Devon County Conservatives have been a bit short on facts when talking about education funding cuts. And this week we hear they are launching their own petition against the Government’s cuts. Petitioning their own Conservative friends that is? Meanwhile they are turning a blind eye and keeping quiet about the funding cuts they themselves are […]
