way to describe this.

Let’s talk about Cameron’s choice of language – using the word ‘terrified’ is quite frankly ridiculous.

According to the Collins Thesaurus of the English Language ‘terrified’ means petrified, alarmed, panic-stricken, frightened, intimidated. I don’t think many parents would associate any of these adjectives with the school selection choice for their little ones.

I don’t think Cameron should be too worried though. I’m pretty confident in my prediction that his children won’t have any problems going through the selection process when they apply for their secondary schools!
