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:

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.”

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…
