Stephen Pollard’s spot on again about (my bloody party) Labour’s retreat into class warfare and especially about about Harriet Harperson.
I wonder if anyone will listen to me in rejecting this nonsense and doing what we should have done before, facing up to the crap disgrace that is our state education system. Scrap the national curriculum and break up the local education authorities, then make each school grant-maintained and institute a voucher system, so that schools compete on excellence. As the CPS put it, state education in Britain is akin to three restaurants on the high street, with a set number of places that cannot be expanded. If you want a decent education, then instead of paying fees, you pay a high mortage.
How is that progressive?
