Promoting or Espousing British Values has all but been outlawed in this country. What he ought to have said was promoting Politically Correct, state Sanctioned British Values which just goes to show that this statement by them is mere propaganda. Ok Mr Gove, I challenge you to tell us what these British values are. For a start, do you mean English? Are they, looking after the sick and elderly, privatising public services, allowing the City who caused the debt we're in, to continue making millions whilst we suffer losing out for past 4 years, that democracy must always prevail when we have a rampant right wing media. Don't talk shit Gove, you wouldn't know a decent value even if the Mail printed it. Telegraph report........Gove became embroiled in the Commons expenses scandal after the Telegraph reported that he had claimed £7,000 to furnish his London home before "flipping" his designated second home to a house in his constituency, Surrey Heath. Are these the British Values he is talking about? It says that schools must promote British values of respect for the law, democracy, equality and tolerance of different faiths and religious and other beliefs. Since the government itself fails to do that, why should schools have to?
What British values? The only values politicians have are greed, nepotism, sleaze and corruption.What a load of BS.... Birmingham council admitted that there is no evidence of extremism in the schools so your just trying to scare people with your crap Mr Gove...Does the man mean British values or the values of Cameron's corrupt junta? The two are certainly not the same. Democracy and free speech or the limitation of them are the first issues that come to mind. so if you haven't worked it out yet, Gove’s Trojan horse plot was meant to create a fake hysteria around Muslims and Islam so that Gove could extend his powers with little complaint from the brit public. If anyone gets the time just read Theresa mays leaked letter to Gove .. it alludes to what had been discussed and planned. the Trojan hoax was just the means of getting there - not that the bigots care about Gove’s abuse of powers. Sick and tired of this minister and his gang! Think BIG, teach people to think universal values instead of old-fashioned nationalism conducting to xenophobia. You won't have extreme practise in your school Mr Gove but you will end up with what something even more terrifying: a mass sentiment of rage against other cultures and nationalities, ignorance all around you. Shame on you.
I would like to know, from Mr Gove, what is being done to investigate the school inspector who failed to observe, report and prevent the take over of these schools? Lee Donaghy, the assistant principal of Birmingham's Park View School which was placed in special measures over fears children were at risk of radicalisation, said many of the concerns over Muslim extremists were 'plain old Islamophobia'. It was clear from remarks made by Muslims involved in the running of the schools that they were just continuing during school hours the culture that children were living in for the rest of the time, and where 95% of the pupils were Muslim it seemed only natural to do so. The whole 'Trojan Horse' thing reminds me of the Satanic Abuse scandal, which turned out to be a load of paranoid rubbish. Is there any evidence for it at all? Looks like an excuse to spread nationalist dogma into schools to me..The British government is advertising hatred and disgust for foreigners with many of its policies and the attitude of the press is also very unhelpful... i do not know where they think this will lead us to.
I always thought British values were:
- to divide, exploit and steal from other countries
- to travel to exotic lands, meet interesting people, and kill them
- to uphold the tradition of bad haircuts, ugly shoes and trousers, tattoos, potato-sack-dresses and blue brass-buttoned blazers
- to apply horrible and mutually maximum-clashing patterns of wallpaper, curtains, carpets, lamps and sofas in the dullest colours imaginable
- to live in poky draughty and damp matchbox houses with funny little kitchens and only one toilet up a steep flight of steps as soon as you enter
- to display dis-ease in communicating with other humans
- to consume nauseating but simultaneously tasteless food which doesn't evolve
- to overfish and then ruin the fish dish
- to invent proper games and then lose leadership in them
- to be strictly monolingual
- to be bureaucratic and robot-like in the repetition of rules when confronted with a new situation
- to claim to be the world's oldest democracy and then elect abominable and embarrassing politicians with foot-in-mouth disease
- to have invented the railways and then proceed to develop the sleaziest, most inefficient, worst-designed trains in Europe
- to be part of a continent yet pretend to have nothing to do with it
I am enjoying myself and could go on and on, but seriously, in this case I agree with the ministry: those who are ideologically brainwashed and refuse to respect other religions and thinking -including atheism - have no place in schools!
I prefer to fight evil by not allowing one minority group to be blamed, accused and then discriminated against because of a minority of the minority. There were terrorists before the current jihadist terrorists. The IRA to name but one example. Did we ban the Irish from being involved in running schools? Did we curb their liberties? Did we wholesale blame the Irish and look to enforce 'control measures' as you so worrying phrased it, against them? No, we did what all reasonable, rational and just societies did and looked for those responsible. It may not be the easiest route, but it is the just route. Wholesale discrimination of the kind you are implying is wrong, immoral and frankly disturbing that anyone would suggest it. Gove tells the teachers which books they should let the children study, forces the schools to accept a Christian version of the Bible...and if that is not censorship, I don't know what is.
When I heard Cameron talk about people "respecting" British values and institutions, I couldn't stop laughing. Institutions like the police force, that have been found to be institutionally racist? Or what about the CPS and the IPCC, who have FAILED to arrest let alone prosecute, one police officer over the five hundred or so death in custody cases. Then you have the corporate controlled corrupt media institutions in Britain, that deserve no respect.
BRITISH VALUES??? I blame them for the Expulsion of the
Acadians, the War of 1812, WW1 and WW2. The British were terribly cruel to the people of Africa as were the Portuguese in the Congo. British ships were
necessary for the African slave trade. Thousands of ships may have been
involved. The British knew of Auschwitz and Bergen Belsen but could not be bothered.
The British are the world`s second greatest hypocrites and liars who ILLEGALLY OCCUPY GIBRALTAR and the
FALKLANDS if we are to judge them according to International Law. Britain was
never under threat by the British at any time by the Spanish nor by the tribes
in South America.
This massive Muslim immigration is now a needle being poked in the eye of the fish and chips tribe, I say good show! Best it be used to divide and conquer this island as poetic justice for their illegal occupations and
