Gove's follies

Michael Gove at Policy Exchange delivering his keynote speech 'The Importance of Teaching'I’m feeling quite delighted tonight for my brother and other teachers, following the news that Michael Gove has been humiliatingly demoted. He won’t even be a full voting member of cabinet any more, just an attendee on the sidelines. And he takes a £36,000 pay cut. So his pay cut is half as much again (+) as the national average wage!

His public fight with Mrs May and the trouble-making of his ex-aide Mr Cummings must have been the final nails in his coffin.

Paradoxically, given the ire Michael Gove has provoked, I hear from a friend, who has worked with him, that he is apparently the nicest, most politest man you could possibly meet.
