Surely the point that the Minister for Schools and Learners was making was that

"those parents who have children in partially selective schools before the implementation of the code...will be protected from the removal of the rule."

That is the principle, and it applies to the cross-sibling situation as well as elsewhere. People did not know what the situation would be in 2008 and their perception was that their younger children would have priority, but now that has been removed.

David, the Government have lied on so many occasions in the past it was inevitable that they would lie on this matter too. They renege on so many things of importance to the people because they have no honour or shame and know they will get away with it for the time being.
