Understanding the New Prevent Strategy

Henceforth under the terms of our new guidelines
Your big brother will remain your Big Brother
But your little brother will now be your Big Brother
Your big sister will be your Big Brother
Your little sister will also be your Big Brother
Your mum and dad will both be your Big Brother
Your auntie and uncle will also be your Big Brother
Your newphew and niece will be your Big Brother
All of your cousins will be your Big Brother
Any living grand or great grandparents will also be your
Big Brother.
You will remain Big Brother to your little brother
But you will become Big Brother to your big brother
You will be Big Brother to your little sister and your big sister
You will be Big Brother to your children and their children
You will be Big Brother to your newphew and niece
You will be Big Brother to your auntie and uncle
You will also be Big Brother to all of your cousins
No matter how many times they are removed
You will be Big Brother to your mum and dad
And you will be Big Brother to any living grand or great grandparents
These are the implications of our New Prevent Strategy in part only
A fuller brief wil be forthcoming
I hope everything is clear.
