From the EDP:

Bob Blizzard, former Waveney MP and Labour’s prospective Parliamentary candidate for the constituency, said that the free school was a “scandalous waste of public money”.

After seeing a public consultation report prepared by Cambridge Education on the free school bid, Mr Blizzard criticised the department for ignoring the views of the petition as well as the elected representatives, Waveney MP Peter Aldous and Mark Bee, county councillor for Beccles, who both spoke out against it.

Mr Blizzard said: “In 20 years of public life I have never seen millions spent on such a fragile and feeble project.”

He added: “They had only 21 parents express an interest, but there was a petition with thousands of names presented by the head of Sir John Leman that did not figure at all.”
