On Tony's Blair's school choice for his son: "For too long (Labour) has not been seen as the champion of standards of quality in education."
Margaret Hodge MP "There are some people in the Labour movement (who) think schools that fail abysmally do so because of thick children. They don't. "
David Blunkett MP "There is no doubt which parents will benefit most from unrestricted choice. It would be intolerable were the Labour party to encourage the middle classes to elbow their way into the most popular schools."
Roy Hattersley MP.
