I like the way she is quite positive about child minders or am I missing a hidden agenda?

Give me strength!
Why does Truss refer to parents as employing childminders? Her whole speech has annoyed me

I actually truly and honestly believe that this is the most 'dangerous' speech she has made so far about cms and agencies and by that she has also shot herself in the foot...what is annoying about it is her belief we believe what she is saying while in fact it is insulting.

I will leave it at that as this is an open forum.... but I hope cms wake up to the fact that we really need to rise to her nonsense...enough is enough!
and far from appealing to the DfE to listen to us and, as it is widely reported, saying they are not...oh yes they are and this is the result!

I would have given anything to be there yesterday and put a few questions to her and her agencies present in the room!
Anyway I know someone who was there so I am off to find out more!
