New Labour and education
According to Blair, education will be at the heart of Labour's election manifesto.
"If you value economic stability you have to vote for it. If you value the New Deal or the minimum wage or tax credits, you have to vote for them.
"If you value more childcare, you have to vote for it. If you value the NHS you have to vote for it. If you value investment in state schools you have to vote for it."
So New Labour simply want to increase the size of government, huh? Government spending as a proportion of GDP is already over 40% and is rising in order to finance the enhancement of 'public services.
Big government simply intrudes on our lives. Government should be small enough as not to commit and force or fraud against a citizens' person or property.
