Default history written by the victors...?

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/ed...ry-795711.html

Britain's biggest teachers' union has accused the Ministry of Defence of breaking the law over a lesson plan drawn up to teach pupils about the Iraq war. The National Union of Teachers claims it breaches the 1996 Education Act, which aims to ensure all political issues are treated in a balanced way.

Ha, ha... the American spelling of "programme" in the lesson plan is suggestive...

What kind of a crackpot scheme is it for the MOD to be getting involved in kiddie education??? I mean, some tax-pounds are being used to pay someone to write this crap??? Is it part of the new "British Identity" campaign?????
