Like giving your children actual poison

In a move critics are describing as “a bit unorthodox”, Education Secretary Michael Gove has announced the eradication of all works of ‘degenerate literary art’ from school libraries.

The public burning of English-language books published after 1900, and of any book whatsoever that was originally “written in foreign”, will take place in every school across the country later this week.

Mr Gove said “Last week’s statement that we were going to do away with so-called ‘classics’ like Of Mice and Men, and To Kill a Mockingbird was actually

Princess Kate has been at the centre of a row this week, after totally unprovoked comments about Hilary Mantel that she made in a speech recently.

The duchess, who does not know Mantel personally, said that the double Booker Prize-winning author had “A face like a wad of unshaped dough, with two holes poked in it for eyes. Her teeth are yellowed and uneven, and her hair is swept back off her wrinkled, overlarge forehead in what may be the most aesthetically offensive hairstyle since Mo Mowlam.
