Is choice off the agenda?

During the Liberal Democrat Conference in Bournemouth this year Phil Willis, our "jolly education spokesman", told the BBC:
When you look at schools and the whole area of choice, it's amazing how quickly choice moved off the agenda. It was exposed as hypocritical.
Today's Manchester Evening News reports that:
A top Catholic college is to change its admissions policy after hundreds of parents camped through the night in the hope of putting their children's names down for places.
Perhaps a little more thought is needed on this one?
