The Education Secretary Michael Gove is expected to resign after the Prime Minister David Cameron threatened to give him his strong backing over his handling of the so-called ‘Trojan Horse‘ plot in schools.
The PM made the threats to the Education Secretary by offering him his ‘full support’ while speaking at a garden party hosted by Policy Exchange, the think-tank co-founded by Gove.
The harsh words from Cameron come not long after Dominic Cummings – a former senior aide to Michael Gove – heaped fulsome praise on number 10 by describing Cameron as bumbling, the No 10 chief of staff, Ed Llewellyn, as a sycophant presiding over a shambolic court, and the direct of communications, Craig Oliver, as clueless.
At the reception, Cameron also appeared to hit out at Theresa May, the Home Secretary, by attacking her for doing a “brilliant” job – a devastating statement from the Prime Minister which pundits say the Home Secretary is unlikely to survive.
