Good Lord They Won

The Post has reported that NCC and five other councils have won their judicial review case against the government's decision to close down the BSF scheme.

I'm genuinely but pleasantly surprised by this, I really thought the case was a no hoper. At least we won't be clobbered with a load of legal costs.

Down side? Well it doesn't mean that Nottingham will necessarily have the funding reinstated, the decision only requires that Education Secretary Michael Gove reconsiders his decision. He could make the same decision again but with better reasoning.

Oh yeah, and look forward to rash of articles in the right wing press about 'unelected' judges making 'political' decisions.
