Shadow education secretary Tim Collins wants history to be made compulsory for children up to the age of 16 - they can currently drop the subject at 14.
And which group of phlistines introduced this in the first place? Erm…
Mr Collins admitted that it was under a Conservative government that the compulsion for all children to study history until 16 was removed, but said Labour had “stood by” the change.
Vote Conservative - because only we can keep track of the mess we made.
