British schools inspector received threats from a “mixture of Islamic extremists and the hard left” after expose

Ofsted chief received ‘venomous’ threats after raising concerns about faith schools

Ofsted’s chief inspector has told how she received threats and abuse after raising concerns about the values being promoted in some of the country’s faith schools.

Amanda Spielman said she had been the victim of some “pretty venomous stuff”, receiving “nasty tweets” and threatening emails from what she believed to be a “mixture of Islamic extremists and the hard left”.

She told The Times: “I’m not easily bruised. I don’t fall over when I see a load of nasty tweets pointed at me but there has been some pretty venomous stuff.

“I had an email, which was the most threatening one, which was along the lines of ‘We know where you live and we can get you any time we want to’.”

  • Fear drives Islam.

    Everyone always has to worry about a devout Muslim.

    You never know which Muslim will follow Islamic scripture to kill.

    I hope she’s got her pension/exit plan lined up because comments like that are quite inconvenient and usually do not bode well for one’s public service career.

      Her masters may consider that her investigations have gone off the rails by investigating islamics, what with all the right-wing extremism running rampant in the schools.

        Yes, as she noted in the “threats and venom” she recieved.

        • She should have blamed Tommy Robinson.
