Good to see a positive news story about young people in Thurrock making a difference. Finally the council doing something positive with young people in mind and young people making a difference with things like bullying in schools. Well done those involved in this project.
It almost makes you want to give up. They use one of the worst atrocities in the history of mankind to propogandize children. Are there no depths they will not plumb.
