a 16 year old boy who was subjected to a two month bullying campaign at school following the september 11th murders in the USA is now sueing his local authority.
Now if a school fails to protect a pupil then they should get their arses kicked (it has to work both ways), however what makes this case unusual is not only the length of time after the bullying was stopped (almost 11 months) but also the reasons given.
This student failed his gcse's and now he has to find some excuse so of course its because he got bullied 8 months before his exams, now that looks more like a little oppertunism with of course the nice chance of a cash payout from a cash starved local authority, can anyone imagine what the school system would be like if every non moslem child who was bullied decided to sue their schools? (maybe they should as then the schools would be forced to do something about the current free reign moslem bullying thay goes on or maybe they should sue the mosques for encouraging it?).

He failed, so what, maybe the local authority should sue him for wasting their teachers time at school.
