Gove shows he needs schooling

I note that Michael Gove thinks Ed Miliband should deal with Unite as an "entryist" group in Labour in the same way that Neil Kinnock grappled with Militant in the 1980s.

Whatever view one takes of Militant, Mr Gove's apparent ignorance about the history of Labour is astounding.

The trade unions, by forming the Labour Representation Committee, founded the party.

Perhaps the Education Secretary is simply trying to make the point that labour history should be on the curriculum.
