Family First

Ruth Kelly has put her child before her political career, frankly any politician who did the opposite would disgust Guido – think Aitken trying to get his daughter to commit perjury.

If only more parents had a choice, if parents were say offered a £5,000 tax credit to spend at the school of their choice, competition would drive-up standards. In central London the state education system has collapsed. Parents are forced to either send their children to the local comprehensive to learn text messaging and stabbing or to bankrupt themselves sending their kids to private schools. It is the single greatest concern of middle class parents.

Ruth Kelly’s local schools are amongst the worst in the country, frankly Guido is surprised she risks sending any of her kids to the local school.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
