YESTERDAY we posted a commentary by Laurence Fox, head of the Reclaim Party, marking the anniversary of the suspended Batley Grammar School teacher driven into hiding by death threats because he showed pupils a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad. The teacher remains in hiding to this day.
Fox asked: Where is the support for this man and his family from the politicians, the media or the police? A film marking this anniversary made by the Reclaim Party (published on their Facebook page and here by kind permission) details their failure – indeed their complicity.
Introducing the film, Laurence Fox says the teacher’s suspension was driven by the cowardice of the head after an unruly mob descended on the school demanding action. It’s an interview between Martin Daubney, Reclaim’s deputy leader, and Paul Halloran, who stood as an independent self-funded candidate for Batley and Spen in the 2019 General Election and who is a passionate advocate for free speech.
