One of the most common, and effective, tricks of the totalitarian regime is to create a label most can agree is unacceptable to the (classically) liberal mind, then paint that label on to any group you want to get rid of. The Soviets did it, the Nazis did it, all psychotic genocidal regimes do it and frankly even moderate and soft post-democratic regimes do it to a lesser degree.
This is the UK doing it. Pretend the EDL are ‘far-right’ and ignore the fact that center-traditional Islam in fact reflects what people think of as ‘far-right’ almost to the letter (loathing of Jews, contempt for women, religious fanatics etc) and then pass laws saying that people who can be called far right, as opposed to those who really are, can be summarily dismissed from any job in government. And of course, in a socialist state like the UK, probably close to 65% of all jobs are government. I believe it was Mark Steyn who pointed out that the British Health Services are the world’s third largest employer after the Chinese military and the India railway company.
Also, if the UK teachers union is anything like the American or Canadian teachers unions it is virtually impossible to fire a teacher for anything short of actual cannibalism of students. So if they can fire them for a trumped up version of political opinion, the UK will have sunk that much deeper into a very bad place indeed.

Scotland’s teaching regulator is facing calls to strike off members of the profession with links to far-right groups such as the British National Party and the Scottish Defence League.
Members of the country’s largest teaching union, the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS), have tabled a motion to their upcoming AGM calling on the General Teaching Council for Scotland and the Scottish Government to “minimise the influence” of such groups in schools.
However, it is expected that delegates at this week’s meeting will go a step further and call for members of the profession with links to extremist groups to be removed from the teaching register.
Currently, teachers working in Scotland’s schools do not have to declare whether they are the member of a political party or other such group.
The General Teaching Council for England was axed after it failed to take action against a BNP activist who described immigrants as “savage animals” on an internet forum.
