Police tell schoolkids to report classmates who may be forming "extremist views" via a cartoon lion!

Absolutely outrageous. The Register has the story.

Apparently police in Lancashire are showing a video to schoolkids of a cartoon lion that tells kids that terrorists can look like anyone and they should report anyone with dodgy views to the authorities. They illustrate this message with the story of Guy Fawkes on the spurious pretext that his view "began forming" while he was at school!

I despair, I really do.
