I thought this was cut and dry, but it seems the Planning Committe are trying to show some balls with their stand against Gove’s crusade.
I’m sure the Free School will have Gove’s support, and he will no doubt be able to bring some pressure to bear. Still, it makes for interesting times.
Bedford Borough should take a look at what Birmingham City Council are up to. Thier stand against Gove’s crusaders seems a lot more robust than a few anti-academy/ Free school tweets from the likes of Michael Headley.
