Shadow Minister Grieve Backs Grammar Schools

The London Evening Standard is reporting that Dominic Grieve, the shadow Attorney General, has gone over the top into no-mans-land over grammar schools. The key phrase in an otherwise on message interview with his local paper is

“We must also ensure that if further grammar or secondary schools are needed they can be supplied within the county.”

Cameroonie policy is no new grammar schools. This could be sticky for Grieve. The grassroots are not wearing this policy change, although bizarrely ConservativeHome.Com “the unofficial home of the grassroots” says it is officially burying the subject today. Suspect they will be digging it up again tomorrow…

UPDATE : Sticky for Team Cameron it turns out. The Etonians appear to be for turning.

Quote of the Day

Jacob Rees-Mogg on Theresa May

“There comes a point at which the policy and the individual become so intimately connected that it would be very hard to carry on supporting the person who is promoting this policy.”
