Core British values

‘The government is to review whether "core British values" should become a compulsory part of the curriculum for all 11 to 16-year-olds in England.

‘Education minister Bill Rammell …
told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "There is a need for a debate and the essential values already taught in citizenship classes, like freedom, fairness, civil responsibilities, democracy are there.’

Funny, no mention of an all-pervasive class system, institutional racism, determined efforts to be in the vanguard of global neoliberalism, an inability to come to terms with an imperialist past or even supine subservience to US foreign policy.
