I was on a panel at an illuminating debate at Queen’s School, Bushey near Watford run by the Institute of Ideas and came away very depressed. It was dominated by ideologues seeking conflict. Old style socialists spoke of the British airways cabin crew as an oppressed class of workers fighting for justice. Young men shouted hate against Israel and America. The more hostile the rhetoric, the more applause came from the audience. I hope it didn’t reflect sentiment in most of our schools.
