Percy Sugden: "There are folk in this fair land of ours, Miss Riley, who are hellbent on taking away life's most precious possession - childhood. The age of innocence. Look at 'em today, the kids. Five-year olds using language I'd never heard of til I were twenty. Throwing stones, vandalising, spraying black paint all over t'place, ganging up on teachers. They even have em carrying banners in flamin' processions, going on strike. I tell you I were passing Bessie Street Juniors t'other day on the bus and there were two fellas handing out political leaflets to kids (motioning) 'that high'. If I could have got down them steps I'd have throttled the pair of em."
Deirdre Barlow: "Well, here endeth the first lesson."
