Boris pulls plug on educational trips for state school kids

Well if they want to be able to do educational visits they should've gone private! That, I assume, is the reasoning behind our esteemed Mayor's ending of his predecessor's scheme to encourage state school children to engage with the natural world. Neither ZSL London Zoo nor the Wetlands Centre are best pleased, even less so the hundreds of thousands of school children who will miss out from now on.

Still, on the plus side, this is the second vaguely anti-Boris article in the London Evening Standard in as many years, so at least that's a turn-up for the books.
