"The Conservative manifesto is as full of holes as the school buildings they left behind in 1997."

Ruth Kelly, Education Secretary "People long for their children to be taught in disciplined schools. But somehow you just know it's never going to happen as long as Mr Blair's around."

Michael Howard, Conservative leader "Labour cannot talk about giving schools greater freedom when at the same time they are giving new powers to Ofsted enabling inspectors to shut schools down."

Phil Willis, Liberal Democrat education spokesman
