Defeat for the people, victory for the state
I'm not at all surprised to learn that the self-governing primary school in Dunblane has been taken back into political control. The "philosophical convictions" of the parents count for nothing. Over on The Scotsman, the teaching union boss is quoted as saying:
Parents may or may not have been content, but the fact is it (the school) was operating in a limbo.
All must be equal. All must have prizes. All must be ruled by big brother.
