Interestingly, he does not discriminate between the powerful wealthy schools he patronises and the seedy, pretentious institutions which make up much of the private sector. I wonder why?
Nor should he assume that only Labour MPs, unions and local government are against Blair's fantasies. A very large number of folk in the wider world are up in arms as well.
This is not because of "politics" or "ideology" but because we do not want the system he tries to champion: comfortable in its privilege and and neglecting the needs of most children.
