As part of a government program to curb extremism and radicalisation, entitled PREVENT, these two YouTube videos have been produced by St Annes Primary School in Royton.
These are promoted, interestingly as 'British Values'.
Children are being taught 'British Values' in an effort to stop radicalisation in every school in the United Kingdom.
Whatever you think about that - how effective it will be - or indeed whether you think it the right approach, the British Government must know they are educating children in 'British Values'.
Not 'Christian' values.
Not 'Islamic' values.
Not 'secular' values.
Not 'religious' values.
Not 'Western' values.
Not 'Enlightenment' values.
Not 'European' values.
Whatever one believes of the Government approach to a shared set of common values, looking back, it seems rather jingoistic and even racist and xenophobic to tie the shared values of those who reside in this country to the concept of the nation state. Isn't that the kind of thing that the BNP, if elected, would do?
