Unless parents voice their objections (which they probably won’t for fear of being harassed by the mob on social media) things will get progressively worse (no pun intended).

Schools are arrogating more and more of the parental role through council, government and, in some cases UN (though much more subtly) diktats – especially on social issues – so it’s no wonder they feel emboldened to do pretty well what they like. Given the number of leftie zealots in the teaching profession, politics is easy meat for them as we have already seen with the backing they have given to pupil ‘climate emergency’ strikes.

The words ‘piper’, ‘Hamelin’ and ‘pied’ come to mind.

I have viewed primary school performances with a sceptical eye ever since my eldest took part in green propaganda The Bumblesnouts Save The World nearly twenty years ago. As a result, I always asked to preview scripts before deciding whether or not to allow my children to take part.

I often find the ‘jokes’ distasteful, especially when the children don’t get them but the adults do – surely it is a form of child abuse to get children to unwittingly say something rude to cater to the adults’ baser instincts.
