......"Most people go there for sailing for two weeks a year. There's a sailing club that is one of the best in the world, where there's champagne," he had said.....
Most people? For the sailing? Loblocks. Yes, there is sailing, and certainly highly rated world-wide. But most people visit the Isle of Wight because it's an attractive place to spend their holidays. The percentage of Island visitors who do get past the front gate of the Royal Yacht Squadron, if that's the club he meant, is tiny.
As the boss of OFSTED, he could have tried harder at his maths.
Now Now Boys .. play nicely! Although had the said gentleman in question had been more specific as in "people from Wroxhall etc etc" I might have been inclined to agreed with him! (Sonars observations re webbed feet and 6 fingers does have something of a ring of truth). However I will be interesting to see if the gentleman is now going to make good on his promise of coming for a visit (which was made before his retirement from public life or more like his early unintended departure from OFSTED) or if news of Wightsparker polishing up his Barratt .50cal has reached him .
