That's absolute crap - everything he says. The first things is that the GTC are incredibly inconsistent and about as much use as Anne Frank's drumkit. They' re a waste of £50 per person per year. The second thing is I can claim a "forces background" with the OTC, as I guess this individual was probably OTC/ACF or somesuch. Or paintballing. I would never claim "martial arts" or anything else earns you respect. Being a fair, consistent, interesting teacher with decent behaviour management earns you respect. The OTC I think helped me in my teaching career - it improved my self-esteem, made me more confident in front of my peers and various other leadership/planning skills that I still use today. Do I tell any classes I could kill someone with a toothpick from the 2nd floor balcony of the Iranian Embassy?...

Edited to add that posting on forums while you're supposed to be teaching is a big no no, as if that wasn't difficult to figure out. Drags down the rest of his profession by being an idiot. I never posted on arrse from a school computer, but would occasionally post on the Times Educational Supplement forum from work if I was on a prep, lunch or after school. Never racist comments, I mean seriously, who calls anyone else "filth" based on the colour of their skin? I mean maybe if they're a Roman Catholic Kiddy Fiddler... *woops*

As much as he may be a total bellend, why do people on here think anyone mentioning a forces background is a walt.

The walt hunting on here is hit and miss to say the least.

He said "...my background with the Forces..." Presumably that's technically different to claiming to having been in the Forces???

He admits to having never served in this article: http://www.newstatesman.com/blogs/the-staggers/2010/04/bnp-afghanistan-war-party
Are you reading the same article as the one you've linked to?

He doesn't say he was never in the forces.
I concede on a technicality:

Asked if he was a real soldier, he admitted he wasn't. "I'm wearing this uniform in solidarity with our boys in Afghanistan," Walker said.
Some more revelations in the Guardian:

Walker, a former soldier, had posted the comments on a forum of Teesside online about the popularity of the BNP in February and March 2007.

Under the pseudonym Corporal Fox, Walker wrote....



Walker has lived in Germany, Cyprus, Egypt and Israel while serving in the armed forces and worked as a teacher in Japan.

He has a bit of a following in the Durham area and it is'nt as if the area is crawling with immigrants, they would probably get eaten by the locals.

And a bit more about his Forces background:

At the rally in Barking, Essex, on April 11, Mr Walker, who was a member of the Royal Armoured Corps from 1985 to 1990, told people he was wearing the uniform to show solidarity with British soldiers in Afghanistan.


“I was in a tank crew. I served five years. I joined when I was 16 and I left when I was 21. I have the right to wear the uniform.

“I was just showing solidarity with the boys and girls who are fighting an illegal war.

So, we're looking to find a tankie who served with him in Germany, Cyprus, Egypt and Israel during the period 1985-1990...

No, we are look for an RAC member(ex or otherwise), who may have been cavalry or not.

I may be opening myself up to ridicule, but (since '56) when did we last have people in Israel?

I know there were a few exercises in Egypt (especially from Cyprus) but I can't recall any the other side of Gaza.

If he is a native of the NE, are we looking for 13/18th Hussars veterans who might know him? Or don't the HCR recruit up there?

And usually conducted by SCH, wives/girlfriends, no mark civvies, cadet instructors and members of the TA.

Anybody capable of stringing a coherent sentence together has a following in Durham. Co Durham...the land that time forgot.

He "might" have served with MFO Sinai.
Joined at 16 left at 21, he had a lot of sunshine tours.
The blokes a bullshitter, IMHO.

Oh Crabby, Crabby, Crabby, do you not know the standard promotion gambit?

Use a school computer to post to a forum extolling the virtues of you dept head or school head. Add in a few quotes from his leaned publications and talk about the privilege of working with such a gifted person.
Leave it a few days then go and put some racist remarks on the same computer but make sure the identity of the perpetrator is hidden. Report racist ramblings to head and wait for him to examine said computer.
I thought this was SOP these days?
