Hopping Madness

There is criticism of the MP for Canterbury, Rosie Duffield, for sending her children to grammar schools.

Well, what is she supposed to do? She lives in Kent.

The remaining grammar school areas pretend that their secondary moderns are "comprehensives".

But in reality, they are where children are sent to die academically, intellectually and culturally, in the absence of peers who are high achievers.

Or who simply come from the well-off backgrounds that make it possible to pay for private tuition in preparation for the 11-plus.

So, the way everywhere was when everywhere was a grammar school area, then.

Even with their majority provided by the DUP, of all people, the Conservatives have entirely dropped any proposal to return to all of that.

But in the meantime, Rosie Duffield, and many thousands of others like her, must make the best of things as they are, before everything is well and truly sorted out by Angela Rayner.
