It’s a massive disappointment that head teacher Daniel Smith felt he had to resign in the wake of the Union Jack row.
Of course it wasn’t only the flag that effectively forced him out but also issues surrounding the uniform of pupils at Pimlico Academy in London.
The pupils- two thirds of whom are from ethnic minorities- viewed the Union Jack as racist and used the expression; “There ain’t no black in the Union Jack.”
Putting aside the fact that the first time I heard that expression it was used by the National Front, the pupils had no right to have a view about whether our national flag should be on the school or not.
This is a public building and if the educational leaders want the flag there they should have it. It has NOTHING to do with the pupils. The fact that these dimwits believe the flag is racist is a problem for them and not for the Head.

Smith is a very bright guy. He graduated from Oxford in PPE, did a masters in political theory at LSE and a two year law diploma.
But when he started to bring in more discipline neither the left-wing National Education Union or the left-wing staff liked it.
He wanted the pupils’ Afro hair kept neat and tidy so that it didn’t block the views of others and he wanted the colourful hijabs of Muslim pupils replaced by more down to earth colours.

Not a lot to ask. The pupils also objected- and this I do find hard to believe- that in the history curriculum they were asked to study white kings rather than minority figures.
Really? The UK was all white history until the 1950s.
I wish Mr Smith had stayed and fought. His exit will give power to the Left. And nobody wants that.
