New Labour Hypocrisy

After they are gone, the abiding memory of New Labour will be their sheer hypocrisy. The latest example was atheist Foreign Secretary David Miliband’s decision to send his eldest child to a Church of England school. There is a good state school just 80 yards from his house but clearly not good enough for the son of a New Labour grandee. To get the place his wife started to attend a church attached to the school just a year ago even though they have lived in the area for five years. Hypocrisy is defined as the act of persistently pretending to hold beliefs, virtues and standards that one does not actually hold. Exactly!
