Re: Bomb the terrorists!
Shouldn't all education in the UK be 100% secular with no religious connection?
In an ideal world, maybe. But to try and enforce any such thing would be oppressive, and oppression is precisely what religion (and not least religious extremism) thrives on.
Twenty years ago, religion was basically harmless in the UK (except NI). The C of E, not having faced any real oppression or threat for centuries, had become toothless and more-or-less benign (as it still is, compared to most of the alternatives).
Then came Blair, who played with it (and of course with our constitution) like a small boy with his toys, and unleashed Us-and-Them. How long will it take to tame Blair's terror? Well, for a historical parallel, how long was it from the era of real Catholic threat - the Armada, the Gunpowder Plot - to the Northern Ireland peace agreement?
