London School: Pupils tear down Union flag, scrawl BLM propaganda on walls, complain of Islamophobia and transphobia when school reintroduces British history and talks about responsibility. By Tom Pyman.

Mutiny erupted at a London school today as pupils protested against rules forbidding colourful hijabs and the new head’s ‘back to basics’ regime, with calls for u-turns on policies to toughen up discipline and adopt a traditional history curriculum emphasising kings and queens — as teachers caved in to demands to take down the Union flag.

Hundreds of pupils and parents gathered outside Pimlico Academy this morning holding Black Lives Matter flags and chanting ‘we want change’ as several police officers watched on. …

Opposition, which includes staff threats to strike, was originally focused on a uniform regime, introduced by new head Daniel Smith last August that banned hairstyles that ‘block people’s view’. Critics claimed this would penalise Muslims and people with Afro hairstyles at a school where three quarters of children are from ethnic minorities. …

The British flag was removed and burnt by pupils in September before being put back up, and on the weekend anti-flag graffiti appeared on the school walls reading ‘Ain’t no black in the Union Jack’, ‘White schools for brown kids are u mad’ and ‘Pimlico Academy…run by racists…for profit’. …

Protesters at the school — ranked ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted at the last inspection in 2011 — today released an extraordinary statement railing against ‘racism, Islamophobia and transphobia’ and said they were also angry about the lack of recognition for Black Lives Matter or Black History Month. …

OUT: Back to basics, British history, responsibility. That’s racis’:

Other changes will be made when pupils return after the Easter break, a statement from [Daniel Smith, CEO of Future Academies Paul Smith] said. … His wife, Lady Nash, is a co-chair of governors, and together they run the ‘Curriculum Centre’, which began working with Pimlico Academy in 2012 and helps decide what pupils will be taught across the academy chain.

The programme centres on a traditional education, including ‘ancient history’ and ‘British history’. Over the last two years, it has launched common curriculum programmes in English Literature, English grammar, history, science, maths and Latin. …

Its ‘British History’ programme, available on the Future Academies website, outlines a study plan for ‘Great Events and People from British History’, from ‘Augustine’s Mission’ to ‘The Trial and Execution of Charles I’. It covers significant events and individuals which have shaped the country, including Alfred the Great; The Norman Conquest; Henry II and Thomas Becket; Richard the Lionheart and Saladin the Merciful; and King John and Magna Carta. Also included are Edward I and the Conquest of Wales; The Peasants’ Revolt; Henry’s ‘Great Matter’; The Spanish Armada; and The Gunpowder Plot. …

Mr Smith marked his arrival in July with a punchy open letter to parents, in which he repeated the phrase ‘it is your responsibility’ three times in one paragraph while discussing the need for parents to ensure their children complete homework, dress properly and support the academy leadership. …

IN: Lies from BLM, who insist that “all lives matter”and “white lives matter” are racist. (The gimmedats are so transparent.)

Speaking this morning, one female student in year 12 said she had been inspired by Black Lives Matter to ‘speak out’ over the ‘abrupt’ changes to school policies since Mr Smith arrived in July 2020. ‘In light of Black Lives Matter, we do think that it was a responsibility of the students to speak to them and show support, as it was a very traumatic time for many of us,’ she told The Guardian.

Even teachers have joined the uprising against Mr Smith, with up to 30 said to be planning to leave at the end of the year …

It is the latest of a wave of demonstrations to hit British schools in recent weeks, which have included protests over ‘rape culture’ and an uprising by parents at Batley Grammar School in Yorkshire over its decision to show cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. …

Something like this at England’s schools was inevitable. It will become more common.

Not your country any more, white Britons. Aren’t you pleased that Tony Blair gave it away? Immigration under Tony Blair’s government was much higher than anything since 1066, and predominately came from the third world.

Sneakily gave away Britain’s future

Labour wanted mass immigration to make UK more multicultural, says former adviser,” by Tom Whitehead in 2009:

The huge increases in migrants over the last decade were partly due to a politically motivated attempt by ministers to radically change the country and “rub the Right’s nose in diversity”, according to Andrew Neather, a former adviser to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett.

He said Labour’s relaxation of controls was a deliberate plan to “open up the UK to mass migration” but that ministers were nervous and reluctant to discuss such a move publicly for fear it would alienate its “core working class vote”. …

Critics said the revelations showed a “conspiracy” within Government to impose mass immigration for “cynical” political reasons.
