A secondary teacher in Ashford, Kent has been given a formal reprimand after using a racist poem to explain voting patterns in the U.K.
40 year old social studies teacher Lynus Broadbent was instructing a 3rd year class on electoral trends and was having difficulty getting the message through to some of his students.
Explained an embarrassed Broadbent, " I was struggling to get my point over so I thought I'd use a poem I've known for some years now. I was stupid and wish to apologise for any offence caused".
For the record, the offending rhyme goes like this :
There was a young Scotsman called Rory
Who lived just outside Tobermory
He stated with glee
I love S.N.P.
Us Jocks never vote for a Tory
