Martin Henderson

Future Archaeologists will no doubt be astounded when they find the remains of Martin Henderson, Head of Westmorland Primary School in Greater Manchester. Unique amongst the Headmaster species, he appears to have a spine.

He has had enough of wretched parents swearing at their offspring and each other on the school premises. He has declared that from now on, anyone doing so will be told to leave.

Now whether he does actually do this; or whether some Human Rights organisation decides to stand up for the rights of the Underclass to express themselves freely, remains to be seen.

For now however, he deserves to be our hero of the day.

Good on him! Of course children learn language from their surroundings! I remember one autistic girl who couln't speak. But what she could do was stand on top of the playground slide and scream the f-word at the top of her voice. That ws the ONE word she knew. What does that say about her parents?

From Chris's link about rigid enforcement of school uniform: "One parent who received [a] letter last week said she thought the system was a waste of time. She said: 'I think it's absolutely pathetic. Have the teachers got nothing more important to do?' "

They are trying to instil self respect and discipline in their pupils. No they don't have anything more important to do.

The only pathetic here is the pathetic parent who doesn't seemed to understand the importance of instilling discipline and self-respect into children.

How can any right minded parent object to a school saying; 'We have a uniform policy; we expect your child to turn up to school looking smart, and wearing his/her uniform correctly" ?

This story sums up that half the problem with our youngsters stem from a poor education system that ties itself in knots over 'Children's rights', and emphasising the teaching of vague airy ideologies over rigorous acadmic knowledge, and sees discipline as something akin to child beating.

When someone whose brave enough to challange this shibboleth puts their head above the parapet; the pathetic parents brigade come out to play; i.e. the other half of the problem with our youth: Mard parents who think somehow the rules shouldn't apply to little Jane or Jamie: Get a grip please!

No doubt these same parents will sceam and inveigh loudly if their little darling is mugged or assaulted in the street by a gang of unruly yobs, yet somehow they don't get the connection!!!!

At our local primary, we need to employ staff to deal with "incontinent" kids. Those kids where their mothers are too idele to potty train them, stick them into pull-up-pants, these kids can[t use any cutlery, eat with their fingers.
i see more and more parents in restaurants (with toddlers), toddlers in kids' high chairs, and the food is just spilled onto the high-chair-tray. No plate, no spoon, no knife. The eat with their hands. How long until parents will just shove a bowl next to the pitbull's bowl, and the kids have the family meals with the pets? Why do people bring their kids up like animals?

Because they are very very lazy, and if you tell them so they will punch your lights out.

Such wonderful products of the welfare state! I bet nobody had this scenario in their mind when they made the move after WW2 to introduce the sweeping welfare reforms that have changed our society so much over the past 50 or 60 years.

I'm all in favour of working to reduce material poverty. But it's the failure to deal with a lot of the moral poverty that results from giving people free money, and letting them sit on their arses all day, that worries me most.

Any solutions out there?

Another thought I had on this shortly after making my original post (Anonymous 21:37):

The parents doing the objecting are probably only concerned about one thing; falling out with their little darlings i.e. having to do some parenting for a change!

There can't be, and aren't any sensible objections to what Martin Henderson is trying to achieve, or the manner in which he is going about it.

Certainly when I attend senior school in the late seventies early eighties I wouldn't have been allowed out of the house looking the way some school children do now. The same goes for my wife who left school in the mid-eighties.

Back then parents made sure their children left the house looking smart; the school equally made sure that's how they looked when in school; it was taken as a given.

Nowadays discipline is a dirty word in schools; this also allows many parents, such as the Pathetic parents, to sidestep their responsiblilies as parents.

They don't want the hassle of arguing with John or Jane first thing in the morning over the length of school skirts or ties; tough! It's called parenting you useless individuals.

Whats more; they don't want to have to come out of work to deal with their offspring's refusal to obey the school rules.

