Classes in Core British Values


The Reuters newsagency flashed this morning a story across the media information systems that The Government is considering introducing compulsory lessons on "core British values" for children in response to last July's suicide bomb attacks on London.
.
Education minister Bill Rammell, MP said a six-month review would examine whether all 11 to 16-year-olds should be taught about issues such as freedom of speech, civic responsibility, and democracy and how historically they developed.
.
Well of course young British Subjects should be properly educated particularly in British history, indeed so to be should all our politicians.
.
There is an overwhelming case for the compulsory tests on British life for our school children which immigrants now to pass before they could apply to become British. The same tests should be rigorously applied to our present and future politicians with a pass mark of 100 per cent. Failure, for our political class not being an option.

Being British is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a
Belgian beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a
JapaneseTV.

Cheers !
