I confess I have a bit of a fascination with the Enoch Burke saga.
The story started when he refused to recognise a “transgender” child and use that appalling construct of “they/their”. Now I am fully behind him on this one. I would point out that this child is in school and therefore presumably a minor. What an adult chooses to do is their own business but a minor is a different kettle of worms. I blame the parents.
Anyways, Burke was suspended for his views.
That’s when the fun really started.
Burke insisted on turning up at the school in spite of his suspension.
The school got an injunction barring him from the premises.
He ignored the injunction and still presented himself daily at the school.
He was arrested for breaching the injunction and sent to prison.
He was released from prison at Christmas. He promptly presented himself at the school again in spite of the injunction which was still in force.
In accordance with the school’s wishes he was not returned to prison. Instead the court started the process of removing his possessions.
Burke brought a court case against the school looking for an injunction to stop the school from discussing his case.
He won, but he lost. The court decided he was entitled to an injunction, but they weren’t going to grant it as Burke obviously didn’t respect injunctions.
Burke promptly presented himself for work at the school again.
The school had its meeting and decided to sack him.
I am now waiting for the next move. Is Burke going to quietly walk off into the sunset? I very much doubt it. He’s an idiot who comes from an obviously deranged family. I have a feeling that all his actions to date are at the behest of his Mammy who is the queen of the
asylum cult family. She is happy for her idiot son to go to prison as she isn’t the one who is locked up. She’s a religious nutjob of the highest order and is just out to create trouble at any opportunity. The clue is in the names she gave her kids – Ammi, Jemima, Enoch, Keren, Elijah, Simeon, Kezia, Josiah, Isaac and Esther. Good solid Irish traditional names?
So what’s next?
My guess is a court case against the school for unfair dismissal?
