DfE in hot water for ‘not British to be gay’ tweet

Tory Education Secretary Nicky Morgan is under pressure to apologise after a message posted on her department’s Twitter account suggested it is not British to be gay.
The message from the Department for Education account said: “Nonsense to say schools ‘must teach gay rights.’ We want schools to teach broad curric based on British values.”

The seemingly unprovoked attack on LGBT people sparked a might backlash on Twitter, especially from teachers.

One teacher replied: “Ok — do you think that gay people shouldn’t have rights or children shouldn’t be taught to respect those rights? Or both?”

And another user wrote: “So … inequality and homophobia is a British value? Nice. I’m moving country.”
