“It is an honor for me to serve the Prime Minister as Parliament’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Education,” the new minister said on Twitter on Friday. “Our education and care system is helping to shape the next generation and lay the groundwork for the future,” he added.
“British education has become a meme”
Echoing the news of the new appointment, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova ironically commented on Jenkyns’ rude attitude.
“Andrea Jenkyns, who served as the middle finger of the Downing Street protesters, has been appointed the new UK education minister. Because ‘British education’ has become a ‘memme’ a long time,” wrote a Russian spokesman on his Telegram account.
Through social networks, the British themselves spoke about the appointment of Jenkyns, questioning his behavior.
“Before going into politics, I worked as a teacher and taught young people to think for themselves, stand up for what is right and treat others with respect. How can we ask young people to behave towards Andrea Jenkyns as Minister of Education?” tweeted the lawmaker Layla Moranurged senior officials to apologize, or as a result, resign.
Other users also criticized the prime minister’s choice. Andrea Jenkyns, appointed the crowd on her way to become Minister of Education, and immediately gave instructions to teachers on how to teach English values and inculcate ‘good behavior’“Isn’t this perfect visual metaphor for the Boris Johnson government?” asked MP John Nicolson.
But there are also those who justify the reaction of the new head of education in England. insulting commentsthe public sometimes gets what they ask for… And sadly it’s likely to be a Labor government in the next election, let’s see how we like it,” one Twitter user said.
