Regrets will not solve the problems of many Walthamstow schools affected by the judgment-problems including asbestos, leaky roofs and a lack of space for the curriculum. It was for precisely those reasons that on 12 July I asked the Secretary of State to come to Walthamstow himself. Will he now, finally, in the light of the decision, make good on that and see for himself the issues that BSF was trying to deal with in Waltham Forest? Then, we might finally have schools that are fit for purpose in our borough-unlike the Secretary of State, who it appears is not fit for purpose, according to the judge.
