What assurances have you been given Dave that there will be no loss of curriculum if the colleges merge, which is I may add a requirement prior to the sale of any education facility, you should know this ! Andrew Stunell is trying to ensure there is no loss of curriculum or facilities so we could say that he is campaigning against the loss of curriculum and education facilities
My knowledge is a bit out of date (it's a year or two since I worked in colleges, and things change very quickly). But it is true that colleges proposing to carry out major land or building projects need government consent to do so - in practice, I should imagine this would be dealt with by the YPLA, as an agency of government. And you are probably correct to point out that this consent would not be forthcoming if there was any significant loss of curriculum provision.
In which case, the college will not be permitted to drop any curriculum areas, so our MP does not need to do any campaigning against it.
What he IS campaigning against is a plan which will provide greatly improved educational facilities for our children and grandchildren for the next twenty or thirty years or more. It's an extraordinary way for an MP to behave. No doubt he's doing it because he believes he is responding to majority opinion, but as we all know very well, no-one yet knows what the majority opinion is. I for one will not be voting for him again.
