I don't really agree with anything he says, he is talking about a new "A-level" which the students in question are not able and probably not willing to undertake. I also doubt there are enough extra teachers available who are able to teach this material.

I would have suggested a course along the lines of: what is mathematics and why is it interesting. Which ironically could be based on Tim Gower's book "Mathematics: A Very Short Introduction".
