Another great, grey concrete slab is about to be added to the Berlin Wall of social control within which Nicola Sturgeon’s one-party state has immured the slowly suffocating liberties of Scots. Extreme leftist indoctrination is to be introduced compulsorily into Scottish schools, inspired by the Marxist movement Black Lives Matter.

The SNP manifesto for the Scottish election contains the pledge: “We will create a new programme of anti-racist education in schools, including support for teachers’ professional development, allowing every school to access high-quality anti-racist education. To track progress, we will improve the reporting and publication of data on racist incidents in schools.”
