School, Brittania!

Thee haughty tyrants ne'er shall abate:
All their attempts to bend thee down
Will but arouse generous make-work schemes for social-science graduates,
To work their woe, and thy decline.

From The Telegraph, via Roger Kimball:

The National Children's Bureau, which receives £12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.

This could include a child of as young as three who says "yuk" in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.

The guidance by the NCB is designed to draw attention to potentially-racist attitudes in youngsters from a young age.

… Nurseries are encouraged to report as many incidents as possible to their local council.

The left-libs socialist are right out of their fucking minds.

Little ones can't tell each they stink? Toddlers stink, a large bunch of them are still in diapers. I would tell them they stink if they stunk. How are you going to toilet train a baby if you don't tell them they stink?

I always felt so bad for children of the left-lib socialist. To intentionally stun your childs mind, by making them a nothing, is a wicked bad thing to do.

"It alerts playgroup leaders that even babies can not be ignored in the drive to root out prejudice as they can 'recognise different people in their lives'."

Okay, when babies make a nasty face at someone, it's often just gas. Burp them and get on with life.

Well, if nothing else, such PC nonsense is good for a laugh.
