Education and libraries are more important
This is just an observation
Education is certainly and clearly more important than Religion, Sport, Media investment, the corporate structure of local government, the institutions of banking,finance and insurance, the cost of political parties, the Monarchy and the extent of our civil service.
We should sell assets and be clearer about our priorities if we find ourselves neglecting education and, as part of our educational service, our public library service.
These are the kind of decisions that one would really mean by hard
Instead of the Olympics we should have spent the money on the library service. ... it would have been better.
We have become one of the most ignorant. gauche, brutal, unkind and uncultured countries on the planet - with no apparent aspiration or ambition to improve. We should not have let that happen

Spot on! I couldn't agree more.
