Well now, hasn't "Call Me Dave" Cameron gotten himself into a real mess following his ever-so-clever idea to abandon English Grammar Schools in order to win plaudits for the left? Faced with a continuing revolt among MPs and grassroots Tories, David Willetts, the education spokesman, has announced that in some specific areas, new grammars could be built after all. Two weeks ago Mr Willetts and Mr Cameron said selection by ability did not work and that no more grammar schools would be built under a Tory government.
Listen, I couldn't be more pleased than to see Cameron swing on this. His betrayal of our Grammar's is symptomatic of his more general betrayal of Conservative values. This man is a Vichy Conservative, and he has been destroying the Party that he leads. As if you needed any further evidence of Cameron's true values, just consider the fact that he has appointed former editor of the "News of the World", Andy Coulson, as their head of communications and planning. The "News of the World" is a scumbag rag. The fit with Cameron is perfect.
