Primary school children are to be taught about what to do in a terror attack with a book about a cat set loose in a school for mice.
Moggy’s Coming advises youngsters to ‘run, hide, tell, treat’ in the event of an active gunman or knife attacker, in line with national police advice.
Ah, diversity and enrichment, what thou hath wrought!
In conjunction with the book, older students will have ‘teacher-led discussions about a shooter in a school’ and will be given advanced training on how to stop a large wound from bleeding or using a tourniquet.
Good luck with that, with this generation of snowflakes…
The cartoon story is based in the fictional Mulberry School for mice in the town of ‘Goodcitizenham’.
It teaches children that ‘mice know they must be wary of cats’ using a feline to represent an attacker with rodents being the school pupils.
So it’s OK to be ‘wary of Muslims’..? It won’t be perceived as ‘Islamaphobic’, and get you locked up any more?
Well, wait. This is nothing to do with terrorism, right?
Brigadier Tim Hodgetts of the Defence Medical Services, which created the book, told the Times: ‘We are passionate about making sure what we learnt the hard way in the military does get into the civilian community, to wider benefit.
‘If there are indiscriminate attacks in public places, children are part of the public and they will be swept up.
He added: ‘If we look at the allegories, they are not talking about terrorism, they are talking about if you are in a situation where somebody is trying to hurt you.’
Suuuuuure it is….
