The following is a letter we have sent to TEFL Blacklist. We urge all readers to note the contents and help us uncover the hidden nature of CL English Language and work to disrupt this source of revenue to fascists across Europe.
Dear TEFL blacklist,
We at the Marxist TEFL Group are great admirers of your work. Alongside Alex Case and Sandy McManus, you provide an invaluable service to students and teachers alike in avoiding particularly unscrupulous schools.
With this in mind we call on you to include CL English Language in West London on your blacklist as the school is a business partnership between Nick Griffin of the British National Front (a fascist party) and Roberto Fiore, leader of Forza Nuova, a fascist party in Italy. Funds from this organisation help fund the activities of these two nazis and it is therefore not advisable for teachers to teach there nor students to learn there. We cannot comment on the nature of the courses themselves or teaching conditions within the school but, I am sure you will agree, no teacher or student should participate in raising funds for a convicted racist and his evil mentor as they try to spread their racist vile across Europe.
This story first broke in The Guardian last year (although quite strangely it never made its way into TEFL Guardian) and was well-discussed on the TEFL website “Dave’s ESL Café”.
In light of the above and in the absence of information suggesting any change in the school’s ownership, we ask you to join us in exposing this school and asking that teachers and learners boycott it all together.
Marxist TEFL Group.
