The British communal educational institution has always been heavily weighted by left wing doctrine.

The 'higher' universities and public schools, annually churn out the hypocritical, invariably wealthy, lefty element that subscribe to a communistic styled regime, just as long as it doesn't affect their social standing.

Know your place plebeian!

Now the Queen gets cancelled: Oxford's Magdalen College students vote to remove portrait of monarch from common room because she 'represents recent colonial history' and replace it with 'art by or of other inspirational people' 

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9664583/Oxford-University-college-votes-remove-portrait-Queen-common-room.html

What's the betting they'll replace The Queen with George Floyd or Meghan Markle?

Now wokeism is going for our birds and insects

A new breed of nature-spotters is lobbying to change the names of species with links to slavery and colonialism

By Joe Shute,
SENIOR FEATURE WRITER
15 July 2021 • 5:00am

The Woke Cult:  Have Your Say - Page 2 14072110
The once peaceful pursuit has all of a sudden had the binoculars trained inwards

Of all the havoc gypsy moths wreak – ransacking entire forests by chewing tree leaves bare – the insects are now at the centre of a battle bigger still: nature’s culture war.

The species is now only to be referred to as Lymantria dispar after a review from the Entomological Society of America (ESA), which concluded that some insect names “may be inappropriate or offensive” – in this case, towards the Romani people. The gypsy ant has met the same fate, while the Oriental rat flea, Asian needle ant and the West Indian cane weevil are all subject to revision from the ESA’s “Better Common Names Project”, which is asking for the public’s help in identifying potentially offensive terms.

This battle is not just applied to mites, but birds – and the birdwatching community – too. The once peaceful pursuit has all of a sudden had the binoculars trained inwards as hundreds of names of species of birds, which have persisted for centuries, may be scrubbed out of history due to their colonial links.

The debate was prompted by a petition in the US last year calling for the removal of eponymous bird names that celebrate the colonialists who discovered them. Two birds have already had their names changed: the McCown’s longspur (named after John McCown, a Confederate general in the civil war) was retitled the thick-billed longspur; another species of wildfowl previously known as the oldsquaw has since been renamed the long-tailed duck, as the previous moniker was deemed offensive to indigenous groups.

The group insisting on the changes, Bird Names for Birders, has received thousands of signatures on a petition calling for more “harmful colonial” names of species to be removed. There is even talk of renaming the 116-year-old National Audubon Society (the US equivalent of the RSPB) due to the links to slavery of its founder, John James Audubon.

Campaigners argue that eponymous common names are “essentially verbal statues” – and therefore must fall.

The Woke Cult:  Have Your Say - Page 2 16262810

The debate is beginning to take hold on this side of the Atlantic: last November, the RSPB invited the London-based Flock Together, a birdwatching collective for people of colour, to take over their official Instagram account to raise awareness of “problematic bird names”.

Among the species highlighted in the various posts was the Blyth’s reed warbler, named after the 19th- century British zoologist Edward Blyth, who traded wild animals in India to fund his ornithological work. Another was the MacQueen’s bustard, named after the British army officer General Thomas MacQueen, who collected animals across India and shot one of the birds, which he later donated to the Natural History Museum (a common practise at the time).

Officially Flock Together is not calling for the renaming of birds, preferring instead that their full history should be better explained alongside the traditional eponym. But one of the founders of the group, Nadeem Perera, 27, says that he would be happy to see some names go. “On a personal level I wouldn’t like to see any human being’s name given to an animal,” he says. “I would like to see nature described in terms of nature, not in terms of human history.”

The Woke Cult:  Have Your Say - Page 2 Telemm88
Nadeem Perera is co-founder of the group Officially Flock Together

Yet the reality is that “there are hundreds of bird names on the back of dubious characters”, says Bo Bealey, a leading authority on the history of eponyms and co-author of The Eponym Dictionary of Birds. “I can think of one convicted paedophile, several murderers, a number of Nazis and very prominent American racists let alone those who wilfully massacred other people. There are a huge number of colonialists who were not nice people.”

The historian, 72, does not believe that any bird should be renamed, likening it to toppling statues and urging that “re-writing history is a very dangerous thing”. Far better, he argues, to provide more explanatory detail alongside the names.

The idea of eponyms was invented by the 18th-century Swedish naturalist and explorer Carl Carl Linnaeus, who developed a uniform system of classifying organisms through genus and species names.

Over the course of subsequent centuries, as European powers colonised the world, it led to a raft of new species being named after the individuals who discovered them. There is little argument that the actions of many of those explorers do not stand up well to modern scrutiny.

One 19th-century explorer, for example, James Sligo Jameson (a scion of the famous whisky dynasty), has three birds named after him, including the crimson Jameson’s firefinch. As the only Irish officer in Stanley’s infamous expedition to explore the Congo river basin, Jameson writes in his diaries of leading a forced march of natives and drawing sketches of a 10-year-old girl he had bought being stabbed and dismembered by a cannibal tribe.

