      Saracen's Fez Could you change my vote from Nay to Aye please.

      Considering the importance in the current age of getting a 'C' at GCSE in the core subjects students should get a free chance to have another attempt.

      I'm frankly speechless.

      This bill is an improvement from the status quo, saves millions of pounds for the DoE and gives those who didn't achieve a good pass in their compulsory resit a choice on what they want to do next.

      I find it rather childish that members in this house would rather play party politics than actually listen to the facts and evidence put in front of them - I'll hold my tongue and not accuse people of double standards and ignorance...

      For the record, there was not 'party political' work done against this bill. Those who changed their vote were canvassed by private individuals who happened to care and not by their leaders - at least amongst the government. Don't know about the Liberals and Kippers who changed. :confused:

      But very kind of you to 'hold your tongue'.

      Well there clearly was dirty tactics involved. I have had conversations with these individuals who thought that this bill was an improvement from the status quo and they just change their vote like that? It's a bit surprising if you ask me.

      Maybe they changed their vote because they agreed that this bill is an improvement from the status quo and they listened to facts instead of PMs from little kids telling them to vote against another Tory bill... That's called party politics as far as I'm aware

      Indeed. Apparently a certain Shadow SoS for Education has been asking several members to change their votes.

      They certainly weren't intimidated by their own leaders/cabinet were they? Hm...
