Careful consideration or U-turn?

When the government announced that the Building Schools for the Future programme was being stopped in Stockton and other towns there was an outcry. People said that all the funding was being taken away, the investment so far was wasted and the new government was depriving the borough of the new schools that had been planned. Now the first stage of the reconsideration has been completed and Stockton's two academies are going ahead. So now some of the press comment is along the lines of U-turns. I get the distinct impression that some journalists can't bear the government to be right.
Now I hope that we'll see the government finding better ways of using the limited funds available to have as many of the other school projects we need funded.
