Remembering Britain for the wrong reasons


The conservative President of the Madrid region, Esperanza Aguirre, in an article in El País newspaper, claimed that she is an anglophile and that the majority of schools in the UK are single-sex. No doubt she became an anglophile by reading Dickens novels since the vast majority of state schools in the UK are in fact co-ed.

Let's pray that she does not impose her idea of Britishness on Madrid's education system, which may or may not include her idea of English discipline. Or her idea of British parliamentary affairs.
