It is always a pleasure to follow Mr. Willis, who speaks for the Liberal Democrats on education. He cares and is deeply knowledgeable about the system, unlike Mr. Green, the Tory spokesman. The latter epitomises the problems that the Conservative party is experiencing. He seemed to want to crawl around the minutiae of political debate with a loud hailer. One cannot communicate with the wider public in such a way.
