I’ve mentioned before that John Bald’s blog on language and literacy is well worth a visit. Like many others, he’s been following the story of Katherine Birbalsingh as reported in the (mainly) broadsheet press and on this blog. His latest posting, ‘Katharine Birbalsingh – the Guardian Knot’, reports an interview with her in the Guardian. If you want to listen to what it was Katharine Birbalsingh said at the Tory Party conference that so upset the governors of her school, it has been posted on YouTube in its entirety. And, if you’re a member of the Blob, best to sit down first.
