This is brilliant.
Not only are people picking up on the fact that, if Thicky Nicky’s eyes are mirrors of her soul, then it must be vacant – but the people who’ve realised it are teachers.
The Huffington Post has been brilliant in its coverage of the Education secretary’s confrontation with teachers’ union the NASUWT, which just happens to coincide with the YouTube release of the single Nicky Morgan’s Eyes by teachers’ punk band Gary Kaye and The Enemies of Promise.
So let’s have a look at both in action. First we’ll have Nicky Morgan addressing the NASUWT, then the punk video she inspired.
A song mocking Nicky Morgan has emerged as the eduction secretary was on Saturday heckled after telling a teachers’ conference that schools had improved over the last five years.
The Tory minister also angered teachers at the NASUWT teachers’ conferences in Birmingham as she urged unions to “be more helpful” and not issue press releases that relay negative news.
The song, released by a teacher’s punk rock group, was written in protest at the academisation of schools and the “pressures on teachers”.
The song, released on YouTube by media studies teacher Gary Kaye, is called ‘Nicky Morgan’s Eyes’.
Lines in the song appear to echo teachers and unions in saying the profession’s workload is unmanageable and academies are data-driven.
The final line of the song is: “Nicky don’t need her eyes to see. Nicky has parted from reality.”
That lines should be sung at her, everywhere she goes.
