Our Dear Leader is angrily rebutting claims by the Greens’ Deb Foskey that schools to be closed are underperforming academically.
The logic he uses to “prove” this however suggests a man under some pressure:
â€œI assume that the Canberra Times reporter responsible for promulgating this false report at least made the effort to ask Dr Foskey for some corroborating evidence for her allegation that the Functional and Strategic Review had drawn up a â€˜hit listâ€™ of schools for closure based on literacy and numeracy results. I know for a fact that the reporter in question could have received no joy from that request, because no such evidence exists, and therefore Dr Foskey could not possibly have any such thing in her possession.â€
Neatly circular thinking, like a rat in a wheel.