Alfred Russel Wallace, his fellow Victorian naturalist, is credited along, with Charles Darwin, for developing the theory of natural evolution and has the Wallace’s owlet-nightjar and five other birds named after him. His writing of his expeditions frequently include the n-word (common parlance at the time) and he also describes shooting “a wild woman of the woods” during an 1855 expedition to the Malay archipelago, and caring for her baby afterwards. Historians dispute whether he was in fact writing about an orangutan.

The Woke Cult:  Have Your Say - Page 2 16262811

Bealey believes the campaign to rename birds “is a bit of a nonsense. We would have to rename not just birds but a whole plethora of things which have taken on somebody’s name. You would have to go through with a fine toothcomb and find you are knocking off huge numbers of people because they were colonialist and ignorantly racist, as most people of power were in the 19th century.”

One of the birds in the sights of the campaigners in the US is the Townsend’s warbler, named after the ornithologist John Kirk Townsend, whose journals detail raiding traditional Native American burial grounds in the early 19th century and excavating skulls for scientific studies.

The British naturalists Barbara and Richard Mearns have written various books examining both Townsend’s legacy and the work of others commemorated in bird names. An updated version of their book, Biographies for Birdwatchers, is due to be published this year.

While welcoming the debate around eponyms and being “sympathetic” to removing a few of the worst offenders, the pair insist that they are against any wholesale changes.

As they point out, airbrushing individuals from history because they do not fit a modern code of morality quickly becomes a dangerous game. For example, Barbara says, will in time there be calls to remove Sir David Attenborough’s various eponyms due to his extensive air travel?

“Why over-politicise ornithology?” She asks. “In many countries, a passion for birding and conservation brings people from different religious and cultural groups together to protect birds and their habitats. I think we would do better to treat names as accidents of history and work together to protect the birds.”

Yet in an increasingly fractious debate that is not enough for some. For campaigners, any talk that the names should be allowed to remain is seen as for the birds.

Howz about letting the woke cult loose on politicians? Let's re-name the premier, Boris Johnson, to Doris Monsoon.

What's to become of Her Majesty's personal rose - is it destined to be re-named Meghan's Minxerie or Harry the Horrible?

Metropolitan Police considering gender-neutral uniforms

David Brown
Tuesday August 31 2021, 12.01am BST, The Times

Britain’s biggest police force is consulting on issuing gender-neutral uniforms to comply with equality law as it was urged to end a “legacy of the sexist past”.

Metropolitan Police officers with “protected characteristics”, including those identifying as non-binary and gender fluid, are being asked about their uniform requirements.

Similar reviews are likely to be carried out by forces across the country after an employment tribunal ruled last year that the gender-fluid identity of Rose Taylor, a Jaguar Land Rover engineer, was a protected characteristic.

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, said in 2017 that there were no plans to introduce gender-neutral uniforms for the 30,000 officers in the capital’s force but campaigners claim that police chiefs could be in breach of the 2010 Equality Act if they failed to consider the implication of compulsory uniforms for non-binary and gender-fluid officers.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said that the force was consulting officers before agreeing a new contract to supply uniforms.

“The Met is proud to have a diverse workforce and has always ensured it adheres to the Equalities Act 2010. Subsequently, its uniforms are designed to cater for officers with protected characteristics, while also being practical and looking professional,” he said.

“The Met’s contract with its current uniform provider is due to expire in 2023. Before agreeing a new contract, the Met is considering what it requires of its uniforms to ensure officers are best able to carry out their job, while continuing to adhere to equality law.

“The Met is seeking the views of police officers and staff who have protected characteristics, including those who identify as non-binary or gender fluid. This important feedback will be taken into consideration.”

Peter Tatchell, a veteran equality campaigner, suggested that there should be one uniform for all officers. He told The Sun: “Separate uniforms for officers is a legacy of the sexist past.”

At present uniformed male officers wear helmets or flat caps and ties and women wear bowler hats and cravats.

Northamptonshire police introduced reinforced “bump caps” in 2017 because “gender-based headgear” was acting as a “barrier to the non-binary transgender community”. They were phased out 18 months later after Nick Adderley, the new chief constable, called them “scruffy”.

A Dyfed-Powys police gender work group raised concerns that thin uniform shirts would reveal if an officer was wearing a chest binder and highlighted differences in nail varnish rules.

North Yorkshire Police: Hijab made part of force uniform

Published 25 November 2020

Two police constables who designed a hijab to be part of their uniform have celebrated making it a reality.

North Yorkshire Police called the move an "important change" and highlighted the need to represent the communities they serve.

PC Uzma Amireddy, who designed the headscarf with PC Arfan Rahouf, became the first officer to wear a hijab while on duty with the force in 2019.

She said the move "completes me as a Muslim female and as a police officer".

Those behind the two-piece design, with a section covering the head and another covering the neck, said it would be safe to wear if an officer faced a violent confrontation.

