Headteachers should have the power to fire BNP teachers, David Cameron said last week. The Conservative party leader said that being a member of the BNP and a teacher was "completely incompatible". Earlier this month, the Government ruled out a ban on teachers becoming members of the party. Speaking at the Harris Academy in Peckham, south-east London, Mr Cameron said: "Any good headteacher would not have a member of the BNP within a hundred miles of a school. They should be able to fire someone for that reason."
