How the hell are these kids going to be able to learn to read if they are to be taught to spell words differently to how they spelt in books or are the idiots that came up with this idea going to replace all books to include the new spellings.

Its how this country is going - backwards to accomodate the lazy notions of modern britain chav culture rife among the lazy fast food xbox generation. Proper speak and pronounciation is the sadly the past .....note if my grammar is not up to scratch i'm lazy aswell and can't be bothered with the caps lock keys and such

Ridiculous, isn't it?

 

Soon they will be abolishing capital letters at the beginning of sentences.
