Britain’s all talk, no action Conservative Party government is once again warning schools should not teach “white privilege”As a matter of fact.
In a radio interview with Nick Ferrari on LBC, Education Secretary Gillian Keegan was pushed on whether “white privilege”Schools should have the ability to teach, according to the slightly nervous Conservative (Tory MP) “Well, no, we, we, we basically said, look, here’s, here’s, here’s what we should be, er, teaching, we should have balance and debate; there is a lot of debate in the country, we should be able to have those debates, we should be able to have those discussions, but you shouldn’t be teaching things as facts that are debates, so that was part of the push…”
“So ‘white privilege’ isn’t fact?” Ferrari interrupted.
“Well, we, we, I mean, I, you know, I don’t think it’s a fact,”Keegan replied by gazing down at the microphone recording.
“I mean, I don’t, er, for me, think that, er, there’s a privilege to being, er, white on its own, no,”The conclusion was reached by her, and she seemed to have a bit more confidence.

Over their more than a decade in government, the Tories made many similar statements, though some were only recently. However, they have not taken any concrete, effective action to stop or punish far-left-leaning ideology being spread in schools.
Kemi Badenoch, who currently serves as Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s Trade Secretary and Minister for Women and Equalities, gave a particularly forceful, viral speech in the House of Commons when she was a junior minister in October 2020, declaring that white privilege as fact was against the law and that the government stood “unequivocally”CRT is a Critical Race Theory.
This statement was not followed by any legal actions. In fact, when Breitbart London approached Badenoch regarding a trust that operated the National Health Service (NHS), they were pushing for anti-national laws.“whiteness”Her team of trainers refused to respond or engage in dialogue with her about the matter.
A full year later in October 2021, with identity politics as firmly embedded in state education as ever, the Tories were back at it again, with then-Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi, like Gillian Keegan today, saying schools should not teach “contested views on ‘white privilege’”As if they were “fact”.
As with legal mass immigration, currently at an all-time high despite decades of promises to reduce it, it seems probable that illegal migration will also be at its highest levels. This is despite nearly half a century of government assurances about how they would handle illegal migration. “fixing the broken system”Tories believe that there is another problem with racial identity politics within the classroom. They will not go further than empty rhetoric to keep their core votes on their side at the ballot box.
