Interesting treatment here by the BBC of two of the candidates in the forthcoming Eastleigh by-election.
On the one hand, we have Tory hopeful Maria Hutchings “provoking a backlash after suggesting her son would need private schooling to be a surgeon.” Meanwhile, comments in a 1998 book by Labour candidate John O’Farrell have surfaced, in which he said he was “disappointed” that Mrs Thatcher had not been murdered by the IRA.
Not quite sure that challenging the merits of state schools quite equates to wishing the savage murder of a British Prime Minister. I also notice the BBC got a quote from Miliband condemning Hutchings but when it comes to HIS candidate wishing to see a British Prime Minister brutally murdered…erm..silence.
Still, how DARE Hutchings attack our wonderful State education system …..
