The London Oratory School is a Catholic faith school, well the lovely Miriam is spanish so that’s OK but even so Nick is in trouble over the decision. In the 2010 election manifesto you see, the Lib Dems promised to put an end to faith-based admissions arrangements.
“We will ensure that all faith schools develop an inclusive admissions policy and end unfair discrimination on grounds of faith when recruiting staff, except for those principally responsible for optional religious instruction,” it said.
Now those nasty Tories and Labourites are accusing Nick of betraying his principles.
Unfair we say, how can he betray his principles when he hasn’t got any.
