David Willetts is supposedly the genius in the Tory ranks. Called two brain by the Tories because of his enormous intellect, he made an announcement today which showed that he is more likely to be known as "thick as two short planks" in future.
In a blatantly populist statement he announced that under the Tories "Snowballs and conkers would not be banned in school". What a lovely thing to announce, no doubt rejoicing can be heard in the streets of Tunbridge Wells as I type. The problem is, will David Willetts and his party colleagues announce a change in the law that will mean schools will no longer be sued ?
No, thought not. It's more Tory talk, but no action.
