School's out 1

September 29, 2006

Last week I was asked to comment on the report that the London School of Economics was considering establishing a "Blair School of Government". I said, by e-mail: "We have had no discussions with the Prime Minister about a Blair School, and the first I heard of it was from The Guardian ."

The Times Higher included three pieces about the wisdom of a Blair School of Government (Opinion, September 22), but did not include my response. This letter corrects that surprising omission.
