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.
