Gove/May Terror Row – Revealed By Guido – Escalates

Back in April, Guido revealed in the Sun that Gove and May were at war over over who is toughest on terror, as the extremists in schools scandal grew:

‘Supporters of Michael Gove are scathing about Theresa May, suggesting the Home Office is failing to “nip extremism in the bud” and that it only cares about terrorists “once they’re buying the actual fertiliser”.’

A friend of Theresa hit back:

“The Department for Education failed to notice alleged extremists running state schools on their watch. Theresa is very hot on tackling all forms of extremism – which is why she changed the present strategy.”

Today they go further. Speaking to the Times, who a month later have put the row on their frontpage, a Home Office source says:

‘Why is the Department for Education wanting to blame other people for information that they had in 2010? Lord knows what else they have overlooked on the subject of protection of kids in state schools. It scares me.’

Interested spectators familiar with the situation, point out to Guido that No.10 approved Gove bringing in anti-terror chief Peter Clarke to tackle radical Islamists. A clear signal of how seriously this is being taken. And a clear signal of whose side the leadership is on…
