* I was heartened to read Tim Brighouse's review of A Tribute to Caroline Benn: education and democracy with its vision of an inclusive, international comprehensive school. I should like to repeat the last lines for readers who missed it:

"Caroline attributed her disappointment in the progress of the comprehensive ideal to Blair's advisers, 'from whom so many of the present policies seem to have sprung'. Caroline Benn abhorred those who didn't share her commitment to social justice and she had an inbuilt detector of the shallow, the second-rate, and what Americans call crap."
