In a blog for TES, England's shadow education secretary Stephen Twigg described his opposite number, Michael Gove, as a "shark in a tornado". He criticised several of Mr Gove's policies, including qualifications reform and the free schools programme. "Like a shark in a tornado, nothing is left undamaged. Profit-making schools? Why not. Not enough primary schools? Make class sizes bigger," Mr Twigg said.

Never voted @LabourParty before but will in 2015 to save the #education system from #Gove.


Useless Twigg.


Hey education ministers! Leave our schools alone #fedup #pinkfloyd


As per the movie, will Labour policy be to throw a bomb into the #sharknado? What will the fallout be?
