Just months after the successful 2012 Olympics, Justine Greening – the new Education Secretary – backed the sell-off of six tennis courts, a football pitch and a playground belonging a local school in her Putney constituency, of which she was a governor:

Just months after the sale, the school was handed over to a private Academy Chain ARK.
The chairman of ARK at the time happened to be a multi-millionaire investment banker called Stanley Fink.
Fink also happens to be a Tory peer who has served as co-Treasurer of the Conservative Party.
The sold-off school fields were subsequently bought by a private developer.
This is the woman now in charge of all our children’s schools.
