‘The Trojan Horse Scandal and the Problem of Equalities in Britain Today’.

The event examined the scandal from a broad range of perspectives, engaging with debates on #equalities, #liberalism, and #Britishness.…
It also provided an opportunity to discuss and generate a dialogue about the significance of the 'Trojan Horse’ scandal and the duty placed on schools after the scandal to promote Fundamental British Values (FBV) in the promotion of #democracy.
Speakers analysed how both are reproducing narratives of racial discrimination & inequalities in a context that is informed by minoritising communities, #problematising specific religious #values, & essentialising the signification of social, religious, & cultural identities.

Looking forward to 'more British shows on TV. I have a few pitches:

'Queues and views.'

Piers Morgan interviews people in the Greggs queue about controversial political issues and then storms out. Celebrity guests include Johnny Vegas and Larry the Cat

'Great teas of the Island'

The ghost of Maggie Thatcher invades the homes of pensioners and ensures they are not drinking PG tips. Episode one includes Judi Dench performing an exorcism. Music provided by Ed Sheeran.
'Priti Patel; Refugee roundup'

A documentary series follows the beleaguered home secretary as she teams up with the 'Clandestine threat commander' to chase asylum seekers with a large net. Sponsored by Wetherspoons. Music by Morrisey.

According to Wikipedia, "#Britishness [i.e. British identity] is the state or quality of being British or of embodying British characteristics. It comprises the claimed qualities that bind and distinguish the British people and form the basis of their unity and identity."
According to me, British identity is an Orwellian construct based on lies, deceit & a regime of rewards & intimidation.

To identify with Britain as one's nation is to identify with, i.e. to love, #BigBrother.

Britain is a mercenary #PatronState deceitfully posing as a nation.
This is how Big Brother disguises & legitimises himself, his minions in the British establishment, & the immense power they wield & abuse. He is far more subtle than as portrayed by #GeorgeOrwell in 1984.
