As if the current level of powers of meddling were not enough to explode the heads of Eurosceptics everywhere, they are coming for your children. I give you the European curriculum
A draft of the European Commission's recommendations sets out how European citizens should use their native languages, with knowledge of "basic vocabulary" and "functional grammar". The draft says citizens should have a "positive attitude towards communication in the mother tongue", based on a willingness to strive for "aesthetic qualities" and an interest in interaction with others.Typical Eurospeak, full of platitudes that mean nothing. The real issue is that we should be considering allowing the EU to have even an opinion on education. After all the way it works is 1) Opinion, 2) Recommendation, 3) Area of interest, 4) Qualifies majority voting.
Don't give them an inch, or we will see a wholesale take over. Don't listen to me, a man of far more stature is saying the same thing.
Conservative higher education spokesman, Boris Johnson, described the government's support for the proposals as "madness" today.Followed by:
"What we have here is the first attempt to use the European curriculum to create what the commission regards as its ultimate goal - a common European identity."Glad someone else recognises their game.
