Another answer on election trail

We think we have spotted another election promise. Let's award another tick for answering one of our eight key questions for the election campaign. Tony Blair's speech to Labour councillors on Saturday did go further than previous good intentions to shift spending from social security to education. He said what he has said before: "As the bills of social failure go down, we can get the extra resources into schools."

But then he described it as a "pledge" and rephrased it: "Less spent on the costs of unemployment. More spent on investment in schools." More means more, and we will hold him to that.
