Comments from teacher in Question Time audience about government’s shameful attempt to punish teachers and nurses if they fail to spot children at risk of involvement in knife crime has been shared thousands of times on social media
An intervention by a teacher in last night’s BBC Question Time has gone viral on social media after being shared by a well-known Twitter activist.
The video shows a London teacher giving a Tory guest some home truth about the government’s latest blame-shifting nonsense – an attempt to make education and NHS staff personally responsible if they fail to spot a young person at risk of involvement in knife crime:
Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright attempted to shrug off the comments, but by the end of the intervention he looked distinctly ill at ease – no doubt the huge audience applause played its role.
So far, the original tweet by activist ‘Rachael_Swindon’ has been shared almost 7,500 times and the video has received almost 800,000 views.
The video needs to be even more widely seen.
