THE RIGHT HON Estelle, as we must now learn to call her, has meanwhile sparked unrestrained jubilations around the country, if the crop of press releases which accompanied her announcement on education action zones is anything to go by.
"More than 11,000 pupils together with staff and parents across Kent and Somerset are celebrating today," Kent County Council's press office gushed somewhat improbably about the new virtual EAZ.
"Slough's children are celebrating today," chipped in Slough Borough Council's PR team. Over in east London, the fireworks were more muted: there, we learned, only "Labour councillors in Hackney are celebrating the Government's decision" (courtesy Hackney Labour group).
Frankly, the Diary would be astonished if a single child or local councillor could be seen dancing for joy at the prospect of an EAZ. If you've seen one, tell us. No, send us a photo.
