Tristram Hunt’s School Days

Labour are gearing up for their opposition day debate on education after PMQs, another chance for Tristram Hunt to harp on about unqualified teachers. On a completely separate note, meet Tristram’s headmaster at University College School, Giles Slaughter. Guido is happy to be corrected, but as far as he can see Mr Slaughter didn’t have a teaching qualification. That didn’t stop him from being able to impart valuable wisdom to the Independent in 1990, telling them:

“One must be worried about a Labour government. Their policy has softened, but life will be less comfortable for us.”

An important life lesson.

Quote of the Day

Lewis Goodall opines

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
