Oct 24, 2020 by

by Frederick Edward, The Conservative Woman: IN June, the Runnymede Trust released a report entitled Race and Racism in English Secondary Schools. The trust, which describes itself as the ‘UK’s leading independent race equality think tank’, had much wisdom to impart about how to insert the issue of race into every nook and cranny of the curriculum.

At last, a conservative Tory MP

Oct 23, 2020 by

by Margaret Ashworth, The Conservative Woman: I AM beginning to wonder if we have found our next Conservative Party leader. Kemi Badenoch’s speech in the Commons this week marked her out as a true conservative instead of the progressive trend-followers we have become used to. Some of the tabloids headlined the fact that the women and equalities minister used the ‘n-word’ in a debate on Black History Month. This was not the important part of what she had to say, however.

The pernicious doctrine of ‘white privilege’ holds back children of all colours

Oct 15, 2020 by

by Calvin Robinson, Mailonline: White privilege . . . what an obscene phrase that is. It is also fundamentally racist in my view, encouraging the bigotry and hatred it pretends to oppose. If you don’t believe me, look at the immense damage it is doing in British schools. This week, Professor Matthew Goodwin, a politics lecturer at the University of Kent, told the Commons Education Select Committee that the concept of ‘white privilege’ — societal attitudes that benefit white people over...
