New National Curriculum includes Lace Making and Servant Flogging

The government is hoping to recapture the glory days of the British Empire with a return to old fashioned school subjects.

The new National Curriculum does away with more modern subjects in favour of Duelling and Standing Up Straight.

Science lessons will disregard any discoveries made since 1850, concentrating instead on making opium.

Education Minster Michael Gove said: “The British men who conquered half the globe didn’t have their minds full of social science and Philip Larkin.”

Girls will be taught separately from boys, to avoid overheating their brains.
