Andy Slaughter MP is labelled a hypocrite for having gone to a private school himself but being determined to deny others the same standard of education to others, by Toby Young, leader of the soon to be West London Free School in Hammersmith & Shepherd's Bush, in today's Daily Mail.
Slamming local unions too Mr Young points out that some of them are members of the Communist Party and/or the Socialist Workers - and themselves have educated their own children out of the borough, presumably in search of a better education for their own offspring.
After Mr Young's personal response to this blog on the issue just days ago it's clear that this is the start of a fully fedged fightback that is likely to pull no punches. Given our own Council's enthusiasm for the school as well you can reasonably expect the fireworks over this issue to be a dominant theme in the local news for months to come.
Just a thought though, was the choice of the Daily Mail really a good idea?!
