UK Liberty

The Telegraph:

A prominent British National Party member and teacher used a school computer to criticise immigrants and Muslims, it is claimed.

Adam Walker could be banned from the profession for alleged racial and religious intolerance if the charges are proved.

He is believed to be the first teacher to be hauled before England’s General Teaching Council to face the charge.

But Christina McAnea, of the Unison union, questioned whether BNP members should be allowed to teach.

“Schools should be centres of learning and tolerance, not a breeding ground for the poisonous views of the BNP,” she said.

Why does McAnea think she has the right to dictate who may and who may not teach based on their political views rather than their abilities?

Now, if his contract or terms of employment forbid contributing to websites or accessing particular websites, fair enough, he should face a disciplinary action.  But that does not seem to be the underlying issue here, but rather that he is a member of the BNP.
