The government insists on English schools asking for birthplace data from parents.

New Department for Education rules mean that academics must show research to government two days before publishing.

The government announces a new policy requiring employers to register all workers who are not British citizens. (They have since kinda sorta climbed down on that one, but not really.)

Just to remind everyone where this is headed:

What badge would you have had to wear in a Nazi concentration camp?

I'd have had to wear a red triangle and a black triangle.

It vexes me that people keep saying Corbyn and Labour cannot win. Because actually, they can. The Tories are transforming before us into something absolutely fucking disgusting, and they're pursuing an ideological economic policy that will wreck the country.

And New Labour seem absolutely intent on doing everything they can to support the Tories in this endeavour.

It's horrifying, and terrifying.

Everything you listed is absolutely terrifying.

From what I've read, it's not compulsory to tell your child's school their nationality? Shame on the teachers who don't make that clear to their students' parents, too.

I think it's a combination of not fully understanding, and the constant stress and fear teachers experience due to sheer weight of bureaucracy. They're scared of getting it wrong, so they go overboard. (Then of course there will be the racists who somehow became teachers :-( )
