Yes, you read that right. And it's not me hyping something up to bash the LibDems. Romsey MP Sandra Gidley has called for school sports days to be scrapped because she thinks it humiliates children who lose.
Speaking in a House of Commons debate on public health, Mrs Gidley said: "Those children who are towards the end of the queue when the teams are being picked soon get the message and decide that they do not want to exercise because they do not want to make fools of themselves. "That is not a positive experience. If a child cannot read, they are not put on a stage and made to stumble through the alphabet or a passage of Shakespeare, yet little thought is given to the children who do not excel at sport." The MP called for a greater focus on activities which focused on "personal improvement" like skipping, dance and games. She said: "I would ask that we try to get away from competitive sport in schools and think about increasing exercise and activity."
