25 to 0 in 8 days

A Friday question: would it be better to describe the government’s attitude to religious schools as craven or pusillanimous?

It’s a toughie. They both have a good ring to them, and semantically they’re pretty close. I think craven conveys contemptibility better, but then pusillanimous probably has more connotations of being self-serving.

Either way, pah.

This area of policy isn’t the government’s most serious failure, but it is the one that pisses me off the most. Especially as it’s my bloody party! Well done Alan Johnson, you’ve managed to make Kenneth Baker look good.
