School Fees in Next Labour BackFlip?

The breathtaking backflip by Labour to fund private child care is another sign of the desperation in Labour's ranks. Once described by Duck Mallard as Kentucky Fried Childcare, the 180 must be a real kick in the guts for Mallard.

It marks a significant shift in Labour's policy, which has previously avoided using taxpayers' money to fund private centres. Great to see Labour grudgingly acknowledge the worth of the private education model in the early vulnerable years.

Now what is the chance that private schools will be addressed by Labour in a similar vein. Nil? Nada? Zilch?
