I THINK it's really sad, in an effort to speak to the Prime Minister, Helen Donovan is reduced to standing outside a sports centre in the cold.

Branded a security risk and shunned by Labour Party activists, Helen was only given the time of day when she started speaking to the Press.

The Labour Party are obviously so proud of their education manifesto that they seek to hide the only person there who could quote the funding figures accurately in a store cupboard!

One has to ask whether they were hiding their embarrassment?

Well done, Mrs Donovan, in your efforts to highlight the important issue of poor education funding.
