It’s been revealed today that the Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan, has failed her driving test as a result of attempting to undertake a thoroughly unconvincing U-turn.
Ms Morgan’s examiner, Ms Tess Taken, said the practical driving test was the worst example of a U-turn the Driver of Independent Vehicles Academy (DIVA) has ever witnessed.
Ms Morgan’s Driving Instructor, Ms Minnie Driver of Academy Driving School, said it was a part of her training that she’d failed to practise in the past: “I’ve been asking her to perform a U-turn all last week, but she flatly refused. I’m not the only one either – every time we drove past a parent on the street they’d yell out ‘Reverse! Reverse!’ but she went out of her way to ignore them. She’s as stubborn as a blood stain on a crisp white sheet, that one.”
Ms Morgan justified her behaviour by saying: “A U-turn is a U-turn. Nobody likes doing them, but on the highway of life, they are sometimes necessary. Yes, mine was chaotic but it’s been done now.”
But Ms Taken is not so sure: “If you examine the U-turn more closely, there really was no substance to it at all. It wasn’t even a U-turn. At the exact point she did it, there was actually a whole load of exhaust smoke in the rearview mirror.”
She continues: “At the time of the U-turn, we were driving in the country. I looked out the window and saw what I thought was a sheep, but on closer inspection it appeared to be a wolf wearing a natty fleece. I took it as an omen.”
