Imagine What We Could Do With Two Lorry Drivers

Latest update on the court case over the government decision to make schools show Fat Al Gore's sci-fi movie 'Attack of the Killer Capitaists': sadly, it appears that combined might of the British state will defeat a lone yorkie eater after all. On the plus side, check out the judge's comments:
Mr Justice Burton is due to deliver a ruling on the case next week, but yesterday he said he would be saying that Gore's Oscar-winning film does promote 'partisan political views'.

This means that teachers will have to warn pupils that there are other opinions on global warming and they should not necessarily accept the views of the film.

He said: 'The result is I will be declaring that, with the guidance as now amended, it will not be unlawful for the film to be shown.'
True, I'm guessing the enhanced guidance will be pretty worthless but the point is still made: Fat Al's movie is not some apolitical recitation of the facts, it's a virulently ideological piece of work and now no one can deny it.

Again, not to hammer the point home, but if you were waiting for the Tories to oppose compulsory indoctrination in schools, you'd have been sadly disappointed. A lone voter has done more damage to indoctrucation than the whole of our main 'right-wing' party. That's why the Nu Tories are deluded when they claim traditional conservatives don't have anywhere else to go. There's a whole flotilla of grass roots bodies fighting their own particular segment of the culture war, and achieving far more than Call Me Dave's increasingly irrelevant party.
