Legal challenge to Defra over Gore film.

The government faces a legal challenge for sending every
secondary school in England

A father from Kent, Stuart Dimmock, has lodged papers at London's
High Court seeking judicial review. He is reportedly also seeking to prevent
schools receiving the DVDs.

The Department for Education and Skills confirmed on
Thursday it had sent out a resource pack for science, geography and citizenship
lessons, as we reported here
on Wednesday. 

We are upset that the BBC
reporting on this issue remains bias, with no balance and only repeating word for
word the Defra press release. There is no alternative view to the Defra plan, no comments from opposition spokespersons, and no interview with the litigant.

However, it comes a no surprise to us, especially following
the very one sided Labour bias reporting on the elections yesterday, allowing
John Reid to set the agenda for the News24 coverage.
