Politics latest news: VAT raid on private schools will not cause pupil exodus, insists Starmer
So why are you doing it then?

Or only if all attend the state podding hutches can the New Briton be created. The urge isn’t, not really, anything to do with money, it’s abolition. So if people won;t stop because money then why bother?
