Michael Gove has not just changed the goalposts. He has also changed the rules without telling the players and the referee, and then changed the score after the game has finished.

It is not just grade boundaries that have been changed. Why have pupils' controlled assessment scores been changed? Mr Gove must go. He is a liar and a cheat.
