Missing the story

Actually my post below missed the real story about Harman's views on parental choice:

1990s - exercises it by sending one kid to grammar school (and the others to faith schools but I'll let her off that as they were comprehensives)

Early 2oo7 - posts letter on her website saying she fully supports comprehensive education

16 May 2007 - expresses scepticism about both parental choice agenda and faith schools

20 May 2007 - Sunday Times - seems to be in favour of parental choice again

I'm confused. But not as confused as Harriet is.

Roy Hattersley talks good sense here as usual.

Luke, your growing obsession with harriet is becoming a worry. This slagging off of other candidates is slightly distasteful - All the politicians in the race are Labour after all.

At least Harriet H has got kids unlike some other robots (mentioning no names)

What an idiotic - and offensive - statement.
