You're Nicked

You're NickedGiven the amount of crime that people in Britain now have endure, such as mugging, assault and robbery, it is heartening to know that Nanny's police are doing everything they can to tackle this upswell.

Therefore it should come as no surprise to learn that the Swinton police reacted promptly, and sternly, to a recent "crime" allegedly committed by Codie Scott (14 years old) and arrested her.

Her crime?

Refusing to sit with a group of Asian students, because some of them didn't speak English.

Apparently, expecting one's fellow classmates to speak English is now a race crime.

Codie Stott's family claim that after the arrest, she was forced to spend over 3 hours in a police cell.

Codie attends Harrop Fold High School, in Worsley Greater Manchester (oddly enough in the same local education authority where a 10 year old boy was prosecuted earlier this year for calling a schoolfriend racist names in the playground).

Codie was attending a GCSE science class and was allocated a group to sit with, as she had missed the earlier day due to a hospital appointment.

Codie said:

"She (the teacher) said I had to sit there with five Asian pupils.

Only one could speak English,

so she had to tell that one what to do

so she could explain in their language.

Then she sat me with them and said 'Discuss'

According to Codie, the 5 pupils then began talking in a language she didn't understand, thought to be Urdu, so she went to speak to the teacher.


"I said 'I'm not being funny, but can I change groups

because I can't understand them?'

But she started shouting and screaming,

saying 'It's racist, you're going to get done by the police'

Codie said she went outside to calm down where another teacher found her and, after speaking to her class teacher, put her in isolation for the rest of the day.

The teacher then made a complaint to a police officer based full-time at the school (since when do the police get based full time at schools?).

Over a week after the incident on September 26, she was taken to Swinton police station and placed under arrest.


"They told me to take my laces out of my shoes and remove my jewellery,

and I had my fingerprints and photograph taken.

It was awful

School insiders have reportedly said that at least three of the students Codie refused to sit with had recently arrived in this country, and spoke little English.

The school is now investigating exactly what happened, before deciding what action to take against Codie.

Er shouldn't they have done that before getting her arrested?

One would have thought that they had done enough to punish her already!

Headteacher Dr Antony Edkins said:

"We aim to ensure a caring and tolerant attitude

towards people and pupils of all ethnic backgrounds

and will not stand for racism in any form

Harrop Fold had the worst GCSE results in the entire Salford LEA last year. Only 15% of pupils achieved five good passes, including English and maths, a third of the national average.

Commonsense dictates that non English speaking pupils should not be placed in mainstream education (until they speak English), thereby bringing down the performance of those who do speak English.

Commonsense does not function in Nanny's Britain.

A well run school, with mature and sensible teachers, would have dealt with this matter internally. Bringing in the police shows that they have lost control, and care only about form rather than substance.

We are being cowed into submission by the state, and the fear that whatever we say or do will cause us to be reported by our fellow citizens and to be arrested by Nanny's police.

The police state is alive and well!

    Without a word of a lie, this kind of thing makes me want to vomit blood! If I were a member of that girl's family I'd be seeking legal advice on suing/prosecuting everyone involved in that debacle.

    The scuffers commit an abhorrence against a young girl for allegedly daring to commit thoughtcrime against a minority yet they can't be ar$ed to even turn out when someone is being robbed, burgled or beaten.

    I notice also that the rules don't apply to 'minorities'. Has anything been done about the rabble who were inciting murder outside Westminster Abbey last week? Nah. Thought not.

    I've had enough of this toilet of a country. This isn't nannying it's beyond that - it's plain despicable. I'm off.

    What's the betting that, although it's clearly obvious the poor girl has been 'punished' enough, the school will force her into a week's worth of internal exclusion? I can just see it happening.

    Christ, they expect us to be omnilingual now? What the fuck next?

    "Her crime?

    Refusing to sit with a group of Asian students, because some of them didn't speak English."

    Just as a small point of clarification, the article indicated that her crime was not so much REFUSING to sit with Asian students as REQUESTING to be seated with English speaking students. That, at least, is the impression I got from the article. Evidently, that request was enough to brand her as dangerous hate-monger in need of confinement. The world has taken an ominous turn.

    All children in mainstream, state schools should be able to receive instruction in English.

    Every pupil in such a school should have the right to receive instruction in English without the standard of teaching being impaired by the presence of pupils (or teachers for that matter)incapable of adequately conversing in English.

    For children of refugees, the state should provide free, accelerated English teaching to bring them up to scratch. This benfits the the children and their future classmates.

    For voluntary immigrants, they should pay for private English lessons to bring their children up to a certain standard before their children can be admitted to state schools or pay for private education in their own language. The latter is clearly less desirable from an integration perspective but could be appropriate in certain circumstances (e.g. the child has nearly finshed school and intends to return to home country) and far be it for others to prescribe (nanny) immigrants in to how best lead their lives when this doesn't impinge on the rights of others, as sending a non-English speaking pupil to an English state school does.

    The significant part of his/her post is.."I'm off.."

    I have heard many Americans, Canadians and Aussies say that all the smart Brits left Britain, years ago.

    I'll bet the person who made that comment is a young person who will be welcomed in the Civilized World.

    Brits, wake the fuck up.

    I'm having trouble believing it!

    Two observations.

    Firstly is is clearly absurd to follow through with any prosecution based on the story as presented so far. Or indeed any variant of it come to that. The other students were probably quite pleased to get rid of someone who did not speak their language.

    Secondly Codie's parents SHOULD be prosecuted for lumbering her with such a silly name.

    Thirdly some of the English only arguments might be considered a bit suspect when a number of English parents move to Wales mainly to have their offspring educated using 'the medium of Welsh' on the basis that the education available is better.

    Does that make them refugees? Would the exisiting student have problems with newcomers who only speak English?

  9. Anonymous2:14 PM

    Quite clearly, English people mad enough to want to move to Wales would not be refugees. If the school they choose for their offspring is Welsh speaking then they would be obliged to bring their children's Welsh proficiency up to the required standard at their expense before they could attend the school so as not to disadvantage the existing pupils.

    I can't imagine why any English person would want to endure the hostility of living in Wales and to saddle their children with a useless language when they can move to parts of England where the education is of a very high standard.

    By the way, Grant, when I received my education entirely through the medium of English, other than French and Latin, "two observations" tended to preclude the use of "thirdly".

    "Please tell me this is satire or some kind of work of fiction"

    Alas,no. This is what George Orwell was warning us about in his book '1984' albeit 12 years later than he suggested.

    The Welsh scenario does sound odd I admit and the Welsh language is a bit 'lite', to use a modern techno derivation, in words for certain things and yes I know it sound very weird BUT since the schools were quite exclusive, due to the language rules, the level of education obtained was, apparently, very high. Certainly when compared to most schools in the surrounding area. Apparently those who worked in Bristol found it worth commuting across the bridges every day rather than have their offspring in schools in Avon.

    The information may bo wrong now but it was certainly the case about 10 years or so ago.

    As for my "thirdly" ...

    a. My education was so poor I can't count.

    b. My age is such that I can't count any more.

    c. I thought of something else as I wrote and forgot to go back and change my first line.

    d. I thought of something else as I wrote and could not be bothered to go backa and change the first line.

    e. it is a test of Ken's readership to see if anyone notices.

    You can pick one or more of a. through e. - they probably all apply.

    Now, had I gone to a Welsh school ...
