Gareth Young has discovered political and racist goings-on at the Department for Children, Schools And Families.
This "department" covers England only, and its mission statement used to read (emphasis is mine):
"The purpose of the Department for Children, Schools and Families is to make England the best place in the world for children and young people to grow up."
Nice and clear, eh? A nice, clear statement with a commendable goal.
But now the statement reads (emphasis is mine):
"The purpose of the Department for Children, Schools and Families is to make this the best place in the world for children and young people to grow up."
This is worrying on two fronts:
1) It makes the area covered by the department unclear. Where on earth is "this"?
2) It opens up a whole can of worms about the New Labour project - including devolution, the West Lothian Question, anti-England/English racism and the Barnett Formula. The mission statement of the Department for Children, Schools And Families is now unclear. Somebody has been in there, muddying the waters, simply by "cleansing" out the word "England". And that also would seem to be a prime concern of "our" Government in its attempts to delude the people of England.
