@James – thanks for the feedback. Yeah, I'm bitterly aware that I'm not a journalist (eg PoliticalScrapbook cover many of the same issues in a much punchier way: http://politicalscrapbook.net/2011/07/michael-gove-murdoch-links/ – albeit 3 hours later). But I do think that, as Jim says, this post connects a lot of dots, and casts a fair bit of question on the provenance of coalition education policy. Anyway, I'm sorry to be unable to read your tweets, I would really like to learn to tidy up my writing style a bit.
