Mini-rant

Schools much teach 'Britishness'.

But only in England.

You see the problem.
"A review of how schools teach citizenship and diversity found there was not enough emphasis on British identity and history."
Teachers, I'm sure you'll agree that any 'review' that didn't find the whole concept of 'citizenship and diversity' teaching to be utter shite really isn't worth reading.

This struck me too Shugster!

But because education is devolved but broadcasting not - and because none of the London meeja know what devolution is or means - none of the EBC news stories mentioned this.

"British History" in England just means English History until 1707, and English History, renamed British, thereafter.
