I was impressed. Mr Gove had only that week announced that pupils ought to learn their tables by rote, and here was JJ only a couple of days later doing it, and quite plainly enjoying it. I thought I'd write to Michael and mention how successful he had been, then it occurred to me: JJ couldn't have done all that stuff in two days; he must have been practising for months.
Now I was really shocked. Mr Gove was the Education Secretary for all of England [and some other places] and he is suggesting that our pupils should learn stuff that they are already doing.
What else doesn't he know? And is he really in the right job?
I think we all know the answer.
