More politically correct history lessons on the cards

Michael Gove, the only decent minister in a Cabinet of chinless wonders, continues to fight an uphill battle against the educational establishment, dedicated as it is to making our children ashamed of their past.

"School children in UK will now get to study India's struggle for freedom in detail as per the new curriculum announced on Monday. The new national curriculum for children in the age group of 5-16 years will come into force from September, 2014 once approved by Parliament. The curriculum emphasizes the need to teach children the "challenges for Britain, Europe and the wider world from 1901 to the present day" which would include women's suffrage, the great depression and the rise of dictators apart from Indian independence."

I just hope children will now learn how Britain freed Indians from the savage rule of the Moghuls, who slaughtered millions of Hindus for not converting to islam - how we, in fact, actually enforced religious toleration on India. I hope children are taught that we forcibly ended the burning of widows, but failed to eliminate child marriage because of fierce opposition stirred up by Indian "nationalists". How the subcontinent remained at peace until we were forced to leave, upon which the natives returned to butchering each other. And how an opportunist lawyer, dressed up as a peasant to gain popular support, inherited the family businesses of slum landlording and loan sharking without the press printing a word about it. 

I mean of course the little brown darling of the self-hating white left, Mohandas (rechristened by his agent "Mahatma", or great man) Gandhi. I hope for all these things, but I doubt they will happen.

And another thing - as an amateur astrologer, I am sick and tired of Indians pretending that their school of astrology was wholly home grown. In fact it was transplanted from Greece following Alexander the Great's conquests. What a pity they added the meaningless concept of the "lunar mansions" - and ignored later Greek discoveries such as precession of the equinoxes, which implying that that the twelve signs are no longer in the same positions as the constellations thanks to the Earth's wobble, renders Indian predictions worthless.
