Earlier this month, we wrote to Kim Leadbeater, the newly-elected MP for Batley and Spen, to ask her what steps she’d taken to help the teacher at Batley Grammar School who is currently in hiding with his family following threats to his life after he showed some of his pupils a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad. She was now replied, so we’re publishing both letters (with her permission). In her reply, the MP says she will support the teacher if he wants to return to work, which we very much welcome.
