Comment 2 by Metamag :

You reap what you elect.

We didn't elect them. They persuaded the Liberal Democrats to enter a coalition, thereby securing the necessary majority in parliament. The Lib Dems should be hopping mad about this. It might be a good idea to concentrate letters on them rather than on Tories, who are probably a lost cause.

The only redeeming feature I can see here is that, unless I am mistaken, the beneficiary is the Church of England. Faith schools of any kind are bad news, but Anglican ones are the lesser of evils. I'd like to see the end of all government support for faith schools. But if a genie offered me an Anglican monopoly as the only way to abolish all Islamic and Roman Catholic Schools I'd take it.
