The chief of Ofsted, Amanda Spielman, has called for ‘muscular liberalism’ to promote tolerance and diversity. Tolerance is one of four modern ‘British Values’ identified for the Prevent strategy that was forced upon schools in 2014. It is ill-defined, however, in reality meaning whatever the ruling Leftist establishment wants it to mean.
In the sixties and seventies it meant abortion on demand, easy divorce, and free love. In the nineties it meant the implementation of speech codes and political correctness. In the noughties it meant rapid mass immigration and the creation of punishments for ‘Islamophobia’. In 2013 it meant accepting same sex marriage or else being punished for ‘homophobia’.
Today it means accepting transgender propaganda in primary schools which tells children they are not boys or girls, before encouraging girls to have their young bodies pumped full of testosterone if they say they want to be a boy, or allowing boys to have oestrogen injections and surgically removing their reproductive organs on demand. Anyone not accepting this edict from the Ministry of Love is guilty of ‘transphobia’.
