“Give me a child until age seven and I’ll…” ensure all rebellious notions are eradicated

Occupy London (St Paul’s Cathedral, 2011)

 

The UK Joint Committee on Human Rights has issued a damning indictment on the Tory Government’s flagship Counter-Extremism Bill, arguing that the provisions in the bill are entirely unnecessary and even dangerous. If the bill was enacted by Parliament, free speech would be eroded to the extent that many education institutions would be fearful of bringing up and discussing a range of topics. The bill complements the Government’s much-criticised Prevent strategy (see documents below). This strategy is aimed at all sectors of society and at people of all ages. Controversially, however, the Prevent programme also targets children even of nursery school age. It is able to do this because the programme dovetails into the  much-needed Safeguarding Children programme, which primarily seeks to identify sexual predators and to stop bullying.
