Rank sedition!

Something that caught my eye in today's paper: on the sample list of words that the government expects primary school children to spell properly, are "bruise", "destroy", "ridiculous" and "tyrant": is someone trying to drop a hint to the Secretary of State?

That said, it can only be a good thing if children routinely start learning foreign languages in primary schools (provided, that is, the resources will be there to make it happen properly - don't hold your breath).
