Tory quits post over grammars row

Graham Brady has resigned from David Cameron's front bench team after being 'severely reprimanded' for speaking out in the Conservative row over grammar schools.

He says:
I'm jumping because I need to be free to speak my mind, because I need to be free to speak up for the interests of my constituents.

Cameron has shot himself in both feet over this one. By trying to appear strong, he's atually showing his weakness.

No. Cameron is going with the flow. He wants City Academy parents to vote Tory, not to waste time pedalling nostalgia for Grammar Schools in areas where none exist.

City Academies are the new wave of Grammar Schools, right down to the selective intakes, the dodgy sponsors and the massive state funding.
