Indeed!

From someone who voted against the GFA.

And in hindsight you were correct to do so Marcus.

Eh, could I suggest throwing a few Bishops on the flames, I dont really care if it puts the fire out either  .  .  .

My mate's fatha is a retired Bishop. I'd prefer it if you didn't, it'd cause ructions.

And there’s me thinking we live in a free country. Whatever your views on this, it really shows we’re heading down a dark path. The panel that sacked her even admitted there was no real evidence against her.
(Just for the record, I am not against transgender people at all.)
I do notice that the Muslim people protesting against it in Bham were given a free pass to do so.

well you knew it was going to happen, someone was going to make issue that the teaching was against their religious belief's.

 

Reading the article, I just wonder exactly how many pupils this primary school has that fit into the categories the disciplinary panel are so concerned about? 

 

"disciplinary panel there decided that she had used language which demeaned its gay, lesbian and transgender pupils."

Says she is a “pastoral assistant”, how would a gay or lesbian child feel about approaching her for guidance and what kind of guidance would she give?

 

As for the muslins, as far as i’m aware none of them worked at the school, so could not be sacked.
