Given he wanted all schools to be above average, I'm not sure how this will pan out.

Will the public finances be ok? Will we have enough money to spend?
Will we be paying anything to the EU?

I hope he gets challenged on that to see what economic plan he has to ensure enough money is available - and if not, how will he get the money?

Given the way we're going with the obesity epidemic he'll probably have no choice....

I want to fly but it doesn't mean that I can or I will.

More baseless promises.

Is that an extra £100 million or will he adjust for inflation and actually increase it?

I love this:

Q98 Chair: One is: if "good" requires pupil performance to exceed the national average, and if all schools must be good, how is this mathematically possible?

Michael Gove: By getting better all the time.

Q99 Chair: So it is possible, is it?

Michael Gove: It is possible to get better all the time.

Q100 Chair: Were you better at literacy than numeracy, Secretary of State?

Michael Gove: I cannot remember.

What's he going to do? Have a whip round amongst his wealthy Tory mates?

Does he think the British public will fall for that one twice?

Meh. It's an increase of 4.3% dressed up. I can't get excited about that.
