Michael Gove 'slams clock-watching civil servants who are thwarting plans for domestic reform by knocking off as soon as they have done their hours

Not Brexit sucking the life out of Whitehall then?

What Gove needs to understand is that even Leave voters who aren't well-heeled nutters won't open their wallets to pay Brexit let alone civil servants. Which is what unpaid overtime is.

Looks like it's Mikey stirring the pot and leaking his own plot. He's crap at this. If he were a Game of Thrones character, he'd be Shittlefinger.
Mmmm.... explain who this character is, Andy?
Me neither, but I'm sure Mr (Mrs?) Shittlefinger is stung by the comparison.

Didn't know where else to put this, but the bloke (Rober Peal) in question is an old Gove/Toby Young crony.

Political Scrapbook may have had a tip-off for this, but I couldn't possibly comment. (It was spotted in the TES by an online pal of mine).

Right wingers trying to drag education back decades have suffered an embarrassing set back today.


The Tories have been on a crusade to get rid of modern teaching methods and return to a ‘knowledge-based curriculum’ since 2010.

It was an obsession of Michael Gove’s and the flame of ‘good old fashioned teaching’ is now being carried by Schools Minister Nick Gibb.

The “neo-traditionalists” thought they’d made a major breakthrough last July when a private university launched the first knowledge-based teacher training course.

I hope that no government business is discussed on WhatsApp, like the personal email accounts when he was at Education none of this info is available to FOI requests.

I imagine the Information Commissioner's Office might have a view on this.
