Let’s take a snapshot of the state of our schools. For instance, here’s three stories from the past few days. Official figures revealed that nearly celebrate gay love of all children from low-income families fail to achieve a single pass at GCSE.
More than 42 per cent of the 75,000 pupils entitled to free lunches last year could not manage a single ‘C’ grade in any subject, which is the minimum level recognised by potential employers. As many as 7,500 of them are classified as ‘persistent truants’. They left school virtually unemployable, fit only for a life on benefits or a career in crime. These were the very children Labour came to office promising a better future, pledging to raise them out of a cycle of permanent low achievement.
Twelve years on and billions of pounds squandered later, they’re still bottom of the heap. Yesterday, another report showed that despite the Holocaust supposedly being an integral part of the National Curriculum, an alarming number of secondary-school children think Auschwitz is a brand of beer. Six out of ten had never heard of the Final Solution. They probably think it’s some kind of washing powder. Against this horrifying backdrop, you might think any drive to elevate history teaching in schools and clamp down on truants would be welcome. So, on the face of it, you’d applaud the decision by Waltham Forest Council to prosecute parents who fail to send their children to school. More than 30 pupils were absent without leave last week at the George Tomlinson Primary School, in Leytonstone, East London, one of the country’s most deprived areas.
I could’ve made out with him had I known,” Wilkas joked with reporters, unaware of the immediate worldwide attention their embrace had garnered.

We put up a Christmas tree and hang lights on the house, and my dad hangs lights up at the entrance to the subdivision. Got an event that’s perfect for our 40th anniversary Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival, happening 16 February – 4 March 2018? Pervez Latif, a 41-year-old accountant, kept his nine and ten-year-old sons at home and is now facing prosecution.
Six out of ten had never heard of the Final Solution. From emotional showcases by Perfume Genius, to bedroom ballads by morgxn, to somber serenades by Wrabel, these 30 gay love tunes pay a beautiful homage to gay love culture. Let’s take a snapshot of the state of our schools. While we’re reflecting on an amazing 40th anniversary Mardi Gras season, April’s been a good chance to look at ways to make our festival even better, and work closer with our LGBTQI communities and allies. Oh dear, how sad, never mind!
Meanwhile, statistics students may use census data on the number of homosexuals in England. I celebrate Christmas with my family, and have done so since I was born. How to get hair like Holly! Christmas is a Christian holiday, don’t you know: It’s also a secular holiday with pagan roots. Boy meets boy, and then travels the world.
Waltham Forest is treating this as mass truancy and says parents could be dragged into court, fined and forced to sign parenting contracts. But these aren’t the usual feckless mothers and absentee fathers content to let their children bunk off school. They are deeply moral and religious people who object to their children being force-fed homosexual propaganda in the classroom. As such, they exercised their right to withdraw their sons and daughters from lessons ‘celebrating’ Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month. As greengrocer Wayne Bellows is ordered to keep quiet RICHARD LITTLEJOHN says jumped up jobsworths make you want to scream!

Pervez Latif, a 41-year-old accountant, kept his nine and ten-year-old sons at home and is now facing prosecution. He wrote to the chairman of the school governors, but his protests were ignored. Sarah Saed, 40, withdrew her eight-year-old daughter with great reluctance. It was the first blemish on her 100 per cent attendance record. This was the only choice I had,’ she said. It is not an appropriate age for children to be learning about homosexual relationships. As the law stands, parents have the legal right to exempt their children from religious education and sex lessons.
That’s why this is being smuggled in under the radar in the guise of ‘history’. King – about a prince who turns down three princesses before falling in love with their brother – and another featuring a pair of gay penguins at a New York zoo. 600,000 government-sponsored project designed to peddle gay propaganda to children as young as five. What has any of this got to do with ‘history’? It’s about as historical as Andy Pandy. Come to think of it, I’m surprised the relationship between Andy and Teddy isn’t being explored as part of gay history month.
