Tories’ education chaos

12 January, 2018

• LORD Adonis, the former minister who served both Labour and Conservative administrations, did a lot to enhance education.

Since his resignation we have additionally lost a good education minister in Justine Greening.

We were nearly, longer-term, landed with a university administrator sending perverted sexual tweets about women, but social media and mass public opinion finally removed him, after much shyness to act by the government.

His very existence in any educational function of authority let alone university administration showed how flawed is prime minister Theresa May’s judgement, with her overemphasis on faith schools – nearly as poor as the appalling Tony Blair.

Poor Lord Adonis had to serve both but, of course, by choice.
