Sorry, your £307 million has gone elsewhere
If Blair was honest, then his response to this article titled "Dear Mr Blair we need £300 million" would be "I'm afraid we have spent all your money on helping Bush in his pet project to invade Iraq." Just one look at the hole in the ceiling of Cardinal Wiseman RC School in Kingstanding should shame Prime Minister Tony Blair into rubber stamping the money - NOW. And that is one of the better schools on a priority list of 36! In others children are left to shiver as wind whistles through rotting window frames, cladding crumbles from the outside shell and pipes rattle with rust. But that is not good enough in the year 2004 and from a Government which proudly boasted that its priority would be "Education, education, education".
