    Much excitement over the political implications of Education Secretary Michael Gove’s stunning decision, leaked to the Daily Mail, to scrap the 16+ GCSE exam and bring back in its place the academic O-Level and more vocational CSE.

    In the wake of the festival of Shavuot, when Jews have been celebrating the giving of the Ten Commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai from where he presented them to the Jewish people camped at its foot, I have been brooding over the fact that Zionism has become a dirty word in Britain and the west.

    The jailing by Pakistan of the doctor who led the CIA to bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad is clearly an outrage. The Pakistani doctor, Shakil Afridi who has been thrown into prison for 33 years for treason, should be regarded as a national and global hero for helping run bin Laden finally to earth.

    We can now all see, can’t we, with what fathomless contempt the Obama administration treats the security of America and the west.

    On and on it goes, this deranged vendetta against Israel and the Jews that we are not allowed to call by its proper name, on and on with obsessional intensity into ever-more alarming and astonishing bigotry and violence that is even now passing virtually without comment in wider British society.

    So now we can see the outcome of the witch-hunt against ‘Islamophobia’. With the conviction yesterday of nine men for organised sexual crimes from rape to sex trafficking, the full horrific details of more than two decades of sexual violence against young, predominantly white girls living in children’s homes in the north of England have been revealed.

    Britain's Education Secretary Michael Gove has received many plaudits – and not a few brickbats -- for the dogged and determined way in which he is pursuing his aim of rescuing Britain’s education system from the swamp of ideological insanity and professional demoralisation into which it has long fallen.

    People seem surprised that the idea of elected mayors has received such a thumbs-down from yesterday’s local elections and referenda on the proposed post for individual cities. Personally, I’m not surprised at all.

    It’s no surprise at all to learn that A-level and GCSE grades have indeed got progressively easier over the past decade. The only surprise is that, after more than two decades of denials, the education establishment has finally admitted it.

    The great grand-daddy of the man-made global warming scam, the fifth horseman of the eco-apocalypse James Lovelock, has now recanted. Well, sort of. Don’t get too excited.

    In the event, Denmark pulled back from the brink. Following my piece here a few days ago about the witch-hunt against the President of the Danish Free Press society Lars Hedegaard, the Danish Supreme Court ruled last Friday that he was not guilty after all of hate speech and racism – the second time he has been acquitted of this charge in a roller-coaster of a case which has stained Denmark’s reputation for justice, free speech and common-sense.

    In decadent Europe, freedom of speech is dying. Loudly trumpeted as a ‘human right’ for any attacks on America, Israel, Christians or on the core values of the west, it is swiftly transformed into ‘hate speech’ and the shutters are slammed down on the speaker whenever Islam is in the frame.

    A poll of voters in the south London borough of Bromley, taken by the Times (£) to gauge support for Labour’s Ken Livingstone and the Conservatives’ Boris Johnson in the London Mayoral contest, is fascinating – not just for what those polled were saying about the two candidates but also about the Tory Prime Minister, David Cameron.
