School's Out

Katharine Birbalsingh has succeeded in closing down her former employer, a Church of England secondary school.

But of course she has: on last week's Any Questions (what, already? yes, already), she repeated the old Thatcherite hostility to church schools and to Christian collective worship in schools. We have been warned.

However, Their Lordships are in full cry at the moment. It is time to revive the cross-party alliance of Peers that saw off this threat in the Eighties. Perhaps even before it is Baroness Birbalsingh. Yes, by as early as the middle of next week.
