Voting in the HE Community

From yesterday's letter from Balls to Michael Gove:

"It is our very clear intention to ensure that all the measures you have rejected are included in a new bill in the first session of the new Parliament."

Putting aside the awful possibility that Balls is still thinking about the leadership, a Labour or Lib/Lab government is still a thing greatly to be feared. It rather looks as if many HEors will be working to make quite sure this doesn't happen.

Since the Lib Dems refuse to rule out jumping in to bed with Labour in the event of a hung parliament they've really ruled themselves out.

This election does seem different in that many people aren't starting out knowing how they're going to vote - so many have lost faith with the current system and some of the self-serving MPs who have been highlighted during the last year. I do wonder how many independents will be voted in (or will even stand) and how that might affect the outcome.

I also have no doubt that we will have to fight this battle again - the bureaucrats at the DCSF are still there. Perhaps the party that says it will get rid of them will be voted in - just think how much money could be saved.

There are some politicians who I hope may simply roll away out of the public picture, or they could be batted (or should that be "baddered?") out of the way.

Well done to everybody - they really underestimated how much Home Educators will fight for their children. I doubt they'll underestimate us again, which maybe makes them more dangerous. But things are changing - lots of people don't trust politicians anymore and the idea that "they" will do what's right for us may also be disappearing, leading to independent thought.

I have very bad and vivid memories of what the Tories did last time they were in power. I don't trust Cameron at all and have concerns about Michael Gove; however from a tactical point of view I think I have no choice at this point but to vote for them.
The LibDems have been consistent in only one thing: amoral inconsistency.
Can't vote BNP! Love the country hate nearly everyone who lives in it.
Or Green - kill a baby hug a tree
so that leaves UKIP -
or Conservative.
Groan.
So here I am ... about to vote Tory.

I suspect that is how quite a lot of HEors are feeling right now, Mum of Six. I have come to that conclusion too.

Hi Mum6kids!
I definitely agree with you here! The conservatives could and almost certainly will be dreadful from other perspectives - there is no good option.

what a wretched state of voting affairs, eh? and i am sure you are right jacinta, that the freedom to home ed as we each see fit is a battle that can only begin again. but we all had a chance to work out arguments and strategies, and that is a good base from which to start.

This book is timely, with its argument for enhancing critical discussion in schools, and in the general upbringing of young people. It is written at a time when Christian fundamentalism dominates the White House and Blair desperately seeks to hand schools over to faith groups. Neo-conservatism is increasingly deployed to provide an ideological cement in a society torn apart by neo-liberal politics and economics.
