Ruth Kelly bored the commons into submission yesterday, Willets failed to hit her with any telling blows. Willetts for all his intellectual capability is just not cut out for frontline political warfare. It’s unfortunate that he is fronting the Tory approach to the education reforms. This needs someone more machiavellian and adept at intrigue, with a Tebbit like ability to project themselves in the House and on television. Willet’s “could do better” as it always said on Guido’s school reports.
