NUT leaders 'colluding to undermine anti-terror policies'
Leaders and activists of Britain's biggest teachers' union are colluding with Islamic extremists to undermine policies aimed at preventing terror attacks.
Private emails leaked to the Telegraph show that Rob Ferguson, a senior National Union of Teachers (NUT) activist in heavily-Muslim Newham, east London, is working with Mend, an extremist front group, and Cage, the notorious organisation which backed the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) killer known as "Jihadi John".
Mr Ferguson is orchestrating a campaign with Mend to discredit Prevent, the Government initiative which aims to spot signs of radicalisation in young people. A member of the NUT's ruling national executive, Alex Kenny, and Ian Hale, the NUT's assistant secretary in Newham, are also involved.
