    That's is a nice way to be rewarded for all the hard work.

    "It is the latest development in a long-running saga involving Martin, who was knighted for services to education and was once a favourite of Tory ministers, before falling out of favour as concerns grew about financial management and governance at the school."

    "The hearing was also told about troubles at Bright Tribe, which ran 10 schools in the north and east of England which are now being rebrokered. The academies troubleshooter, Angela Barry, who was brought as interim chief executive, refused to give details about ongoing investigations but apologised for past failings."

    That's all right then as long as you apologised.

    I’m not sure why my comment was removed, I was quoting from what the OP said. Can someone clarify why it has been removed?

    I believe that you may have alleged that he may have been up to no good when there is no indication of this in the article or my post.

    Not on the topic of the content of the article but the way that young man is looking at Gove's outstretched hand in the picture is certainly how I'd react too. :D
