Deputy skills minister John Griffiths can breathe a sigh of relief today in the knowledge that he is not the only one coming under pressure from higher education lobbyists.
This article in the Guardian shows that schools and colleges in England are seeking to judicially review Ed Balls and the learning and skills council decision to cut their funding by 200 million pounds (this computer has no pound sign, apologies!).
At least John only had to deal with a couple of hundred protestors with placards and a few banners, he can sleep well tonight, safe in the knowledge that he isn't going to be sued, yet...
P.S The sun's gone in, the bar is closed temporarily and i've finished my third book - so i had nothing better to do!
