Mr Brainy had heard that some schools were so silly that they taught the history of Nazi Germany in the style of a Mr Men book. That information was bound to be entirely accurate! He decided to include the information in a speech. That would show the silly schools!
Next Mr Brainy went to see the Prime Minister, Mr Flash.
“Hello, Mr Flash!” said Mr Brainy, entering Mr Flash’s room.
“Er, hello, Mr Brainy,” said Mr Flash, hastily hiding something under his desk.
“I’m cross about modern children,” said Mr Brainy. “They're lazy and waste their valuable time playing silly games like Angry Birds on their iPads!”
“Er, yes, that sounds terrible,” said Mr Flash, giving a little cough and glancing from side to side.
“I’m also cross about the former Children’s Laureate, Mr Bearded Lefty,” said Mr Brainy. “He keeps saying my ideas for teaching English are all wrong!”
“Oh, what would some silly poet know about English,” said Mr Flash. “Anyway, thank you for coming to see me, Mr Brainy, but I must be getting on. I have a lot of important work to do.”
“Of course, Mr Flash!” said Mr Brainy, and left the room.
After he was sure Mr Brainy was gone, Mr Flash got up, locked the door, then reached under his desk.
