Losing the plot and being certifiably insane seems to be putting him in favour with the UK public.
He's modelling himself on Trump.

Which leads to the question, what happened in the U.K. to have such a large part of the population that could be so erm, dumb? Time at school should no longer be called “education” if that is all that can be achieved at the end of several years in classrooms.

Whereas education in France equally means a childs upbringing, the responsability is shared between the family and the school, education is 24/7 and not just within school hours.

Where the family is lacking the school/college/lycée would usually tryo to fill in the gap, at the lycée where I worked our first job with the 14-16 year old intake mostly from deprived areas was to teach them how to work together in community instead of grunting and squaring up to each other, also to teach many of them very basic life skills like how to eat at a table with cutlery brushing their teeth and generally becoming unferal.

The sortie d'integration that we did every September was challenging but hugely rewarding to see the results it brought.

You only have to wait for a couple of weeks into les grande vacances to see what a positive effect the schools have on children from bad families, thats when after 2 weeks with the parents or usually the grandparents then turn into screaming sulking "expressive children" in the shops and restaurants, in the UK its like that all year round.
