The Truth about Goats
President Erdogan has announced that ‘school’s out for summer’, prompted by him putting all subversive teaching staff under house arrest.

Many in the Turkish Government are claiming that the military coup could have been avoided with a return to the Grammar system and a free King James bible in ever school. Ironically the threat of the reintroduction of the death penalty is the one idea Michael Gove tried but failed to implement during his time as Justice Secretary and earlier as Education Secretary.
Turkish students will now be left to their own devices, provided it involves waving banners in support of President Erdogan. Meanwhile the President has denounced extremist forces hell-bent on imprisoning and torturing the populace, by imprisoning and torturing the populace but in an orderly and democratic fashion.
Turkey’s future membership of the EU now hangs in the balance, with Angela Merkel cautioning moderation while the UK advised ‘more rigorous SAT exams’.
