Fairs are a rip-off I went to Oxford on Sunday and they had a Christmas fair with a number of food stall holders all charging very high prices, £5 for a bratwurst in a bread roll from a German stall. Another stall was selling six doughnuts for £5. (Is £5 the new minimum currency for stall holders?) There was a variety of fresh olives being sold by weight but with no prices whatsoever on display.

I have long campaigned for improvements in the support we provide for children with special educational needs & disabilities (SEND), as well as their parents and carers. Many more families than we realise are affected, and that’s why we should all welcome the news that things now seem to be moving forward. Last month the Government published a revised Code of Practice, which sets out the statutory guidance for all those working with, and caring for, children and young people with SEND.
