Iain Dale, who publishes an influential political blog, said: “Not all of us want children emerging from the educational system with a BBC-engendered outlook.”

Says it all, doesn't it?

Another way for the government to bore the pants off future voters. Bore enough people and nobody will vote. I'm waiting for Saga to teach grannies to suck eggs.

I don't remember signing up for political indoctrination when I paid my license fee. What the hell is the BBC doing sticking their nose into this?
