Assembly must implement will of the people

There are leopards at both ends of the political spectrum here whose apparent change of spots in recent years may amount to no more than expedient camouflage.

As for saying that if parents want an education other than that provided by the state, then they should pay for it, is it not mostly parents who already pay for what the state provides?

Perhaps Mr Robinson thinks he is the state and would happily dictate how our children are educated.

But is the Assembly not supposed to implement the will of the people? Most of whom are parents who want a religious education for their children.
