Assuming the reported facts are the full facts (which, one ought to bear in mind is something one cannot just take for granted) then my own personal
view is that RK was flat-out wrong to do this, more so for having recently been a SoS for Education.
But I wouldn't be so quick to rush to judgement on this, the British media have a skill at presenting mere spin and partial truth and expecting us,
the gen public, to take definite stands on something we plainly do not know the whole story about.
I'd just like to know when sending ones' children to a non 100% state funded school became so serious (the implication seems to be it's now a
resigning matter for any Labour MP or Minister?) and whether this new morality is set to be extended to all the MPs we have (particularly on the tory
side of the house where it is so much more apparent)?
Whilst I think it's the wrong thing to do I don't think it bars a person from doing their job, even if it is SoS for Education.
......and given the new privacy legislation I just wonder how much of this Kelly story is relevant but not in the public domain?
Pause for thought, anyone?
