Quote of the Day...

... comes from Longrider's post doling out a rather beautiful kicking to a comment, on the new mobile directory, by some Grauniad fuckwit called Michael Cross—a man who would like to see everyone's "motor vehicle registrations and individual tax returns publicly posted", but not his daughter's mobile number.

I shall try to post a little more frequently going forward. But, please, be warned that the reasons for eschewing this format haven't really gone away. My…

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
