Gove versus May

It was much more than a cabinet spat

It started off simply and it's only just begun, but the battle of words between Home Secretary Theresa May and Education Minister Michael Gove runs deep. This story has been taken down from the front pages of national newspapers and ironically fighting between rival Islamic factions in the Middle East played a big part in its removal. For anyone who has followed the Islamification of the UK this event has been illuminating. Initially it looked to be all about schools, but there was more. They public have felt abandoned as they watched the root causes of the dispute happen and have had to put up with the consequences in cities all across the UK. It has been convenient for large sections of the media to paint Gove as a neocon. May tripped up very early on this we can see with her remark implying that the problem with schools in Birmingham began in 2010. No it did not. If May and her counter-terrorism 'experts' really think this is so then this explains a lot. So where is the origin of this?

We could go back to the Ray Honeyford case of the mid-1980s. This was in Bradford but other cities could equally well have behaved the same way. Bradford also led the way with the problems following the publication of The Satanic Verses.
