Cast your minds back a couple of weeks, and there was a bout of speculation that Labour, under pressure from the NAS/UWT teaching union, is considering a possible ban on British National Party members working as teachers in schools. We asked LDV readers the question: Do you think there should be a change to teachers’ contracts to prevent BNP members from teaching?

Here’s what yout told us:

  • 27% (92 votes) – Yes
  • 69% (235) – No

  • 4% (12) – Other
