Gove's Bible project runs into a spot of bother
« on: January 18, 2012, 07:00:46 am »
I have only just spotted this story.

A plan by the education secretary, Michael Gove, to send a copy of the King James Bible to every school in the country each including a personal inscription from him has run into trouble after government sources reported he has been told to find private funding for the project. Sources said David Cameron told Gove that while he supported the idea, the education secretary should avoid using taxpayers' money for it.

Personally, I hope the word 'avoid' means that my tax contribution is not used, although there seems to be an element of uncertainty later in the story.

A senior education department source said enough public cash was available to press ahead and No 10 had merely indicated that "sponsorship was desirable".
