Ofsted chief Sir Michael Wilshaw this week claimed that the Department for Education and thinktanks were leading "right-wing attacks" against the schools inspectorate for England. The former headteacher said the sniping left him "spitting blood" and accused the government of briefing against his agency. But sympathy was in short supply on Twitter.

Wilshaw bleating about inspectors crying in his office will gain no sympathy from teachers I'm afraid.
