Listening to Radio 4 Today's programme this morning Conservative MP Ian Liddell Grainger complained 6 schools due to be built in his Bridgwater constituency by the Labour government's Building Schools for the Future (BSF) have been cancelled. Amazingly he says right at the end "this is not political".
Ian appears to be the Tim Nice but Dim of the Conservative Party. It is simple, vote Conservative and you get shoddy schools. Schools were run down into a terrible state by Mrs. Thatcher's government, and now schools are to be run down again. Labour spent to improve schools, the Conservatives want to stop this. It is political Ian, Vote Labour and you get better schools, Vote Conservative and you don't.
Local South Thanet Conservative MP will be letting down her constituencts. She's part of the Conservative Party committed to stopping the building works needed at Clarendon House Grammar and Chatham House Grammar schools in Ramsgate, and the Northwood Centre in my own ward. Bankers I note will not have increased taxes until next year, a choice of priorities which says it all. I would bring the tax on bankers forward, and increase it. Instead the priority is to cut schools.
If Ian Liddell Granger is sincere he should leave the Conservative Party, you can listen to him wanting to borrow more money, and trying to avoid responsibility for his actions here. His non-political comment comes right at the end.
