Birmingham Council insists Trojan Horse did happen and promises to challenge those who deny it

Birmingham City Council has insisted there WAS a serious problem in city schools during the Trojan Horse affair.

And it promised to “challenge” people who try to deny what happened.

Inquiries in 2014 found there was a “co-ordinated, deliberate and sustained” attempt by a group of people to take control of some Birmingham schools and “introduce an intolerant and aggressive Islamic ethos”.

But the authority issued a statement after pressure group MEND organised a debate in a city community centre to discuss whether Trojan Horse really did happen as it has been described.

Some background... MEND is an Islamist group that holds Muslim supremacist views. As is typical they have managed to insinuate themselves into public life aided and abetted by useful idiot vote whoring politicians; Report: Muslim Lobby Group MEND ‘Promotes Extremism’, Works with MPs and Police
