I just heard the news moments ago: Rachel Booth, the dinner lady at Moor Nook Primary School in Preston, has had her suspension lifted!
As you know, Rachel had been suspended by the school, for the political crime of attending the UK Against Hate march in Manchester last month, a community gathering to renounce terrorism.
Imagine: being suspended from work for attending a peaceful, anti-terrorism march!
Tomorrow was going to be judgment day for Rachel — the school was going to make a decision on her future, and it wasn’t looking good. Rachel herself wasn’t even permitted to attend the school to pick up her own kids!
It was pure bullying. Pure political correctness. And then you got involved.
In less than 24 hours, you and more than 20,000 other people signed the petition to the Head Teacher, Suzanne Clough.
That’s what tipped the balance: you. Thanks for that.
She’s not 100% in the clear yet. But the school is backpedalling furiously.
It’s a real victory for freedom of speech and freedom of association — and the right to express a politically incorrect opinion. What a shame that it took a massive public backlash for Mrs. Clough and the school to do the right thing.
It’s not enough of course. Mrs. Clough and the school should publicly apologize to Rachel. And they should publicly affirm that every Brit is allowed to express themselves — even dinner ladies against terrorism.
P.S. We’re building a movement in the UK — we’re fighting back against political correctness, and against the steady creep of Islam into our public institutions. Thanks for helping to win a battle for Rachel — and for all of us.
