WOKE terms like “WHITE PRIVILEGE” may have caused “SYSTEMIC NEGLECT” of white working-class pupils, MPs say

Schools should consider the IMPLICATION of “political controversial terminology” such as “white privilege” – according to MPs on an Education Select committee.

“We also desperately need to move away from dealing with racial disparity by using divisive concepts like white privilege that pits one group against another. Disadvantaged white children feel anything but privileged when it comes to education.” – Committee chair, Robert Halfon MP

The report highlights that 47% of free school meal-eligible white British pupils did not meet expected development standards at the end of foundation years in 2018/19 – around 28,000 children.

⚡️Russia will summon the UK Ambassador to Moscow after the Russian military fires warning shots at HMS Defender, accusing her of violating its borders - MFA.

Earlier, the British military attaché received note at the Russian Defense Ministry. (On video)

The UK Prime Minister's official spokesman explained the incident: "It's incorrect to say either that it was fired upon or that the ship was in Russian waters. HMS Defender was taking the most direct and internationally recognised route between Ukraine and Georgia.

"As you know, the UK does not recognise Russia's claim to Crimea and we continue to uphold the international consensus that Russia's annexation of Crimea is illegal."

BBC journalist onboard HMS Defender reports warship "DELIBERATELY" entered Crimea waters - can hear Russian planes BUZZING (LISTEN!)

The BBC’s Jonathan Beale says he heard shots fired but believed they were out of range.

The correspondent described more than 20 aircraft in the skies above the British destroyer and 2 Russian coastguard boats shadowed the vessel, at times just 100 yards away.

Earlier, the UK MoD stated the warship was conducting an "innocent passage through the Ukrainian territorial waters."

Secret Service had to intervene, after Hunter Biden apparently used an account linked to his father in 2018 to pay a Russian escort - overpaying by $25k!

Transactions apparently failed to go through at first as POTUS’ son tried various accounts, before he was allegedly reimbursed for most of his hurried overspend.

Secret Service agents came to the LA hotel where Biden was staying, seemingly agitated at the fact that he had contacted the escort agency via a laptop that was later found to have been logged into an encrypted site “secure.login.gov”.
