OUTRAGE as student referred to anti-terror police for UKIP leaflets in his school bag
Michael Higginson, 15, is a student at Vision Studio School in Mansfield and was shocked and horrified by an incident in March at his school.
Michael had a box of UKIP leaflets in his bag (sealed and not being distributed in school) which was spotted by a member of staff at his school. Instead of being pleased about Michael’s active involvement in democracy, the member of staff decided that he was an extremist and had to be reported to the police.
As a result, Michael was told by the safeguarding officers of his school “you’ve committed a hate crime” that was “very serious” and frighteningly that “we need to find out whether you’re an extremist”. This is despite Ofsted saying:
“The school’s system for monitoring cases of concern lacks clarity. Leaders have implemented a ‘traffic light’ system to highlight and monitor pupils who are particularly vulnerable. The system is not well implemented.”
Surely that should be a bigger focus than ukip leaflets in students’ bags?
Astoundingly, he was visited by police officers from the Prevent scheme (the scheme used to combat ISIS)! Michael said they were “really friendly and said they had no concerns about me” and that they had said their visit was “out of order given the circumstances”.
Speaking to Kipper Central, Michael said “This is a direct attack on freedom of speech!”. He added “I am outraged by the censorship that goes on within our schools”.
This is not the first time students looking at UKIP material have been reported for extremism. For example, a student was reported for looking at the “politically incorrect” UKIP website last year and students have said that UKIP faces prejudice at Universities.
Political correctness has gone mad and people like Michael should not have to endure this madness just to appease their idiotic social-Marxist teachers’ desire for hatred.
