The lying, warmongering twister should be propelled from the Labour party with a hefty boot to his Bush-buggered arse. He's more or less admitted he's a Tory, so why suffer any interference from him with the school system before he's trashed? Let Tories implement Tory policies, if they think they can get elected.
Every school should have a catchment area that determines its intake, completely, period. Your children should mix with the rest of the children in your neighbourhood, no matter how big a snob or moneygrabber you are. Leadership is what's needed, not spineless servility to conniving, self-serving liars trying to break the ladder of opportunity they themselves climbed.