PC Amireddy said: "I am a British Muslim, I want to serve the British community and I love the job that I do as a police officer, but it shouldn't hinder me in practising my religion.

"I didn't want to leave half of myself at home when I go in to do the job that I love."

Other forces such as the Metropolitan Police in London and Police Scotland offer the option of a uniform hijab.

PC Rahouf, force operational lead for faith and belief, said he was "immensely proud" of the design.

"We've now been invited to have conversations in a national forum regarding regarding this hijab and whether it becomes part of national uniform," he said.

"It's fit for purpose, sends the right message, professional and it makes the person wearing it feel valued."

A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: "It's really important for North Yorkshire Police to make sure that the uniform for each and every police officer is fit for purpose.

"We need to be more representative of the communities we serve, in order for us to be an inclusive workforce and deliver a better service to all of our communities."

NHS managers have embraced Critical Race Theory. It will backfire tremendously

These instructions are inherently racist, singling out a large percentage of the UK population based on their skin colour

CALVIN ROBINSON
6 September 2021 • 2:48pm

According to headlines this week, the NHS needs billions in extra funding, despite seeing the biggest funding boost since the Blair years. So where is all that money going?

I’d suggest that a fair bit of it is being splashed on bloat and waste. NHS trusts up and down the country have recruited so-called ‘Diversity, Equality and Inclusion’ experts - and we must use that term expert loosely. Forgetting for a moment that the job title is an oxymoron, some of these people are using their time - and tens of thousands in public funds for their salaries - to essentially spread anti-white propaganda.

Take one of the blogs found last week on an official NHS website, titled “Dear white people in the UK” and published by the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion lead at the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

The article is ostensibly aimed at reducing racism in healthcare by encouraging senior leaders - made up, at least in part, of medics - to discuss race more often. But the language tells a different story. “Don’t say ‘I’m not political’ to excuse yourself from this conversation,” says one of the bullet points. “Work on your empathy,” says another. And to top it all off, doctors and nurses, as if they aren’t already distressed enough having worked through a global pandemic, are told to “be uncomfortable” when confronted by a person of colour.

This material is inherently divisive, singling out a large percentage of the UK population based on their skin colour. It’s condescending and dare I say racist. The idea is that only white people are racist when we know, of course, that anyone can be racist, and anyone can experience racism. This school of thought originates from Critical Race Theory (CRT), an American academic-thought experiment that attempts to solve racial inequalities but, in actual fact, ends up exacerbating them.

While the Equalities Minister has made efforts to keep this toxic theory away from school curriculums, and the civil service has removed it from its equality/diversity training, the NHS appears to be embracing it.

The blog post, published on the ‘NHS Senior Leadership Onboarding and Support’ page. It features in the first paragraph a university-style reading list for health professionals which includes Robin Diangelo’s ‘White Fragility’ - a book that suggests all white people have an innate “complicity and investment” in racism. Is this now a formal position held by the NHS, that white staff are practically born racist? I’d humbly advise NHS leaders not to explore that particular rabbit hole.

It is absolutely ludicrous to suggest that healthcare professionals, currently dealing with an historic backlog of patients which will take years to clear, have the time or mental capacity to indulge in these pointless academic debates. The recommended reading is not exactly a broad and balanced canon either.

Although the temptation to laugh at such absurd thinking is strong, we cannot shrug off the Critical Race Theory branch of identity politics as ‘woke nonsense’, because it’s more dangerous than that. It’s divisive, discriminatory, and - critically for the NHS - damn well expensive. By redefining racism from ‘prejudice or discrimination against someone based on their race/ethnicity to ‘a power struggle between white people and non-whites’, grifters are able to peddle racial discrimination whilst calling themselves anti-racist activists.

We must not let our medics be bullied into capitulating to this snake oil. This kind of racism has no place in the NHS or any other public institution.

This is nothing new, it's all been around for decades - only now have all the 'ethnic' groups been pulled together under one global colourful umbrella.

It's all so unnecessary, the simple solution is to appoint on ability alone. If a so called disadvantaged groupie fails to pass the test then clearly they are not up to the job so shouldn't be appointed!

If I remember rightly, the Equal Opportunities policy was a heavily influenced left wing initiative, demanding a percentage of ethnic groups in all work places. Just plain ridiculous!

Add to that, some (read many) members of ethnic minority groups (majority in more recent times) take unfair advantage of the leniency they are shown. Get away with it only once and they start making unreasonable demands.

A situation very much out of hand - a sillyism that should never have started in the first place. It should be stopped now, not propagated.

No part of the history of the great game of cricket is any longer sacrosanct. In the interests of what the MCC calls reinforcing "cricket’s status as an inclusive game for all", the ancient term ‘batsman’ is to be replaced in the laws (of which MCC is supposedly ‘custodian’) by the revolting word ‘batter’.

I'll go along with that, providing it's beer batter guzzle !

Why the need to change history and the English language just for the sake of a disgruntled few?

Where does this lot fit in with the grand scheme..
