Gordon's "Cool Britannia" - Social Engineering: Trouble at mill over gay lessons.

Parents face possible court action for withdrawing their children from lessons on gay and lesbian history.

More than 30 pupils were pulled out of a week of teaching at a primary school which included books about homosexual partnerships.

The controversial content was worked into the curriculum at George Tomlinson School in Waltham Forest, East London.

The council has declared that children who missed the lessons will be viewed as truants.
Now this one shows a problem between the needs of this government to social engineer and the views of parents who do not want their offspring learning about such things at a young age.
The ruling means some families could breach rules that children should not be absent for more than 19 days a year.

Sanctions include spot fines, parenting contracts and ultimately court action.

The parents, who objected to the lessons on moral and religious grounds, said the content was more appropriate to secondary age pupils.
How long I wonder before the state, which ultimately pushes this onto the children via the schools plays the homophobia card against the parents? The state preaches that all relationships are equal, yet many parents disagree on religious grounds.
Pervez Latif, whose children Saleh, ten, and Abdur-Rahim, nine, attend the school, said he knew of up to 30 withdrawals from the lessons.

The 41-year-old accountant said Christian and Muslim parents had objected to the theme linked to Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender History Month.

‘We as parents did not receive any guidance that this was going to happen,’ he added. ‘There was just a newsletter mentioning the week and that certain themes would be taught.

‘I didn’t want my children to be learning about this. I wrote a letter to the chairman of the governors explaining that I would be taking my children out of school and he wrote back saying that there was no other option.
Well New Labour have let the cat out of the bag on this one, both Christian and Moslem parents agreeing to take a stand against the state... 
A spokesman for Waltham Forest Council said: ‘As part of the borough’s policy of promoting tolerance in our schools, children are taught that everyone in our society is of equal value.

‘At George Tomlinson, parents were invited to meet with teachers and governors several weeks ago to discuss what work would

be taking place throughout the national LGBT History Month and how this work would be delivered.

‘Regrettably, some parents chose to remove their children from school.

‘The council does not condone any unauthorised absence from school and action has been taken.’

Norman Wells, director of the Family Education Trust, said: ‘It is a fundamental principle of education law that children must be educated in accordance with the wishes of their parents.

'It is outrageous for a school or local authority to think it can ride roughshod over parents and impose lessons upon children that arouse such widespread concerns.

‘The only action that needs to be taken is to offer an apology to the parents concerned.’

George Tomlinson is close to a school which launched a gay version of Romeo and Juliet called Romeo and Julian – also to mark the alternative history month.
This is ultimately only one solution, remember to get out and vote this worthless shower of authoritarian social engineering shitheads out of office. 

That is both in national, council and Euro elections.

Aren't you missing the point, dear boy? A Government led by a certain predelicted group need their subjects to learn how they get to the very pinnacle of society and power. Education, education, education. Teflon never named a subject, did he?

I've got four children aged between nineteen and four and I tell you what, despite all the brainwashing in schools and on TV children INSTINCTIVELY seem to know that homosexuality is wrong.

JPT, thats the New Labour re-education camp for you. Ten years of breaking rocks and a prison camp play of Romeo & George or whatever it was called.
