Liam Byrne is talking a lot of sense in today's Sunday Times (hot off the press!) “Sometimes we made arguments about choice that elevated the process over the outcome” he said. “We made a fetish of choice when actually what we should have been focusing on is how we give people more control over public services they pay their taxes for.”
I never signed up to the whole 'choice' agenda. People want their local school to be good and their local hospital to be good. Period.
