BNP teacher banned for Muslim jibe

The Mail is reporting that a teacher who told a class of teenage girls that he was ‘allergic’ to Muslims and they ‘worshipped the devil’ will be banned from the profession for life this week…

Self-styled cleric the Rev Robert West, who stood for the British National Party in the General Election, made the comments during a discussion on the use of cavalry in the Crusades. 

When a pupil said she was allergic to horses, Mr West replied: ‘I’m allergic to Mohammedans.’

And he told another class at Walton Girls High School in Grantham, Lincolnshire: ‘Muslims worship the devil.’

Andrew Colman of the National College for Teaching and Leadership said his remarks were ‘unacceptable’.

West will be banned by the Department for Education this week…
