i reckon he posts on here under the name beckywecky10 or something

Who cares, he is not important so his viewpoint is irrelevant to me. He made some sharp observations though, not totally untrue across the board!

He's great.
I love him and applaud his fantastic work setting up a free school.
Go Toby!!
Such a refreshing change ot all the drippy lefties, high on their own sense of smug awareness.

I think his MN name is TobiesJugs.

I do not think that Toby Young is a complete arse and nor do the parents of 450 odd children who all want places for their children at the West London Free School he is setting up and competing for 120 places. He wants academic rigour and order and discipline and has received applications not just from MN types but from a cohort that reflects the diversity of that area of West London which is very diverse as anybody who lives in Hammersmith will tell you.

Stop whining everybody about TY and do something about education in the way that he has done.

LadyBlaBlah Thu 17-Mar-11 18:18:02

He is a bellend

MrsKwazii Thu 17-Mar-11 18:18:10

Ah leave Toby alone, it must be shattering to always do that Roger-Mooresque-looking-over-the-top-of-his-glasses mugging. He's got enough on his plate people, give the guy a break wink

CointreauVersial Thu 17-Mar-11 19:41:29

grin SEA!

Actually I read his book a while back - "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" and it was very entertaining. He's quite possibly a bit of a knob in RL, but I've always had a soft spot for people who come clean about their shortcomings.

Doesnt he play rugby for England?

rollittherecollette Thu 17-Mar-11 19:46:25

Is he just doing this to avoid school fees?

kerala Thu 17-Mar-11 19:50:10

I read his books and used to like him until I read his "article" in the Telegraph. Gone off him now.

Predictable abuse from the Left. They have lost the argument so they resort to attacking personalities.

Scratch the surface of a liberal and you will uncover a fascist.

CointreauVersial Thu 17-Mar-11 19:52:19

Steady on, Major Dan!
