Has the time come to ban all religious worship and related activities from UK Schools? — Tony Anthony J Sargeant

Standard

The 1944 Education Act put into place a state primary and secondary school system. It was an Act of Parliament introduced by a Conservative Minister, RA Butler, but implemented by the subsequent Labour Government under Clement Atlee. It was an immense leap forward. Nevertheless, as Anthony J Sargeant points out, it was flawed and ‘of its time’ with unfortunate and unforeseen consequences following subsequent developments in UK society.

Nothing unduly ‘cheffy’ or fine dining about this meal – but Anthony J Sargeant recommends it as delicious honest food for a cold winter night in Britain. The portion of the pudding is one sixth of the cooked pudding shown in the previous post and you can see the luscious juices generated by the long steaming process. It is served here with green cabbage and potato and celeriac mash.

So important to get absolutely fresh mackerel. Anthony Sargeant bought a sparkling fresh mackerel from the Fish stall in Shrewsbury Market which he highly recommends. This is one side of a good size fish filleted and split into two pieces to remove the pin bones that run down the centre of each side. it is served on a home made salsa with a green salad and a few pieces of potato salad.
