. Yes JO'F the author is a screaming leftie and obviously hates Indie parents, ...
I disagree with your quote though.He says the very opposite in the foreward of the copy I have. Yes he is a leftie but says he understands the difficult decisions parents make and has friends who have chosen indep schooling.
I also think that whilst Ffion is the most hideous of characters
, some of the others are painted with some sympathy.
I think it is a book about parental fear/ worry which we all suffer from at times regardless of school sector.
