Gove still interfering

Post by kenm » Sun Dec 07, 2014 2:18 pm

Today's Observer leads with a report of Nicky Morgan distancing herself from Gove's portrayal of the education establishment as a leftwing "blob".
During Gove's time as education secretary, the term 'blob' was widely used by him and his supporters for an obstructive teaching establishmnet that was resistant to reform.
One senior Tory at the heart of policy making said,'Nicky is having a very difficult time of it,' and that Gove 'can't let go'.
A companion article on an inner page tries to deal with Gove's continued involvement in Morgan's department, but gets little support from her. She makes it clear that she finds confrontation with teachers unhelpful.
"... the innovator has as enemies all those who have done well under the old regime, and only lukewarm allies among those who may do well under the new." Niccolo Macchiavelli, "The Prince", Chapter 6
