    Asked how he passes the time outside the school, Mr Burke conceded that the days are long. “It is a long day. I’m here to work,” he said, before being picked up by his waiting father.
    Comedy gold there, the last line.

    Anyway, he's outside the school again today Indo are covering it but again RTÉ are not last mention on BBC was five days back. I'm UK based, are other Irish media still covering this or is standing there in the cold becoming less appealing ? File with the DPP too re his most recent activity.

    I think like any outrage-bait there needs to be a constant evolution of the story in order to keep it popping up in headlines. A sad man waiting outside the gates of a school for days on end isn't that. Presumably the family are already planning the next thing to get back in the headlines.

    Hope the DPP slow pedal the file so, let him stand there in whatever remains of winter racking up debt while the online mob move onto something new to be outraged over.

    Still saying he's turning up to work, no relationship with the reality of his situation at all.

    He's a loathsome creature. I wonder how long before someone submits a complaint to the Teaching Council. There’s a lot he could have to answer to at a fitness to practice inquiry. It’s unlikely that he’s ever going to teach again, unless it’s in the family’s school, but there are good grounds to have him removed from the register, just in case some other hiring eejit doesn’t do a Google search on the applications.

    Teachers should:
    1.1 be caring, fair and committed to the best interests of the pupils/students entrusted to their care, and seek to motivate, inspire and celebrate effort and success
    1.2 acknowledge and respect the uniqueness, individuality and specific needs of pupils/ students and promote their holistic development
    1.3 be committed to equality and inclusion and to respecting and accommodating diversity including those differences arising from gender, civil status, family status, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, race, ethnicity, membership of the Traveller community and socio-economic status, and any further grounds as may be referenced in equality legislation in the future
    1.4 seek to develop positive relationships with pupils/students, colleagues, parents, school management and others in the school community, that are characterised by professional integrity and judgement
    1.5 work to establish and maintain a culture of mutual trust and respect in their schools.

    Teachers should:
    2.5 avoid conflict between their professional work and private interests which could reasonably be deemed to impact negatively on pupils/students.

    Teachers should:
    3.1 uphold the reputation and standing of the profession
    3.3 work within the framework of relevant legislation and regulations
    3.4 comply with agreed national and school policies, procedures and guidelines which aim to promote pupil/student education and welfare and child protection
    3.6 communicate effectively with pupils/students, colleagues, parents, school management and others in the school community in a manner that is professional, collaborative and supportive, and based on trust and respect

    Teachers should:
    4.2 apply their knowledge and experience in facilitating pupils’/students’ holistic development

    People who believe they are doing God's work are very dangerous. Morals go out the window, other people don't matter, it's all about whatever fairytale nonsense they have decided is the will of God. Religion is fine as long people don't take it too seriously.

    Funny, too, how it's always the Old Testament smitey-slaying God, and not the NT love thy neighbour type...

    So he's still outside the school with the media circus having moved on, is that about right ? Most recent Google of him was The Times saying US Evangelicals back him but won't pay his fines & the Indo saying he had effectively created his own prison with this crusade & was now just a dude outside a school somewhere, alone. No actual coverage though, no interviews, no quotes, no attention oxygen as far as I can tell.

    Judge due to look at the fine amount on Friday I think so probably a bit of coverage there but brief & not good news for him you'd imagine.

    I think so.

    I see the Westboro Baptist Church (a fairly hateful extreme Catholic organisation in the US first brought to prominent attention this side of the pond by Louis Theroux) have said while they agree with his stance on transgenderism, they won't pay his fines as he effectively needs to respect the High Court decision to bar him from the school grounds. (Sunday Times this week, though behind a paywall)

    When the WBC are disagreeing with you, you know you're onto a fairly spectacular loser.

    So this hearing originally set for yesterday was put back but he turned up at the court anyway and proceeded to talk over a judge until the judge had to temporarily leave his own court, he was removed by Guards but stood looking through the window in the door thereafter as his sister took up the baton until a female Guard was brought to remove her too.

    Whole family dragged shouting from the court today when things ( to their surprise, remarkably ) didn't go his way.

    https://www.rte.ie/news/courts/2023/...1-enoch-burke/

    Telling a judge he's " bowing at the altar of transgenderism " as Guards drag you away, is a real bucket list moment surely. I'm sure they'll all laugh about that one before hitting the town for a well earned coke & hooker sesh.

    God bless them.

    I'm sure he'll fight it all the way to the top, and he'll probably find a way to wangle his way out of it even when that goes against him, but still good to see.

    Cleverest part of that IMO is the judge making it ok for him to stand outside the school, which is where he finished out the term into summer breakup as I understand it. No mounting fines for that, no crusade, no story, no way back & surely no reason to turn up there when the school recommences lessons.

    He's still there and the school now being put through making it an offence for him to stand outside as he is causing whatever bit of chaos he can from the road, they claim they had to lock doors to keep him from entering.
