Best news I've had in a long time. by raistlin

Personal opinion based upon many years "in the job":-

Gove has been kicked out of education. The best news I am likely to hear today :D

I know nothing about Ms Morgan, the new incumbent, except to say that she can not possibly do as much damage as Gove did. Nice to see he's been made chief whip where he can't really break things he knows nothing about.

As I said, personal opinion from somebody who has been a lecturer for far too many years :lol:

The fact that Ken Clarke has finally been pensioned off is some cause for relief as well ;)

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?

I totally agree with Gove going being great news. It could only be trumped (for me) by Pickles keeling over...........

The next issue of Private Eye will have a field day - Cameron 'this is not a demotion'. Wonder if any of the press photographers got any pics of May doing cartwheels around the House.

"OK, I think I've hit an insurmountable opportunity!"

Wouldn't mind betting there's nary a teacher in the land that is sorry to see him go. Mind you, he's only the latest in a long line of misfits in education - it seems to feed on Reformists.

An observation about this development: just what is wrong with men of a certain age and upwards that makes it necessary to ditch them in favour of women of fewer, nay, much fewer, years and with no discernible suitable experience in a given field? I believe government should comprise roughly equal numbers of both gender, but surely merit based on experience should play a part? Whatever happened to learning the ropes?
