When pouring masses amounts of money into something makes little to no difference, oh go on then - just keep on doing it, keep throwing away that cash. No it's not about schools, truancy sweeps, children's databases or the NHS. This time it's Sure Start.
From a Spectator article 15th April:
"Brown...has commissioned an academic review of Sure Start, and its interim report six months ago did indeed show little to no impact from the £3.1 billion spent so far. But rather than end the experiment, Brown wants to roll out Sure Start across England by 2010 - pursuing the dream that the state can act in loco parentis."
