    Default Unionist Fury at Hunger Strikers being mentioned in Education Curriculum

    The UUP has called for the immediate withdrawal of a teaching guide exploring the hunger strikes, which party leader Mike Nesbitt says is “utterly, despicably one-sided”.

    Party leader Mr Nesbitt told the Assembly yesterday that he wanted the teaching guide, which accompanies the novel Bog Child, removed from the curriculum. It is aimed at 11-14 year-olds.

    “How dare the Department of Education ask pupils to put themselves in the shoes of hunger strikers!” he said
    UUP fury over

    It seems Nesbitt and the UUP are determined to censor history and distort the learning of children in the six counties.

    Whether some unionists like it or not, prison represents a significant part of the history of the northern conflict.

    You cannot be expected to understand or learn about it, if you’re forbidden from putting yourself in another’s shoes.

    Nesbitt in stereotypical unionist fury over a book he admits he hasn't even read. Increasingly unionism is donkeys led by asses.

    Ok its Northern Ireland.
    While I think those people are horrible we should still learn about them. Although I must stress that what we learn should be minimal and I think that they should not be promoted.

    Laughable, it shows the desperation in SF/IRA, but I suppose given the census etc they have to try some way to convince the future unicorns that the 'cause' was worthwhile...

    If St Patrick's Primary Donaghmore stock this book and also fly their Italian flag then the fury from unionists will reach thunderous proportions.
    Schools should only stock books that extol the knowledge of the earth being 6,000 years old and that the unionists are descendants of the lost tribe of Israel. Not forgetting of course that Darwin was in the Ra.

    Numerous failed terrorist campaigns are not a conflict.
