Prudence has won out

I'm delighted to see that Jim Knight (left) has reversed the very silly plan to tax schools 5% of their surpluses. It was always a daft and unfair idea, though NASUWT, who have long supported the proposal are bizarrely blaming 'vested interests' for the change of heart. But, as I predicted here and urged here, ministers have bowed to the inevitable. Let's hope the Treasury have learned their lesson on this occasion.

Years in government and hope still triumphs over experience!
