His Grace Is Not Amused
A south London school has suspended its deputy head teacher. Her crime? Making a speech at the Conservative Party Conference...
His Grace has the story, and he's not happy. At all.
And may I just say how nice it is for His Grace to return from dead, like a phoenix from the flames, once more. He was sorely missed.
UPDATE: Dizzy has an interesting twist on the story. The head teacher was the one who allowed Blair to use her school to launch his 2001 election campaign! Quentin Letts's new book "Letts Rip!" includes an account of the day Bishop allowed her south London school to be used by Tony Blair for the launch of the 2001 general eleciton campaign. It notes that "Mrs Bishop is a fanatical Blairite who considers him the most wonderful Prime Minister in the world".
The piece describes how Blair used Bishop's school remorselessly for political ends. For Birbalsingh now to be accused of political agitation is unbelievably hypocritical.
