Two boys in the UK killed a child. They had new identities with taxpayers money spent on them and should have never been allowed to walk free in many peoples eyes. I hope the US justice system never let this killer walk. http://m.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/jan/25/us-boy-accused-murder-appeals?cat=world&type=article

This was Labour’s policy while they were still trying to be fiscally responsible. It is ironic that this should break today, Alan Johnson, a decent man, was being frank and sensible with the Education Select Committee in 2007. By the time of the election and Ed Miliband’s manifesto, they were going for broke and were happy to bribe shamelessly. So what’s half a billion between friends when you can slip some extra pocket money to 65% of students staying at school or in further education. Catch a new voter early, when they are idealistic and easily influenced and you may hang on to them for a few elections. Of course the price paid is that the sensible amount of money required to help keep the children from the most disadvantaged families in education wasn’t there. Given a choice between targeted spendng that genuinely encourages social mobility and encouraging a dependency culture by bribing potential Labour voters, Labour chose the latter. Not that we Lib Dems can be holier than though on this, wasn’t our fees policy just another unaffordable and much more expensive bribe?
