Meet The Next Prime Minister
...his name is David, he went to Eton, and his wife hangs out with Tricky. get used to his preening face, and thank god that you won't have to watch him and that other party leader with great hair leaning across the dispatch box at each other for too long; all of a sudden Labour will be in the unusual position of having the party leader who most prizes substance over style.
in other news a report today revealed that in the top 200 state schools - based on GCSE results - 3% of students receive free school meals - the best indicator of affluence/social class in a school environment. nationwide, the proportion of school pupils receiving free school meals is 14%. so in short, the best education the state can provide is still going to students from more affluent backgrounds. i don't pretend to know what can be done to change this, but i do know that it sucks.
