This is the David Laws who claimed £40,000 from the tax payer and who was found guilty and suspended from the House of Commons for 7 days by MPs in a vote on 16 May 2011.
This is also the same David Laws who was educated at two fee-paying independent schools. The first was Woburn Hill School in the town of Weybridge, Surrey. That was from 1974 to 1979 and this was followed by a time spent at St George’s College, Weybridge, from 1979 to 1984. He is also another one of the ‘Cambridge Men’.
David Laws has accused teachers of hindering social mobility by failing to encourage children to “reach for the stars“. Interesting that he doesn’t appear to recognise that the parents of these children might have an influence on them and their aspirations.
He seems to have a very strange view of family life and where children spend the majority of their time. Does he have no influence over his own children? Does he have any? You have to wonder where he got this crap from as he didn’t have a job until a couple of months ago and now claims to know what goes on in every classroom in the country.
Still, as we already know, he’s one to be believed. Wonder who he lets rooms out to these days? Does he charge them rent?
