The Independent reports the Conservative Party has admitted it may have made a mistake in its election manifesto after budgeting less than 7p per child in its school breakfasts pledge. In an embarrassing U-turn, the Conservatives now say the costs of providing breakfasts “will vary, depending on how many pupils at any given school take up this offer”.
The thing is the Conservative Party Manifesto is full of waffle and light on detailed policy, costings and risk analysis. Read it for yourself and make up your own mind.
It’s worrying that the Conservative Party Manifesto has not been properly checked before publication. The devil’s in the detail. If Theresa May gets the cost of school breakfasts wrong, surely it’s a big learning curve for Brexit negotiations?
