Trojan Horse Terrorism

I don’t live in Birmingham and i don’t know what’s been going on its schools. But i’m sure that Gove’s heavy-handed approach, calling in a terrorism expert to investigate school governance, has raised the headline stakes and distorted sensitive relationships. This’ll be yet another part of his legacy we’re going to regret at leisure. It’s also  a reminder of tony Blair, and his cheery insistence that faith schools were part of parents’ freedom to choose how their kids should be educated. What a writhing can of worms that’s turned out to be. Thanks, Tony.
