This time last year I was feverishly writing away exposing the twists and distortions of state-propagandists like Andrew Gilligan, and key individuals involved in aiding the discriminatory persecution of the Muslim minority in Birmingham, vis-à-vis a plot which would form the basis for the Counter Terrorism and Security Act’s enshrinement of the duty to prevent radicalisation.
A year on, and I am fasting as I was last year. I am sitting down before my instrument of article-production, just like last year. And I am still exposing Gilligan’s crusade against Muslims at the State’s (and media’s) complete ignorance of incidents revolving around teachers from an evangelical Christian background. His latest piece written a couple of months ago, targeted Springfield School in Birmingham. As ever Gilligan continues to write articles showing one side of the story, pushing the narrative of “infiltration”, and problematic Muslims who are “criminally” exercising their right *shock and horror* to have a say in their child’s education.
The placement of the Trojan Hoax update is unusual: it is in a report which talks against criminalising “extremism”, and references Quilliam, which ironically has a key hand in the Trojan Hoax fiasco. His report about Springfield is formulaic: a school is to be dropped into special measures and those pesky Muslims must have a hand in it. As per his warped norm, he paints a picture where white head teachers are under “non-stop attack” by “radical” (which means Muslim, because only a Muslim can be a radical) governors; Muslims are the evil plotters; Muslims have rows over sex education; Muslims are against Christians and their practices; and Muslims are to blame for the school’s failures too.
