No murders in this one.
Compare and contrast with the Zinoviev letter. The initial Trojan Horse letter is an obvious fake. It combined Islamophobia with the UK government wish to put in place additional counter-extremism measures.
Panorama covered the explosive aspects of supposed radical Muslims trying to plot to control several schools. The BBC has previous form in misreporting – the Daniel Morgan murder being a case in point.
Slum schools are alike, whether in Alum Rock or Peckham. Someone has to be the baddie, in 1974 it was the Irish Catholic working class community, by 2014 it was the Pakistani Muslims.
Episode Two opens with an examination of who would have written the Trojan Horse letter. Rizvanna Darr became the lead suspect. One cannot mention Darr, as Sonia Sodha of the Gruaniad will make allegations of subconscious phallocentric oppression of wimmin.
Episode Four – the role of Michael Gove, Islamophobia and the Tory party.
Episode Five – Richy Thompson and the British Humanist Society (Humanists UK) fare badly. The use of a transcript on this podcast is a positive break through.
Episode Six – the podcast and this blogge does not exculpate bad members of the Ummah, for instance Mohammed Akunjee is a bent solicitor.
Episode Seven – cherchez l’argent, the audit raises its head as a focus of resignations and forged letters of resignation. Furzana Bibi caught on CCTV/spy camera entering Adderley school with letters.
Episode Eight – the character assassination of Achmad DaCosta. What part did Mark Walters play in the entire Trojan Horse affair? The dramatis personae who support the government line are mired in mendacity. Careers and reputations were murdered if nothing else. Racism, the role of investigative journalism, oppressive profiling of a faith group. the Trojan Horse affair has it all in spades.
Tomorrow, back to murder with S Town.
