Just discharged from hospital after another bout of excruciating pain, emergency surgery, and a week's recuperation with all manner of things stuck in me. My annual holiday. And in fact very restful, especially since this year I went without telephone, television or radio. I have had a lot of time to think. I have used it.
Anyway, the great list of "free" schools, the Conservative Party's only policy at last year's General Election, is now out. There are 24 of them. Twenty-four. Including a number of existing commercial schools looking for, and receiving, a bail-out.
