Sarah Vine was shocked that a teaching union leader said kids were ‘mucky’ – only 5 responses you need
As you’ll no doubt have seen by now the government is keen to get a large part of the school population back behind their desks next month.
Lots of people don’t agree or have concerns about it, like teaching unions and a large number of local authorities, not to mention a good deal of parents who have decided not to send their kids back.
One thing bothering people is that kids aren’t necessarily the most hygiene-minded – not ideal during a pandemic – but Daily Mail columnist Sarah Vine was shocked by this suggestion, and naturally went on Twitter to say so.
This is what the woman in charge of our teaching unions thinks of kids. Great. pic.twitter.com/yUr0YzN3qN

And here are the only responses you need to that.
‘Woman who has met children accurately describes children’ isn’t the gotcha you seem to think it is.

Do you not get exhausted pretending to be outraged about unoutrageous things? What grown-up doesn’t know that kids are mucky?

This is a really obvious fact and right now it’s a matter of life and death for a lot of teachers https://t.co/BtII3rZkeH

Earlier this month my son managed to get spit into his vitamin syringe, came over to me whilst I was sitting unsuspecting on the sofa and squirted it into my nose and mouth. It’s not controversial to say kids are a bit mucky. https://t.co/vcFsMr6Xd0

Not even Sarah Vine-alike, Julia Hartley Brewer was on her side.
To be fair, she is right

To conclude …
It's entirely accurate, as anyone who's ever had kids will know.
