Stinks, stinks, stinks!

Former Education Secretary Ruth Kelly has enrolled one of her children at an elite £15,000-a-year private prep school. It is understood the child has learning difficulties.

Are these the same "learning difficulties" that forced Labour MP Karen Buck to withdraw her son from a city academy or Labour MP Diane Abbot to send her son to a private school?

Why did Ruth Kelly oppose Conservative plans for a "pupil passport" that could have subsidised other children with "learning difficulties" to go private too!?!

Tony Blair's now infamous "Education, Education, education" priority in 1997 now "stinks, stink, stinks"!

Her child's new school has "60 pupils aged 7 to 13 and offers extensive grounds, a heated swimming pool, tennis courts, golf and horse-riding" just like your typical "bog standard Comprehensive"!

Wouldn't you also like to know how many other Labour Ministers educate their children privately? Not only is it hypocritical, but worst, Ruth Kelly failed other parents of children with special needs when she was in a situation to help them the most.

Ellee, I'd rather know how many Labour MPs attended Grammar School.
