Kendall and aspirations
1st June 2015
The rhetoric of ‘aspirations’ has been around for many years but a speech by prospective Labour leader, Liz Kendall last week brought it back to centre stage.
Kendall’s full speech also covered several issues with far more potential for improving disadvantaged young people’s lives and hopefully in future she will avoid the unhelpful distraction of ‘inspirational school visits’ and focus on the core issues.
