CHAOS in Council Meeting Over Mandatory Sex Education Lessons.
Police clear public gallery and councillors were held back for ‘safety reasons’ as ‘extraordinary’ Council meeting erupts into chaos!
On Thursday 25th August, an emergency meeting was called by five Gwynedd councillors: Louise Hughes, Eryl Jones-Williams, Angela Russell, Gruff Williams and Rob Triggs. The councillors claimed that the sex education scheme could have “potentially very significant consequences for both parents and children….as well as to our teachers, our constituents, and the Council”.
This meeting came about after some parents threatened to withdraw their kids from school following the campaign by Public Child Protection Wales. A leaflet distributed by the group alleged that the curriculum could introduce young children to ideas such as “self-stimulation, masturbation, bondage and anal sex”.
Public Child Protection Wales are a group of highly skilled and highly motivated parents. They are very well qualified to discuss this curriculum and very educated on the subject however, a Welsh Government spokesperson described the leaflet as “full of misinformation and unevidenced, incorrect claims”, and said children would “only learn topics that are appropriate to their age and development”. Claims that the ‘spokesperson’ doesn’t appear qualified to make.
At the meeting, Cllr Hughes proposed that the council refer the policy matter to scrutiny “as a matter of urgency”, and was seconded by Cllr Williams.
Cllr Hughes said that, since hearing about the RSE, she had “not been able to sleep” but had “wanted to open a frank and open discussion in the spirit of freedom of speech”.
During her address, which included descriptions of sexual acts and genitalia, she was several times asked to redirect her comments and told she was “out of order”.
Members of the public gallery loudly clapped and cheered her on, but shouted down and booed councillors arguing in favour of the policy. They had argued the policy was for the “protection of children”.
Several warnings were given to members of the public who interrupted those speaking in the policy’s favour.
Defending it, Gwynedd councillor Beca Brown, who leads on education, said: “I am totally supportive of the education code set out by Welsh Government.
“My agenda on behalf of Gwynedd is the welfare, safety, health and happiness of the children and young people of this county.
“As cabinet education leader, I want the children of this county to be confident in creating healthy relationships; confident in setting boundaries, confident in saying no and to be happy in their own skin.
“Respecting other people and respecting differences in each other is of paramount importance.”
As teacher Cllr Dewi Jones made his passionate address, saying that “misleading information” had been distributed, there was a a loud response from the public.
Chief executive Dafydd Gibbard warned the hecklers, saying: “Any more interruptions and the gallery will be cleared, so that everything feels safe.”
Shortly after, a man rose from his seat and shouted his disagreement, prompting others to join in.
The meeting was then brought to a sudden stop, and several female members of the public left the room crying.
Police officers were brought in and, after a short recess, the meeting continued.
A vote was held on Councillor Hughes’ proposition that the matter be referred for scrutiny, with 19 in favour, one abstention and 30 against.
The meeting then ended suddenly, with the public the gallery being cleared by the police and council officials.
Members of the council remained inside the chamber until the area was cleared.
It certainly appears that councillors and senedd members all across Wales are happy to blindly support the Welsh Government’s decision to make sex education mandatory from age 3 whilst not doing any research of their own. Any councillor or senedd member who speaks up against this is heckled and discredited by the Politburo running Wales.
As mentioned, Public Child Protection Wales (PCP Wales) are a group of highly skilled experts in their field and raising these concerns has led to a Government and Media backlash with Wales Online printing verbatim what the Welsh Government want printed.
Recently, Kim appeared on the Jeremy Vine show. She seemed to be given very little time to talk considering she was the most qualified to do so on the topic. Myleene Class was on the panel, who suddenly seems an expert on every topic but her true colours didn’t take long to show with her condescending attitude and blank facial expressions but Kim being an expert easily answered any objection Myleene had. When Kim suggesting that Myleene Class “wasn’t hot on this topic” and “Shouldn’t really be discussing it” Kim’s time was done.
