Peter Hitchens has always wanted a Labour Party that would renationalise the railways, and a Conservative Party that would bring back grammar schools.
He now has one of them. But he is not going to get the other one.
"Only in poor areas, and with a quota of pupils on free school meals" is not grammar schools. That latter may even be imposed on the grammar schools that already existed.
Labour, however, really would renationalise the railways. That could be done easily and for free, and it is no longer controversial within the Labour Party.
