Don't be a hater, Emma. Chillax, blood. The status of teachers must be rising in these straitened times, as we learn to appreciate what really matters in life isn't, after all, money. (We aren't after all going to have much of that anyway, unless we're bankers or millionaire Cabinet members.) A number of distinguished persons offered advice; Emma Thompson included. 'Thompson gives the girls at her old school an English lesson', the Independent reported on 29 September. 'I went to give a talk at my old school and the girls were all doing "likes" and "innits?" and "it aint's", which drives me insane,' she told the Radio Times (and the Indy copied). 'I told them, "Don't do it because it makes you sound stupid and you're not stupid." There is the necessity to have two languages--one you use with your mates and the other that you need in any official capacity. Or,' she added, rather undermining her argument with a descent into the vernacular, 'you're going to sound like a knob.' NATE's own Ian McNeilly was quoted, though it's a pity the journalist hadn't actually spoken to him: perhaps his comments on 'non-standard grammatical constructions' came from the Radio Times too? The Indy took Emma to task in an editorial, ungallantly referring to her age: 'Whoa there! .... Ms Thompson also seems to forget that street slang is often seen as cool by the young because it tends to frustrate older people like her who don't have a grasp of it.'
