Deepings MP Sir John Hayes is leading a bid to fight the 'woke' and politically correct that are ruining British institutions.

Sir John and his group of 'Common Sense Tories' want Prime Minister Boris Johnson to speak for Britain's patriotic silent majority.

What is it with these whiney fucking snowflakes and the truth? Does the plain unvarnished historical truth really scare them that much that they can only cope with the sanitised version?

I'll take a stab at it, and bundle in Remembrance Day and poppy fascism for good measure.

It's proxy hardman posturing. It's saying "We did this thing" when you never got out of the sofa. It's identifying with the soljaz and the heroes of old and basking in reflected glory.

Tell them that their heroes have feet of clay and they get upset. It spoils the image and the simplistic worldview. It means that things might be a little more complicated than they may think, and there's more to a cast[le or statue than meets the eye. But that involves research, discovery, effort. Better to stick with the chocolate box.

What most Tories don't seem to grasp is that most history teaching now focusses on teaching pupils to use various skills so that they are able to look at lots of different sources and then reach their own conclusions.
And why don't they like that?
