Earlier this month I was invited back to the Bishops Stortford High School to do a talk for its Ethics and Citizenship Course. This is a new, mandatory part of the national curriculum, and a good thing too.
I spoke about the role of a whistleblower in a democratic society, and also about the erosion of our democratic freedoms. About 300 pupils attended, and the response was fantastic, with many interesting and intelligent questions. And so there should be — this is the generation that will have to deal with the mess we are making of our civil liberties in this country.
