Since Ed Balls's Trotskyite Decree from on high that teachers are no longer to mention "mum and dad" ; but must rather use the term 'Parents' - after pressure from Stonewall [in order to avoid 'offence to civic partners/non-gender specifics/extended multi-partner relationships']
Nicky has issued her own 'order' to our kids :
Every time a teacher says 'parents' , they have to reply : 'you mean my mum and dad' ?
A minor defiance...but every little helps !!!!
Although saying that , Jay and Rowan already have form : Rowan refused to shake Tony Blair's hand, was precluded from interviewing David Cameron because of her anti-Tory bias ; and Jamie yelled from the balcony 'We Want a Republic!!!' when Her Majesty The Queen visited the school....
Don't look at me - I'm Mr meek-and-mild -wouldn't-say-boo-to-a-goose - they don't get it from my Gene-pool [wink!]
