Yes, that’s right. Theresa May managed to dupe some of you into voting for her in the belief that she’d tax those incredibly expensive private schools properly – but, now that she’s back in Downing Street, she’s not going to do it.

What does that make her?

A liar.

In fact, This Writer reckons it’s time we all admitted that she – and all the other Tories – were lying through their teeth throughout the general election campaign.

The Conservative Manifesto was a blatant work of fiction.

Still, no use crying over spilt school breakfasts, eh?

Instead, let’s just remember the lesson to be learned from the general election:

Conservatives are liars.

Next time you vote, remember that.

Theresa May has been accused of “yet another U-turn” after dumping a pledge to strip private schools of their lucrative tax breaks if they refuse to help their state school neighbours.

The Conservative election manifesto vowed that independent schools would be required to sponsor academies, forge partnerships, or offer extra bursaries to poorer children to retain their charitable status.

However, it now emerges that an advice service has been set up instead, suggesting that the plan has been quietly dropped.

The move was criticised immediately by Angela Rayner, Labour’s education spokeswoman, who said: “Ministers are ripping up the manifesto on which they stood just months ago page by page.

“The Education Secretary has had to give up on providing free breakfasts, abolishing free lunches, opening new grammar schools, sticking to her free schools target, the healthy pupil fund, and now she is refusing to deliver yet another election promise.”
