The Welsh Government Education Minister said "I thought someone was pulling my leg" in response to the Welsh Conservatives' call for a return to a grammar school system here.
Huw Lewis described the policy as "muddled" and "back to the future" on Twitter.
I thought someone was pulling my leg when I was told about Welsh Tory idea of re-introducing grammar schools #backtothefuture
Announcement totally muddled. No clear answers. Selection? Yes/ no? Same school? Yes/ no? GCSEs for all? Yes/ no? #backtothefuture
