THEY HAVE MET THE ENEMY AND IT IS THEM:

Kinnock lends weight to MPs' schools revolt (Patrick Wintour, January 12, 2006, The Guardian)

The former Labour leader Lord Kinnock today makes a startling attack on Tony Blair's education reforms in what are his most forthright criticisms of Downing Street since the party came to power.

Speaking to the Guardian, he condemned the proposals for schools as "at best a distraction and at worst dangerous" and said the government would have to change the white paper radically.

The safeguards to prevent schools breaking free of local authority control and imposing their own selective admissions criteria were, he said, "paper thin and really not satisfactory at all".


Nor did Clintonism survive Clinton.

Hear it from Kinnock now and Biden later.

Is Lord Kinnock they same guy Biden plagiarized? I thought he was an Irish firebrand, not a Peer of the Realm, or whatever Lord's are called.
