Bangers and mashed

Unison have been quick to exploit how £280m of additional Government funding can help them grow. Ruth Kelly, Education Secretary, has announced there can be "no excuses" for serving poor quality school meals at a Unison organised conference. Helpfully, Christian McAnea, Unison's head of education services, points out that school meals can only be improved by "Increasing the hours they [staff] work and employing more people." Presumably, newly qualified staff need new pay bands too.

Why it will take the new School Food Trust £60m to ban fast food and discover that private sector catering contracts are watertight is beyond me.
