Was totally horrified when i foud this! here is the link;
Read the article carefully and follow the links to the factsheet website, this is for teachers to teach young kids!
Some of the statements on here are crazy, but the worrying thing is that thisis pretty much brain washing as the kids get given information that is
not totally accurate,
eg,EU fanatics want you to sing this dire anthem
The Sun, 3 February 2004, page 6
Britons face having to sing a European anthem praising the EU "motherland," it was revealed last night. Europe’s top bureaucrat Romano Prodi,
right, has been given new words to go with the existing European hymn, Beethoven’s Ode To Joy. But Austrian academic Dr Peter Roland’s lyrics
sparked fury with their Soviet and Nazi overtones. There are ominous echoes of Stalin’s imperialist Soviet regime in the line "…freedom for its
people in a bigger motherland."
There are no plans for these lyrics to be used for the EU anthem. The set of lyrics referred to in the article were merely a personal gift to European
Commission President Romano Prodi that, incidentally, he was given during a trip to Vienna in February 2004 to receive a humanitarian achievement
award from the Rabbinical Centre of Europe.
So there will be an anthem!!!!! just not with those offensive words! terrible!!
Then in the main article itself
oint out that the class may have heard of laws that the European Parliament have tried to make that have upset some people in the UK.
Add that a significant amount of these 'facts' are actually untrue.
There is somthing very dubious going on here, is this a deeper insite into the BBC being a political tool rather than a "free" media for the
