|« Happy Saint Andrew's Day||EU Mythbuster: No. 5 - We're All Subjects »|
In her continuing quest to destroy the educations of hundreds of thousands of children, Caitriona Ruane is to change the law so that Northern Ireland's schools can no longer give preference to Northern Ireland-resident children when it comes to allocating places.
She claims the existing law "may" breach EU equality rules. I'm fairly confident that's a downright lie (call me unparliamentary if you will, but there is no excuse for deliberately misleading the public). The EU equality rules deal with race, religion, sexual discrimination etc. In other words you can't discriminate against a person because of who they are. They do not prohibit member nations from providing services for those resident within their own borders.
Just another example of Sinn Fein not only abusing their position but trying to pull a fast one on the public by making some vague, passing reference to equality and passing legislation that has bugger all to do with equality.
Obviously we'll all have to pay the costs for those living in the Republic who want to avail of our education system (it's ok, by the time Ms Ruane has finished with our schools they'll be so bad they'll be running for the border as fast as their legs will carry them anyway). The worst of it is that those worst affected by this will presumably be those who vote for nationalist parties; the kids losing out in all this will be those looking for places in popular schools in the largely nationalist border areas.
Oh and Ms Ruane lives in the Republic but sends her kids to a (grammar!) school in Northern Ireland. So she's got a conflict of interest, I believe she's lying about the equality legislation (and it seems that O'Neill also has his suspicions) and she's a fucking hypocrite to boot! (as well as an ignorant cunt)
Can someone send her back to Colombia?
