Kevin Norbury, a dustman whose children attended the school, said: ‘I think he’s tight charging these people, given the amount of money he’s got. He has made millions out of his book about himself. The school has a mixture of children from working-class and middle-class backgrounds whose parents have different incomes and different priorities.’
. . . Another parent added: ‘If the Blairs are holding the party, it’s up to them to make the transport arrangements. I’ve taken a group of pupils, parents and teachers on a day out and hired a minibus, and didn’t charge anyone anything.’
This is not the first time that the Blairs have angered parents at their 11-year-old son’s school.
