The S Word

"Tony Blair talked about "Education, Education, Education". But Theresa May wants "Segregation, Segregation, Segregation"."

Barnstorming stuff from Angela Rayner, who is on her way to the very top.

The use of the S word locates this struggle within that of the Civil Rights movement from Rosa Parks onwards.

It casts Theresa May as Bull Connor.

This is wholly fitting for Rayner, who is a stalwart supporter of the Durham Teaching Assistants.

We may only hope that Simon Henig will one day experience the contrition that did eventually come to George Wallace.


  1. Rallies in 100 towns and cities on Saturday, all organised between the end of Angela's speech and now. 200 eventually? 300? Why not? This is the best thing that could possibly have happened to the Labour Party.

  2. Bull Connor? George Wallace? Theresa May can look after herself, but do you really think Simon Henig, a man you know, deserves to be compared to the pre-shooting George Wallace? Is this what we can expect from you between now and the local elections?
