He said in a video: ‘So Rishi Sunak, our unmandated, unelected Prime Minister, twice removed, has decided that it should be compulsary for children to learn maths up until the age of 18.
‘What a p***k! What about arts and humanities, fostering this country’s amazing reputation for creativity and self expression?’
He continued: ‘What about that? What about the kids who don’t want to do maths? I hated maths, I dropped maths as soon as I could and I’ve never needed it other than the skillset that I acquired at the age of 12.
But no, Rishi Sunak wants to f***ing drone army of data entering robots. What a tosser, f**k the tories. Get rid of them, please F**k off.
