BNP teachers allowed
Being a member of the BNP or other Fascist organisations was not incompatible with being a teacher, the AGM decided. The meeting heard Charlotte Ahmed from Glasgow argue that a Fascist could not teach in the way Scottish society required. But those who argued the union itself would become "Nazified" if it supported an outright ban won the day after Ms Ahmed commented, in her summing up, that it was "astounding" how many white men defended the freedom of speech of Fascists in the debate. Robert Peaker from Aberdeen, said: "You don't destroy nasty ideas by banning them; it's illiberal."
