Is Tomlinson right to ban the phrase 'Trojan Horse' in Birmingham? Or is this just a cover up? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...BANNED-Birmingham-unhelpful-city-schools.html The phrase ‘Trojan Horse scandal’ has been banned in Birmingham because it is ‘unhelpful’ to the city and its schools, its education commissioner has revealed. Sir Mike Tomlinson said he introduced the ban following negative publicity over how hardliners infiltrated state schools in the city and tried to impose an Islamic agenda. He said the phrase, which he refused to even say himself, was damaging morale among teachers and even hurting recruitment to schools.
