There is more to #Brexit than meets the eye, so the critics keep telling us. But let's remember that Brexit was more than a need to end the tyranny of the European Union and the discriminatory immigration policies they allowed; it was a movement for change. And that is why #Grammar Schools are so crucial in #Britain's journey to succeed after we are free from Brussels' shackles.

Crisis in education

The education sector is in crisis.

Brexit was not a protest against globalisation, but the regionalisation of the EU. We still need to compete in a global market. But under New Labour, the ban on grammar schools has deprived children from the poorest backgrounds with the opportunity to compete with their counterparts at top schools like Eton and Harrow. They were shoved into the state sector for New Labour's ideological purposes where they had a poor education in a failing comprehensive.

Post-Brexit

The triggering of Article 50 is dawning upon us. It is all well and true untangling the web of legislation the EU has imposed on us for years, but those of us who campaigned for Brexit know Britain can stand on its own two feet. Yet how can future generations fulfill this mission without the necessary skills to do so? This lifting on selective schools is more than just an attempt to reverse New Labour's damage to this country; it is about preparing Britain for a post-Brexit environment.
