The Politically Correct lunacy that is poisoning our society has at last gone too far in the education system in attacking the customs and values that Britishness is built on. Our children are being brainwashed with wussiness. Here’s an example of how:
A Primary school has banned football after children were alleged to be copying ‘overzealous tackles’ from Euro 2012.
Playing football at break-time has been forbidden to stop fights and teachers at staff at Hall Road Primary, in Orchard Park, Hull have asked the boys to play skipping games and outdoor chess instead.
Deputy head teacher Kristina Frary said the ban was needed to prevent injuries and allow staff to get on with teaching.
She said: “Passions are running high, especially with the Euro 2012 football tournament. Potentially, that’s why children are wound-up.
“We have had a sequence of fall-outs and they were all centred around football.
Fallings out in the playground as a primary school? And this never happened before Euro 2012 started? Amazing. Well of course the laws of politically correct control freakery demand that is there is anything that offers the slightest excuse for banning an activity kids enjoy then that activity must be banned.
I hate to think what the shrinking violets of Hall Road Primary staffroom would have made of the robust tackles that were standard in Rugby games at my old school. Boys do not need televised football tournaments to encourage them to be enthusiastic about sports that involve physical contact, it’s in our nature. And all efforts to change human nature are doomed to end in catastrophe.
We must ban schoolteachers from having any contact with schoolchildren until they have worked for at least ten years in a factory or on a building site. That should be long enough for even the most wussy to learn a little about reality.
