I’m sure we all know the BNP’s national organiser/party manager/errand boy Adam Walker. Recently he was banned for life from teaching by Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, after Walker’s unfortunate run-in with some young boys last year led him to chase them in his Range Rover, and slash their bicycle tyres with a knife he just so happened to be carrying.
He was sentenced to six months imprisonment, suspended for 18 months, after he admitted dangerous driving and possessing a bladed instrument.
Walker was described as a BNP staff manager, whose duties included duties for a BNP member of the European Parliament. He was also banned from driving for 12 months. The “BNP member of the European parliament” is none other than Andrew Brons, so there was no forthcoming good reference from his office.
In June of this year education Secretary Michael Gove over-ruled a two year teaching ban on Walker and imposed a lifetime ban on him ever returning to the classroom.
Walker is by all accounts, “devastated” by this ban. In a recent interview with the BNP’s bore-drawer Simon Darby , Walker spoke about how in other “similar cases” other teachers have received just two years suspension from the classroom.
No matter how hard we try, we can find no other cases of a 44 year old teacher, drunk, driving after boys aged from ten to 12 years of age, with a knife, and attacking their bikes.
The BNP has been saying that the life time ban is politically motivated, because Walker is one of their members. Funnily enough, they didn’t say the same about Adam’s brother, Mark Walker, another banned teacher.
Today, Adam Walker announced that he is to sue the Education Secretary, Michael Gove. Not as daft as we originally thought, Adam has decided not to use the services of the BNP’s in-house legal losers, and will represent himself instead. One idiot is better than two in such serious cases, obviously. Plus, there is little love lost between Walker and Patrick Harrington by all accounts.
So, we wish Adam all the best with this quest. There’s not many things I admire the Tories for when it comes to the treatment of state education in this country, but the banning of a teacher who chases after children while carrying a knife, is one of the better things that they have done. Regardless of whether that teacher is a member of the BNP or not.
The recorder at Walker’s trial, Ben Nolan, stated that his actions could have killed those young boys. I doubt many BNP members will be willing to cough up cash for this face-saving adventure by their increasingly desperate wannabe-leader.
