Just how bad can the Northern Ireland Conservatives be on announcement timing? Their confused position on academic selection and the 11-plus covered in today’s Belfast Telegraph stands in stark juxtaposition to this article by Melanie Phillips in the Daily Mail. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1028558/If-Cameron-seen-light-grammar-schools-theres-real-hope-Tories.html#
Perhaps Jeff Peel and company have been too close to Sir Ken Bloomfield and the AQE and have forgotten what a true conservative stands for? After all it only took Sinn Fein a few milliseconds to point out their confused education policy position. At least the Shinners are consistently poor on education not weak, confused, directionless followers of former civil servants.
