If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps fund the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
I am a big fan of Katharine Birbalsingh. She lost her job at an academy in South London for pointing out that many schools were failing the most vulnerable due to a lack of discipline and standards.
You would have thought she would be promoted not fired for that analysis but schools are mainly run by Lefties so she had to go.
However she did not hang around feeling sorry for herself and opened up another Academy which has been a huge success as she has very tough discipline giving pupils the chance to achieve rather than being derailed by the trouble-makers.
Ms Birbalsingh has just been made the new chair of the Social Mobility Commission and immediately made two good points.
The first is that the government should start a campaign telling parents not to give smartphones to toddlers.
She said it should be part of the national consciousness that eating five pieces of fruit or drinking eight glasses of water is.

Her second point was about racism. She said public discussion about white privilege was unhelpful to ethnic minority children.
She told MPs at her pre-appointment hearing; ‘’If you go on and on about the fact the establishment is against them a child is likely to give up.
‘’If it is the case that you are telling them all the time you can’t get these jobs because you are black, you can’t do this because you are brown, it’s very hard for a child to see above that.
‘’We are immersed in a culture which has hanged quite radically in the last few years in a way that is not necessarily helpful to ethnic minority children although we think it is’’
Thank God Ms Birbalsingh – who got the job thanks to patronage of Liz Truss - has got the government’s ear. Uniquely she talks sense.
