Former Telegraph editor Charles Moore joins Andrew Neil and Anita Anand to discuss the day's political developments.

These include the latest Government schools shake-up. Ed Balls is scrapping a £100m a year numeracy and literacy strategy, once trumpeted as the cornerstone of New Labour's education policy. The Schools Secretary is also promoting new 'report cards' for schools to help parents choose where to send their kids, and new 'entitlements' to one-to-one tuition for struggling pupils. The programme discusses this with the Conservative's Nick Gibb.

There's also a look at the enduring influence of Margaret Thatcher, and asking whether David Cameron needs to spell out more clearly what he plans to do in Government.
