English kids to be taught Britishness

BBC News:
The government is to review whether "core British values" should become a compulsory part of the curriculum for all 11 to 16-year-olds in England.
The six month-long schools review will ask how all children can develop a strong sense of British identity by learning about Britain's culture and traditions, including the contributions from different communities.
The review will be outlined in a speech by the new education minister Bill Rammell today, along with another into the teaching of Islam in universities. Both reviews are supposedly in response to the 7/7 bombings, but one wonders who is really being targeted:
Education could combat discrimination against Muslims and help tackle the minority of extremists on the fringes, he is expected to say in his speech.
Islamic terrorists murder dozens in our capital, therefore English children must be taught not to discriminate against Muslims. And how does New Labour's Ministry of Love intend to do this? By erasing the notion of Englishness. Embrace multicultural Britain, embrace Islam, embrace a Scottish Prime Minister.

Update 10.30am. I see the BBC has finally put a link to the Scottish Raj poll on its politics page.

Tony Blair and the thugs and chancers who surround him are the most evil person who has ever had power in Britain. And the ones behind him, guiding him. (He's not a terribly bright little twerp, but he is a willing tool of evil.)
