What is Jack Straw doing in Pimlico?

  • Comment
letters

I have read with increasing incredulity in your columns accounts of how Jack Straw seems intent on destroying the John Bancroft secondary school in Pimlico in favour of a private-finance property development scheme unwanted by parents, governors, pupils or local residents - wanted only, it seems, by Mr Straw and the Treasury. Is it too much to expect a man of the people to do what they want, or is New Labour ideology to be firmly planted in the maw of the speculative housing developer?
