Parents’ fury as political ‘propaganda’ is beamed into thousands of primary schools – with even Boris Johnson surprised a pro-Brexit message featuring him is shown on digital noticeboards

Parents have been left furious over claims digital noticeboards in 3,000 primary schools have been beaming pro-government propaganda to children. The Daily Mail reports.

Labour MP Stella Creasy claimed parents in her east London constituency of Walthamstow were ‘extremely concerned’ their children had been exposed to the messages. 

Ms Creasy said to the PM: ‘Earlier today parents in Walthamstow contacted me extremely concerned about the content of a presentation about the Prime Minister and his proposals on Brexit that had been broadcast on what transpires to be 3,000 digital noticeboards in primary schools around this country without the prior consent of the schools.”

A Government spokesman told MailOnline they are not behind the videos. 

They said: ‘These videos are not part of the government’s ‘Get Ready for Brexit’ public information campaign. There are no plans to show any part of the campaign in schools.’
