Friday’s high court ruling on whether the temporary exclusion zone around Birmingham’s Anderton Park primary school should be made permanent has been postponed.
The judgement pertains to the ongoing row about the school’s teaching of lessons including information about LGBT relationships.
BirminghamLive reports that the ruling has been postponed as a result of Judge Mr Justice Warby, who was due to deliver his judgement, being unavailable.
The judgement was expected to bring to an end an anxious wait for both the school’s staff & supporters and the protesters who had been demonstrating outside the school for several months until, in the summer, Birmingham City Council won an injunction to stop them.
The row has been rumbling on for the best part of a year. Recent developments have included ex-Labour MP Roger Godsiff - in whose former Hall Green constituency Anderton Park is located - being deselected by the Party and deciding to stand as an Independent candidate, and protest leader Shakeel Afsar recording a video, in support of Mr Godsiff, in which he talks about children being taught how to masturbate and ‘stick their fingers up their arses’.
