Labour MP Rupa Huq on history lessons in schools

History lessons in English schools make no mention of the Blair-Brown administrations, or the post-war Labour government which brought in the welfare state and NHS, says Rupa Huq.

In a personal film for the Daily Politics series, the Labour MP claimed it was "dangerous to deny that these things ever happened" and she argued there was a pro-Conservative bias to what was being taught with a risk of "brainwashing our kids".