What are these parents going to do when John gets a job in which he has to wear a corporate uniform correctly i.e. a bank. Is Mrs pathetic parent going to fly down to the bank and tell the manager the rules don't her apply to her little darling, better yet is she going to tell him 'his focus is all wrong?'

Once the genie's out of the bottle, it's very hard to put it back. I admire Martin Henderson, but he faces an uphill battle.

I blame Gordon Brown and the European Union.

Anonymous 08:45. I was horrified to hear my 5 year old say the same word in front of several other parents, she'd heard it from another child. It's not always the parents at fault.

How many human rights organisations have you actually heard mention the rights of chavs to swear in public?

I'm a member of Amnisty and so far I've yet to be invited to the campaign for the feedom of chavs to act like pricks... have been asked to help with people facing death following unfair trials abroad... and with prisoners being tortured by allies of the UK. But, so far, have never been asked to help with the chavs.

The Crossing is set in a Missouri town during the post-Civil War Reconstruction era and centers on Jason (Henderson), a Civil War soldier who crosses the country and settles into a complicated town where he is welcomed as its savior – whether he likes it or not. The casting is in second position to Henderson’s current series, ABC’s softly-rated midseason drama Off the Map. The Crossing’s female lead is Henderson’s Off the Map co-star Rachelle Lefevre who is also in second position to the ABC medical drama, so NBC is making a big gamble that Off the Map won’t come back for a second season.

I instantly wanted to sit down with Gurinder [Chadha] only because from “Bend It Like Beckham” I knew she was the kind of director who makes very entertaining movies. She’s a crowd-pleaser, she’s very audience-driven. She doesn’t get caught up in doing anything fancy and showing off as a director. I thought that there was just a real innocence to her storytelling that was going to, obviously, serve the script. And it’s just such a novel idea.

I was somewhat familiar with Bollywood films. I used to travel a lot through Southeast Asia and around when I was younger, just backpacking around. I’d see the odd one. Although I don’t think that traditional Bollywood films would be taken that well here in the West, to sort mix the Eastern and the Western film language the way that Gurinder did, I just thought it was such an interesting and original idea.

For five days in 1999, all eyes were on Seattle. Irish actor Stuart Townsend makes his directorial debut with a multi-character recreation of the World Trade Organization’s ill-fated U.S. conference. If the structure recalls Crash and Babel, Townsend intensifies the you-are-there quality through well-integrated archival footage. The docudrama opens with the arrival of a group of anti-globalization activists, led by Jay (The Ring's Martin Henderson), whose compatriots include Lou (Lost's Michelle Rodriguez) and Django (Outkast's AndrĂ© "3000" Benjamin, who provides a welcome dose of humor). As fictional Mayor Jim Tobin (Ray Liotta, wearing a touch too much eyeliner) tries to maintain order, TV reporter Jean (Connie Nielsen) strives for objectivity, police officer Woody Harrelson attempts to carry out the mayor's orders, and Dale's pregnant wife, Ella (Charlize Theron, Townsend's real-life girlfriend), just hopes to make it home in one piece (she gets stuck downtown at the height of the skirmish). Townsend admits he was inspired by Medium Cool, which filmmaker Haskell Wexler shot during 1968's Democratic National Convention.

“We should be championing, nurturing and encouraging our mid-sized firms so that more of them grow and create jobs. For too long these companies, which could inject tens of billions of pounds into our economy, have fallen under the radar of policymakers.

He then moved to Australia to star in the shortlived soapie, Echo Point, and Sweat, which also starred a very young Heath Ledger.

It depends on who they are. Everyone wants to know what it was like working with [Aishwarya Rai]. She’s so beautiful. I don’t know if that qualifies as an interesting question, but it’s certainly one a lot of people want to know the answer to (laughing). A lot of it is just like the style, “Was it different working in a more Bollywood style film than Western? Was it a challenge as an actor?” In some ways the answer to that is yeah, because it was quite a tough job, I think, to play the token Westerner. And in some ways my character is the most ‘straight’ of the whole piece.
