In an article for the Daily Mail, the Education Secretary Michael Gove has condemned what he called ‘left-wing’ academics for portraying the deaths of 16 million people during the First World War as not being very nice.

Mr Gove also slammed modern historians for attempting to “whitewash” the fun aspects of standing up to your waist in human excrement and mud and having your limbs blown off while awaiting the command to go over the top to your certain death.

In a related development, the Education Secretary also signalled his intention to ensure history text books covering the Second World War in British schools highlight the more amusing and enjoyable aspects of life in a Nazi concentration camp with particular stress on teaching the funnier side of the events leading up to the deaths of 6 million Jews in the Holocaust.
