Plan for Tripe Academy School "put on hold"

The Tripe Marketing Board's proposal to develop a Tripe Academy School in Chorley, Lancashire has been put on indefinite hold, following today's announcement that the government is abandoning plans to force all schools to become academies.

University of Wigan in Lancashire: potential partner
Speaking at a hastily convened media conference this afternoon, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle admitted that he was disappointed at the government climb down.  "We have invested a lot of time and energy in finding a school that was prepared to launch as a Tripe Academy.  It's sad that the plug has been pulled just when we thought we had sealed a deal," he said.

The plans, prepared in collaboration with the University of Wigan in Central Lancashire, would have seen 5 - 10 year olds fast-tracked into careers in the tripe industry.

Sir Norman said it could be "months, or even years" before a similar opportunity presented itself. "Without the government stick, it's hard to see how we'll persuade a school to work with us. It's another victory for the vegan lobbyists," he said.
